We had a superb stay as a family of four. The Arniston Spa Hotel is a South African institution, and everything we experienced was great. It’s ‘old school’ done really well. From room service to all the amenities being perfectly supplied. Great service from the staff even though it was extremely busy. GM and FB Manager of the Hotel were always present. That’s very rare. Excellent facilities for kids and loads of activities. Kids club very well organised. Fresh wild oysters and great wine list was lovely. Good breakfast and had a good experience all round. Looking forward to going back.

We had a superb time. We visited Arniston for the first time as a family and the hotel stay was great. From the friendly staff, through to the spoiled-for-choice breakfast and the delicious menu at the hotel restaurant. The food was really great! Thank you. We will be back!

A wonderful hotel which gets all the small details right as well as the usual things one expects. It was a fortunate choice for the celebration of my husband 's birthday. The bottle of "bubbly" made super special. Thanks to all the staff for their friendly attitude and ready smiles.

We had a lovely stay at the Arniston Hotel for two nights as part of our honeymoon. It was a fantastic experience - friendly, efficient staff. Our room was lovely with an uninterrupted view of the ocean. We also made use of the hotel bicycles to explore the village - highly recommended! Breakfast was also a highlight!

Brilliant location!!
Clean, neat, well maintained facilities.
Balocony for ocean views and cosy fireplace on cold nights in room.
The staff is extremely friendly (even with a sense of humour) well-trained, fast and efficient!
Great variety of dishes available on menu and an excellent selection of exquisite wines available to accompany scrumptious meals.

Staff were really friendly, helpful and well trained. Rooms were large and comfortable and included everything one might need. The best was the jug of fresh milk for tea and coffee. Had a lovely Easter weekend stay. Highly recommended getaway. 💕

Stunning hotel right on the beach in a quaint little village, highly recommend the seafood platter, excellent service and ambiance and will certainly revisit the Arniston Spa Hotel again.

Beacon of accommodation – Arniston hotel is without a doubt a hidden gem. Not only for the service and views from the room but for the extra effort they put into your stay being memorable. The hotel serves as a great base to walk to the beacon and caves and up to the Arniston memorial.

Already planning our next trip! Super-friendly service, beautiful location, good food... Can't wait to come back! The beach is just a stone's throw from the hotel and has small waves that are perfect for kids. The staff are amazing and go out of their way to accommodate requests.

Our favourite weekend getaway. This was our 2nd weekend in Arniston hotel this year, it is just such a comfortable and relaxing weekend getaway. The hotel is centrally situated to explore southern Cape coastline, and it's wonderful to pull into Arniston hotel after a busy day outdoors in the sun and have a good meal in the restaurant and a restful sleep in a comfortable bed in spacious rooms with views of the ocean. The breakfast buffet deserves a special mention, absolutely delicious! The spa and pool facilities add value to the overall experience. The staff is friendly and professional and the whole place has such a welcoming, easygoing atmosphere, keep it up!

Great stay, absolutely peaceful. Poolside view very relaxing. Breakfast amazing. Staff very pleasant and helpful.Very safe environment. I would definitely recommend this hotel if peace and tranquility is what you need. With the sea just a few steps away, who could ask for more?

Just what the doctor ordered – I have discovered heaven on earth. Everything was pure bliss. From the Reception up to when we left.
I can't wait to return - this time in summer so that we can make use of the pool and the beaches. The food is to die for. The view from the rooms and the bar / restaurant is breathtaking. The services in the Spa is excellent. What more can one ask when you are suffering from Covid-19 fatigue than a few days away at the Arniston Hotel and Spa. Value for money!!!

On the beach heaven – Arniston is a must visit bucket list kind of small peaceful town and the Hotel is situated in the best possible spot. Right on the ocean with a view of the small harbor. The food was incredible and the service matched that!

Great value Winter Special! We had a wonderful stay at the Arniston Hotel - very impressed by the product and all the small extra's and conveniences such as a fridge in the room, cotton gowns, decent tea and coffee station, spacious room with lounge area and balcony, large bathroom and good guest amenities. Bicycles available for use, as well as boogie boards, plus beach towels. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. Great breakfast spread and good standard casual dining in the two restaurants for lunch/dinner. Very impressed with the Spa and the quality of the massages received. Excellent value for money all round - highly recommended!
