We just had a one night visit but it was great. A good find. The hosts are extremely helpful and the rooms extremely well furnished and clean. Would like to have stayed longer but perhaps another time. An ideal location for a few friends or a couple of families to stay together. Breakfast excellent

10 seconds stroll from fantastic views over the ocean and beach! A short drive from restaurants and bars. Very helpful, friendly hosts with superb breakfasts - what more could you want? I would definitely like to go there again.

Bright, modern and very clean. Rooms nicely placed around a small pool/patio area. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was nice and you are welcome to use the kitchen and dining facilities if you want to feed yourselves in the evening. We would certainly go back.

I travel occasionally for business and am in the property valuation industry. Quality, privacy and value for money play a valuable roll when I choose my accommodation. I don’t want to pay a ridiculous price but rather fair and realistic for the best accommodation possible. On the Spot B&B succeed in all these criteria and I will definitely recommend this... More

We enjoyed the hospitality of both Inge and Stephan. They truly made us feel at home and helped us with ideas of what to do and where to go. Breakfast was incredible and Inge would come up with some nice surprises for breakfast. Our room was spacious and extremely clean with good quality bedding. Our compliments to Inge and Stephan...

Our 30 days trip through SA didn’t originally have Francis bay included, but after a rather negative experience at the Storms river area we needed to find a nice spot to relax. We found the On the Spot B&B by accident, and we can say luckily we did. The area is nice, there are beautiful coastal walks as long or... More

We spent one night at On the spot B&B - well located, clean, spacious (amazing bed!), really good breakfast and 2 very friendly owners. Shame it rained while we were there so our walk from the guesthouse to the port along the beach and back left us very damp!

This was everything you could hope for from a B&B. Spacious and very comfortable room, very friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The building was very well designed with the rooms surrounding the very attractive pool. It had rained non-stop for several days, and we were unable to make full use of the lovely surroundings. We would love to return to St... More
