Since October 2018, Ocean View Hotel has been under some major refurbishment so that they can continue to give their clients the best accommodation experience along the Wild Coast.

The hotel undergoes constant renovations in order to keep up to date with modern luxuries and ensure that they provide comfort and convenience at all times.

Some of the more major upgrades that have taken place are the installation of a state-of-the-art generator. As load shedding is a problem all businesses have to face, the installation of this new generator will ensure that the hotel has an uninterrupted supply of power no matter what.

Recently they have also added three new rooms to the hotel which are situated right by the beach. There are also new bathrooms in four of the rooms, a Jungle Gym and play area for the kids, a coffee bar with a shiny new espresso machine, and a new look for the lounge and dining room area.

Some more changes will continue to take place throughout the year so be sure to keep an eye out for something new on your next visit.

At Ocean View Hotel, you can get up close and personal as you witness the Sardine Run that takes place every year between June and July from the comfort of this luxury accommodation.

The Sardine Run is an annual visual spectacular that involves sardines from hundreds of large swirling shoals ‘run’ from the cool waters of the North East and head towards the warmer waters of the Indian Ocean.

Billions of sardines spawn and begin to migrate, which, as you can imagine, attracts a massive amount of oceanic predators. The Sardine Run is a great feast for Sharks, Dolphins, Cape Gannets, Cormorants, Seals and Whales in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

During this spectacular event, Ocean View Hotel offers boat charters for this event and many others like it. Simply give them a call to inquire about their accommodation and boast charters to witness this magical event up close and personal.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
