    We enjoyed our stay at Crawfords on Beacon Isle very much. The staff was extremely helpful. Our only regret was that our schedule prevented us from staying longer.

    • Average rating
  • Single

    The room was light and airy, a nice big bathroom (especially after experiencing the Protea Hotels in Mossel Bay and George!). The breakfast was ample and the hotel was quite flexible in eating times. The price was also very good value for money and I liked the fact that the breakfast was included.

    There was quite a lot of motorbike noise in the road outside the hotel quite late at night which can be a nuisance if you sleep lightly (which I do!!) The curtains of the room are also quite thin which lets in a lot of street lamp light at night.

    Very little

    The number of TV channels was very restricted and reception characterised by double images and snow. The bed sagged a little and foam rubber stuffed pillows are not famous for being comfortable. The piece de resistance was breakfast. Served on cold plates, my wife's scrambled egg was dry and cold and my fried egg extremely well done - to the point of being vulcanised. The maid on duty was willing and, while she probably speaks several languages, she had a problem with English and Afrikaans. We tried both. Sort out the TV, replace the beds and teach the staff the various ways of cooking eggs and the need for hot plates. Then you could have a nice little business

    The litchi juice at breakfast.

    It is completely overpriced.

    Crawfords has excellent sized and maintained rooms with all the facilities required. A very quiet location.

    Crawfords was a short drive to the town centre, this journey required the use of car (or a taxi), other than this a fantastic place to stay.

    The Owner & staff were very nice & friendly. Helpful as well. I liked how close it was to everything including the beach, garage and the town. Will definately be back for another visit.

    A suggestion: A heater in the room would have been nice.
