Green Fountain Farm Resort
Ranked #17 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 December 2016 via mobile


Don't believe what you read what is advertised...these self catering units are definitely NOT luxurious or up market. The decor and furniture is outdated and run down.

Expected to book for a minimum of 4 nights, while there are very limited amenities.

See photos:

1. No hot water, geyser burst when we turned it on.
2. Built in braai fell apart in fell on my father, shattering a drinking glass.
3. Hardly any dishwasher left and expected to wash dishes after use else you are billed / fined for not doing so.
4. Kettle doesn't switch off continuously boils and boiling water leaks out of it.
5. Outdated bedding and even older mattress.
6. No tea, coffee and sugar provided.
7. Headboard lights don't work.
8. Rusted closed shower head, can't even have a decent shower.
9. Shower covered in spider webs...wonder when that was last cleaned?
10. Black mildew all over shower and shower ceiling.
11. Light fittings never been cleaned, full of dead insects.
12. Very old and damaged furniture.
13. Inside of wardrobes covered in spider webs.
14. Toilet base is lose from the floor.
15. Wash hand basin tap lose.
16. Shower taps don't show hot and cold.
17. Bottom kitchen door doesn't lock.
18. Remote control broken.
19. Toilet roll holder and towel rail
loose and come off the wall.
20. Bedroom window broken and cannot open.
21. Refer to previous review from 2014 where the dam was dry...it's still dry 2 years later. Definitely no green fountain!

We have stayed at Green Fountain Farm Resort very often and can really recommend it for a peaceful holiday in the countryside. The chalets are big and well equipped, clean and comfortable, the grounds well maintained. The Owners and staff are very nice and extremely helpful. Perfect place, and the rates are soo low, you get much more for your money than elsewhere.

I had a wonderful stay at GFF and the staff was exceptional. Its just outside Port Alfred so it is close enough should you need anything and far enough to get the holiday feeling. The units are well equipped and the very clean. Whenever I needed anything management went out of their way to help me. I would highly recommend staying here on a visit to Port Alfred.

The warmest welcome we've ever received, the lady at the reception was extremely friendly and helpful with regards to places to visit in and around Port Alfred! The accommodation is excellent with lots of space and no noise. Perfect distance from town.

The campsite of campsites. Big individual campground with your own bathroom with fantastic showers. Own ablutions in the same block. There are no individual braaistands to the campsites but go to information and they will happily organize you one for the evening. You must bring your own wood thou.

There is a swimmingpool on the grounds and day visitors are welcome so weekends can be quite busy. All in all the Green Fountain has all you need as a camper, and at R195 per night/stand it is very reasonable indeed. You are about 11Kms from Port Alfred.
