I was met with the most friendly staff and manager of the guest house. The guest house is perfectly located with easy access onto the beach. A stroll to the left takes you along the beautiful, sandy, warm waters of Port Alfred.

A beautifully manicured garden with an awesome room that overlooks the beach and ocean makes this B & B one worth recommending. The check-in was pleasant as was the service at breakfast. The food was outstanding and the room was spacious and beautifully decorated.

The house is right by the beach so out of the room across a small quiet local road to the beach. Very quiet and tranquil. The house has a lovely pool and the breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The host is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Sad we only had one night here.

Excellent service in very good accommodation where attention to detail was superb. Located close to beach with view of sea beyond sand dunes. We would not hesitate to return on a future visit to South Africa.

The manager and her staff were fantastic and faultless. Such a lovely welcome with cups of tea. The breakfast was amazing.

The website photos are misleading giving the impression the...

Stayed for 3 nights early January 17. Beautiful clean room with good views. The beach just opposite. Isabeau was a great host, a mind of information. Nothing too much trouble for her. Good breakfast, plenty of good restaurants near by. Would recommend for a quiet restful few days. We will certainly stay there again

We arrived after a storm so air conditioning wasn't working in our room. Not a problem though as there was a very effective paddle fan in the room. We stayed on a Sunday which meant town was very quiet and not easy to find somewhere to eat in the evening. The hotel was fine although a bit "tired" compared to...

Sadly we only had a 1 night stop here in early December 2016. The Beach House is in a stunning location right opposite the beach. We have a beautifully appointed room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the dunes and the sea. Isabeau is a great host and was very welcoming. This was our first visit to Port...
