Definitely going back. Breakfast was great! Room was clean, and simply stylish. Service was the best out of the entire holiday! Location was central and easy to find. Easy room access: not invasive from other guests

After a very warm welcome, you can sit on your terrace and enjoy the view. The room is big en al comfort is there. The breakfast is very nice and can be served on your own terrace. Perfect strat of the day.

We had a superb stay at Lookout - Louise, Alan and her staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. From setting up a cot for our toddler to drying our beach towels, nothing was too much trouble. The room was immaculate and very comfortable, perfect for our week at the beach. Nothing like enjoying relaxing... More

A return visitor to the Lookout Guest House - this visit again confirmed that this is one of the best guest houses in Port Alfred. Welcoming hosts, clean and comfy accommodation, and a beautiful view over the marina. A really relaxed stay which is just what we needed. Location is great and easy access to the beaches and surrounding attractions.

Except for the double bed being too small, everything was excellent. Friendly staff and well trained. The daily change of towels was wonderful. Even the bedding got changed twice in our 7 day stay. The breakfast was super !! We are going back soon to visit.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry you found the bed too small - it is a queen bed and all our other beds are twin/king beds - just for future reference. All the best for Christmas and 2015. More
