Loved sitting on the verandah in the sun. Delicious calamari salad. Fabulous wedding in the dining area. Room was spacious with high ceilings and great views.

We extended our stay and were lucky to find accommodation at this awesome hotel. We were greeted with homely friendliness, and the staff went out of their way to ensure our comfort. We arrived on new years eve, and despite the long hours worked, and how busy they were, no duties were compromised! Although the hotel is next to a restaurant and bar, in the room you are away from any noise and left with beautiful views of false bay. Great food, great people, absolute value for money!!
