Beautiful location with stunning views, the rooms and hotel in general were well decorated and very clean. Comfortable beds and a wide choice for breakfast but I had to knock one star off because there was no soundproofing of the bedrooms and we could hear every word, every step and every door that banged as though it was actually in...

Spent 2 days in Penthouse Room with stunning views across the bay, spotting seals floating in the water having survived the whales! Met on arrival by a most impressive young man, Sean, whose willingness to make us immediately at home was a great start. He showed us to our room, made sure we knew what there was to see in...

Stayed for one night, booked the penthouse. Very nice. During the season a great place for whale watching. You can enjoy the sunset on the balcony with a drink from the mini bar in your hand. A whirlpool bathtub is available.

Hotel scheduled by travel agent and a gem! Windows with ocean view. Whale sighting right from my bedroom: unbelievable! Staff very helpful and had reserved dinners for us. Breakfast was very good as well. Great walking to local Walkers Bay reserve with caves and rocks and beaches. Not much else close by except outstanding restaurant. Highly recommend!

Sea Star Cliffe - ?????? I chose a one night stay at this accommodation based on the view to the sea below, in the hope that we may see one or two whales in the bay from our room. We were not disappointed, both with the very high specification of the room / beautiful views of the sea and beach...
