Joan & Mike are excellent hosts who took very good care of my mom, sister and I during our stay (great breakfast!) Rooms & amenities are even nicer than in the photos, and the location is very convenient. We hope to visit again in the future.

We've stopped here a number of times over the years and always look forward to coming back. Joan and Mike are very welcoming: nothing is too much trouble and they always find time to chat, point us the direction of the best restaurants, places to visit, etc. The en suite rooms are very spacious with quality beds and furnishings, incl DSTV and aircon. The cooked breakfasts are very good too. You never come away hungry! The beach, golf course, two good restaurants and two pubs are all within walking distance, with the town itself just a couple of minutes' drive away. Don't come to the Eastern Cape without visiting Sheilan House and Port Alfred.
