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.

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.

Loved this property. The host was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was beautifully served in our room. We would have liked to stay longer than the one night and would have no hesitation in recommending the Lookout to friends and family.

Nothing to fault this stay, wonderful accomodation, delicious breakfast and stunning views! The owners hospitality and their attention to detail was superb. Close to town and amenities but felt very private.

I stayed just the one night but everything was just right. From the friendly confirmation of my reservation, to the arrangement for a late check in. The self catering room I had has a perfect layout and is ideal for a long stay. I highly recommend The Lookout Guest House

Would not hesitate to recommend this lovely Guest House. Clean, spacious and brilliant breakfast service. Our host Louise was delightful and very helpful. This is the second year we have used The Lookout and will expect to use it again next year.

The Lookout is difficult to beat for location, service and value It ticks all the boxes for a relaxed enjoyable visit to a very attractive part of the world. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Port Alfred.
