I spent a night here in June 2022 for R1 250 B&B. Very comfortable room and some quite luxurious features. Food very good, both for dinner at the Highlander pub (great chicken salad) and breakfast which was generous and served with great efficiency. All in all probably the best option in Port Alfred, and deservedly so.

no assistance with luggage, aircon did not work reported twice a day, each time to be told that it was repaired. service so poor at our first breakfast, so we decided to skip the breakfasts for the remaining days, After speaking to the manager on our last evening, he checked our rooms aircon and then refunded us part of the daily rate, the manager was the only efficient person at the hotel.

very comfortable and beautiful hotel and they have a kids playstation room which was a delight to our children who were looked after whilst they made friends. The Highlander's pub served good food too and this was a pleasant surprise. Port Alfred is a beautiful and safe town, we'll return!

Accommodative, friendly staff. We even had a fruit basket, wine, little chocolates on our pillows and a welcoming note from the manager as returning guests. We also knew the name of the lady who was cleaning our room

We stayed for one night but it was an amazing stay. The staff is very friendly and always available and willing to assist with anything. Our room was better than any place I have ever stayed at and the restaurant food is out of this world. Thank you for the great hospitality.

This hotel was very impressive from start to finish - the main driver being the excellent and friendly staff! The hotel itself is modern and clean and has various dining options - all of them are great - the breakfast is the true winner! The staff are all very friendly but KC stood out as a true rockstar - some of the best service received in a long time!

We stayed in the paraplegic room and we have only one complaint. A person in a wheelchair is unable to access the basin in the bathroom because there is a solid cupboard underneath the basin - the wheelchair cannot roll into position. It would be excellent +++ if management could sort out this shortcoming and then the room can truly be called wheelchair accessible.
