We stayed at Benri B&B for four nights in mid-February and loved every moment. The hosts and their staff were very professional and thoughtful. Bronwyn even made special cupcakes for all the guests on Valentine’s Day! It really was the thoughtful little touches that made our stay memorable, including the little bottle of port provided in the room, the lovely rusks, etc.

Very nice place with exceptional view from the Penthouse. The guesthouse is located in a nice area, only a view minites drive to Gonubie beach.

Unit was very neat and clean. Only drawback was the additional sleeper couch (for a 5th and 6th person) which was very uncomfortable.

Lovely location close to the beach, very helpful staff that make this place. I would highly recommend all business travelers to consider Benri B&B as a destination. No generator and having a look at the load shedding schedule before booking would be a good idea, as this might affect your comfort when staying.

My sea-view room had a balcony. Very quiet neighborhood. Thanks, ladies for your kindness and enormous South African hospitality, and for the delicious breakfast, which included boerewors sausage, bacon, eggs cooked to my specs, tomatoes and warm croissants. Gonubie Beach, located just north of East London, is stunning and not overbuilt. Use Benri B&B to enjoy this community.

Well received and taken care of in this lovely facility. I stayed in a smaller room and found it to be cosy, with everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. The verandah overlooked the sea and the area was safe and ideal for a run

The hospitality and friendliness of the staff makes you feel at home while not being at home. Great sea view and crashing sounds of the waves makes it a beautiful place I would reccomend to friends and family. accomodation is also great with all the things needed to make self catering a breeze. Had a wonderful stay

What can i say? Our stay at the Benri was the best. Daisy is one of the beautiful souls I have ever met, we didn't spend much time with Bronwyn but I'm sure she is as kind. The room that we stayed in had the beautiful view of the ocean and just the general service was superb. The kitchen staff was also friendly especially Phindi who always carried her beautiful smile. When we go back to East London, we will definitely go back to Benri BnB!!

We rented three rooms on the second floor and the penthouse for our recent stay at Benri. Our rooms were extremely comfortable, clean and well-equipped. The attention to detail the Benri staff makes is extraordinary and there was not one thing that we needed that wasn't already provided for us. We enjoyed clean towels each day, coffee, tea and homemade rusks in our rooms. The breakfast was excellent! We felt safe and and cared for during our stay. I highly recommend Benri for your next stay in Gonubie!
