                  The room smelt of old fire. It was more expensive than Protea Hotels in the middle of Cape Town. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable with a good location close to the beach but also the road. No comms were available and the WI FI was sketchy.

                  I loved this place - it was very well equipped and private and in a great location. The facilities were fantastic. The restaurant and all the people were very friendly. It was a quick drive to Elands Bay where I went surfing.

The room was very good with a fire place(but very little wood and the wood was wet), you also had to buy xtra wood if you wanted more...it is winter at the moment... a bar fridge with only water in it. We had no tv in the room and also no wi-fi or even cell phone reception. There was not a bath only a shower and the floors was very cold. No slippers and no gowns.
