The most beautiful spot. Exceptionally well positioned, beautiful rooms. Everything was 7 star from the room, the service, the unbelievable breakfast (best we have had anywhere) and the gorgeous resident dog Nixon. We will definitely be back.

A few days of walking on lovely pristine beaches, exploring a new area, trying different restaurants. Kowie River Guest House gave us an opportunity to have a complete rest, self cater when we wanted to, and enjoy the best ever breakfast in beautiful surroundings.

Sitting at the impressive breakfasts provided by Dale, looking out over the Kowie River, is a wonderful start to the day. Dale was a wonderful host, giving us loads of useful information that helped us discover hidden gems around the Port Alfred area that we would not have found by ourselves. The rooms are pristine, with wonderful verandahs overlooking the river. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful and tranquil home with lovely hosts. Would certainly revisit if ever in town again. My kids loved it as well. the boma is a winner even in summer. Wood fire braai by the river just makes one feel right at home and truly South African

A cosy little guest house right next to the river, with a beautiful view from the window/stoep. Not just bed and breakfast accommodation, but also equipped for self-catering if that is what you need. Very helpful and friendly owners. I really enjoyed my stay.
