We stayed at Kob Inn between over New Year for 5 nights - wish it could have been more! Violet and Daan are wonderful friendly hosts - thank you for the fabulous morning walk! All staff were friendly and willing. The facilities are excellent, rooms clean and spacious, bar area over looking the rocks memorable. We had the most amazing...

We had another lovely stay at this family hotel. Best service, best food, best views! This was our third stay at Kob Inn & we will be back in Dec 2017. Nowhere in SA can you sit in a Pub built on the rocks and get a cold beer within 2 minutes!

We have just returned from a 8 night stay at Kob Inn. What a wonderful experience, from start to finish. We were collected at the airport by Dean and made to feel at home before we had even arrived. The hosts Daan and Violet went out of their way to make us feel welcome, always having time for a chat....

It's no wonder people are back year after year to visit this amazing hotel. Great food, atmosphere, staff, owners, beach and fishing. Everyone at the resort makes you feel as if you're family. Will return!

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed our stay. There are lots of things to do - beaches, horseback riding, fishing, just chilling out in general... But at the same time the place is in desperate need of renovations. Among other things, the swings and jungle gym for the kids desperately needs to be replaced with something new. We were...

Hi Thank you for your review. Renovations were being done when you were here and have now been completed. Looking great.

Kobb Inn is situated in the most fabulous spot. The staff and owners and food are all great. That said the place needs a good refurb, it is rundown and a little effort would go a long way in making it perfect.

Beautiful and pristine beaches only used by resort guests. Three great meals a day, great bar and with regards to activities: the place has EVERYTHING. Powerboats, canoes, quad bikes, hiking trails, mountain bikes and horses. Rooms are OK, but it's the resort as a whole that makes it awesome. Kind of structured and old fashioned, but we liked it. Would...

Where in the world can you be on the sea, pristine beach walks, 3 gourmet meals a day, etc? Wonderful location, views and type of holiday for young and old. Friendly atmosphere. What more can you ask for?

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.
