Pretty venue, comfortable accommodation & good service.
We requested advice where to have dinner & numerous venues were mentioned & a booking made for us. Dinner wasn't that great but that was not the fault of Brisan.
The establishment also made an effort with an earlier breakfast for us as we had to be in Port Elizabeth early.

Thanks for your comments, I was a tad shocked with the dinner you had at the restaurant I had recommended, and pointed the fact out to the owner, glad you enjoyed your stay with us and it was a pleasure getting you off on an early start. When next in town we will have to get you to one of the other restaurants in town. See you soon hopefully- Regards Kevin & Ursula- Management couple at Brisan on the Canals

We were travelling from PE to George over a couple of days and chose St Francis Bay as our
stop-over place for one night. What a pity it was only for one night. It was love at first sight, with both the quaint little town of St Francis Bay and the warm, friendly and very hospitable Brisan on the Canals.
We definitely hope to go back for a longer stay, not only to enjoy the wonderful food and warm hospitality at Brisan on the Canals, but also to explore the Canals and visit the St Francis Brewing Company again too.

We really enjoyed our 1 night stopover at Brisan on the Canals. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious with both bath and shower. The hosts are exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to assist us, even making a dinner reservation at a recommended local restaurant on our behalf. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. A stay here would be highly recommended.

Beautiful location overlooking canal.
Brian and Sandy are excellent hosts and the accommodation comfortable and spotless. Ideal for a stopover or longer. Thoroughly recommend the Canal trip on Brian's boat.

Excellent accommodation,the B&B is on the river bend. We did not catch the boat, but we say
the faces of those who had been out on it, they seemed to have had fun. The B&B boat leaves at about 4:30pm be sure to catch it. The view is wonderful.
Such a warm welcome, tranquil and wonderful breakfast.
Its a must stay in when visiting St.Francis.
