Close to the small fishing village , which is a must to explore. The big hotel is just around the corner, good for meals and drinks. Erwin the owner is knowledgable about what's around and what to do. Loved the honesty bar, good selection. Breakfast more than ample. To cold for us to swim, but a good sized pool.

This hotel is really horrible. And the owner was rather unfriendly and abrupt. The decor is really outdated. And the pictures on the Internet are nothing like how it really looks. The rooms are bery dark. And the Wifi doesn't work.

Great little guest house in Arniston. The owner Erwin is a lovely chap with heaps of knowledge of the local area (& most of Africa..) He is great to chat with. The rooms are perfectly adequate, everything works. A full breakfast is served and is cooked to order, whenever you want it. The pool area is lovely and a real...

Stayed five nights on a return visit and was not disappointed. Rooms in the main building are just right for a beach holiday. The proprietor Erwin is so relaxed that you can not fail to be instantly at home. He is full of tips on how to enjoy the surrounding area. Breakfast is when you want and always good. This...

We were really looking forward to visiting the town of Arniston for its white sandy beaches and interesting architecture. But this hotel was not what we expected. It really needs a renovation, for one. The furniture and decor dates back to the 1970s - not just stylistically, but actually! And the hotel supposedly offers wifi but it doesn't work at...

This was our second visit to Arniston Lodge in the lovely seaside village of Arniston. Two years ago we had an upstairs room with a panoramic view of the sea and quaint village houses. This time we stayed in a less expensive downstairs room, which was adequate but no view, however steps away from the pool. The breakfast is fantastic...

The lodge was very very nicely decorated, very welcoming hospitality and very good tips about the area, as well as a very friendly and knowledgable owner. The owner was kind enough to let us use the kitchen for some food for my baby daughter when we arrived late

We stayed at Arniston Lodge for 3 days from December 20, 2014. It was a most enjoyable stay. The place is central and we could walk to the beach, pub, friends and restaurants. The owner is friendly,helpful and knows the area very well. A good breakfast was served every morning and the room was just what we needed. We will...

I arrived @ this lodge on the 14th of June, I was supposed to stay until the 17th. I checked out the following day. They put me in a small room @ the basement, more like a dungeon. No light coming through, dormatory-style shower, 2 extremely small single twin-beds with extremly narrow duvets. It was a cold winter's night, even...
