What a wonderful experience staying in this upmarket, luxury B&B. I felt like royalty. It is a little bit of paradise. The garden is lush and the rooms are spectacular, furnished with exquisite pieces and luxurious bedding. Sitting out on the deck having breakfast I could hear the Loerie call. The owner is a serene and gracious hostess. The pictures... More

A well kept B&B and the room was large and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Overall a good experience. I would definitely recommend this B&B to travellers in East London.

I stayed in Loerie Hide's Rondavel while attending a conference. Although I arrived after dark I could already tell I would be in for a spectacular view the next morning. And I was not disappointed. The Rondavel is confortable and private, and even boasts a private, raised deck. Breakfast was delicious and both the staff and owner, Sue, attentive and... More

We stayed here for a night as we needed an early start in EL the following day. We arrived late evening and our host was more than happy to show us to our room down the numerous steps in the dark. We stayed in the african room which was a great size but as we stayed in June it was... More

Lush, green fauna. Tropical bird sounds. Fresh, natural smells. And that's all experienced from INSIDE the rooms! Susie Rainer, Monica and the rest of the LH team is genuinely dedicated to providing personal care and attention to guests. Nothing is too much of an effort to them. I felt treated, revived and "special" again after my stay at Loerie Hide.... More

Be prepared for stairs, and lots of them. The parking is tight and the brick stairs a plentiful but it all adds to the character and ambiance of this place. There is work to be done here but you'll love the character here, it's like staying in a Roundavel with the thatched roof and jungle just outside your door. Love... More

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!
