Very thankful to be accomodated the place is close to the beach, however the stay left very little to be desired from arrival to departure. The worst is the tv that's controlled inside you watch what they want and volume stays on max even when you want it low....no running water from taps. Definitely not a place I would go back to.

We basically used the establishment as a sleep over en route to Cape Town. It was very neat and comfortable. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. The TV didn't work. Did not matter to us as we only needed a place to sleep after driving 900km. The area in which it is situated is rather upmarket.

The nightly rates are very reasonable and the accommodation is adequate. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are well furnished. Humphrey, the owner, is very attentive and helpful. Very close to the beach. Security could be increased by adding burglar bars to the windows, and the addition of an aircon would be very helpful, as it can get extremely hot. Overall, a lovely accommodation.
