We had a fabulous six days at Kob Inn. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful sea view from our room and loved the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks at night. I hope we will be able to pay them another visit soon.

We had a wonderful family holiday. Our hosts, Violet and Daan, were friendly, gracious and very helpful. The staff were great, as was the service. There was plenty of good food to eat and the bar was very affordable. Beautiful surroundings and lots to do close to the resort.

Perfect for families as kids are well looked after with plenty of things to do, both...

Excellent location, Staff and Management very helpful, food is good, make sure to ask for a sea view room especially one of the recently renovated rooms. There is plenty to offer if you're adventurous if not its a cool place to just chill.

We had a room right on the rocks with the most stunning views! Lovely walks on deserted beaches (apart from cattle!). Its safe and pristine. The horse riding was a highlight with well cared and behaved horses, congratulations to all involved.
