We stayed at The Robertsons Bed and Breakfast at the end of November 2015. We booked last minute and arrived very late on the Friday evening. Despite our poor manners the hosts were exceptional: welcoming, jolly, full of local advice and very generous offering us freshly made baked goods (which were delicious). We would recommend this bed and breakfast without...

We really enjoyed staying at the Robertsons B&B. Sue was so welcoming and obliging, so was the housekeeper Adinah- she was so patient with our kids. We really felt at home here & it was perfectly suited for our purpose there. The view of the beach was calming and beautiful. Pics shown are as is at the establishment 😊 Nice...

The Robertsons have opened up their home to allow guests to stay with them. We had the upstairs room which had a small balcony with a sea view. The breakfasts were great and the Robertsons are very friendly. There are 3 or 4 restaurants within a short drive and a swimmable beach with shark nets about 10 minutes away. Mrs....

We booked in during December, and had a great experience here. Room 3 was allocated to us. It was extremely comfortable, with everything we needed. The bathroom was very large, with a bath, shower and double basin. Linen and towels were provided, and were clean and fresh. Breakfast was included, and was served by such a friendly staff member -...

I am not normally a fan of B&B's since I do not like sharing my living space. This one has turned my opinion on that. It is very clean and neat. The owners make every effort to ensure a comfortable stay and the food that they serve is excellent. I will be back for more.

We enjoyed two night here along our journey from Joburg to Cape Town. We had intended to go shark cage diving, but the weather prevented that. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Robertsons, and the chance to have a relaxing break from traveling. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the shower was perfectly hot with great pressure!...

This is a lovely little gem on the South Coast. We stayed there in anticipation of some diving the next day, but unfortuneatly the weaather didn't play along. It didn't detract from the wonderful stay we had. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, recommending restaurants and things to do. They are avid divers as well, so they understand the...

The room at Robertsons turned out to be the nicest (and cheapest) room we got to stay in on our 2 week trip around SA and Mozambique. We came to Umkomaas for scuba diving. Sue arranged the diving for us and cooked us 2 nice breakfasts (before and after the dive). Small watchout for the dive center Umkomaas Lodge Dive...

We had an awesome time at the Robertsons (pun intended). The room we stayed in was clean, well equipped and had everything you could want. We came here on a diving trip and it's obvious that Sue often caters for divers. We got a light breakfast at 6AM and a full breakfast after our dive. There are proper hangers outside...
