We were in Robberg House (Room 11) The room was very spacious and light & bright, which we enjoyed. We only stayed one night, so didn't really get to enjoy the hotel facilities, but it's position right on Robberg beach is amazing. Even though we did not have a view of the sea from our room, the deck just across the hallway had stunning views.

We spent 4 days there over the Easter period. Pretty run down. In need of an urgent facelift. Beds uncomfortable. Lights falling down. Tiles in shower broken. Not recommended. Such a pity because it is situate in an amazing spot right opposite Robberg beach

My fiancee and I had a lovely time at the beach lodge, beautiful views lovely place. Only issue I personally has was with the seafood platter. Which was terrible. The prawns veins weren't cleaned out, in fact the prawns weren't cleaned at all, and the mussels were just awful. The putrid guts of the patterns ended up permeating through the entire meal which pretty much ruined it. Breakfast was good, so was the sandwich. The only other thing was that the rooms aren't carried on booking.com. so the room I thought I booked want actually the room I got which was extremely disappointing. So please make sure you know exactly what you're getting before you book. Other than that not a bad stay.
