We stopped here in between Christmas and New Year. Great location right on the beach, and even though it faces onto the beach road there was no traffic noise to speak of. Isabeau, the manager, was very welcoming and friendly and quickly made us feel at home. Very good breakfasts cooked to order. Booked late, so didn't have a good...

Excellent accommodation and hospitality in an ideal location. Plenty to do and see around Port Alfred. Superb beach just on the other side of the road. Plenty of game viewing in the vicinity and lots of eating out opportunities.

Lovely location on the beach front, great breakfasts and bedroom on 1st floor offers great views (better than ground in my opinion). Bedroom super clean with really good sized fridge for drinks/snacks. Isabeau and her team could not be more helpful. 10-15 mins walk to local hotel/pub and restaurant. Good overall location (small town, not full of tourists) to visit...

It is a lovely place. I think I would have enjoyed it better if I was on vacation and not on business. The view is so nice and you can hear the see from your room. Parking was the only problem for me, but overall one of the best places I stayed in.\

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.
