    Amazing property, perfect for a weekend away with all the necessary amenities. Great location as well! Only one small issue was we didn’t have hot water on one of the days. Otherwise will happily go back again!

    The location of gallery studios was amazing. We had a huge suite overlooking the beach where we could watch the surfers. The shared deck was spacious with private access to the beach. Overall we would definitely come back, it was just a shame we couldn't stay longer this time.

    Enjoyable stay in a nice town

    Quite excellent hotel. Part of the Harbour House Hotel. We upgraded at little extra cost to a room in the main hotel building. Watched whales from our room balcony! Room was large and very clean. The gigantic bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good. We ate breakfast able to see the sea where whales were swimming.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Lack of customer service !!!!!!!!

    We had a trip booked to South Africa before all the mess started with the Covid 19 troubles. Due to the obvious crises, our whole trip got cancelled. We managed to get refunds for all of our bookings on this trip, except this establishment. We tried phoning them with no anwers. We even had customer service try and get hold of them. Everytime we ask for a progress report, just come back with the same answer "The only time we got hold of someone, it was to a staff members that said that the manager needs to issue the refund" It has been 4 months dealing with this issue and numerous phonecalls that never get answered, i am sorry if an establishment can not find the time to get back to you on a refund request,q I personally would not even want to use their services in the future. Its such a shame some establishments lack basic customer service.

    The service, location and cleanliness were great, the only downside was that it's hard to find the location for checking in.

    A disjointed experience

    A disjointed experience started with locating the reception to checkin. This was an office on the first floor of the mall where the accommodation is located on third floor accessed by one elevator then round balcony of shopping mall to another elevator accessed only by electronic key to second floor where rooms - ours 5m X 5m approx are located - also one penthouse where most brochure photos were taken giving totally false impression of property to be allocated with a decent sea view. Our room overlooked rooftops & was very noisy outside. The room was not ready upon checkin time. The mattress was thin & horse hair tough & carpet commercial airport style heavy service. There was a small kitchenette where we were able to make a decent capsule coffee. The whole experience was an absolutely minimalistic room experience & the only redeeming factor being I was granted a 50% refund to compensate the quality of the accommodation which brought the Ridiculous cost factor into line with US $125.00 per night paid online for what was obviously the penthouse- which was not available. This was misrepresentation at it’s best & the listing is not honest. All said & done the location is central to all shopping bars & restaurants & once checked in, refunded & familiarized was not too bad. The management absolutely must rectify the listing & charge accordingly for the standard of accommodation offered. I would not stay again under the present circumstances.
