Very beautiful place and the people are very friendly. Food is good and prices are fair. Our Room was tidy and clean with a view over the ocean. A place to relax or you can do wonderful walks to. Must be ‪In summer even more special.Any time again.

We stayed in the hotel on 5 July 2016 as part of our road trip through the Wild Coast to the Western Cape. You have to go far to find such a beautiful view from your room. Situated almost on the beach, this hotel is a gem. When we entered our room, we were greeted with sparkling wine and a... More

This hotel is nestled between mountains, and overlooks the ocean, a perfect location for a Wild Coast escape. We decided on this hotel as we wanted to see Hole in the wall, which is very close to this hotel, so it was perfect! We booked a Sea View room, which was lovely and spacious. The décor can do with a... More

Did not stay here but came for their buffet dinner. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We got there a bit early and the staff told us we could go down and have some coffee first which was really nice and they offered free snacks of calamari and mussels. When we got to the buffet the food was very tasty.... More

On arrival it was quite busy with people checking in but the lady at the reception did what she could considering she was working by herself. We were in the room above the restaurant. The room needs some refurbishment. The bathroom even more so. The shower is over the bath tub with a curtain rail! 😦 The balcony has plastic... More

Old time feel to the place with all the amenities you would expect of a coastal resorts. Lovely breakfasts and dinners also great quality. Room was nice but only nice, a bit awkward if you are reasonably tall and stand in the bath to shower, got to bend the head and neck otherwise the roof intrudes. Highly recommend a 4... More

This was a nice step up from our usual hostel spot. Rooms were lovely and big. Great upgrades. Great buffet meals included. We got a really good rate on special. Staff was awesome! We love coffee bay and I hope if it develops they don't ruin the natural beauty of the beach and take it over with awful franchises!

The hotel is a bit dated so don't expect 5 star accommodation. However for the price you pay we found it very reasonable as it included dinner and breakfast. We stayed at the hotel over the Easter weekend and could not secure a sea view unit and stayed in two of the back rooms. Apparently this option is a bit... More
