“A wonderful wedding weekend!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

What started out as a simple invitation to a family wedding turned out to become a wonderful weekend experience. Kob Inn provided the ideal setting for the wedding but with unexpected yet extremely pleasant surprises throughout every day. We awoke to the most beautiful sunrises, enjoying scrumptious meals three times a day, magnificent views and many different activities to choose from. The staff members were friendly and helpful and most welcoming. All round a most worthwhile experience. Thank you to Daan, Violet and staff at Kob Inn!

Weddings are a time for family and friends coming together to celebrate. Add to that mix the fact that all the wedding guests stay at the venue, beautiful sea views and helpful staff and you have just booked your perfect wedding venue. Kob Inn has been our destination of choice for holidays ranging from active long weekends, relaxing beach holidays and family Christmases. We have now added weddings to that list. What an amazing piece of South Africa!

From the first second we experienced luxury treatment! Our 2 week holiday stay truly turned into our home, with the exception of gourmet meals, beautiful beaches and amazing family fun in the sun which greeted us every day!!! Service with heart we never experienced elsewhere and we were all sad to leave, but with a definite return in 2015! Morgan Family

We have just returned from a holiday to this amazing resort, as we drove through the gates and parked, we had somebody ready to collect our luggage and take it to our room for us, we were met in reception by a friendly receptionist who gave us a welcome drink and made us feel very welcome. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Lilian in dining room served us most meals and she always had a smile and a joke for us, but all the other staff were great and attentive as well. The bar ladies are the best we have yet to come across. The food great and needless to say have a few kilos to lose. We were given room number 5 which is great as far as sea views are concerned, the only draw back is that it can be a bit noisy as it is directly above the swimming pool. The road from Willowvale is a bit daunting but when we left, the roads department were busy grading and working on it. We did the trip in a car with low profile tyres and although slow going, made it without any trouble at all. I have read some other reviews and find it difficult to believe that anybody in their right mind would give kob inn a bad one, it is, after all, a wild coast resort.
Daan and Violet (the owners) have done an amazing job of training the staff and keeping the place well maintained under difficult circumstances. We will certainly be back. Tom and Lesley

Room Tip: If you need a quite time ask for room which is not near the pool are.

This is an excellent hotel in a wonderful setting. A beautiful lagoon beach and miles of footpaths on beaches as well as inland. The hotel itself is very nice and the bar area are right at the edge of the sea - really nice. The staff were also very professional and friendly.

Room Tip: Go for sea facing ! Beautiful sunrises.

The Kob Inn provides good old fashioned hospitality in the familiar style of the Wild Coast and Eastern Cape. Good food, good laughs and a breath-taking view! Very friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and looked after. The rooms are clean with very comfortable beds. A rustic gem in one of the most beautiful areas of the Eastern Cape. Well worth many visits!

The road is not up to city standards naturally, but no problem for our little rented car at all, you have to watch it for the pot holes of course, but at no time was there any prospect of getting stuck, if fact the entire trip was an adventure, in particular the ferry crossing.
The rooms were rather tired and need a complete refit, but quite acceptable food altogether, can recommend the seafood platter.
