In these difficult times, going on a road trip was not an easy decision, but it was a necessary one for us just to slow down and reconnect as a family. After a 8hr trip all you hope for is that your accommodation is clean with warm water :-) Margate GH has that and much more.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Johan, Gabby, Katie & Princess @ Margate GH for making this part of our EC trip so comfortable and homey.
We were received @ 8pm on a Sunday eve as you would friends or family members. Johan and Gabby are warm & inviting and very thorough. Our rooms were like stepping into a home away from home. The kitchens’ fitted with all the practical requirements for a short or longer stay.
As I still had to work on our first day, my breakfast was brought to the room. It was warm and delicious. The staff we met, Katie & Princess are friendly and efficient.

We booked a game drive in Addo and needed to leave before 7am and thus a packed lunch was offered…wow were we bowled over by this. From the endearing messages attached to each pack to the well thought through content….Yummy with a double thumbs up.

The location is perfect, a stones throw away from the beach, restaurants and shops. The area is safe and sirene and all amenities provided for is as advertised.

Johan, Gabby we cannot fault you in what you are doing. Keep it up. You guys are super stars. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

From: The October Clan from CPT❣️

Staying at Margate Place was an absolute pleasure! The attention to detail in the room to make it home from home, is extraordinary. Everything that you need on your trip for comfort and convenience was available. The staff serving breakfast were very friendly and professional and can not do enough for guests. Johan and Gabbi are great hosts! The BnB is also situated close to the beach, shops, the University and the Airport. Secure parking, lovely garden. Wish i could stay longer!

Probably my 10th visit to this gem of a guest house. You don’t get friendlier, more obliging, prettier or cleaner than Margate Place! Right at the shore, 100m to the shops. Quiet Garden is pure heaven! Lots of sunny spots to enjoy your morning coffee! The little wine bottles in the fridge - such a lovely touch! Had a perfectly safe reunion with family - thanks for the little strategic sanitizers!
Well done Melinda!

Absolute fantastic place, home away from home. Clean and great hygiene protocols. Melinda always goes out of her way to meet your expectations.
Friendly and polite. A must place to be less than a kilometre from the beach.

This is a good location hotel and everything BUT our vacation was very much disturbed by the landlady going on and on about how the blacks and the coloured people were useless
(right in front of her own black "servants"). We felt very uncomfortable about this and told her so, but when we disagreed she was agitated.
Also there was mud and rocks in her pool from the neighbour´s drilling project and she
1, did not ask about how her guests were doing without the pool but only compalined to us over and over again about how expensive this was going to be for her.
2, when we comforted her that the damage would probably be covered by the neighbour or his insurance, she once again showed her racial side and concluded " well he is jewish, I can´t expect a penny from him!!!

Dear Guest, We are so sorry to hear about your experience. Please note that Margate Place had a change of ownership on 1 April 2016 and has become a place where everyone is welcome and treated with dignity and respect. We can only apologize for what happened before. We will really appreciate if you could read through our reviews from people from all walks of life to see what they think about us and I am sure the reviews will speak for us. Maybe you too will return to us one day and can experience this for yourself Kind regards The Margate Place Family

I found Margate's place randomly through Google but I was very happy with my choice. Everyone was very friendly, professional and welcoming (Melinda, Trevor, Princess and Katie). Melinda booked all trips for me (to Addo, Schotia Park and around Port Elizabeth + taxi transfer) and the guides were very good. I even got BB delivered to my bed because I wanted to watch a movie on TV one morning plus Melinda arranged a take away BB for the Friday morning I was leaving very early. Well done, everyone. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Can only recommond you!!

Super friendly crew that really went out of their way to make our visit as comfortable as possible.
Everything from their food to the cleaning of our room was top class. They helped us book all from Taxis to Safaris and everything was as smooth and as exciting as one would hope for.
