After having a very stressful 6 months I decided to have a mini break not far from home. The location was perfect as I could walk down to the beach and plenty of places to eat. The room and bedroom were both ideal and clean. If anything were to change it would be the television in the room to be...

Hi Julie Thank you for reviewing our Establishment. We apologize for the stuffy room, windows are often kept closed due to the wind conditions, which dust up the rooms very quickly especially in the afternoons. Our sea view rooms will be revamped and upgraded in the very near future :) and I'm sure on your next visit , you will...

Just a block from the sea, therefore easy walking to get onto the lovely beach. Beds were extremely comfortable and lovely big shower. Room also spacious with ample cupboards as well. Tea and coffee provided is more than sufficient and you have access to a communal fridge and microwave. Communal balcony on first floor has a lovely view. Car need...

If you are ever in Melkbosstrand, I would recommend this place. Relaxed, elegant atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely sea views from some rooms and the breakfast is delicious. I prefer this guest house when I have to stay over in Melkbosstrand.

What a great place to stay! The back of the property faces the ocean, with only one row of houses in front. Hence, you are around the corner from the beach. The pictures don't really do it justice.. Bedrooms on the ground floor open out into the garden with a pool.. Some of the bedrooms on the second floor open...

This place is a little gem ideally located within close proximity to the beautiful local beach. I had a room with a picturesque view of the ocean and I could hear it too. The cleanliness stood out for me and the staff were very hospitable. Overall, this was very good value for money.

Room has partially sea view from the upper balcony where one can sit. Remember there are buildings in front. Situated one street block from the sea and therefore walk distance to the beach. Room was neat and clean. Too small and no place to put your suitcase but on the floor. The towels one white (medium size) and one sand...

This is by far the worst B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything seemed to be too much effort. Upon arriving, one of my questions was what the wifi code was. As an answer I got a cranky "Look in the map". Breakfast is served between 6:30 and 8:30. When you're on vacation, who wants to have breakfast at 6:30?...
