Having read all the wonderful reviews on this site and carefully looking at Kanonkop's website we decided to treat ourselves to the Paradise Suite.
We arrived late at night, around 10.30pm to be greeted with a frosty welcome. The comment being “We were not sure if you would be turning up” despite an e-mail acknowledging that we would be arriving around that time.
When we were shown the Paradise Suite, my partner didn't know whether to laugh or cry!
The “suite” comprises only the one room! Everything, bed, bath, shower and toilet are part of the same room with only a small sliding partition to separate the room slightly. This means every noise and smell would permeate the whole room. There is also a convenient mirror opposite the toilet that allows you to watch whoever is on the toilet from the comfort of your bed. Why anyone would think this is acceptable is well beyond us both.
The room is relatively small with no sitting area, so how it can be called a suite is a mystery.
Our bed was damp and the louvres on the wardrobe doors were thick with dust.
Kanonkop is listed in Trip Advisor as a Hotel. In my opinion it's a B&B/Guest House and not a very good one at that.
We were supposed to stay for 4 nights, but left first thing the next morning.
Of our 16 nights on South Africa, this was by far the worst accommodation we stayed in.
