We only stayed for 1 night after a day at Eagle Encounters, before moving onto Hermanus to go whale watching the next day. Both activities are an easy drive. Although we didn't stay here long, we had a wonderful stay and would happily return. It is well situated within easy walk of town and the balcony room we stayed in...
