This has to be one of the nicest guest houses we have stayed at in South Africa and we travel a lot. The unit was large, very comfortable, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Attention to detail was great. The breakfast was superb - beautifully prepared and presented in your unit. Louise is a friendly and attentive host. I cannot recommend The Lookout highly enough.

The room we had was more like a studio apartment with bedroom, bathroom, living room and small kitchen. It was clean, comfortable and the breakfast delicious and beautifully prepared. Warmly welcomed.

The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast will serve directly in the apartement, it´s a wonderful and good breakfast.
There´s a big terrace with sun lies and a small pool area.

We had a very friendly welcome and experienced during the whole stay friendly service
It's a nice self catering apartment with stunning view over Port Alfred and to the Ocean.
Everything is done with love and passion. The Breakfast is simply Excellent. Thanks Louisa and Team. And, after the poor experience in KZN it was a pleasure to have proper WiFi/Internet service again.
