We recently had an unexpected opportunity to travel to Port Alfred as a family when a business trip to Port Elizabeth took less time than we anticipated. I managed to book two rooms at MyPond on short notice, and I am so pleased we did.
MyPond is an absolutely delightful boutique hotel in the centre of the village, literally on the river's edge. The position is fabulous. Being able to stroll along the river bank after dinner outside was an unexpected treat, and all our meals were enjoyed outside.
The rooms are well laid out and attractively furnished, with bright colours and gorgeous art, which is continued throughout the hotel.
Among the staff are students of the Stenden International campus, who are training in hotel managment. Their passion for hospitality in all its aspects shows. They were friendly, exceptionally helpful and informative, and simply delightful.
The hotel is definitely good value for money and I recommend it highly.
