We had a lovely stay at Beachcomber Bay. From the friendly welcome to the scrumptious breakfasts, everything was really super. We will certainly go back, and would recommend this to anyone.Another review complains about the hot water not being available all day, but this is simply part of living in South Africa. We had lovely hot showers and comfortable nights.

I only stayed for 1 night, but enjoyed myself. The private walk to the beach completes a great experience. Sharon is also very helpful and will surely book the whole weekend soon.

Great location! Beautiful hillside view of ocean and only about 200 paces from the nice beach, most of it being steps. Only a short drive to Margate and Ramsgate so a number of restaurant options and walking and beach options. Nice reading room with windows on three sides. WONDERFUL breakfasts with croissants, muffins and juice; then coffee or tea to start and then your choice of health, English, traditional, or continental. English was our choice and yummy with eggs to order, bacon, sausage, tomato and toast. Nice place settings and ambiance as well.We had Room 4 – nice LARGE and pretty tub...
