As we arrived in Port Alfred and saw this guesthouse, we were really surprised how beautiful it was. The lady is a perfect and very friendly host. She does you feel like home. A big thank you for the pleasant stay.

Cynthia thank you very much for your sincere welcome and hospitality.The cottages were cosy and very very clean.
We enjoyed your well prepared sumptuous breakfast. We really experienced an old world charm in the beautifully renovated cottages. We can definitely recommend Coral B & B.

This delightful cottage is exactly as described on the websites. The breakfasts we had here were absolutely delicious. Not the same old boring bacon and eggs you get everywhere else. I just have to mention that we were on holiday and would have loved to sleep in a little. Other guests were leaving early and had their breakfast early and was quite noisy outside our window.

Cynthia was a very helpful and informative host. She gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants and activities in the area.

We will definitely be back for another visit.

We are not people who "complain" easily as we have owned a B&B ourselves and stayed in many. However, when we tried to provide her with 2 complaints so that she could maybe sort out for next guests, she got aggressive. I strongly urge holidaymakers to steer clear of this place for the season. We wanted to tell her that there was a tree branch hitting the roof all night (just needs a trim) and that we could not shower as the pressure pump is too low to ignite the geyser. What is described as lush pretty gardens is actually overgrown bush, the rooms are so musty, they must have been aired out 21 years ago, the coffee container was empty and had hard coffee stains in the bottom of it. The place was full of bugs and insects due to overgrown bush. Sleeping place for 6 couples, parking for 2?? Hard to find the place so stuck away. The tv just shows snowy images, cannot even find a news program.

Response from 72Cynthia_13, Owner at Coral Guest Cottages
Responded 22 Nov 2015
Dear Kevin and Marcelle, I wish to apologise for the appearance of being a hostile person , this is not usually how I am had a terrible night before(health) and usually I am able to handle it. Looked into your complaints and have taken care of the problems mentioned as well as tree branch hitting against the roof, must admit that not staying in the cottage myself I was never aware of this and I actually welcome my guests input . I am a widow and depend on this as a income and have spent many years building up a warm relationship with my guests as you will see by reading past reviews. I offer you a weekend for two as my guests no charge to make up for my be havour and would be pleased if you would accept this in the spirit it is given. Warm Regards Cynthia

What an esquisite little hidden away "cosy" cottage, it is the perfect place to be @ home away from home!! :) Nestled in a lush green "foresty" garden which makes you feel like you are in the middle of a "nature reserve". Such a wonderful en-suite with all the necessary "homely" feel attributes! Rest and relaxation.....need i say more! Cynthia the owner of Coral Guest Cottages is the perfect host, such friendliness and helpfulness, and what an absolutly delicious breakfast****
We will be back!!!! :)

We loved it here. Cynthia is wonderful as a host and you can expect something a bit different for breakfast every morning. It's great so remember to book the breakfast if you are going for the self-catering unit. The location overall is close to everything in Port Alfred, but provides a bit more out of the way privacy!

There are few options for accomodation at Coral's. The first being a Bed and breakfast only option is a georgous old cottage. Owned by a doctor in the 1800's, this lovely old cottage has been moved lock stock and barrel to its present location in Cynthias lushious garden.

The next option is a modern and spacious up/down unit with self catering facilities. Both are lovely.

Cyntia is a charming and un-obtrusive hostess who makes GREAT breakfasts. WEll worth the stop .

Very warm hostess, Cynthia, with a lovely personal touch and a beautifully kept, gorgeous cottage-style guest house. Superb breakfast. We loved our stay and the rate was very reasonable. Beautiful tropical, lush garden, tranquil and lots of birds

The cottage was spotless. Our host was wonderful and charming. The garden is very well maintained. The cottage is also a historical place, it has a lot of character. Port Alfred was an amazing place, we loved it.

Thank you Cynthia, a really beautiful cottage, great self catering facilities and a wonderful welcome, what a pity we couldn't stay longer. Didn't have time for breakfast, am sure it would have been great. Gary and Chanda

"We stayed in the self-catering unit and its definitely the best option if you are looking for a romantic weekend away. All the cottages are beautifully renovated and captures the Settler's style very well, but the two B&B cottages are very close together. So the self-catering unit is definitely the way to go if you want a bit more privacy."
