Reviews

“After several visits to the hotel in Arniston, there is nothing to beat the atmosphere, proximity to the sea and character of the village. The hotel is excellent value for money and serves an excellent breakfast. Room quality is superb and the menu selection is very good. The staff is amongst the most friendly and helpful that I have ever experienced.” TripAdvisor Review
“Clean and tidy family hotel. For mature travelling couples I would say this is a good two night stop hotel to visit the beautiful coastline nearby. Great walks around the local sand dunes and nice deserted sandy beaches.” TripAdvisor Review
“Will visit again! The quality of everything was superb. Attention to detail is definitely there! It was my birthday and they really treated me like I was the Queen! The best breakfast I have ever had at a local hotel and the friendliest staff. The wellness spa inside the hotel added to the whole experience.” TripAdvisor Review
“This was our third stay at Arniston Spa Hotel and we were not disappointed, staff friendly, the room was clean with nice sea view, food in the bistro was good and breakfast was good, no complaints, we will be back next year.” TripAdvisor Review
“Really amazing! Great hotel with people going the extra mile. The food was very good, especially the sushi. Good rooms and lots of extras to make the holiday special. Well worth it and great swimming, not too many people.” Google Review
