Initial observation was that 305 was more a hotel setup than a guesthouse and less of a personal touch, we normally stay up the road at a very personal B&B, mistaken I was, Jolene put kicked my trepidation right out the window, what an asset to 305 this shining light (aka Jolene) is to 305, nothing but nothing was to...

We did not stay long enough to say what was very good, it was raining and we did not get to look around the property or see it's real potential. Breakfast was fair and service friendly. Welcoming staff great.

Enjoyed my stay here. It was relaxing and the Bed was so comfortable that I didn't want to wake up. The staff is so friendly and helpful I felt like I had know them for ages. I would highly recommend this place for a long term holiday or a quick business visit.

Nice ocean view from my room, the sound of the waves crashing, the lovely Jacuzzi for relaxation after a long day of solving problems at work. I would recommend this place if you want to take your spouse on a honeymoon or as a getaway.

27 pensioners from Howick on a 4x4 trip visited for lunch. We were given the menu a week before. We were so impressed with the highly efficient and extremely polite and pleasant waitrons. The great variety of excellent food was attractively served and it was not too expensive. The lawns and view added to the relaxed holiday atmosphere. Thank goodness...

Simply the best guesthouse one could visit for an amazingly good price. Staff is very friendly and rooms spacious, neat and equipped with everything one needs. Great sea view and to top things of its near many attractions such as the galleria shopping center. Best value for money for a B&B guesthouse on the coast.
