10/10 Exceptional

Nontokozo, 4-night romance trip
Verified guest review

8/10 Very good

Beautiful location and lovely spaces.
The Tides Inn is really a lovely guesthouse. My room was comfortably furnished and the bathroom was spacious and nicely appointed. Everything was immaculately clean. My room had a lovely view of the sea, both form the bed and the outside deck. The location is wonderful. The breakfast was generous and freshly prepared. There was a problem with getting in when I arrived and there was no one to meet me and let me in. It took me nearly an hour to make contact by phone and be received.This was was not handled at all well, which was a pity, given all the many positives. I think it may have been a blip and I will stay there again.
