One of the best guest houses that I've ever stayed in. Clean, modern, friendly staff, lovely breakfast. The staff bent over backwards to help us with any request. The rooms are modern and well thought out with USB and 2-pin plug points. We could not wish for anything more and only wish that we had found this guesthouse earlier. The best thing - the guesthouse was quiet. We will all be recommending it to friends and family. A truly wonderful stay. A very big thanks you to all. We will be back. There is no other place in PE to stay.

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.
