Nice looking place , but the Lady of the manor made us feel like we were visiting a posh old aunty who you feel didn't like little children even though we are 40 year olds. So would say not for us , but for a more older group 60+.

Stayed one night - Agree with previous reviewers, you would be hard-pressed to find a similar guest house with such a high standard of service and room quality. Wendy made our stay very easy and recommended a first clas restaurant to have dinner. Excellent breakfast and impossible to find a single fault - Highly recommended.

This is probably the poshest guest house we've ever stayed in. Posh but not intimidating. So comfortable, cosy, beautiful decor and furnishings, lovely bathroom. We had the Executive King Room - a lovely large, light, airy space with a really comfortable bed and fabulous leather armchair and stool for my husband to relax in. We had the healthy option breakfast... More

Manor 38 was our first b&b we have ever stayed at and it did not disappoint. Wendy made dinner recommendations in advance of us showing up and even booked a dinner at Ginger for us...apparently everybody we've met loves that place. The house has an amazing layout with huge rooms. We stayed in room 1 which even had a shower... More

Our first night of a 14 night trip to SA, and we were not disappointed. Did not really understand the guest house concept, which has slightly different connotations in UK, so it was a relief that the reviews I had read here were accurate. The room was very large and very well furnished with a very large bathroom etc. Breakfast... More

I stayed for 5 days at Manor 38. It would not be a exaggeration to say that this is the best guest house in Port Elizabeth. Intimate atmosphere,clean rooms,friendly staff and plentiful breakfast. The only con I could find is that the wifi was not free as it should be.Highly recommended...

My wife and I stayed here for one night before starting a drive along the garden route to Cape Town and were thoroughly impressed. Our room was large, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The jacuzzi bath, fabulous turn down service and yummy breakfast were more reflective of a 5* hotel than a guest house. Overall: Great value... More

We stayed overnight before flying out the next day. Manor 38 is a beautiful place to stay. The room was unusually elegant, breakfast was wonderful. Note that its not cheap.

This guest house caters for the business person as well as the traveller. Even though they don't provide dinner, their breakfast options are wide and varied and would suit most health-conscious people. The rooms are spacious and I was fortunate one of the rooms facing the pool area which gave you a sense of privacy away from the main guest... More
