We stayed on the first floor for two nights in January 2016. It was big and open and sorta-luxe, though it looked as if it was in the second decade of its original interior styling; worn cushions, old bathroom fixtures/broken toilet, and bathroom/kitchen items beyond their prime. The unit was comfortable and airy during the day, but we were instructed... More

Yvonne and the cleaning lady were friendly and helpful. Our unit was huge and a joy to live in. It has all the equipment that one needs except maybe a tumble dryer which would be useful. We are looking forward to our third visit at the end of this year!

On arrival we were welcomed by Yvonne who showed us to our room. It was spacious, had all the expected necessities, but in particular had a lovely view of the Indian Ocean. Access to a lovely lounge with an equally stunning view. Good breakfast and honesty bar in the lounge completed a lovely stay.

The room was large and well-equipped. Everything was super-clean and neat. The only downside was hot water. We had the misfortune of waking up later than another guest who loved... More

This B&B rates highly based on the owners, Anthony and Colleen, who are so friendly I'd go back over and over! The rooms themselves are spacious, beautifully decorated, and luxurious, and breakfast was laid on like we were at a 5-star resort! If the weather had been nicer we'd probably have taken advantage of the pool; as it was we... More

We drove into small seaside town of Port Alfred without a hotel booking and in desperate need of somewhere clean, comfortable and welcoming after having spent the previous night without sleep on safari in one of the Eastern Cape’s game reserves. Sometimes in life – chance can pay dividends. And by chance we saw a road sign to “Carnoustie” showing... More
