Spent a couple of nights at this well known Ballito landmark. The first time I stayed here was some 25yrs ago, then it was likened to entering a tropical resort, bright airy & beautiful to behold. But, the old girl is certainly showing her age now and needs some TLC and modern renovation to pull her back into the present....

The service was poor, the staff were unresponsive and the room was very tiny and cramped. On arrival, we were greeted by a huge cockroach in the bathroom. While we were there, the TV stopped working and the staff were totally unapologetic. There was a strong smell of cooking in the passage. The Crayfish Inn is an absolute rip off...
