My wife and I were on a self guided tour of S Africa and heading towards Port Elizabeth. We had found this guest house on line when looking for a stop over enroute and could not have found anywhere better. The room was extremely comfortable, breakfast was excellent and we were made very welcome. So glad we found it!

We made a last minute booking via the Information Centre for a one night stay. Good position, good value and a great breakfast. The owner was away but the manager in charge was competent and professional.

We stayed in the self-catering cottage consisting of 2 bedrooms en suite with a combined lounge and kitchen. It is situated on the first floor behind the main building and is very comfortable. The guest house is located close to Leisure Island. Away from the hustle and bustle and traffic of the main town. But easily accessible. On the first...

Very pretty housing, Karin (the landlord) has created every room with its personal style. Most unique breakfast in South Africa directly prepared by Karin. If you ask, you can hear true stories that compete with "Out of Africa" (the famous movie with Meryl Streep, Robert Redford). We wouldn't go elsewhere if we are around ever again.
