Great accommodation, good security, very nice breakfast. We spent 7 days at The Loerie Hide and enjoyed our stay so much we returned for a further 5 days. Sue, Tracy, Monica and Tulisa made us very welcome, were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and furnished in an African style, reminiscent of "Out of Africa". Our 3 adult... More

Loved everything about staying at this beautiful and quaint b&b in East London. Nestled among the trees and birdsong of the area, within a quiet neighborhood, we were very comfortable staying in the contemporary stone room. The owner and her staff makes everybody feel very welcome. The morning breakfasts outside on the deck are invigorating to the senses... and help... More

The Loerie Hide is in a beautiful location... aptly named it is filled with birdsong and feels like you're tucked away amongst the trees... I stayed in the Rondavel in the corner of the property below the main house... very private and cosy with a bird theme... I was very comfortable... The welcome was great (including from the resident dog)...... More

My wife and I stayed here a couple weeks ago for 5 nights... and all we can say is AMAZING. We loved every moment of our stay. We were situated in the Contemporary Stone Room and the bed was extremely comfortable and the decor was luxurious... we felt as though we were staying at a 5-star hotel, with the quaintness... More

We LOVED this gem in East London. The service from Sue and Monica was excellent! It was a great escape surrounded by lush vegetation with a great view. The room was tastefully decorated with a big bathroom, very clean as well. My partner and I loved the king sized comfortable bed. Sue is a great host, paying attention to our... More

Really nice place to stay! Beautiful garden! Breakfast on the balcony was also nice. We've got some great tips where to go and which places to visit and eat, from the owner Sue. We only stayed here for one night in the seperate cabin in the garden.

This was an overnight stop on a long trip from Western Cape to Natal. We received a very warm welcome and great advice on finding somewhere to have dinner. We stayed in the very clean and comfortable Colonial Room. The balcony overlooking the pool was really special. We would have liked to have stayed a little longer. Thanks to Sue... More

This is the second time we have had the pleasure of staying in Loerie Hide, and we have found it a genuinely wonderful experience. On the first occasion my husband & I spent a romantic weekend in the bungalow, it was fresh & invigoratingly, and in touch with the lush wonder of the nature of the Eastern Cape - the... More

Had booked to stay 2 nights/weekend in the Colonial room. Arrived just as a wedding party were departing for the ceremony but welcomed by Tracy (Sue apparently away) and taken to our room. It had been wet weather for a couple of days and the paths were rather slippery. However we were helped with our luggage. The room/bathroom were amass... More

What a find, our room overlooked a wooded garden, which, unfortunately we did not have time to explore. We had a very comfortable room, very clean with a well equipped bathroom. An excellent breakfast was served on the terrace where we conversed with a couple of very interesting guests before being joined by Sue, a charming hostess. We thoroughly recommend... More
