I have a very pleasant stay at Bramlyn Bnb. The Rooms were very clean and the comfort in the room on the second floor was more than expected. Tanya really made us feel like we were at a home away from home. Breakfast was great, The property is very clean and well decorated. I would recommend this establishment to all... More

My partner and I had wonderful time at Bramlyn and its an experience we will never forget. We have been booking places in East London since 2011 and there was a place which was our number one before 31/12/14 but Bramlyn is now our new number one. The welcome, the friendliness from Tania and her willingness to chat with us... More

We had a great stay, looking forward to our next visit. The room was clean and nicely set up. its a perfect place to getaway, its central and also close to the beach. If you dont feel like going outdoors, the rooms are cosy enough with DSTV :)

It felt like home away from home, room was clean and had all the little extras that made it feel like home and I loved the visits from the rescued cats. Will definitely stay here if I pass through again.

I booked and paid for this B&B on March 20th for the nights of the 29-30th April. We went on a Hotel to Hotel beach walk starting in the Transkei. We left our car at our finish point being Crawford's and took a transfer to our starting point being Wavecrest in the Transkei. Due to inclement weather our walk was... More

Wendy booked our B&B for 2 nights and was sent our terms and conditions when making the booking and prior to paying . We did not just attach them in the hope that she would read them - in the email we emphatically requested that she familiarize herself with our terms so that there will be no misunderstanding in regards...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and most impressed by the "little extras" provided for our comfort, e.g. tissues, medical kit, fresh milk. Extremely comfortable and friendly. Just ask for whatever you need and they wil provide if possible.

Absolutely poor Hosts who was very unwelcoming and rude the worst ever experience as we travel often, she needs help on how to receive her guests and see them off. It seemed as if guests are not important once booking and payment is made. Will never refer anyone. Bad, Bad, Bad experience as that was our last of four venues... More

We wanted a place to stay to break our journey and were really pleased with Bramlyn. Spotless and comfortable room and our host was outstanding. Would recommend and certainly stay there again. Thanks for a great stay.

Excellent, neat and clean accommodation. Tanya and her team were very accommodating and we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be staying here again upon our next visit to East London. A great venue for a family with kids.
