“Short and sweet - good enough for an overnight stop and that's it”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Just back from a wedding in Ballito and we stayed at this 3 star hotel for the night. Located on the outskirts, or I should say in the industrial area, of this holiday destination this is affordable bed and shower - not more, not less. The air-cons have the noise level of a starting airplane, the beds are o.k. - and that's it. Good pricing for a short overnight stop, not for a multit-night stay.

Ballito is famous for the 5FM New Year's Party and Hampshire Hotel in Ballito offers you the retreat you deserve to spoil your sight of the Dolphin coast and still retreat to the Hotel tranquility after a busy day. The hotel is situated off the N2 at the three prominent malls of Ballito Bay, Ballito Junction and the Lifestyle where the Hampshire hotel is situated close to all amenities in Ballito.

Room Tip: All rooms are offering deserved comfort

We booked at short notice and the staff were helpful and friendly
Nice rooms good size but very noisy wall mounted A/C units
The breakfast was ok but not first class but for the money it's and OK hotel
Overlooks the freeway so not a very scenic position

Room Tip: They are all much the same

I have spent over 35 days at Hampshire throughout this year on business trips and every time I have been there it has been amazing. The rooms are always clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast has always been tasty. This December I took my entire family (8 people ) for a week and I was not disappointed. The rooms were springcleaned when we checked in, new duvet covers on the beds and the pool was crystal blue with complimentary pool toys for our kids and the staff were their usual bubbly selves.

It is not a 5 star hotel but we feel that you really do get a lot of value for money at this hotel. The manager and her assistant (Kathrin and Molly) are always around and their number is at the reception if we had any issues. A good place with a good attitude.

Room Tip: Ask Kathrin for all the secret swimming spots.

Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

I would like to advise anyone who would like to book here, to look for alternate accomodation . The hosptitality is shocking, and so is the breakfast . The abundance of fruit flies, showers handles breaking off, and overall untidy appearance is not worth 3 stars. The receptionist and the chef are absolutely shocking.

Will never stay here again.
