I dont normally give out 2's but reserved this specially for this occasion, If you want to stay on top of the beach, perfect. Don't expect much else though. On arrival, we had to drag our cases by ourselves up some narrow staircase, we didnt know who the staff was, as they wore no name tags, we asked 3 times for a restaurant booking and the only person that did it was a lady called margaret, who we dubbed 'the do-er' as none else knew or did anything we asked. Staff dont seem to have an office and one day the waiter from the restaurant next door was on the reception desk(bit wierd), they sit in foyer and Geust lounge doing their work (and accounting), noses buried in laptops. We had a surprise voucher for a bottle of bubbles, but they could've atleast make it a full bottle, not just half. However the glasses we drank out the first night was still there when we left 3 days later. The shower pressure was minimal at best, the shower seemed a bit dated. We thought it a nice touch when our car was washed the day of arrival, however the 3 rd consecutive day of our car being washed it was a bit weird. I'd say get in a better host, update the decor a bit and help Geust upstairs with the luggage and when you give stuff for free, atleast don't seem so Stingy. I would definitely not go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Location: The most enviable location on the Garden Route. At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, jutting into the ocean - any closer and you would be in it! - as well as the estuary of a large lagoon- no neighbours but nature! Exquisite, unimpeded 180 views (360 from the roof deck) of the vast blue ocean, golden beaches, large lagoon and the imposing Tsitsikamma Mountain Range. Nature all'round, yet not isolated, but only a 2-minute drive from the town centre and its trendy shops.A pristine beach: accessible from the sheltered cove adjacent to the Manor - ideal for swimming in natural water – you may boat across to an unspoiled and usually deserted beach, far from built-up areas, traffic, crowds and noise. Blissful solitude and a complete immersion in nature, with only the sound of white-crested surf tumbling at one’s feet and the calls of a medley of seabirds – a veritable bird sanctuary. Becalming and rejuvenating - the perfect antidote for stress,. With luck you may even find the mysterious and sought-after pansy shell (sand dollar).The Manor: built in classic Georgian style, with an airy double-volume foyer and eleven double bedrooms, most with private patio or balcony. All rooms are decorated in crisp white and en-suite to a shower cubicle with/without bath, and a queen bed or twin beds, TV-hospitality package, free uncapped Wi-Fi, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, fan, heater and hairdryer. The sash windows allow the fresh ocean air straight in. ... more less
