We stayed for one night before leaving beautiful South Africa by airplane. We arrived too early, but we could check in immediately. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great. Unfortunately it was too cold to use the swimming pool. The only minor shortcoming was that there was an open...

The rooms are lovely and the beds super comfy. The food was always good and the service beyond reproach. Everyone at the Guesthouse went out of their way to assist us and have helped our daughter to settle down in PE knowing that there are friendly faces just around the corner should she need them!

Very friendly staff, very private set up and the breakfast was amazing! I got there late but the staff was more than willing to wait for me. I was received with an "Ubuntu" warmth. I am definitely going back.

I don't believe that the bedding was changed before we arrived and nor was the shower cleaned because the floor was still wet. There weren't enough towels and the ones that were there hadn't been washed or rinsed properly.

We arrived in Port Elizabeth for one night after a very long journey, and were happy to find an inviting guest house in the V&A. Our hosts were extremely helpful, with extra plugs and everything else we needed. The room was described as a "Standard Double Room with Shower", although the shower was more of a trickle. Other than that...

The place was great, spacious room & very neat. Breakfast wasn't that great, if you can improve in that area & offer more variety. Also, increase TV channels more especially faith channels. I thank you for the hospitality, looking forward to visit again.

For me, a business travel experience should be "home-from-home". My stay at V&A Guest house was far removed from it. For the one night I stayed over, I wanted to relax in my room and watch some TV (channels of my choice). I was was not awarded this opportunity, as the Matron would not reset the "dead" channels. I was...

from airport and to city and surrounds, location is perfect. neat, clean, affordable, pleasant. staff very helpful, cheerful and breakfast, simple, ample and delicious. some noisy teenagers did have a private party, week night on the grounds of the guest house. not ideal for those who had to work the next day.
