Our favourite rooms
We’re partial to the spacious Superior room, upstairs in the main house, which has its own patio overlooking the pool. For a more intimate experience, book one of the Luxury Superior rooms in the separate building set back from the main house.
Located at the heart of the inn, the unheated outdoor pool is open from 10am to 6pm, May through October. Loungers, tables and chairs dot the pool deck, where breakfast can be served during the warmer months.
Leave your beach gear at home – the inn has towels, beach chairs and umbrellas you can borrow, so all you need is your swimsuit.
There’s a private path leading from the inn to a neighbouring yoga and Pilates studio, where guests can take classes. The inn offers free parking permits for a local beach.
More of an adults-only retreat, but over-16s are welcome. Guests must be 21 or over to check-in.
Not only is breakfast made with locally sourced ingredients and the hotel powered with renewable energy sources, but the also inn participates in the Clean the World initiative, which donates unused bath products to health care programmes in developing countries. Many of the products throughout the hotel are eco-friendly, and the inn is a member of the Cape & Islands Green programme.
