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.

My Pond Boutique Hotel on the Kowie River in Port Alfred is great value for money. The view of the river from our room and the great breakfast on the river bank as well as excellent service will make sure that this hotel sees us again.

Wow, what value for money. The staff were fantastic, facilities were brilliant, food was excellent. I will most certainly stay again! The staff were always smiling and engaging, and always looking to help and make your stay perfect. Thank you so much for such exceptional service.

We visited Port Alfred to watch the Boat Race regatta. It's a charming small coastal town and My Pond is situated in the most perfect position right on the river. The setting is idyllic and the hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We ate breakfast each day outside at the river, and enjoyed the excellent hospitality. The bedrooms are clean and modern - I recommend a room inside the hotel and not on the balcony as the window blinds allowed light in which wasn't ideal when I woke up in the middle of the night. We were quickly offered a new room when i complained the next day and our bags were moved by the time we returned. The little town and many good restaurants are within walking distance, and we took part in the inaugural 5km park run which is lovely and flat! We really enjoyed the warm hospitality of the My Pond staff, and I can highly recommend the delicious a la carte breakfast.
