A small guest house with a great view over the town. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and was served outside each morning. The room was very spacious with a settee and a dining table. Well recommended.

Everything perfect. Really nice host family. Breakfast is served in a basket right in front of your room. We only stayed one night, but we were feeling ourselves comfortable immediately. I can only recommend the Lookout Guest House

We stayed here for just one night but hope to be back in the future! We booked here very late for the season and were extremely lucky that they'd had a cancellation and could accommodate our family of 4. Louise is extremely kind and helpful, and goes out of her way to ensure that you are comfortable and have everything... More

Stunning room, amazing food for breakfast! You have to try the vanilla yogurt! Fantastic people. Bed provides nothing short of a lights out night of sleep. Clean facilities.Kitchen well equipped. Feels like home away from home.

Thank you Louise and staff for the warm hospitality and superb service. The breakfast was well prepared and delicious. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated and maintained. There's a lovely view of PA and it's located in a serene and safe neighborhood.

Such attention to little details - a real gem, and the views were stunning. Comfortable, clean and stylish - just wish we could have extended our stay. Everything one could ask for was available - really a place to recommend

From the minute we arrived what a friendly welcome we received. The view over Port Alfred breath-taking. The room we stayed in was amaze balls. The attention to detail better than 5 star hotels. From the lavender petals on the toilet paper to the white line. I was so amazed at the deco just the right amount not cluttered clean... More

I'm a regular visitor to Port Alfred and have stayed at many different places. The Lookout is one of my favourites. The friendliness of the owners is what will bring people back to these stunning suites ...
