    Fabulous

    The attention to detail was amazing. Very well done. Looked at Spa - pity I did not have the time to experience the treatments - will defintely go back to enjoy.

    Firstly, the directions to the place need to be more clearer. The board at the entrance states The View Guest house - was extremely confusing as we were looking for a hotel. Secondly, in spite of all the attention to details, one major flaw - the floor in the suite was not level - this caused the furniture to rattle - made a sound- everytime you sat on a chair or on the bed - very embrassing. Thirdly, with the unlevelled floor, everytime we had a shower, the water would flow out of the shower into the bathroom. Fourthly - please cater for vegetarians - I understand you have an ala carte menu - but to eat a toasted cheese & tomoto panini in a 5 star resort for 2 days is very boring - suggest you have different menus for different days or use a buffet breakfast.

    I liked our room, spa bath and the pool outside our room.

    The limited variety of the breakfast, The fact that it was so hard to get a late check out. and the small features that add warmth to a stay especially for a couple choosing tht hotel for there anniversary.

    Very comfortable. Staff helpful, friendly. Food excellent. Spa services professional

    I especially booked this hotel to be near to the Airport. The hotel was about 40 minutes drive away. The Airport it was close too was closed several years ago. Extra cost of over 300 rand fare to get to the Airport we were to use !!!¬ Are we to be compensated for this ???

    the room was neat and comfortable

    The advert is misleading, the hotel is far from the beach, and on a hill on a one-way street. The buffet breakfast had to be ordered off the menu, the room was cleaned at 16:00, and it was not value-for -money. we paid R1700 per night. Definitely not a 5 star hotel!

    Very good

    I enjoyed the reception and first day of the stay. The hotel was really thought out well.

    We tried to use the airconditioner and that did not work, when we reported it no one came to attend to the problem. The standard of presentation and cleanliness was not kept throughout the visit and the room was not made up or serviced on the second day.

    Good

    I like the location. I stayed there in 2011 and returned because my stay and booking were as confirmed. I decided to book again in 2012 and everything was perfectly handled up to the confirmation and done timeously.

    At 2pm my room was not ready and my friends room as well was not I had booked in September a Delux room but was put in a standard room far smaller than my bedroom at home after I complained to the reception I had to go around looking for a better room. I setlled for what was available at the time but definately not what I had booked as the room was still small but better than the first one. I had booked for my friend as well around the same time, a Delux room. She got a big room alright but with an ordinary bathroom. She had no gown. I had come to relax but was annoyed by other guests who had loud music almost the whole night. I had to complain again to the reception when it seemed to be after 11pm. There seemed to be no cleaning done outside the rooms , Info about the room did not match the reality as we did not get what was indicated at the time of booking unlike in my first stay in 2011 when everything was perfect. Did not like the breakfast at all no self service irritates. no variety of items served.
