My husband and I have stayed at Manor 38 twice, and we have been delighted by the comfortable accommodations, friendly hosts (and dogs!), beautiful decor, and excellent breakfasts on both occasions. We look forward to returning!

Thanks so much for your lovely review and it was really great of you to come back and stay with us. Pity you arrived so late on your first night, but at least you made up with it the next day by visiting the SPA which would have made up for lost time !!! It was so sweet of you... More

I really had a good stay. The service was excellent and the room was 1 of the best in a long time. Would definitely go visit again! The people were super friendly and helpful. Even woke up at 5h30 to give me breakfast.

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.
