I had a wonderful stay at Algoa Guest House. Received excellent hospitality from Staff members though I checked in very late because I was driving from East London. I received a friendly call from the receptionist checking on how far I was because the reception close at 7pm, I told the lady I was going to arrive 30 minutes late. The lady said I must not worry they will wait for me and wished a safe trip. I would really recommend the place to friends and colleagues

The hospitality received from the host Lisa and her daughter was excellent. The rooms are clean and service staff were professional! Major plus is the comfort of the solar during load shedding. Will definitely recommend!

Lisa made all effort to ensure that we are comfortable throughout our stay. She also arranged breakfast to accommodate for our dietary requirements at no additional cost. Breakfast was abundant and tasty. The location of the property is also in a close proximity to the beach and shopping complexes in case you forget to pack something.

The place is absolutely perfect for a solo traveler and the host, Lisa, was kind and very accommodating. Location is perfect and close to the beach if you're up for a scenic stroll. Truly enjoyed my short stay there and would highly recommend.

I had enjoyed every minute of my stay at this Bnb. The Manager was friendly and caring. She assisted with everything I needed including advises on the schools and properties I should visit as I was in town for a short period to find accommodation and schools for my children due to relocation.
