Me and my boyfriend were starving and came across the hotel (literally almost the only venue in this place). We wanted to sit in the nice restaurant (which was absolutely NOT fully booked) but were told that we had to sit in the bistro if we are not staying at the hotel (btw it was 6:30, so no prime time)....

We have visited the Arniston Spa hotel at the end of October. We have chosen one of their most expensive rooms to have a sea view and following reviews we were just excited to make it there. On arrival I was told my room would be next to the dining room . My first reflex was to ask , Won't...

We arrived in Arniston on a cool, windy night so we had little opportunity to explore the surrounding beaches. So we were able to take full advantage of our room and loved the brandy that was waiting for us when we settled in. Great accommodations, plenty of space, delicious breakfast.

Incredible view of the sea, which comes at a price. Travelled with a 9 week old baby and the camp cot was ready in the room when we got there. Comfortable room, with nice little extras, such as bottled water, filter coffee and fresh milk. Lovely breakfast spread. Service at the restaurant was good. Would definitely stay at the hotel...

We initially booked for 2 days, ended up staying for 4, during one of the coldest weeks of August'16. We booked a sea facing room,with a fireplace in the sitting room and a balcony. Vintage and cosy, yet very spacious. There were some chic and modern rooms, depends on your preference. The view was nothing short of spectacular. Even though...

Beautiful views from Hotel, Room 206 well appointed, great bed, tasty rusks. Room was quiet. Staff friendly and helpful. Reception can be crowded and loud at times, But still staff are helpful. Suggest that if wanting a "couples" stay - do not stay during school holidays, as there are children running around and dining room can be a bit noisy.

Reception staff were courteous but lacklustre. They need more training in using their initiative and being more proactive. Our room was very comfortable, the bed good. The room was well appointed, with lots of thoughtful touches. It was spacious, with a lovely balcony facing the sea. The bathroom was well equipped, with a bath and shower. Lovely toiletries and delicious...

Arniston is not very big at all, and the hotel is therefore the main attraction in my view. We did, however, enjoy the stay tremendously. The food was excellent, room service is great and the spa was also a bonus to our stay. The rooms are very spacious.Though we did not travel with children, they have activities for kids and...

The Arniston "Spa" Hotel is really the only game in town, situated right on the shore in the middle of this pretty Indian Ocean side village. It gets a lot of bus tour traffic and seems to handle them well. Front desk manager reminded me of Mrs. Fawlty from Fawlty Towers. THe hotel needs renovating; allis clean and in moslty...
