This charming guesthouse made our visit to Port Elizabeth extra special. Not only was the room beautifully appointed and comfortable but it was a pleasure to have air-conditioning on such a hot day. Our dinner was superb, great choice of dishes and the tasting was excellent which went hand in hand with the service - the staff must be recommended.... More

It may be one of the most expensive properties in PE but it is worth every cent! If you like a more intimate property you can't go wrong. As great as the property is, most notable is their 5 star service. Tiffany was a great hostess who's concern and care for her guests was so nurturing. Don't miss their tasting... More

We stayed 4 nights having booked on Tripadvisor recommendations. The hotel is lovely in a quiet location and the facilities are good. Our room was spacious, filled with antique furniture and we had a private balcony. The food was very good - both breakfast and dinner. A small gripe - the menu did not change during our stay so became... More

Stayed for one night in this charming old colonial house at the beginning of our holiday. From its beautiful and comfortable rooms, to the lovely little pool and the quiet gardens it was an unexpected delight. The entire staff were friendly, pleasant and made us feel very welcome. The food was the biggest surprise. We had the tasting menu (delicious... More

Stayed two nights at Hacklewood in January 2016 visiting distant relatives in the area. If you're looking for a small, elegant, country house style hotel in a quiet area, couldn't recommend more highly. Most tastefully decorated, great food and great staff.

Everything at Hacklewood Hill exceeded our expectations. There can't be hardly any other places anywhere with as much Victorian character and style as what we experienced. The service and room were just incredible. The restaurant said it was a hidden secret and it was the best food and service possible. I can't say enough great things about the inn.

Our stay was last minute, but the service was impeccable, from the time we enquired until we left. The crisp cotton sheets on the comfy king size bed were so comfy and the air-con a welcome reprieve from the heat. We ate in, and the food was absolutely superb. By far the best we have experienced anywhere in Port Elizabeth.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. The staff were very kind, helpful and friendly. It is a typical B&B, but although old it is well maintained with old fashioned features - like the lighting switches and the keys. The showers are AWESOME - huge pressure. Breakfast was very good with several choices and a limited, but perfectly fine,... More
