Heard about the place from a friend in Port Alfred. Unexpectedly warm and friendly owner with very comfortable accommodation and kitchen with extras in it. Breakfast was served in the unit and was presented in such a pleasant way. Homestyle with a lot of love and care...

My partner and I had the best stay ever. It was our first anniversary without the kids around and we couldn't have picked a better place. Louis is amazing and so is her staff. A definite 5 Star Place!

The Lookout is a well run, well managed establishment with a huge and tasteful emphasis on attention to detail. The rooms are warm and cozy on the colder days and bright and fresh on the warmer days. The breakfast was suburb and the view breathtaking. I have nothing negative to say about The Lookout except that I wish I had... More

Immaculate rooms, attention to detail and wonderful service by the owner Louise. Nothing was too much for Louise to make our overnight stay comfortable and relaxed. Louise is a "hands on" owner and host who goes the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay. Thanks for the kipper and eggs I requested - it was delicious! I would not think... More

We have traveled the world and this is one of the best. Spotlessly clean,well presented and the views are stunning. Louise is a lovely person who makes you feel so welcome and the breakfast delivered to your unit each morning is delicious. We will definitely be going back.

What a nice experience did we have here! After a very warm welcome we were shown to our room which was huge! Great views over the village and the sea, even from our bed. Car could be parked right outside of our room. Breakfast was served in the room and was perfect! I could really only find one downside and... More

Thank you for the positive review - we enjoyed meeting and having you to stay although it was only one night.. I am sorry you must have misunderstood me about the WiFi. We offer a complimentary voucher usually 100 megabytes or more for longer stays. Regards to you both. Louise. More

It was such a special experience. The hosts were very friendly. The location is just right. The breakfast was special and always on time. The parking is secure. Morning runs to the sea side were exquisite. I will surely return to The Lookout.

From the moment you greet her, the breakfasts she prepares and brings to your room (yes!), those little surprises you find, to the time that you depart you will find that Louise is just overflowing with affection. My wife & I occupied room number 1 and what a pleasant stay we had. Spacious and equiped with everyting you need. If... More
