Pros: Everything was just perfect!!! Hosts are amazing. RECOMMENDED!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a 2-night-stay at the Wind Rose and liked it very much. We got a very nice and informative welcome from the landlord Peter. The rooms are fantastic, so much space and lovely decorated. The grounds are super well kept and as the Wind Rose is a bit outside of Gordons Bay and the beach it is very calm and peaceful in a gated countryside surrounding. We loved to sit outside the balcony of our rooms. The breakfast was very nice in a nice and cosy atmosphere. Very good coffee with french press coffeemakers. Carola and Peter gave us good tipps for restaurants and called taxis for us to get there. No problem and way more convenient for our "drivers" could enjoy the fantastic South African wines for dinner too. Due to the bad weather we had the pool was no option for us, too cold and windy. But it is beautiful I guess, when the weather is good and you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere there. We will always come back
Cons: The only problem we had was to get to find the Wind Rose, as google maps is routing a way that cannot be done. Best is to follow the precise instruction from Wind Rose to get there via the N2 from either direction

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in a family cottage. The views are amazing and we loved the peacefulness of the location. The Wedderwil estate is convenientely located just outside Somerset West. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the surroundings but be aware that they are all driving distances. We took a taxi to Waterkloof restaurant and used our rental the other times. The kitchen is well equiped the rooms are of good size and it's nice that all the rooms have there own bathrooms. We thought the breakfast could have been better, they put enough care but the assortment was a bit small. So more variety would be nice. We visited many wine estates in the region and drove to Stellenbosch twice. Stellenbosch, Cape Town, Hemel and Aarde Vallei and Hermanus are all within 30-45 minutes drive, so we loved the location.
Cons: Breakfast
9.6 Excellent

Best Rooms in Strand

Ocean Breeze Hotel - Strand - Bedroom

7.3 Good (452 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Ocean Breeze Hotel in Cape Town, you'll be near the beach and within a 5-minute drive of Harmony Park. Featured amenities include a business center, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
3.5 Mediocre
Pros: The view of the ocean was beautiful and the fact that the hotel provided Netflix were the two positives.
Cons: The water in the bathroom remained tepid throughout our stay. The handyman advised us to let the water from the hot water tap run for a while. Really? In Cape Town with its water crisis? Fix the damn problem. The kitchenette had no toaster, (I asked for a toaster on two separate occasions and was told it was being used in another room) the crockery was mismatched and the cutlery provided had a few teaspoons and knives but one fork and one tablespoon. The noisy refrigerator woke me up several times during the night. Paint touch-ups in the bedroom section were done in a different colour to the original and the shower door had a missing handle. Some sort of electrical cord that went though a half wall separating the kitchen from the lounge area was suspended from a hole in said wall - no attempt had been made to patch it up. When we left the hotel room on day 2 of our stay and returned 4 hours later, housekeeping had still not been. I was told that people were on leave. The cherry on top was when we checked out after 8 to have breakfast elsewhere close by and my husband realized he had forgotten his cellphone on the half wall in the hotel room. Needless to say, it was gone by the time we realized and returned to the hotel 90 minutes later. The phone which had been charged, was switched off. The laundry collector denied seeing it but she was the only other person to have entered the room after we left, according to management. This hotel is is in a prime location and can be such a gem, but it is sadly neglected and is in dire need of some strong management.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The view from the window
Cons: The bedding had hairs on little toilet paper curtains filthy and curtain rail broken at one end lock at door tattery no milk for coffee
4.2 Okay
Pros: The bed was okay the room looked run down curtains dirty, ketle broke, did not see a micro wave. The condiments may me feel like you real did not want me there, one Neste cafe coffee one of that other coffee. Not sure if it was even meant for us. The cove was not organised, we order breakfast only for them not to have eggs and someone had to go buy. We got there at 8h30 and only left after 10h00 witch kind made me feel rushed to get out cause we were ask how long it will take... Not even take your time nothing like that
Cons: Read above
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The Reservation Receptionist He was very friendly. He checked us in.
Cons: Absolutely Disappointing!!! How can You ask People to Pay R1000.00 Per Night and there is so many kick marks on the wall , Dirty Marks literally ALL OVER the doors and walls. There was a mark on the wall so big ,it literally took over the whole room!!! Noise from the neighbors. WALLS are paper thin! There was cups in the room. Not even the same size and its chipped with a brown colour ( discoloration) because it's old???? With one teaspoon. The floor was dirty, and dusty! People were smoking on our floor. You could smell it. Management needs to step up Your game! Ocean Breeze has the Best spot in Strand. But you have just completely let the Hotel Go under the ground. Wifi was sooo poor. The Receptionist respons to me was " eish" when I informed Her of the wifi being off. Sorry Guys, you completely failed us! Wont be back EVER!!!
