Beautiful holiday. Daan and Violet were perfect hosts. Not many hotel owners will change and repair a guests tyres! Excellent value for money and delicious cooking. Can't recommend this Transkei experience enough.

The Trek South Africa team and I started our 4 day Wild Coast Meander from the Kob Inn, we were only here briefly but during our short pass through we felt incredibly well looked after and welcome. The location here is great, you can hear the waves crashing against the rocks and the bar looks right out onto the ocean....

This is the perfect place for a family holiday with wonderful walks along the coast and up the river valleys. Very comfortable accommodation, delightful staff and excellent meals. Gravel road in good condition. Recommend walking shoes, sun tan lotion and a camera. Take binocular to watch the whales and dolphins. Wonderful birding.

Fantastic setting and views from the rooms onto the Wild Coast. Hosts Daan and Violet caterered very well for my groups needs. Bar staff very friendly. Dean the Chef cooked up some great food. No WiFi - so you have to talk to each other.

Hi Thanks again for your photos! They once again made us realise that we live in paradise!

A must for all visiting the wild coast. Plenty to do for the whole family. Friendly staff, great service and the food was excellent. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. Will definitely visit again. We wished we could have stayed longer.

We really liked our stay at the Kob Inn where we were brought by shuttle from East London to begin our Wild Coast Meander to Morgan Bay. After we stayed at all the other inns/hotels along the route, we liked it a little less, just because the other hotels were all stunning with beautiful settings, making Kob Inn seem a...
