The view from The Tops are just amazing. We ate all our breakfasts (which was great) in the B&B and plenty of restaurants are located within walking distance. The beach can be reached using a small to tunnel under the highway. You can park the car and walk to everything. The hosts were really good and made sure we enjoyed...

We loved the fantastic location with great views to the beach. The hosts were very lovely and helpful, the breakfast was great. Fantastic were also the birds, which came to feed on the terrace. We will come back again, but then for several days

The Tops is located in a beautiful area with stunning views right in the centre of the Garden Route. Ideal as a base for nature trips. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. All in all a very charming place to come back to. BTW: WIFI is free.

Access to the hotel can be somewhat difficult if you have any mobility issues but once there you couldn't wish for a better welcome from Tom and Magda, the proprietors. Rooms are comfortable and views are stunning.

My girlfriend and I love this beautiful place. The hosts were better than the view which was spectacular to say the least. Definitely a place we will return to annually. Oh and also what a great breakfast!!

First and foremost, the view from The Tops is breathtaking! And the staff is friendly and welcoming. But the room quality is poor. The room (we had a self-catering studio) heats up like a sauna in the early morning hours, so be prepared to wake up sweat-soaked at 7am. The curtains don't darken neither do they keep the heat out....
