I cannot fault Quarry Lake Inn on anything. As it was my first time in East London, the staff there made it super easy for me to find my way around the area. The surroundings are tranquil and serene. The staff are very accommodating and super friendly. I would gladly recommend this venue to all of my friends, colleagues and... More

This is a nice place for a stopover in East London. The room was fine, had everything we needed. Also the information in the folder on our room was great, since we wanted to order something delivered to our room. The only thing we missed was the warm welcome we were getting used to in South Africa. We felt like... More

The location relative to the venue for my meetings was good and the room and sevice excellent. There was load shedding during my stay and the generator kicked in within a minute, so that is not a problem!

The host at this establishment was very inhospitable, not providing a welcoming environment. The TV channel options, including the reception was poor. The conference facilities is too close to the kitchen/dining area. The breakfast options was very limiting, and not catering for our diverse nations.

Stayed at the Quarry the weekend of the 17th and had a very nice stay. The staff go out of there way to make your stay pleasent. There is a lot of bird life in the water of the old quarry. The staff that do the breakfast or on the ball and the selections are very good.

I must say I was really impressed when I arrived at this B&B Hotel. The grounds are superb with a beautiful location around a lake quarry. The room was large and comfortable and the bed very comfortable. Things began to be less than perfect when I turned on the television and the first screen was for a channel that hadn't... More

The guest house offers friendly, efficient service and a spacious, comfortable room. Good breakfast. It is consistently professional. The breakfast is good. We were recommended a local restaurant for dinner and it was very good too.
