My husband and I received royal treatment at Manor 38. The service is magnificent and the hostess was friendly and went out of her way to make our stay the best stay ever. We would like to thank Manor 38 for their warm welcomes and outstanding services. You really made our stay amazing and a weekend to remember.

Awesome stay every time! The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very beautiful. I love finding my chocolate next to my bed every night without fail. Wendy & Chris are friendly people and they treat you like an individual. The breakfasts at Manor 38 are to die for, it's also the best part of my stay!

Professional staff, has everything that you need to conduct your business and luxury rooms to have a good, quiet rest. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting to go to Port Elizabeth. An early morning run along the beachfront is a "must do"!

It was above expectations when staying at many guesthouses before. It was a real eye opener to see hosts attending to detail and making my stay a very pleasant experience. It is safe and very close to shops the beach.
