I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough! From the moment you enter, every need is met meticulously. The rooms are extremely spacious with the finest linen and tastefully decorated with a modern feel. There is a sense of luxury. Loved the bathroom with the high glass separation but so totally private as well. The place is spotless! Lovely touches as well - USB phone charges on the headboard between the pillows; two separate bed light functions! The food is delicious; good variety of breakfast options - dinner is also an option which is so nice after a long day. Have definitely found by Guest House in Port Elizabeth.

The room was excellent, all facilities and immaculate. Being able to get a light meal in the evening was a major bonus. Can't remember the young lady's name who was on reception and did the meal but she was excellent.
