A very poor hotel, definitely not 4*, although lobby area gives impression of being far grander than it is. Our problems included: - room was very dirty - this picture is of my childrens bunk bed. - dirty rug - shower leaked so much so it flooded bedroom area - draft from balcony door which blew the curtain - handed laundry in at 7pm and were assured it would be ready the following day however when we tried to collect it the following day at 8pm it had not even been sent to laundry and was still in reception - breakfast was disappointing and very small

This is our third visit and we will go back as circumstances allow. The breakfast experience on the 1st floor was adequate but not up to the standard expected. Everything was available but the ambiance is lacking.

What a wonderful stay with breathtaking views of Mosselbay. Very comfy rooms, we even had a view of the beach from our bath. Our room was on the 10th floor. Highly recommend this wonderful hotel right on the beach.

Nice view and location and room was spacious but there were cockroaches in the room. It was reported to the staff on duty who moved me to the room next door. The manager on duty next day had no idea what happened…found that strange and not very attentive. To pay over R2k for 1 night for this hotel and get cockroaches….unacceptable. Definitely not worth it and would rather go somewhere else.

We stayed for 3 nights. I paid in full in advance, but when we arrived at the hotel, I was told I still owe double the amount that I fully paid which I refused to do. After further discussion and waiting time, it was sorted out eventually and we could get our room key. Breakfast was good every morning, but the food at their day/evening restaurant is really not great at all. Tried pizzas and the chicken schnitzel there and it was just chewy and bland. The room was of good size, clean and had a nice view. Good size pool to enjoy, but it was hot and there were no umbrellas put up for the chairs by the pool. I asked reception if they can put some up, but they said they will check if they have but never got back to me or put any up! The vending machine at reception also had a problem and we had to drive to get cold drinks for the kids and something for the room. The beach bar below plays very loud music till midnight, and I could not get to sleep each night before the loud music ended.
