A Wonderful Business Break and Workshop Experience on the Kowie River

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Jun 2024
We hosted a social media workshop at this venue for 15 people. Although a small group - we were treated like Kings and Queens!
Excellent service ethic.
Excellent food - my goodness - excellent food!
Friendly, kind and understanding.
The views are otherworldly! So beautiful.
The team went out of their way to ensure we had an excellent experience - highly recommended.

Lovely hotel in a very safe town and area. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was incredible and adjacent to the river. Staff were excellent, arranged laundry for us, great breakfast, and very personable. Excellent river side walk upstream which was a nice way to wind down after dinner. The area around had some fabulous walks especially Kenton on Sea and the surreal Three Sisters at Riet River, one of the best beach walks I've ever done. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room tip: Go to Riet River and walk to the three sisters...amazing beach walk and completely safe

My Pond is the place to stay when in Port Alfred. The convenience of its locality to all essential services like banks and restaurants is so ideal. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family who maybe traveling in that direction.

Outstanding for a training hotel. Staff very accommodating and helpful. Food and atmosphere excellent. Beer cold and beer glasses clean. Venue nice and central. Ideal for a short stay or golfing tour.

They offer terrible food . They need new chefs who knows how to cook. Imagine paying so much money but cannot eat proper food. Everything is fine but please do something with those chefs they are not doing well
