Reception was friendly and helpful, and the cottage was very pleasant and well equipped. The only disappointment was that we did not have quite the sea view we expected; the cottages are not quite 'on the beach' - you need to walk a few hundred meters to get that full coastal view, rather than being able to enjoy it with...

Excellent place to stay and good value for money. On departure I booked to stay for 2 weeks in December 2017. Lovely facilities and enjoyed viewing and hearing the ocean. Pleasure to deal with the staff from the booking office to the room staff.

We stayed inone of the small cabins. They are very well equipped and include what is needed. Cleaned daily. Really a beautiful spot with views of the sea. Only point for improvement is the wifi: signal is slow and weak. Otherwise definitely recommended

Brenton on Sea has an amazing beach, but you have to descend a path to get there - it's far below the bluff where all the various houses and cottages are. The cottage we staid in at Brenton on Sea Cottages was small and compact, with a queen-sized be on one side and a cottage-length counter on the other along...

We had a good stay at Brenton on Sea Cottages. The service is very good. Our apartment (self catering) was cleaned every day! The management delivers good service and has helped us very well. The apartments have a wonderfull view over the Indian Ocean.

Would Definitely be back. Already suggested Brenton to a couple of people. Well organised, Chalets are cleaned daily. And you are right on the shoreline by the beach:-) Long walks from dusk till dawn.

We spent a weekend at Brenton on Sea Cottages and will visit again. Service was friendly, rooms were clean and well equipped and the overall stay was top notch! Lovely view from the comfortable dubble-bed and also the two decks - one in front and one in the back, so you can always have a bit of a shelter from...
