A wonderful place to stay after nearly three weeks travelling through the Karoo, Midlands area and the Battlefields area. Canelands was right on the beach at Salt Rock and is a beautiful boutique hotel, The food was very good and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Our room had a wonderful view of the sea with a large Balcony. As their was a wedding taking place on the Saturday with dinning arrangements having to change due to an imminent thunder storm we were offered dinner and wine in our room compliments of the manager. Sadly we could not use the Balcony - however we enjoyed watching a rather wild thunder storm whilst having dinner. The hotel provided a wonderful relaxing stay helping us to unwind before our travels back to the UK.

We spent three nights here relaxing towards the end of a 16 night tour of South Africa and loved every minute. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a deluxe room which had amazing sea views and a huge balcony. We ate here every night and the food cannot be faulted, it really was excellent and very good value for money. Breakfast was also top notch. The service from all staff members was some of the best we’ve had on all of our travels and was always with a ‘genuine’ smile. We would like to mention one staff member in particular who was an absolute delight to be around and that was ‘Joy’, her happiness, friendliness and enthusiasm was infectious, thank you Joy! One small disappointment during our stay was that they were undertaking maintenance to the swimming pool, but this of course couldn’t be helped. There was a thunderstorm one evening which was amazing to watch through the huge patio doors of the bedroom. One note to make is that we actually visited in October 2022 but I was unable to go back that far when writing the review, sorry it’s taken so long!

A wonderful place to stay right on the beach at Salt Rock. Canelands is a boutique hotel which is luxurious, the food is great and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. Our room had a wonderful view of the sea and daily we could see whales and Dolphins from there. The hotel even has a bell ehich is rung when a sighting is made! A wonderful relaxing place to stay especially after arriving in South Africa after a long flight.

Awesome views for the beach, very clean. Tight parking entrance....went there for the spa only. The massage was okay but the pedicure was a rushed job & they seemed to just want it over & done with. Initially had been denied the robes for the spa, allegedly bcz all the robes had gone for laundry but in the end they gave us robes...

Good morning Thank you for taking the time out to send us your feedback, following your recent visit to Canelands Spa. Your comments are more than most appreciated, as it is through feedback from our guests that we are able to maintain and improve on our service delivery and offerings to our guests. My humble apologies that we did not have robes available at the Spa, however I believe it only took a few minutes to obtain robes from Housekeeping. Your comment regards to your pedicure will be addresses with the Spa Manager to ascertain what happened. This is a first and definitely not the normal standard of service that we pride ourselves on, and we do not take lightly to any service orientated complaints. Once again, thank you for your feedback Regards Jodi MacMurray General Manager

This Hotel was just incredible, we had the most gorgeous room with an incredible view over the ocean. The food was incredible we felt so welcomed in the whole area. There was nothing we could’ve complained about. We were lucky to see whales and dolphins before we left and that even put a cherry ontop of our stay. I had a tiny car accident (caused by myself) and Thobani took incredible care of us and even helped us out with getting an police report. All we can say is we would definitely come back and just recommend this gorgeous place.

What a lovely place. The views of the sea are stunning. Definitely book a room with a Seaview. The staff were friendly and the food at 2 Shrimps restaurant was good. Rooms impeccable and spacious. Would definitely recommend

The warmest welcome from all the staff. Suites are beautiful with views to die for. Ultra comfortable bed with gorgeous linen. Breakfasts are amazing and not your run of the mill fare. Canelands feels like home away from home and we can't wait to be back there.

We stayed just the one night at Canelands and sadly did not have dinner there. However after a long flight we had a warm welcome and a beautiful suite with fabulous views and a massive balcony overlooking the sea. We had a generous glass of wine (very reasonable price) while we waited for our upgraded room - very comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast the next morning. Would not hesitate to stay here again if we come back to the beautiful north cape.
