“Wonderful Spot”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Super room in a lovely house. Excellent facilities. Friendly welcome, and great breakfast. St Francis Bay is without doubt one of the prettiest places we have visited, and well worth a detour, if not a stay.

I recently had the pleasure of spending two nights here at the end of January. My room was one of the nicest and cleanest that I have been in ages !!. Great shower !! & great pressure !!. I am always disappointed with a weak shower !!. Inge & Stephen are really great hosts, and would have no trouble recommending " On the spot B/B "

Inge pays a lot of attention to detail. We were a party of five and she learnt and remembered all our names. The rooms were very elegant, clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class and nothing was to much trouble. The pool was sea water and the temperature inviting,

Room Tip: They are all close to the pool

We stayed here for two nights on our travels through South Africa. St Francis Bay is a beautiful place to stay for a couple of days and On The Spot was the perfect place to stay. Rooms a perfect size, exceptionally clean and the complimentary sherry very welcome. Breakfastreally set us up for the day with plenty of choice. Inge went out of her way to chat to us about our travels and was very helpful in planning our days. We wouldn't hesitate in returning again if we were in the area.

Inge is really wonderful and definitely an attentive host! She easily accommodated an unexpected extra guest at the last minute with no hassle and really goes the extra mile to assist with anything! (The farm stall was so great - thanks Inge!) The rooms are clean, luxurious and beautifully appointed, where every convenience has been thought of and that home made breakfast is delicious! Beautiful area, excellent accommodation, we will definitely be back!
