We loved our stay at Funky Town. Friendly service, clean & really nicely decorated room. Pleasantly surprised. Definitely a value-for-money establishment and if we ever stay in J-Bay again, we will be sure to stay here!

Great welcome on arrival, parking on site, secure rooms, good knowledge/recommendations of nearby amenities. A great place to base yourself for a couple of days, or (as we were) travelling through before flying out of PE.

Cracking place to stay in the heart of Jeffrey's Bay. Very modern, incredibly clean and comfortable rooms. Loads of nice little touches, including use of a jacuzzi and outdoor pool, a little 'passport' that included tips on where to go and what to see around town, and a very well stocked kitchen and BBQ area. Safe parking out the back...

So glad I chose this place for my 10day stay. The location is amazing, I walked everywhere, close to the restaurants, surf schools and 5 minute walk to the beach (they also provide you with the beach towels). The staff is really great and genuinely willing to help you with anything. Well maintained and neat place, my room was refreshed...

We had a wonderful time staying in beautiful J'Bay. Funky Town is a very safe and clean place offering a big living room and the most perfect kitchen for self-catering I've ever seen. I can definitely recommand this place.

We've staying in Jbay a few times before and this was by far the best accommodation. Clean, neat, comfy and aesthetically pleasing. And it's around the corner from the restaurants and shops. We'd definitely stay here again.

Lots of facilities available. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Good idea to have concrete floors for easy removal of sand. Good kitchen facilities and common area. Close to the beach. Only criticism is that there is no mini shampoo and conditioner in the rooms. There was also a very loud live singing at a bar or somewhere nearby so I...
