We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Lofts. The room looked out on to the bay, and was large and airy. The most modern conveniences were also available. Upon arrival we were offered a glass of port which was a nice touch! I would definitely make another trip to the Lofts when we next go back to South Africa!
