To Lyn, Marcel and I think it was Dennis, thank you so much for this. We arrived at the last minute without booking and they were able to accomodate 11 of us. The setting is great with the best views onto the beach and sea, the rooms were pretty small but we didnt care as the experience was outstanding. When...

The reception was very warm and friendly and we felt at home instantly. With breathtaking views from the deck and cuisine that left your mouth hanging open in awe. The Oceanview Hotel is a MUST for anyone interested in a magnificent breakaway weekend or long weekend. My wife went for a facial and body massage that impressed her somuch that...

We are seasoned SA travellers, used to all types of accommodation and happy to rough it or enjoy some luxury so long as we are getting value for money. We have mixed views of our 2 night stay. On the positive side the ocean view room was spacious, nicely decorated and clean with fantastic water pressure in a rather grotty...

First off , the stay was tarnished by the attitude of the reservation clerk. I refused a sea view room located in the hotel building itself. The reservation clerk told me in no uncertain terms what I had ordered . Can you believe somebody else telling me what I had ordered ? Well the website is totally misleading. Sea view...

After a drive on terrible roads, we finally arrived at the hotel. What a peaceful haven! We had rooms directly in front of the ocean; the rooms are spacious and clean. Lovely big shower in the bathroom. Private terraces in front if the rooms as well as deckchairs give you the opportunity to relax and just enjoy the view. The...

Wonderful location and staff were helpful. However, large number of stray type dogs all over the hotel including sleeping on a chair in reception somewhat off putting. Goats in the hotel complex also made this a very rustic experience. The rooms were not as clean as one would expect. Not somewhere I would go twice.

Yes, the building is almost 100 years old and some of the bathrooms are very dated but a clean, old bath is just as good for bathing in as a modern, state of the art new one. The rooms are big and clean and the beds new and so comfortable. The food is great. It is not French cuisine but...

We had a small renovated room below the kitchen and dining room. Decor clean, simple and cozy. They had a small flat screen TV in each room with a good cable bouquet. You could even get some free WIFI reception although the phone signal was much faster. Service was brilliant and friendly. Management has trained staff well and they live...

I have been staying at this hotel on and off for some 10 years now and have seen management change a few times but the one constant is the location and beautiful views even the roads have improved. Most of my trips have been business with only two being for leisure. This is always a great stop to relax and...

Spent two nights at the hotel. The hotel is located overlooking the bay. The rooms are clean and the whole hotel complex is neat and tidy. The beach is right on the hotels doorstep. The beach is clean and safe for children. The staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food...
