Brisan On The Canals
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2017

Lovely guest house with the most Amazing view of the canal which was a delight to wake up to every morning. Kevin and Ursula fantastic hosts. Breakfast was delicious especially the light omelette. Golf at St Francis links is amazing and quiet and peaceful. The canal trip is a must and a bottle of wine goes down well. We will be back !!

Room Tip: Whale room v spacious but all are good

Sarah & Rob, we were thrilled to have had you folks as our guests. The St Francis Links Course is fast becoming a must-play course for the International traveler. We can't wait for your return and trust you arrived home safely- Regards Kev & Ursula.

I booked a comfort room in the first floor. They tried to give a standard room to me and I needed to rfer to my booking. The breakfast room is a little shabby and there have ben cobwebs in the roof, not very clean. St. Francis is calm, small and quite a ride to the coast. As Port Elisabeth it is often very windy.

Dearest Astrid, Thanks you for your honest review and we have taken your constructive criticism to heart and will up our game. We did originally ,on your arrival ,offer you a Canal facing de-lux room, however, you insisted in an upstairs room, which we duly gave to you. I do apologise for any inconvenience to yourself. We loved having you stay here with us and should you return we will make available our stunning "Honeymoon suite". Regards Kevin & Ursula

Clean and spacious room complemented with well sized bathroom.
Hosts, Kevin and Ursula are most tentative to all guests requirements.
Breakfasts are a delight, especially the fresh fruit salad,with a wonderful view onto the Canal.
A absolute must, is to take the river cruises that is run from this B+B. Kevin's knowledge of the Canal is enlightening and one can only experience this from a cruise, as each Canal offer a different perspective.
Recommendation from Kevin is to sample the freshest fish (in a box), is a must.
We will Definatly re-visit "Brisan on the Canal "

Room Tip: All Canal rooms are great, whether on ground level or upstairs with private balcony.

If you are looking for a place to stay when playing the links Golf course this is the place The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Kevin & Ursula are most welcoming and if required offer a magic breakfast. The B&B is right on the canal and one can go on a river cruise weather permitting. We will return again in the near future.
