We had a most enjoyable time at Brenton; the cottage was clean; double bed, on the small size as we're used to king size beds; bedding fresh; shower excellent. Kitchen adequate as not much cooking done. Venue wonderful although disappointed with lack of views.

This was a very nice stop-over on our way from Stellenbosch to Jeffrey's Bay. This cottage had a lovely view of the sea. It was great being so close to the beach. As two ladies travelling, we felt safe walking on the beach. It is such a beautiful beach and the surrounding areas.

Benton on Sea is a very tranquil place to stay. No bustling cars or people activity which was perfect. Its a professionally run establishment. 2min walking from a lovely beach and wonderful deli with great coffee. Units are clean and well equipped. Website is a true reflection of the place. Only thing that bothered us a little is being able...

Receptionist was very helpful and accommodation clean, fresh and exactly what we needed for our one night stay. Just a short pleasant walk to the beach. What a fantastic view across the bay. Will stay there again

As always, we had a good experience with nothing negative to report. We had reason to request Chris to fix a cupboard door which was done immediately. He also offered to let us have the use of an outside table which was most convenient. This has been our 7th visit and there is no reason for us not to continue...

Good quality accommodation and excellent service from caretaker and cleaning personnel. We did miss the braai facility in front of unit 22 - if it is possible to build a braai next to unit 23 it will be fantastic. Bed mattresses could be better - one get use to the back ache.

The team was great with the booking arrangements. The arrival went smoothly with no glitches. We found the facility clean, the cleaning staff were friendly and accommodated any additional requests that we had. The facility is well placed and the walk to and from the beach is pleasant.

Friendly and supportive staff, cottage was cleaned every day, linen and towels replaced as needed, braai facility cleaned every day. The new care taker couple is also making a huge difference and assisted promptly one evening when there was a tripped circuit breaker at our...

Visited in 2002 and it was great to see the place was still kept in good condition. Chalets were all neat and tidy. Close walking distance to the beach. Pool on the property to cool down after the beach.
