An enjoyable, relaxing stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms with the sea views are very nice, well-equipped and airy though the bathrooms are a bit tired. My light switch was cracked and the shower could have done with a better clean. I stayed in a room with an inter leading door which can be problematic as one can hear people in the room next door.
The WiFi was a bit problematic and one only gets a voucher for 24 hours then you have to ask for another one at reception. It would be better to simply have a code for the entire stay. We went to the spa which was very nice.
The bistro service is a bit iffy- some friendly staff, others clueless or unfriendly. But has a varied menu and a lovely verandah to sit and relax. The Pebbles shop has good stock.
I would visit again and really enjoyed the stay. The hotel feels like an old shoe- familiar and friendly faces and a welcoming atmosphere. Thanks to Hein, Kathleen and others at the front desk who were friendly and helpful. The staff are also accommodating and are happy to be flexible re meals or other issues.

Visited the hotel with my husband celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Breakfast was a buffet and nothing short of what was served at major hotel groups. Food was great and room service excellent. Will definitely go back.

Room tip: the rooms in the front of the hotel gives a full seaview

We decided to break our trip home from Plettenberg Bay to Cape Town by overnighting at the Arniston Spa Hotel. Even in the middle of winter, the hotel was an absolute treat. Underfloor heating in our room, with a fireplace for night time pleasure. The sea-facing room allowed us to enjoy uninterrupted views of the ocean, and the little balcony was a delight. Most impressive of all was the staff's friendliness and willingness to be of service. We'll be back.

The winter special is great value, which is very difficult to beat. Fabulous location on the beachfront, spacious rooms and great attention to detail. Very friendly staff and the breakfast is amazing!
