Thank you for another great relaxing holiday at Seagulls Hotel - just wish we could have stayed longer. Delicious food (especially the fresh fish and chips) and good service as usual and perfect weather. Cant wait for our next visit.

I only went through for one day for lunch with my friends and family but between the five of us we could all agree. These were the best chips in all of South Africa (better than Steers). I had macaroni and cheese and for R35 I definitely got my money's worth. Their burger paties were also top notch and their...

We had an awesome, fun filled and relaxing 7 day family holiday at Seagulls. The hotel is perfectly situated right on the beach with breathtaking seaviews. Rob and the kitchen staff served the most delicious, heartwarming meals, this was definitely our highlight!

This is an old school beach hotel right on the beach with about a 10m walk onto the sand. The hotel is old but with very comfortable rooms most overlooking the sea. There is no air-conditioning and no TV but the sound of crashing waves was enough and watched a couple of cricket matches in the pub. The staff were...

We are a group of 32 people doing a 3 day 110km Transkei run and I've only heard positive things. Great management who really went out of their way to assist us. Food was excellent and the setting is superb!! Stunning 180 degree sea views and you can't help but relax once you're here. The accommodation is simpler beach cottage...

Quiet hotel and good for the family. Good access to the beach with hole cooking. New management is trying to make improvements but don't expect quick lunches, these take time but are tasty when they arrive. Watch out when the weather is poor the local campsite invades the hotel so your peace is shattered by the increase in patron numbers.

We booked this hotel for a week in December and left as quickly as we could. This is definitely not a hotel - more like a dive or fishermans resort. The rooms are very basic - the little furniture there is, is mismatched, the sheets are old, its really just more a back room with a bed. The bathrooms seem...

We cycled from Kei Mouth to Seagulls hoping for some lunch, we arrived at 11h30 and were told that the kitchen only opened for lunch at 12h00 and we could not order anything to eat until then, we decided to wait and enjoy the beautifully situated pub, you cannot get closer to the sea.

Came here many times as a child on family holidays and had a great family reunion a couple of years ago. You cannot get closer to the beach. We only came for drinks this time as stayiny with family. Unfortunately it's looking a bit run down. Your first impression as you drive in, is that of untidiness. Leaking or burst...
