The Dunes at Arniston is the perfect base for beach-friendly romantic getaways, family holidays and business breakaways. We are conveniently situated immediately before Arniston historic seaside village in the Overberg amid fynbos-rich landscape and sandy dunes. At your home-away-from-home escape, we provide comfortable accommodation and top facilities for private guests, weddings, special occasions and business functions. Our friendly staff is on hand and eager to make your stay with us as memorable as possible. Every year, visitors from all over the globe flock to these parts to see the southernmost tip of Africa where the two oceans meet at Cape Agulhus. Still, while it is a popular holiday destination, Arniston and surrounds has retained the legendary natural beauty and tranquil crowd-less charm for which it is well known.

We stayed over at The Dunes and received a warm welcome by the friendly reception staff. We were shown the dining area as well as the pool area as i wanted to know where to swim. We stayed over in the standard rooms, please note these don't have a kitchenette, however the rooms has a wash up basin. However the rooms are spacious and clean and comfortable. The nights we stayed over was a bit cold and the rooms had no air-conditioner or heaters, maybe they can include these on the cold nights. The breakfast was excellent and the dinners was impressively delightful. Many thanks to Mercia and Mary for making us feel extra welcome.

We stayed at The Dunes from 12-14 March 2021 & found it very pleasant . The Hotel is about 2km from the main town & beaches. Stayed in a luxury room which had a lounge area with a fridge & tv which had most of the DSTV channels. Very nice big bathroom with a sizeable shower. Stayed in room 79 which was on the 1st floor & had some views over the fynbos . The service throughout was excellent , from the welcome at reception to the dining area. We had breakfast , lunch & dinner . Breakfast is included . The food was very good and the portions very generous at reasonable prices. Dining area overlooks a very big pool & grass area. There is a steam room & gym. The gym equipment needs attention & replacing hence the 4 rating as we enjoy our gym. The Waenhuis Cliff & beach area also only 2km away , a few nice trails & sand dunes to climb. There is a cave which can only be reached at low tide , definately worth the trip. Wear some shoes /slops that may get wet but great views & photo opportunities. The rock formations are spectacular. Struisbaai & Cape Agulhas - southern most tip of Africa within an hour's drive , Bredasdorp & Napier even closer . The Dunes is a nice base to operate from , quiet , good value

We found staff very friendly and helpful, but the family 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in needs attention, no aircon, no fan, we found kitchen shabby and old and utensils in drawer were not clean. Rooms desperately need a revamp. But we found location good and close to Arniston.

Hosted/attended a conference here. The conference facilities were very outdated with poor audio and visual equipment. WIFI connectivity was at it's weakest inside the conference venue were it is most needed.

We were really impressed with the service and the value for money. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff was friendly and very helpful. I would suggest upgrading your games room but all in all, everything was perfect. Will definitely recommend and hope to see you again in the near future.

I had great time. The facility was awesome and appealing. The executive suits were all the more a great experience. The food in the morning was divine and I would recommend the place to anyone wishing for calm coastal experience.

The accommodation is superb and was enough for our needs. There are lots to explore in the area and we felt safe to leave all our belongings in the rooms. The staff are very accommodating and extremely helpful and professional. Great for family gatherings and big groups as well as smaller getaways ❤️❤️❤️
