    Disappointing experience

    Definitely on the list of the 5 worst hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Don’t show up after dark - despite calling ahead to let them know we’d be arriving late we had to wait outside for 10 minutes before the night time “security guard” meandered over to let us into our room. There was no bottled water available nor anywhere to buy anything at night in a reasonable distance - make sure to plan ahead and bring your own. Luckily we had iondine tablets. Breakfast was a joke - it was supposed to come with a coffee and juice per person But they couldn’t make our coffee due to a power outage. We asked for a bottle of water (45 R) instead of 2 coffees (35R per coffee) and were told it wasn’t allowed. We even offered to not have the juice either - still no. To top it off it was the worst eggs Benedict I’ve ever had. And they held us hostage for 10 minutes to pay for the water since the credit card machines were acting up due to lack of power despite having confirmed before getting the water that we’d be able to pay with a card.

    Wonderful spot to stay while penguin watching. Couldnt be any closer. The sign in the parking lot asks you.to check under your car for penguins before leaving. By the way there is a front desk, just up the steps, left of the restaurant.

    If you want to be right on the water, I don't think there's a better place anywhere on the peninsula. You're step from Boulder's Beach, and the patio deck for breakfast and drinks later overlooks False Bay. The snorkeling at Windwill Beach is outstanding and is about a 5 min walk away. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The only reason I took a bit off was that checking in late night was a bit of a mess. The staff leave early evening, and the nightwatchman isn't set up to handle check in. But write them ahead of time and you'll be fine. We got stuck in a lesser room the first night, but the very understanding manager put us in an upgraded room for our other nights, so it all evened out. If being close to the water is important to you, this is where you should be. A great value for the price. Wifi in our stay was ok in common areas, but I think turned off at night. Breakfast is delicious, and the coffee is really good, too! If you're around for a few days, I recommend driving over to the west side for a sundowner cocktail- spectacular!

    For nature and penguin lovers

    Very friendly staff. Comforatable room and amenities. Although there are not much around the hotel, penguins and mornimng walk around the coast is much worth the value. Highly, very highly recommended if you love nature and penguins!

    Great little hidden gem

    Very basic accommodation but location is perfect, right in boulders beach. Staff are super friendly, communal fridge to store drinks and food. Rooms do not have a fridge or Tv. U can take your own drinks and have take aways on the stunning veranda and watch the sunset. The receptionist Cailin is so professional.

    Have stayed here over the years many times! Quality remains the same and the closeness to the beach is AWESOME for penguin encounters. I would only say don’t expect fine dining but the food is good and service great!

    Situated by the public car park just 5m from the beach, this B&B & restaurant is a real gem. Our room was clean, comfortable and reasonably sized, the staff were first class, helpful and accommodating, and the restaurant food was excellent. Would recommend to anybody & everybody.
