"Good brief stay at Harbour House Hotel"
Our room was pleasant and spacious. We did not use the kitchenette, which perhaps seemed a touch incongruous, but it could have been useful if we had stayed for longer. Breakfast was good, although again the staff were slightly variable in their friendliness.
Perhaps the main plus for Harbour House is its location, which is superb for whale watching (we were just too late in the season to take advantage of this). The small gardens with loungers and pools also looked enticing, had we not been heading off early." See all these reviews: 11n in South Africa
