                  Peace, calm, tranquility. What a wonderfull place. Beautifull walks through the forest. The Bashee river, wide and strong. A pristene beach where you can laze your days away. Real African charm at the hotel where one is spoilt beyond belief. If you want true rest the place to go.

                  Once you have endured the rough Transkei road to The Haven Hotel, you are treated with a relaxing hotel. The owners will go the extra mile to accommodate their guest needs. I was on a road trip and needed fuel for my adventure bike to make the closest town, and they made a plan to get me 5L. Really impressed.Being on the coast the addition of a ceiling fan would be welcomed. Dinner and Breakfast was for champions and the kitchen boss knew her story serving up great meals!

                  Very basic accommodation and terrible food for the price we paid. Hotel staff ate in the dining room with guests and food stuff not available to paying guests was available to them! A very uninterested lady started the "Checkin", but then handed us over to Phumla who was the only STAR in the place! Horses also need their feet trimmed and properly fitting tack. Lovely area otherwise.

                  This was a nice place, in a beautiful and tranquil environment, with very friendly and helpful staff. The meals were spectacular.
