We really can't fault any of the facilities or the service we received. me might only have been there for the one night but, it felt like a whole week of relaxation. The Spa was beyond anything either my wife or I have ever experienced. THANK YOU ALL.

The hotel is very comfortable, clean and well-positioned. Lovely food and friendly staff make the place even more pleasant. It was my second time at this hotel and I am already planning another trip to this hotel. The beach is not far from their location, which makes this place a good spot for tourists.

The treatment I received from St Andrews Hotel was outstanding. From the very first time I picked up the phone to make a booking, the very staff I spoke to, namely Phumlani made me feel I was the only customer. The breakfast was of high standard and mouth watering, the staff thereat was more than friendly. The room was very clean and beautiful. I cannot forget to appreciate you for everything you have done for our anniversary, it will remain in our hearts and minds for a very long time.

We spent a weekend at the hotel. I needed to arrange for 27 people (8 couples with children). What a breeze and everything went off perfectly. Special Father’s Day gifts for us and superb catering for vegans - a hidden gem in Port Alfred and a great base from which to explore the area.

Such a lovely environment. Very modern and the architecture of the hotel is worth having a look at. Rooms are large and homely, with everything one would need. The conference facility was great. Refreshments were always provided for and the tea time snacks were such a great refuel. There was a buffet for all our meals which was just amazing. No pre-ordering had to be done therefore no wasting of time. Which is always an worry at a business retreat.
