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.

Best guesthouse with the most professional hosts and manager and personnel. View is stunning. Personal touch and we had a fantastic sundowner boat ride with the owner and his personnel and friends on the canals. Will definitely stay in this B&B again. Thanks Brian!
