The Lookout Guest House
Ranked #2 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2016

We enjoyed a luxurious stay in gorgeous, upmarket accommodation ... modern with all the right comforts at affordable rates. The views from the private deck and plunge pool were unbeatable, the service was exceptional and we were brought a fine breakfast to enjoy on the pool deck overlooking the ocean, exquisitely done and a very warm reception from an amazing hostess. A definite repeat!

booked a 2 night stay in December simply for some R & R and to visit a part of S A we had not been before. Louise met us on arrival and showed us to the room, which was very clean and very comfortable, all the amenities you would expect. A super splash pool outside with fabulous views of Port Alfred. a couple of restaurants within walking distance and very close to the beach, would certainly recommend

We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Lookout. The accommodations, the gardens, and view of the marina and ocean were beautiful. The owner, Louise, was very helpful and kind. We will most certainly be back!

The high standard and friendly service as on our previous visit a few years ago has been maintained. Comfortable accommodation, very good breakfast. This is not easily matched. The wonderful view all the way to the sea is a bonus.

An extremely charming and gracious hostess welcomed us to a particularly airy, well appointed self catering unit with all the bells and whistles. Comfortable beds made sure we had a good nights sleep. The breakfast at our own dinning-room table in our 'apartment' was imaginative and simply superb! Highly recommended to anyone wanting an above average, in fact, above superior accommodation!
