Spent two nights here before starting a small group tour of the Garden Route.

Our flight landed at 12:30 and we were at the property by 1:00. We knew that check-in is at 3:00, so were prepared to wait. The cheerful woman at the desk said that she thought our room might be ready and went to check. She came back saying that it was, except that the floor might not have fully dried yet. She took us there and it was fine. The room was spacious, clean, and the bed was comfortable - excellent!

The breakfast service there was one of the best of our entire trip. There is a buffet of fruit, yogurt, and breads, then they take your order for one of about 6 or 7 cooked breakfasts from a menu on the table.

Again, let me emphasize how friendly and accommodating the staff was! Highest marks to them and if I return, I would 100% want to stay there again!

Here is where you really experience the proverbial home away home. Mihlali was an amazing host. She possesses this warmth, charisma and charming smile that makes you feel overwhelmingly welcome immediately you set you foot in the premises.

It was a great time staying at Africa beach B&B, the service from the staff was on top level. Slept well, safety is prioritise. Cleanness makes the place more special. Its was also easy for me to find the place from the airport.

It was ok.
Got a reasonable rate for a a longish stay.
It was a double but I was alone. . nice space . big room, big bathroom.
But at the start it was recommended I bath rather then shower because the showers overfows into the big bathroom.
Nonsensical considering the water issues in PE . the washbasins/ shower drainage made a racket.
Other then that I was well looked after

This place is excellent, from the staff to the rooms and around the property. From booking to checkout all was very easy. The room we stayed in was neat with a beautiful view of the garden and pool.
One thing I would suggest is adding alternatives on the breakfast menu to accommodate different diets, e.g. wheat-free, dairy-free, pork-free etc.

Excellent location close to the Boardwalk and Casino....which means easy access to good restaurants, shopping and the beach. Jurgen, the owner, has two properties right next to each other and it is well organized and very CLEAN. All the staff are very personable and the grounds to the property are well kept. I was ready to move in permanently. The room was comfortable and the breakfast amazing. If you are driving a car you can park inside the gate in a secure location. Very secure. The photos displayed on this page are real and exact.

This B & B is more a hotel than a little guest house, however still very personal with great service.
Very nice & spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and more than you would expect in a B & B (fridge, microwave, coffee machine, honesty bar).
If weather permits, you can enjoy the little garden and the pools.

We were a group of six going to the Oyster really in Port Elizabeth and needed a one night Bed And Breakfast in Summerstrand. After a long search on the internet, Africa beach bed and breakfast met all our needs. The hostess were very friendly and showed us the rooms, reccomended a great restuarant, give us the WiFi password and arranged a time for breakfast that suit us. All 3 rooms were beautifull decorated with a balcony and we were grouped together at the pool. The beds were very comfortable and after a long days drive on a motobike we were glad to get a good night's sleep. The room had electric blankets, wall panel heater, a roof fan and coffee making facilities. We were impressed to choose breakfast from a menu of 6 choices but when our food arrived it was cold and very dissapointing, but the hostess did appologize when we left. There is a great espresso and latte maker which we all enjoyed. The premises has safe parking with Electric gates. It is walking distance from the beach, restuarants and the casino. I can reccommend this Guesthouse for comfortability and location.

Response from africabeach, Owner at Africa Beach Bed and Breakfast
Responded 14 Aug 2019
Dear Ria, Thank you for your review! We are very happy that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us! Our apologies however for the unsatisfying breakfast experience you had. I have spoken to the colleagues involved and it looks like they were more concentrating at serving your breakfast all at the same time, rather than getting them to you as soon as they were ready. The wrap took longer and the English breakfasts were waiting to be served in the meantime… A clear mistake from our side, which should not have happened and will not happen again. Once again, our sincere apologies from the whole team, we hope we will be able to make up for it on your next visit! Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at headoffice@africabeach.co.za should you wish to bring anything else to my attention. Thank you! Best regards, Jürgen
