This is our second visit to this fabulous resort. This hotel has the ideal location right on the beach. We stayed for 9 nights. We had well appointed sea facing rooms, falling asleep to the soothing sound of the surf. Once again we enjoyed the wholesome tasty meals, especially the Saturday seafood buffet. The not so good weather did not...

We were at Kob Inn over Christmas 2015. They went the extra mile with decorations and a stunning meal on Christmas eve, to make us feel like we were celebrating at home! Father Christmas arrived for the children too! The hotel managers speak to you at meals and over tea - really getting to know their guests. The service and...

Kob Inn scores in virtually every department - scenery, food, accommodation, service, value. Besides all these Nature is the real star. Hiking, fishing, horseriding are all on the menu. The food is especially good. Kob Inn is a beautiful and worthwhile visit, so don't miss it.

The owners and staff are very accommodating. The beaches and surf are virtually right out your door. Food was very nice with a well stocked bar just steps away. This was a great experience and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a great time on the wild coast. Mind the access road as it is rough.

We had a fabulous six days at Kob Inn. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful sea view from our room and loved the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks at night. I hope we will be able to pay them another visit soon.

We been to Kob inn several times over years and every time it gets better. We had a wonderful relaxing stay with our family. Perfect accommodation and excellent meals. Management and staff wonderful and pleasant. Best place to stay on the Transkei coast. We will definitely be back next year for much needed family time.
