      Hole on the wall holiday

      Good stay at hole in the wall, only problem was there were people drinking wine in the pool, although there is a board showing no drinking in the pool and one of the ladies took off her clothes, and there was not enough oversight by security to stop this. Drive to the hole in the wall is challenging with many potholes on the tar road and the gravel road is bad if using the gps.

      Stunning ocean views from Hotel.

      What a wonderful view from our hotel room and the walk to the hole is not so far and it is stunning out there. The hotel room needs attention, the one fridge is not up to standards, shelves are missing, as well as the stove looks not good. The people that try to sell goods outside the fence are very annoying. The last 30km to Hole in the Wall Hotel is very very bad, make sure to take the road via Coffee Bay, that is a much better option.

      Stay in February.

      Reception could not find our booking as says head office was on the computer. The restaurant did not have lettuce, feta or haloumi cheeses also after one beer did not have any more of that kind, also only 3 types of white wine, very expensive. The chalet was average clean, chair in the lounge broken and second day no water after they said it was repaired, so left on the 3rd day unable to shower etc. staff did not seem bothered about anything. Very disappointed overall.

      Pleasant Surprise

      The hotel is an unexpected haven of comfort and good food in a very remote place. The rooms are old but in reasonable condition. Enjoyed the walk to the Hole in the Wall. Road access is just OK in the dry (lot of potholes) but in the wet it’s 4x4 stuff (adds a chunk of fun to the journey). If that’s what you enjoy it’s great. Great areas for cycling and some hiking.
