The Guest house maintains the flavor of Africa with Rondawal style units; well appointed and comfortable. The terraced grounds and gardens are adorned with a wide variety of flowering plants. The parking is very limited. There are lots of short flights of stairs from the main level if you are in one of the lower units. Sue and her staff... More

We passed 2 nights in the guesthouse. We came as guests and left as friends. The stay there is in such a warm and nice atmosphere that we can not imagine that there is a better place in East London to sleep. We slept in the French room with a phantastic view and a splendid decoration.

We spent 3 fantastic nights at the B+B. Thanks to Tracey and the staff who made us feel very welcome. The day started off with a delicious breakfast sitting on a beautiful terrace. The room was very stylish. We enjoyed our sundowner on the balcony. Even our daughter had found a little friend, Bella the dog!

Not only an exquisite setting with beautiful views but top service as well. We would most certainly recommend The Loerie Hide to anyone passing through E.L or perhaps even a weekend away for a ''home away from home'' experience. The French room was a magical experience for my fiance and I. A big THANK YOU to Sue and her team... More

We visited The Loerie Hide B&B for two nights, so that we could watch the Windies v. Proteas at Buffalo Park. Sue, Tracy and Monica make up a team that are friendly and professional, and this bed and breakfast is run like clockwork; there is nothing that is too much bother for them. We stayed in the Versailles Room, which... More

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
