Kob Inn has everything you need for an incredibly fulfilling getaway - a perfect balance between relaxation and adventure. We loved exploring the pristine beauty of the coastline, rivers, bush and birdlife, which we did on foot, horseback and by canoe. At the end of each day, we enjoyed sundowners at the bar which has a spectacular view, before a homely meal and excellent wine. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home and cater for your every need. Will definitely be back!

Relaxed vibe, wholesome food & reasonably priced activites (despite the captive market) for everyone to enjoy. Love the involvement of the broader community too. Spent 5 nights which was quite a different experience to the one night stop on the Wild Coast hike.

We were welcomed by friendly and polite receptionist and shown to our rooms, with an equally helpful and friendly Enoch that took our bags from the car. The room was so pretty and inviting with all information re facilities, whose who with the staffs names and jobs and meal times. The meals were fantastic, Daan, Violet and all the staff were friendly even the other guests were friendly. My only complaint was that the 3 nights we spent there was not enough. Thank you for a marvelous break.

Difficult to get to but worth the drive. Violet was the perfect hostess and always present. The food was great and the rooms clean. We did a lovely walk to Mazeppa Bay and crossing the river on the "ferry" was quite an experience!! Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful stay, very friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and safe. Worth seeing. It was rainy the two days in April, there for we couldn't go for a walk to Mazeppa bay. Next time we'll do that. Beautiful ocean views.

Very good location. Good food. Friendly staff, really outstanding. all of them. Owners really involved in the management, makes a real difference. Good rooms with sea view. Very nice hiking trails in the area. A nice touch is the library that is adults only.

Kob Inn has been our family’s holiday destination for close to 20 years. As we moved through our life stages, Kob Inn has ensured an enjoyable retreat, regardless of our changing needs. Our 4 month old baby had his first visit there this past week. We look forward to sharing this magical resort with him as he grows. From splashing in rock pools, running on the beach, horseback riding and learning to fish on the Wild Coast. Kob Inn will provide a platform for fond childhood memories with loved ones.
