Stayed at the Oubaai for eight nights and were really impressed with the service. Everything we needed and ask for was taken care of by the very helpful staff! The food was good, however the selection very limited and there was only one Restaurant open at the property. So you needed to eat Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner at the same...

En route from Shamwari Game lodge to Franschoek. What a disappointment the hotel was actually closed. We arrived in time for executive lounge drinks and nibbles and the counter was bare. We toddled off to find a bar, only to discover they were all closed and there were no staff in sight. All the boutiques and shops were closed down...

This establishment is beautiful, but what a pity it isn't run well. The rooms are beautiful, but in desperate need of TLC. The arm rests of the upholstered furniture need to be replaced, it is dirty. We paid extra to have a sea view, but I wasn't told that the ocean is far away and it wasn't worth the extra...

Overnight stay. Staff very professional and friendly. Hotelroom very cold and aircons in both rooms werent working. No phones in room. No extra blankets. Rooms are beautiful but just lacking some warmth and personality. Food in the restaurant good. staff friendly and helpful. Also quite impersonal. The setting for this hotel cannot be beaten. it is stunning. Breakfast good.
