Delightful accommodation, very modern and well fitted bathroom. Very pleasant surroundings and grounds. Welcoming and friendly hosts. Arranged an early picnic breakfast for us as we had an early flight . Very handy for the airport. Hosts couldnt't have been more helpful!

Having landed in PE after an over night flight to Jo'burg and then a connection to PE we couldn't have asked for a better welcome. The rooms were well equipped with an interesting collection of African artefacts. Wonderful gardens to wander around and a welcoming pool to cool down in. Breakfast was a delight.

By far one of the best guest houses I have stayed in Port Elizabeth! Extremely large comfortable rooms with luxurious linen and towels and lovely personal touches to make our stay memorable. The garden is huge, well maintained and particularly exquisite! Cannot fault a thing. Highly recommended!

First visit to Forest Hall & most likely will not be our last. We were very pleased with our accommodation which was in the cottages furthest from the main house. The quality of fixtures & fittings was good & with our own covered stoep it was easy to relax & enjoy ourselves. Our guests also enjoyed their accommodation next door....

Thank you for your review and feedback. Pleased you enjoyed your stay .Just for the record . None of our rooms are equipped with air conditioning ,all have ceiling fans and additional countertop fans to place next to your bedside. The ceiling fan has 3 speed settings to adjust accordingly. Generally this seems adequate for most seasons in Port Elizabeth...

We loved Forest Hall - beautifully finished rooms in a lush and quiet setting. We enjoyed staying somewhere removed from the main beachfront area (about 15 - 20 minute drive), and found the hospitality and facilities excellent. The breakfast is very good, and we would definitely stay here again.

The rooms and en-suite bathrooms are large and very luxurious. Our family occupied three suites, and all were excellent. Nice touches like biscuits, tea/coffee and a sherry decanter in each room. The rooms are spread around the grounds (which are beautifully maintained.) There is a pool too. Excellent full breakfast. Can't fault a thing, and we would certainly stay again...

Very pleasant operators, but dated decor and limited facilities. Quiet and a bit remote from restaurants or other services if you don't have a vehicle. Wonderful breakfast, wide variety of options. Nice grounds but don't think I'd swim in the "Roman"--water looked a bit funky.
