An absolute gem”

This place was amazing, spotlessly clean, great finishes, beautiful sea views, it truly is a five star hotel with comfortable beds. i stayed during the low peak time,it was value for money, we got to use the spa facilities - steam room and detox pool complementary to the room and the staff were very professional and friendly. i loved everything about this place. just a pity we stayed for one night, will definitely be back.

the rooms were lovely, the staff were very helpful, and honest

This was an amazing stay. My sister forgot her jacket at the pool and when she called them, they confirmed that they have the jacket safe. When the jacket was collected all her credit cards were safely in the pocket. This level of honesty is rare n the hotel industry. So The View Hotel and Spa in No 1 in my family.

Very friendly staff and beautiful room”

spacious room and private verandah

We arrived in the evening and it was already dark. We got lost as the street names were not clearly marked. We phoned the hotel and a very friendly guy on duty gave us directions. As we arrived we were greeted friendly and were given a tour around. In our room two glasses of sherry were awaiting us. After an excellent dinner in the beautiful decorated dining-room we went back to our room for a glass of champagne on our romantic private veranda. We found that the lights in the bedroom were dimmed and the beds were opened up for us. Then we relaxed in our jacuzzi. A night to remember.

Beautiful for a holiday stay, only ok for business”

Good Room Size, Great Staff, Good Food

The staff at this hotel are super, I had a weekend free in the middle of the school holidays and they were still able to organize a trip for me to see some of the country on 1 days notice ... thank you to the staff. The food in the restaurant is great and staff also very friendly. My only complaint would be for business I need a internet connection... whilst there is one in the room, you have better odds at a casino with regards to whether it will work. The fact that it costs USD30 for 5 days connection and does not work most of those days is a very big disappointment.

Satisfactory”

View, decor and location

Good. But at 6:30 am we had 4 loud children from next door shouting and jumping around and trying to open the inter leading door. Why parents cannot control their children!!! For a 5 star it lacked the extra element. Breakfast was cold and overcooked. No teaspoon in room for coffee. No towel racks to put wet towels. Globe outside room was not working. No availability at spa when trying to reserve. They took outside reservations and therefore nothing available for hotel guests. Lovely feel, location and decor. Xx

Views, room, bathroom

Magnificent views, beautifully furnished rooms with lovely bathroom. Bathroom includes large jacuzzi bath. For a five star establishment I did not like not being allowed to leave the hotel before my room and minibar was checked, even though a credit card authorisation was taken on check in. But I guess this is South Africa!

The quietness, the Bar and Resturant staff, the view

From the time we were collected from the airport, our stay at the Hotel was excellent from the moment we checked in until the time we had to leave. All the staff where excellent especially the Bar and Resturant staff. We cannot find any faults with the Hotel, but one thing to remember when staying at this Hotel you must have a car, otherwise you have to relay on taxies which if not booked in advance can be a problem.

Hotel was lovely however our room had damp in which was obvious. The service is 5 star but the hotel itself is far from it. The food was brilliant and can not fault this. I would definitely go again if to stay in a different room. I lived in Toti years ago so know the area, this hotel certainly helps to improve Amanzimtoti’s tourism and would recommend staying there to averyone.

Disappointed”

The staff and facilities otherwise was magnificent. Food served is first class. The staff really do there best effort to please the guest.

1) The shower door could not close properly, water from the shower flooded the bathroom. We had to use the towels to mop up the bathroom floor. 2) The mattress was to small for the bed base. You have to navigate your way over the railings getting on and off. 3) The bed! So cranky. You can not move without it creaking and cracking. Not good for a romantic evening. We ended up moving all the furniture aside and dropping the mattress on the floor. 4) The bathtub dos not hold water. You have to continually top it up. 5) There is no dead bolt on the sliding door. We were soaking in the tub while a staff member enters the room. “Surprise visit”, to deliver two complementary cupcakes. Hello CUPCAKE!!!

Good relaxing break. Value for money. Maybe 5-star B&B , not 5-star boutique hotel as it is marketed though ! Has too many stairs for the average person to negotiate. No porters at reception ( although they did offer to fetch my bag )

Overall a good stay”

Good standard accommodation, relaxing spa & pool area, breakfast (not the service!)

Overall a good stay in a comfortable, clean hotel. The restaurant employs "trainees" to serve and we had a few 'mishaps' with wrong orders, spilt flower vase over the table, coffee spilt on the saucer and no offer to change. Wine serve red in the wrong glasses. The problem is the staff are left to serve without experience and not supervised. The will never learn like this. They need supervision and guidance. Not the service I would expect from a five star hotel! The food was good but spoilt by the service. The reception staff argued with us over a hotel taxi shuttle service charge. We were told it was free and subsequently charged. Good will by them was not forthcoming!
