We stayed at MyPond in September 2020 right as lockdown eased up. We found the double room very comfortable and the shower was heavenly. There was a big window in the room, so it wasn’t dark enough at night but nothing an eye mask couldn’t fix. Also, the aircon kept blowing hard air then soft air. We couldn’t figure out how to make the setting more steady but it was still ok. The pillows and bed were the best. Super comfy! Breakfast on the river in the morning was also really nice! Especially the eggs Benedict! We found the room to be clean but would have like to see some sanitizer. The blow dryer was also amazing and location was perfect. I was worried about leaving my car parked outside but there was a car guard and no problems! Will try the suite next time and more food at

My husband and I stayed for 1 night in September. We checked in late and received a friendly welcome and was shown to our room. Strict adherence to COVID-19 procedures which was really good! The room was very spacious and clean. We had a lovely view of the river. Breakfast was reasonable. The reception and dining area was lovely and clean. Overall a lovely stay! Would definitely recommend!

We booked a room at short notice. We were delighted to be welcomed to the hotel with a big bright smile. Recommendations of restaurants close by, extremely helpful. We had a very early departue out of Port Alfred, our breakfast box was packed and ready at 6;30am. Views were awsome on the river bank. The rooms were squeaky clean. Absolutely worth a stay.
