I was absolutely floored by the amount of space there is available in all the rooms. We got moved around twice because of an administrative issue but all was well.

What wonderful place to stay in for a city dweller. The Pond, fresh air, fresh food, serene environment, friendly staff. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family in Gauteng for a "get away" for a weekend, holidays or school holidays. It seems there is much more to explore if one had planned for a longer stay,...

Booked a room through booking.com for one night as we were crossing SA. The staff were friendly and hospitable throughout our stay. The meals were amazing! We will schedule other trips around Port Alfred because of this accommodation. Thanks a lot!

The service at reception, rooms and at the restaurant was exceptional. As mentioned in previous ratings, my room, which was for one person had a massive bed whilst the suite for my parents had a tiny bed for a couple but a beautiful view!

Dear 735esthern Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate that your parents found the queen size bed too small for them. Next time we will book them into a room with a king size bed. Warm regards Sisonke Mapuma General Manager

Fresh property with clean and spacious rooms - staff always willing to help. The evening setting is brilliant "on the river" and facilities to have an outdoor dinner if so desired. This is a gem located in unlikely surroundings in the Kowie area.
