Good location with ok facilities

We stayed at Whale View Manor to mainly go to the boulders beach to view the penguins. Our family enjoyed our time there but the hotel is pretty basic and rooms are a bit small.

Lovely guesthouse

This hotel was great. The only thing missing for us was a bit more hospitality. Everyone was very kind, but we often wondered if anyone else was actually around or in the house. Additionally, the WiFi is very spotty- only an issue if you need to do any work or hop on the internet for some reason. Overall a very nice, clean, well-located guest house.

Very professional staff. Hotel is immaculately presented with wonderful breakfast. Rooms extremely comfortable - some with amazing views of the sea. Ours was mountain facing and still a nice outlook over the garden and mountain. Sea view veranda for guests use and guest lounge with honesty bar. WiFi available throughout. Off street parking. Would recommend.
