“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

This hotel did not disappoint physically although I found the people a little faceless lacking the warmth of South African staff. We had four suites and each was a wow. The ideal view is of the sea and some faced the hill behind, which considering the price was a little disappointing for those of us landlubbers who do not live at the sea. Our suite was magnificent with a gorgeous view along the coast and into the beyond.
Our children would have liked to have stayed there the whole holiday and found it relaxing at the pool.
Our suite was about R6 000 which was rather pricey but the view made up for it.
The restaurant food was adequate but the service needs a little work.

Room Tip: Sea facing!

Truly a disappointment. The location and setting are sublime but, that is where it ends. Service is appalling as is the food hygiene - dead fly in the food. The manager did not seem too concerned when we reported it to him.

Room Tip: Lovely hotel - don't use the restaurant though.

Thank you for your review. It was with sincere regret that we took note of our failure to deliver the standard of services associated with a 5 star establishment and which we work so hard towards delivering to all our guests. All the issues raised have discussed with the relevant department managers in order to ensure that the relevant action is taken to rectify our shortcomings in this regard.

as a seasoned traveler, it is not often a hotel excels in all departments, yet at the Views they have achieved this distinction. A 6 star experience at a 5 star venue, what a delightful hotel, with the accommodation, service, costs, cuisine, cocktails, Spa, venue, management, facilities all rated 100%. A must for honeymooners in SA, you will not go wrong, and for beautiful sunsets and quiet reflection and rest. there are extreme sports in the area like paragliding, and its proximity to wine farms in Calitzdorp, the beach, Mossel bay, game reserves, natures valley, cape st Francis etc etc make this an ideal holiday, and the Views hotel the diamond in this area. will i stay here again, absolutely, and I have stayed at a number of resorts and hotels in this region, but the Views is my best.

Room Tip: If possible spend the extra and get a premium luxury room, front facing to the sea, however there ar...

Amazing welcome - Earl is a star. The room had floor to ceiling windows and a stunning view of the sea. It was beautifully decorated throughout. The staff were attentive and personal. The cocktails were great, as was the good. A must stay place.

As many others have said, the Views has a stunning location on the top of a cliff above the beach. From our balcony we watched the birds, the fishermen and the para-sailers going by at their own speeds.

We found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming and although the food was not 5*, it was perfectly fine.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the Views for a very relaxing stop on the Garden route.

We stayed at the Views for only two nights on our 10-day roadtrip up from Cape Town to Johannesburg... and wish we could have stayed all 10 days there! The view was beyond amazing, the facilities met our expectations, the staff (while admittedlyweren't AMAZING) were adequate to our needs, but as a hotel...wow...huge potential for an area inundated with excellent hotels already.

Room Tip: Ocean facing rooms is the ONLY way to go...

My wife and I spent a couple of nights here as part of our trip along the garden route and can honestly say we were delighted with what we found. We had booked direct with the hotel as it was not part of the Virgin Holidays offering, (this was a pain as we had to pay upfront over bankers transfer as opposed to credit card). As indicated in the title the "Views" along the coast from its cliff top location were fantastic (a novelty for us to have paragliders at eyelevel!) but the interior of the hotel is just as spectacular with lots of attention to detail with things like intelligent lighting in the spacious rooms. the furnishings were top notch and the interior designer had obviously earned their money as, for all the quality and additional touches, it still felt comfortable, (homely as my wife put it) and relaxing. The restaurant was good in terms of quality for both breakfast and dinner although would have liked more choice on the menu if we had been staying for longer, but again good value for little (considering 5 star) money. The Spa was quiet and were able to get treatment at a moments notice, it was well equipped and treatment efficient with costs on par for the area. If we were to do the Garden Route again we would definitely stay here again."

Room Tip: Spend the extra to get a Sea view, in our opinion it is well worth it.
