Simply the best all round hotel experience. The sea vistas from the sea facing rooms are second to none. The dinner service was exceptional. Best sleep in a long time. Richard and his team have taken this hotel to another level.

Hotel's Favourite
We have just spent a week here and I am so sad to leave. The location is 10/10! The sea view is amazing, the food was spectacular, we were so spoilt with delicious 5 course dinners, breakfasts and lunches, and I looked forward to reading the menu/news every day. The bar staff are highly attentive and friendly (thank you Dan for your hospitality and keeping our drinks filled) after a day of fishing or swimming the canapés on the bar were so yummy and all the staff so welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable and my son enjoyed the games rooms and kids activities. We unfortunately didn’t get to visit the Deck this holiday as we never really had a chance as we were too busy enjoying the Hotel. Thank you Mandy and Erica for your hospitality and kindness we hope to be back soon x

Morgan Bay Hotel is marvellously located right on a beautiful stretch of beach, which is great for swimming and walking. The hotel staff are always friendly and welcoming. The interior decoration of the hotel is tasteful, contemporary and very comfortable. We stayed in the penthouse, which has magnificent 180 degree sea views. The food is delicious and the menu is varied. This was our third time at the hotel and we plan to go back soon. Definitely the best hotel on the Wild Coast. (A big plus is that all the roads leading to Morgan Bay from East London Airport are tarred and in good condition.)
