Found the room comfy and clean. Staff friendly. Well positioned in Shakas Rock, close to main beach. Didn't have breakfast , even though it was available, went out to eat. Wouldn't say it's for families with small kids.

Took the family and we were all looked after unbelievably well. Food, cleanliness, and overall service was really impressive. A big plus as well, being located only 2min walk to the beach. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks again Fairways.

Was not impressed at all. I have no idea how your hotel and been given a 4 star status. Accommodation was poor. Breakfast was terrible. Had to constantly ask for warm food. Needed to microwave. Jacuzzi in a Deplorable state. Will not be visiting there again!

With minor improvements it will be perfect. The room was large enough. The aircon wasn't working and there weren't extra blankets. Get someone to work 24 hours. Having to stand at the gate for a long long in the night is not safe. Get new towels and a qualified chef

This "could be" and I am sure "was" a vibrant upmarket established not so long ago, perfect candidate for "Hotel Impossible". I could kick myself for paying well over R4,000 for 3 nights after being misled by their website. Rooms are well furnished but dirty, our handtowel had scary stains on it and it was obvious that the bed linen...

As we do every year, we booked into our favourite hotel for our anniversary weekend. Sadly, things seems to have gone a bit on the downside since our last visit. We opted to have the Bed and Breakfast option. Definitely will not do the breakfast again. I will however discuss this with the hotel, but unfortunately their was no staff...

No remote control in our room, no tusks to go with the tea. There's no help around at night when we looked for someone to help with the tv , no one was there. Parking by the bottom gate and walk all way up
