Wow, what a wonderful place to stay. The facility has a lovely, contemporary feel to it. The staff is so helpful. A bonus is that it is very close to the airport so it is a great choice b fore flying out of Port Elizabeth Airport . We needed directions to the airport and a family member of the owner INSISTED to have us follow her to the airport so we would not be stressed!!!!!! This is truly a hidden gem .

We stayed for 2 nights only, but we really enjoyed it. The rooms, restaurant and garden are nice and stylefull by modern design; the beds are perfect. But the most admirable aspect is the devotion to classic service from all staff members at all hours of the day. Especially when normal work has been disrupted by irregular power cuts/load shedding. A guest house that feels like a familiar house and receiving you as a guest is a joy.
