Hi Maggie and Les, We arrived home safely here in Napier early evening yesterday. There were clear signs of storm damage both to the house and road up to our house but otherwise all was well. We had a wonderful break. We were privileged to meet many B&B/Lodge owners on our 3 week trip but we must single out our... More

We booked another B&B very close by but due to various reasons we checked out after only one night. Luckily we found the Gateway guest house. Maggie showed me all rooms available before I agreed to staying I chose the cottage which comprised a huge bedroom, bathroom, lounge and a 2nd room we did not need. A Braai area and... More

We had a good stay although some adjustments could have been made to make our stay more enjoyable. The room wasnt very well lit (the ceiling light did not work but we only discovered this late at night so we did not ask for assistance), the room is rather cluttered and there is no cupboard for clothing just a rail,...

The house wasn't clean, we had to wash everything we wanted to use in the kitchen first, the bathrooms are not hygenic at... More

This guest house is very well situated if you want to go to the Addo Elephant park and it is also only a 20 km away from Port Elizabeth and other attractions. Ver beautiful home, but the best is the friendlyness and the service of the Guest house owner Maggie and her husband Les. They provide you with excellent information... More
