We did not stay at this lovely hotel but went there to look around as day visitors and then went back the same evening for dinner at "Fish Eagle Restaurant". The architecture is beautiful - Cape Dutch style - apparently built as a private home in 1941 (a 10 bedroom beach cottage) and later converted into a Hotel - a really grand looking hotel. We spoilt ourselves to a very tasty meal of Lamb Shank served with mash and vegetables. My husband had a side salad instead of the mash, the meal was delicious. My photos of the meal did not do it justice as the night time pictures never come out right. The staff were great and we tipped the 2 chefs involved in the cooking - they came out to thank us personally. The young manageress was delightful and very thoughtful - nothing was too much trouble for her. We had a long chat to her (they were not very busy on that evening). During the day, the view from the restaurant is lovely - one can see the estuary and the sea in the distance. At night, the lights from the chandeliers reflected in the large glass windows. Overall the place and the food was very impressive. We will go there again!
