This hotel is outdated so to speak. Definit not "valuwe for your money"! It need a urgent make over before i will consider staying there again. Room s are big though and the staff frienly and that is basically all that is positive about the place. The meals are not to bad. It is idealy close to the beach and main bathing beach and maybe this is another positive point for this property. I recall this hotel when I was a kid and stayed there then some 40 years ago. It was absolutely fantastic then but with my recent visit I was really disappointed. It is graded a 3 star but I think it should be down graded or not graded at all! It does not earn a 3* grading. The place date back to the 50's or 60's if looking at the furniture. It is like walking back in the past. The boiler is run with coal to serve hot water and the smell from the drains is terrible!
The railway line is some 15 metres away from the property and the noise is overwhelming when trains move through. The pool is fine but one can't use it in winter time though, the water is freezing cold.
Scottburgh is a quiet town with not much action except during school holidays and specialy December during the festive season. Shows are held at the main bathing beach area and the noise can be heard at the hotel. Not very romantic or relaxing if one wish to have a lazy break away.
