Paradise Found
A truly magical stay, really brilliant dinner and all drinks included which makes it better value for money. Lovely staff. Only downside is the rooms are tired and the whole pool and bathrooms need maintenance. Also a wider breakfast choice perhaps it is a bit limited. Thanks to Kim for looking after us perfectly.

The hotel’s amazing location and the service we received were both definitely 5 star. However, the interior is not 5 star as rated. There’s nothing wrong with it and we had no issues, but marketing it as 5 stars is not realistic. Will definitely return though.

Wonerful small hotel on beachfront
The hotel has just 6 rooms all of which have a marvellous view over the sea. It is beachfront and you can open the gate and walk onto the beach. The rooms are really huge and well designed.and had free Wifi There is a mini bar but unlike any other mini bars I have encountered this one is free. There was also a complimentary bottle of both red and white wine in our room. In the general lounge are was a much larger complimentary mini bar. Food was first class. The staff were very friendly and I can well recommend this establishment.

8/10 Very good

Didn’t meet our expectations
We had very high expectations of this property having stayed at the one in Franschoek. The location on Kommetjie beach and the decor was faultless. But what really makes a boutique hotel experience something more than a “Holiday inn” is the service and in this this property was sorely lacking. Our reception, on arrival, was casual and cursory - in a hotel with 6 rooms, it would not be unexpected for a guest to be greeted by name. The room was tastefully decorated in shades of duck egg, cream and beige, with stunning views. The complimentary mini bar was not well stocked - barely the basics. Breakfast was a small buffet with an ample variety of cooked to order items - the individualized smoothies were a nice touch. This was an expensive stay which failed to hit the mark. In summary, the location is perfect, the food average and the service awful.
