Beautifully redecorated, the public areas are lovely and accomodating. A lot of the old bits have been retained and it has the lovely old world feel. Very pleasant.
Not really anything not to like
the position and facilities were fantastic as well as the breakfasts
service a little slow at times
Service & Friendliness of Staff plus the location was superb
The service was great and the people was friendly. Relaxing atmosphere.
The location "on the beach" is superb. Breakfast on the verandah overlooking the waves - what a great way to start the day !!! The room was extremely comfortable and the balcony an additional plus. On the negative side the cost of meals was very high (the curry buffet at R190 p.p. did not give as good a value for money as other nearby eateries)
