Hoylake Inn @ Bunkers Hill

On the crest of upmarket Bunkers Hill, lies Hoylake Inn.

We, your resident owners, Laura, Kim and Dylan, wish to make your stay as peaceful, private and comfortable as possible.

Our guest house property is spacious and Bunkers Hill is particularly central, situated just minutes from the East London beachfront with its variety of restaurants and take-aways; and within 5 minutes drive from other beaches, the CBD and Berea / Vincent business centres and malls.

Dining Room

Our Dining room is large enough to seat up to 22 people. One large, central, solid wooden table, seating large groups of 10; surrounded by 4 smaller, sleeper wood tables for groups of 3 or less, are spaciously positioned under a magnificent, open vaulted ceiling.

Behind our lemonwood bar, guests will find drinking glasses and a fridge stocked with beer, wine and soft drinks. Honesty bar ethics prevail.

In the far corner is a comfortable sitting area with flat screen TV for those who wish to catch up with the news or a favourite sporting event.

For guests who stay, we offer the Dining Room as a small conference/hosting/ training facility. Catering can be supplied if required. Please inquire for a quote.
