Outstanding! A truly magnificent establishment with incredible views and friendly and professional staff. The highlight of my visit was actually interacting with the staff and the owner is the comfort of the downstairs bar, while watching the Springboks beat the All Blacks. Memories that I will cherish. Highly recommend!

The location of the hotel is strategic because it on a mountain facing the sea. The views throughout the day stimulate your mind. During sunset you see the place in a different light. It is an environment for the matured individuals because of its tranquility.
