Cintsa Lodge
Ranked #1 of 1 Chintsa B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 January 2010

My husband and I set off on our honeymoon down the Wild Coast on 16 December. When we arrived at Cintsa Lodge on 21 December we were welcomed by a locked front door, an Alsatian tied to a rope and another one barking at us inside the house. My husband rang the bell with no response, he tried again, and at last he rang the 'night bell'. The owner, Gerhard, eventually opened up and greeted us with “What is wrong with you? You only have to ring the bell once!”. I then replied with “What is wrong with you?” since we have not been welcomed in this manner at any of the other places we stayed at. Ignoring the rudeness, my husband said that we’d like to check in under our married surname – I called the week before to change the surname I booked under and was told that it’s irrelevant. He then rudely asked whether we booked. As my husband was signing in, Gerhard said to him: “If you wife does not want to stay here, you can find other accommodation.” Of course we decided to rather spend the night elsewhere than stay with such an arrogant and rude host. Never have we been treated so disrespectfully. Please do not support this guest house!

Reviewed 29 December 2009

European clean style with lovely finishes. All recently done and well maintained. Exquisite pool area if you hit the weather right. 10 min walk down to a beach that goes on forever and is breathtakingly serene. Breakfast delicious, health, fresh. Only knock is that owners are not engaging, one has poor English command & smokes (not in house but odor lingers), 2 huge furry dogs=allergies and smell.
