The management and staff at this hotel went way beyond their call of duty to ensure an excellent event. We were able to talk through and make changes to our arrangements. The function was well organised, catered and serviced. The hall decor and table arrangements were exceptional.

My stay at Meander Manor was amazing. The service was exceptional especially Christian the host. He went over and beyond to make us feel at home. The hotel is in an amazing location close to the beach.The rooms are lovely with alluring views. Breakfast was delicious and so were the succulent lamb chops I had for dinner. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Everything was EXCELLENT!!!!

Fantastic location, very accessible. Great staff and good value for money. Our room was well appointed and had a great view. the only negative was that previous guest had clearly smoked in the room despite the non smoking signs.

Booked for a one night stay at what looked like a lovely place on the internet but it was not to be. It turned out to be a South African version of 'Faulty Towers'.
The room given to us had a faulty TV and the bedside lamps did not work, this was reported to reception, who turned out to be kitchen staff doubling up as the receptionist.
The issue was attended to by a chef doubling up as house maintenance. Needless to say the problem was not sorted out and we were moved to another room.
The room was lovely and I believe was the 'honeymoon suite'.
We settled in and we thought that we were sorted, but alas, an hour later, we were told that the room was booked by the 'owner' for one of his friends and we were then moved a second time to another room!
What a fiasco! More items were found not to work or broken in the third room but we left it at that and left the next morning, not brave enough to try breakfast, and putting the bad experience behind us. We will never return to the Relax Inn!

At 7pm we were left in the dark without hot water to bath our 10week old after a day of load shedding. The back up generator failed to start that morning at 7am when the power went down, but it wasn't till we and another couple threatened to move out at 6pm that a mechanic was called from Durban an hour away to get the genie starting. The hosts were rude, disinterested and defensive in addressing the issue so we moved out. The genie wasn't fixed till 9pm. Facilities quality poor. Staff ok. Hosts incompetent. Facility mismanaged. Don't waste your money. Stay away from this place.

I spent five days in Meander Manor, business trip. The location is really a paradise, with breathtaking view on Indian ocean. Rooms are big, breakfast and lunchbox very good as well. WiFi available in all rooms, and in the garden as well. I recommend it.

The Meander Manor is one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the view is outstanding.

The quality of the guest house is very high, from the furniture, to the linen, to the breakfast- which was great!

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and really go the extra mile.

We were overall very impressed, and sincerely hope to be able to go back in the future!

If it wasn't for the cleanliness and room quality, I would not rate this place as very good. Had to wait for 45 min (???!!!) after arriving at the check in time as the room was never cleaned? Not impressed. Hotel is clean, food is nice and the grounds and view nice.Personally, wouldn't stay here again. I have travelled far and wide - some places only get one chance to impress me.
