Stayed here just overnight but quite memorable.
Stayed in a double + single bed room, travelled with 4 year child.
Bev the hostess is charming indeed and takes genuine pleasure in caring for her guests.
Even took my son ( and us) to the garden backyard to show the koi fish pond and the bunny rabbit and he still talks about it, three months later.
And being vegetarians, breakfasts on all other days of our 2 week stay was rather forgettable.
But Le Fishermans was the exception. Not just an exception but exceptional too and a great variety of it. We were so stuffed that we had to skip lunch!
And so close to the beach although no views from the b& b itself.Could enjoy a morning jog with great views.
If not for our prebooked accomodations at Addo, would have very much liked to extend our stay here.
Thoroughly recommend Le Fishermans for an enjoyable stay at Port Elizabeth

Me and two of my friends stayed here on a getaway weekend to Port Elizabeth, and it was the perfect location! Quick walk to the beach, where there was a wonderful path and boardwalk to run and walk on, and not at all far from the bustling Boardwalk area. Bev and her husband were a delight, so welcoming and friendly, and cooked up a delightful breakfast! Our 3-person room was so quaint and well decorated, with a pleasant little garden and deck area outside. All was wonderful! Thank you!

We had a super stay at le Fishermans. Bev is charming, cooks like a dream and gives good advice on where to eat etc. The accommodation is comfortable and altogether it is a great place to stay. Bev is also a talented artist so you may even go home with a picture! Stay at le Fishermans if you get a chance.

We arrived in PE a day earlier than planned and had to find accommodation quickly. With the assistance of the helpful staff at Palm Beach Guest House we were directed to Le Fisherman. Bev was most gracious in accommodating us at the last minute. Our rooms were very comfortable, the guest house is very close to the beach in Summerstrand and provided us with a good breakfast. All in all a very good experience.

Bev is the best hostess we have ever encountered in all our travels. Right from the time I contacted her about the possibility of traveling there till the time we said goodbye was an absolutely pleasant and wonderful experience. We stayed with Bev for 8days during the Ironman 70.3 World Championship 2018. The beautiful room that she had assigned to us had a double bed and single bed which was perfect for my Husband, my little girl and I. The property is also 2 streets from a supermarket and couple of eateries, including a great Italian restaurant called Charlie's, where many would go for carbo loading meals. Not far away across the Marine Drive by the beach is another great place for food, called the Roadhouse. Every now and then, we would return back to our room with little treats for us. When my race ended, much to my delight was a special note left by Bev to congratulate me on finishing my race. The room and the property is absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. Before we left, Bev invited us for breakfast and we finally saw her beautiful artwork on the walls of the dining room. We couldn't resist and decided to bring one back to Singapore with us. We are so blessed to be able to visit and race in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and to be able to have such a wonderful stay through the whole time at Le Fishermans.

We Just arrived in Port Elizabeth and found this B&B, at short notice, we found Le Fishermans, Bev was lovely and had a room for 2 nights stay, one of the bigger rooms upstairs, very spacious.
The room was clean, very comfortable, very quiet and decor was elegant, the room looked out onto the pool.

Breakfast was served very prompt and had lots of variety, mushroom crispy round was lovely, cooked breakfast was served in style.

Bev was very helpful in what we could do in the area and what there was, we wanted to get specific things and Bev mentioned where we could find them.

Thank you Bev for accommodating us at short notice.
I would very well recommend anyone to stay here, the B&B is close to the beach, the main restaurants and shopping centres.

I spent 5 nights at Le Fishermans. Bev and Lange looked after me brilliantly. The place was brilliant, breakfast was excellent, but the caring nature of these people -well beyond the call of duty- was outstanding. Look no more.
