The old military buildings at the foot of the Hangklip mountain have seen many incarnations since they were turned into a hotel after WW2 – it has had its heydays and its strange days but there is no denying the part it played in many people’s lives in some way or another.
After the war, the site under the rock became the quintessential beach hotel with wild stories of dancing and merriment. In the sixties the hotel was a haven for fisherman and divers. Students flocked to the hotel during weekends and holidays to enjoy the quirkiness and freedom the hotel offered.
To this day people from all walks of life return to the hotel to reminisce and share stories of first loves, ghosts, scandals and the eccentric characters that used to hang out (some still do!) at the hotel.
The Hotel hosts a spectrum of live music events over weekends, serves wonderful pub fare in the restaurant and has both rooms and self-catering chalets available. The Plankies pub has a long and abiding reputation amongst local and holiday revellers.
