Stayed here for 11 nights with my husband - the hotel is completely refurbished to a high standard, rooms are good with full working kitchen, more than enough utensils for anyone wishing to do self catering. The staff are lovely and helpful. We had an issue with the room whilst there - no-one’s fault - but the staff and manger in particular dealt with the issue quickly. Location is at the top of the Gap opposite the Crave restaurant. The on,y thing worth noting is that there is no direct access to the beach but the view over the sea for the sun loungers more than makes up for this. Would definitely recommend Read less

Reminds me of South Beach Miami type hotels, nice pool overlooking the water, note no beach access. Some elements of the hotel feel like a 3 star type hotel, but a very good one, at a very good price. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend if staying in the gap.

It was certainly great to experience the first class service and spectacular room accommodation at this hotel after all the favorable reviews. The staff are warm, friendly and very approachable. The recent renovations giving you true value for your money spent offering modern decor and furnishings making it hard to leave the room. They may have to rename South Gap to South Ocean as the hotel is directly on the beach front and the views of the ocean from the rooms are simply breathtaking!!!!! It was so amazing watching the sun set from the balcony each evening. Read less
