The b&b has no direct access to the sea at all: you have to walk for not less than 1 km to reach it. No air-conditioning as well. The room are close to the living room and starting from 6 30 am you hear a lot of noise of staff working around. The photos advertised on their web-site are misleading.... More

We stayed in the lodge for one night to break up a longish drive but we enjoyed our short stay. The place is kept very clean and the breakfast was very good as well and the place has very nice lounge/dining areas with great views. Our room overlooked the hotel car park but they have other rooms with sea views... More

Although we enjoyed our stay in a nice room and had great breakfast, I experienced a billing problem which the hotel refused to resolve. E-mailed them several times and received a reply stating they would review. I sent several follow-up e-mails, but received no reply. Too bad.

Arrived late and welcome by Stacey ( new owner ) very nice rooms. Carpark behind security gates at no charge. Good location if your moving off to Addo ( like we did ) or east along the coast. Very nice breakfast. Stacey very helpful in advising what to do and where to go. Shall return if in area again.

The Marris family are very gracious hosts and the staff at the friendliest I've ever met. Home cooked breakfast to order when you wake up. Karen, the mom, has a ton of great recommendations for local activities. I highly recommend the Dolphin Dance Lodge and will be returning myself!
