Fodor's Review

Centered on a restored farmstead built in the 1860s, this hotel has thick white walls, tile floors, and timber beams. Rustic pine furniture and bright floral fabrics decorate the rooms, some of which have fireplaces and views of the lagoon. The hotel's restaurant is open to the public, and its à la carte menu focuses on farm-style favorites with a modern twist. Local Saldanha Bay mussels, crayfish from Paternoster, oxtail soup, and lamb shanks are favorites. Breakfast is said to be the best in town—with homemade bread, warm pastries, cheeses, bacon, eggs, cereals, and a view to die for. The traditional Sunday roast, featuring an array of roast meats, seasonal vegetables, and roast potatoes, is a highlight.
