Recent guest reviews

We want to thank the friendly staff of Haylards. The beauty of the nature was awesome. We enjoyed the supper and the breakfast a lot. Food was excellent so are the rooms and the location of the hotel..

We spent a night at the halyard Hotel on our way down South a couple of weeks ago. The rooms are spacious and ours had a view of the waterways. The rooms need a little work, on arrival it felt like the room had not been aired and was quiet moldy smelling. The bathroom had a shower and old bath tub. The management and staff were very helpful and went out their way to make sure we were comfortable. The rate includes breakfast which was a very impressive buffet, with a good selection. on offer. All in all this is a pleasant but basic Hotel.

The hotel in general is in need of maintenance. Furniture and linen/towels is well worn and tatty. During peak Chrismas/New Year period hotel was full and noise levels at night unacceptable due to certain other guests. Staff were particularly friendly and helpful.

Was one of the best secrets on the coast but has deteriorated due to the lack of maintenance housekeeping and sanitation. Its very disappointing to see such a landmark literally rotting away and the infrastructure not being maintained. Make the place look like its is on the website please.

Rooms need upgrade to have modern look. The shower was not working as well. The furniture is old and broken. When opening the door fall off. But I enjoyed myself there. The pool bar was my favorite spot.

We booked a family room. The layout is perfect but the room was very dirty. The bathrooms are worse. The food was over cooked. The Restuarant staff are very friendly but unprofessional. Urgent upgrade

A picture tells a million of stories... This hotel needs a upgrade. We planned to stay there three nights in December 2017. The bathrooms were stained with rust. The couch was broken. And when I asked to see a room that could have been better than the one allocated, the receptionist advised us that that was the best out of all the rooms. The receptionist came across rude and abrupt. With that attitude we booked into the Royal St Andrews. Why didn't i book there initially.

My family and I had an awesome stay and enjoyed the Christmas lunch prepared. The food was tasty and in abundance. The staff was friendly and willing to assist. My family enjoyed the boat cruise and we all look forward to visiting the hotel again.

Linen especially towels they need to be changed to new ones,rooms be cleaned there was dust under the bed,tv all channels must play as in the guidline,noise there must be rules about noise even amongs the occupants

We had a nice stay. All was in order. The snag is your TV/DSTV. There were no proper channels, not even the basic channels like SABC1/2/3 and no Etv. The only channels that were available was a sport channels and commercials. To improve that you need to have as many options available as possible. Otherwise that can contribute negatively. On the overall all was well. The professionalism is there and i am happy about it.
