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.

We had again a very warm and wonderful stay in Port Elizabeth with Wendy & Chris. Hospitality and service was once more outstanding and the team did everything that we felt at home. The Summerstrand location is quite near to awesome beach settings and P.E. is a good starting point to go for a Game Reserve which are only a... More

I had reason to be in PE on business for three weeks, and I had the pleasure of staying here. It is a really lovely place to stay with both Wendy and Chris being extremely hospitable and accommodating hosts. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. It is incredibly quiet, clean and comfortable, and this combined with the hospitality... More
