Pros: Kathy is just the most amazing host! So helpful and accomodating. We were in Umkomaas for diving and it was never a problem serving breakfast (which was lovely) early when we had to be early at the dive site.

The house feels very safe, the rooms are beautifully kept and the dog Spencer is just a darling:)

Pros: Bed comfy
Cons: TV channels were intermittent and freezing. Signal very poor
Pros: The staff are fantastic, very helpful and friendly.
Cons: There was a matric dance on so the matrics were very noisy that evening. I got back to the hotel around 18:30 pm and struggled to get through the foyer due to the amount of people wanting to see the matrics arrive at the venue. I was also met with disgruntled parents trying to take pictures of their children as I was trying to get past everyone in the foyer to get to my room. People need to realize there are paying guests staying at the hotel. This dampened my experience a little.
Pros: Beautiful sea view, the staff were very accommodating
Pros: The overall experience was top notch, from the hotel location to the helpful and friendly staff, to the cleanliness and comfort of the room and whole hotel. Amazing, amazing experience.
Cons: Honestly, the lift being just.outside our room could be a bit noisy but I loved our room. Wouldn't have changed it.
Pros: Staff was great. Food was good. Bar area is great. Access to the beach is good. The room was comfortable.
Cons: Hotel was noisy with a wedding and birthday function going on at the same time. The toilets were a mess! Bins overflowing and sanitary pads exposed. The most awful sewer smell was coming from the back of the hotel and the toilets. We left a towel on the floor, as we are asked to do if we want it changed, and it was just hung back up on the rack.
Pros: Everything! Will return.
Pros: The friendly staff and the comfort around the outside bar.
Cons: The building need upgrading.
Pros: the hotel is very neat and tidy. the room was superb with a great view. short walk to scottburgh main beach breakfast selection great, and restaurant dinners top class

With a stay at Ocean Park Guest House in Umkomaas, you'll be within a 15-minute walk of Umkomaas Golf Club and Umkomaas Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The staff was very welcoming and friendly
Cons: The place was chid friendly as kids were playing mini golf in the property.
Pros: The place is clean and peaceful.
Cons: The reception was horrendous! I felt unwelcomed.
Pros: The rooms were clean and the fridge well stocked. Fresh linen and well equipped bathroom.
Cons: The owner was polite but not friendly. He could use some soft skills training on customer relations.
Pros: There are air conditioners in the rooms, with friendly staff who cleaned the rooms daily. There was ample and secure parking and all the amenities that are stated in the booking, are present.
Cons: A bit more is expected from a four star guesthouse. For example, at the first morning's breakfast, there was no filter coffee because "the previous morning no-one wanted filter coffee". We were woken at 06:00 one morning to program the gate remotes; and another morning a staff member walked into our bathroom while it was being used.
Pros: The host was very accommodative,
Pros: Excellent location for over night stay. Rooms were very clean. The staff was helpful and very willing to assist in requests made.
Cons: Breakfast was good but could do with some more initiative.
Pros: Friendliness and everything was great
Pros: The food
Cons: They was no view
Pros: The breakfast was nice. Guido and Charmaine were very friendly.
Cons: Breakfast cut off time is 9am - which isn't too good considering that you're on vacation. Instead of laying in a little longer, one has to worry about rushing out to make it for breakfast. The other option would be to starve, because all the shops and eateries are several kilometres away in either direction. I felt the rooms too small for my husband and I. It would've suited an individual. Hated the cinnamon incense sticks - it gave me a headache. The area surrounding Ocean Park was atrocious in appearance. Yards, verges, and grounds were not maintained. Overgrown grass and bush together with dilapidated houses gave it an almost haunted or ghost town feel. At the venue itself, I'm almost certain that the cleaning staff used the same towels and did not replace all of them with clean ones.

Pros: Was a lovely stay. Very kind hosts, beautiful view and comfortable rooms. Will definitely visit them again.
Pros: Close to wedding venue.
Pros: Mick was a lovely host and we loved the braai area!! Scenery was also beautiful.
Cons: Probably would have preferred to be closer to the beach, though at least we had great views.
Pros: Mick & Tina were so welcoming & nothing was too much for them to do. Any request was seen to immediately & Mick always went the extra mile. The view from our bedroom was just too beautiful & the size of the room & bathroom was fabulous. Mick advised us on where to go & all restaurants & the beaches that we enjoyed, were all in close proximity. We definately enjoyed the breakfasts, which were always made with"love" & the absolute feeling of comfort & hospitality was apparent. The braai area was great & suited our needs in every way. The B & B is a little jewel in the Umkomaas district- we loved our stay.
Cons: The patio that was joining our room could have had some extra furniture, so that we could lounge outside with a book, a drink & the gorgeous view. The swimming pool was not really geared to spending time there, as there was no comfortable seating or lounging facilities,which was rather a shame.
Pros: LOVED THE BATH. THE DOG CODY WAS EXTRA SPECIAL.
Cons: There was nothing we did nother like. Perhaps supper would have beeno wonderful
Pros: i love everything but put more rooms on top we too much love sea view .

Located in Scottburgh, Premier Resort Cutty Sark is by the ocean, within a 5-minute drive of Scottburgh Beach and Scottburgh Golf Club. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Good location and direct beach access. Food and drink was reasonable and priced well.
Cons: Seems no maintenance are done at all. My room’s carpet was damp.
Cons: Reception,not being able to see my deposit on my arrival
Cons: The location is fine but the room needs attention. For example the walls of the room can be painted, the bathroom is ugly and the shower curtain has a smell, it sets no feeling of holiday. The curtains needs to be dry cleaned. The coffee mugs is old, and has marks all over the cup inside and out. They need new cups. We had no privacy in our room as all the staff members and workers that past my rooms window wanted to chat, I could not even rest in peace or open my window when it was hot as they stopped and looked in the whole time. The room can also do with a fridge, and the T.V can be upgraded with a remote. The hotel can also do with a vending machine.
Pros: Staff were very friendly and the beach is close by.
Pros: Cutty Sark has a faded air. Rooms clean and comfortable but need refurbishment. Staff pleasant and friendly. The view from the room was great.
Cons: The big problem is the catering. The kitchen is disorganised and the food poor. The breakfast is expensive and inadequate. We were verbally given a list of cereals available which we asked for with yoghurt. The cereal came in a miniscule bowl filled to the top, accompanied by another similar bowl filled with yoghurt. It was impossible to mix the two without making a mess. As for the cooked breakfast, the scrambled egg was horrible, watery and tasteless. Quite the worst I have had for a very long time. We elected not to have breakfast on the next day, and found a cafe which did a good cooked breakfast for one-third of the price. We did not eat evening meals there.
Pros: The sea view.
Cons: The door handle to the room was sea damaged and difficult to close. The room fan was broken. The sockets were rusted.
Pros: Lovely seaside view from the bedrooms. Great access to the beach! Nice spacious bedrooms and very helpful friendly staff.
Cons: The breakfast and dinner buffets were way too expensive so we had to eat elsewhere.
Pros: Hotel location is perfect, walking distance to the beach
Cons: The entire hotel building needs to be improved / modernised
Pros: Great location
Cons: Rooms are old and dirty. Bar had limited options. TV remotes didnt work. Exposed electrical wires. Roof Leakes out of the lights. Clearly has no ongoing maintenance; there was mould on the bathroom walls. Really not in good shape
Pros: Great Location, close to the beach. great facilities
