My husband and I spent our vacation at East London during the festive season and we had an amazinbg stay at Cloud 9. The view was breathtaking overlooking a river and hills, away from traffic which provided a tranquil atmosphere. On the deck one can swim overlooking this view which is very therapeutic and beautiful.The accommodation was very cozy and clean. It was also very quiet and peaceful. Our host, Jackie and Blake were very friendly and hospitable catering to all our accommodation needs.
My husband an I definitely recommend Cloud 9 and will come back again. The service overall was excellent.
Thank you Jackiei and Blake and to all your staff for making this a memorable and relaxing vacation.

Thank-you to Jackie, who set me up in a lovely room with everything I needed to eat, work and sleep. The property has an awesome view and the breakfast was delicious. Jackie even explained in detail how to get to the shops and restaurants in the area.

The stay was great! Calming. Quiet. Had no issues.

We just ran out of coffee.. We are quite the coffee lovers! 😊😂

It was safe and we had all we needed. Sanitizer and all other bathroom necessities. It's close to restaurants, convenient stores and Seattle coffee 😊

We paid for bed AND breakfast, travelled 8 hours from home en route to our next destination. We were asked to let Jackie know what time we’d like breakfast and we asked for 0630am as we have more hours to drive. We’re told that breakfast isn’t offered before 8am on public holidays!!!! Since when does a 4 star establishment offer breakfast later to their guests? Then we were offered a breakfast pack so I asked for egg and bacon sandwich and coffee and was again told that this would be done the night before!!!!! Bizarre😡. There was no tea or coffee in the room nor was the TV remote working. So much for your warm and welcome hospitality. Never again.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality, however, in life, there are unavoidable family emergencies. This guest has no compassion or understanding for our family medical emergency and no amount of explaining or trying to appease her, was enough. I don't do breakfasts at 6.30, EVER. I offer breakfast packs for early travellers. You only had to open the coffee/tea caddy to find the coffee and tea. Never again would I even accept Fiona at my property, not even for free.

Excellent venue. Very accommodating hostess. Last minute booking for a business stay over. Reached very late, but still received very warm welcome. Fantastic breakfast. Beautiful view over river frontage. Will definitely recommend.

I booked at Cloud 9 for the first time during February 2017, and I must say, I was impressed. The rooms were clean, the pool was clear and cool enough to swim in even at night. Home made two course meals were freshly prepared on a daily basis. Would I recommend this spot... definitely.

I stayed at Cloud 9 for one night while visiting East London. The room was great with modern furniture and finishes and the bed very comfortable with good quality bedding. The view from the deck was amazing, looking over the river.
