Wow, what a wonderful find! I wish we could have stayed more than one night, I can't wait to return. I love everything about this little hotel, a little piece of paradise. Our room was lovely and so carefully prepared. There are so many places to just sit and enjoy what the bay has to offer or take just step...

It would be hard to find a better beachside location than this in South Africa; more like a Caribbean resort with its own virtually private mile long beach. Our room was fabulous with a tremendous beach and sea view and most others we could look into seemed pretty good as well. There is not a lot to do around here...

A neatly presented professionally run family hotel located right on the beach with easy access to a beautiful lagoon, both begging for morning and evening strolls. Our sea facing room on the first floor was clean and spacious with a king bed and plenty of hanging and drawer space for clothes and even a small seating area. Through sliding doors...

My wife and I had three nights at this delightful hotel. The greeting was warm and friendly and we were taken to a lovely room ( 4) with a superb view of the ocean.The food is outstanding and wines very reasonably priced. There is a lovely, flat beach and a very pleasant lagoon which might break through after a heavy...

This hotel has a fabulous setting right on the beach front at Morgan's Bay. We stayed for three nights and two nice rooms. But the price of the rooms and our stay for three people B&B was on par with European prices and when you are paying those types of prices you expect everything to be perfect. Examples-when the room...

This gem of a hotel is not easy to get to but it is definitely worth a detour. You must fly to East London and drive about an hour but you will be rewarded by the spectacular views of the Indian Ocean from your bedroom. We had a spacious suite with nice sized bathroom. Unfortunately the shower leaked but this...

Everything about the hotel was perfect, the staff were extremely friendly, the food was gorgeous and the facilities were excellent. We had massages...

Missed our annual pilgrimage to Morgs last year, so it was great to be back this month. Wonderful welcome from the Warren-Smith family and Erica on reception. All the staff from the dining room, bars, chambermaids and even maintenance, are friendly and go out of their way to help - even when you lose your bank card, which was found!...
