Reception by Laura very good. Rooms neat and clean. Bath condition very bad impression. Impression when approaching room not good. Maintenance of garden lacking. Apart from these general comments, we enjoyed our stay.

Delightful place to stay with our family of 5. Good location round the corner from our relatives. Husband and I had a double room - 3 boys had 2 rooms with a shared lounge/kitchenette next door to us which was just perfect!

Unit 14: Décor and finishes require an upgrade-out of date, Get rid of the "Armish" portrayed towering over the bed; Toilet makes a noise when flushed; review the "egg box" insulation on the bathroom window-unsightly; Drinking plastic water bottle in fridge looked old and had an odd smell when opened; No satelite TV; Ill fitting window blinds make a noise...

Very pleasant surprise in coastal town. Great menu, superb service and value for money. Not to be missed. Unique decor with variety of interesting items on menu and staff very friendly and service orientated. Didn't mind leaving a sizable tip.

A nice, quaint venue which is tidy and most importantly, clean. The rooms are a little dark but well appointed. A very nice restaurant and pub sporting a balcony overlooking Port Alfred. A very relaxed environment and the beers are cheap!

On the plus side, like others, we found the service very good indeed - not only competent, but enthusiastic, and they went to extra lengths to make us feel special during our one night stay. The inhouse restaurant had an extensive menu for dinner, and a nice, inviting African decor. On balance, however, the negative outweighed the positive for us.... More

Whenever I plan on visiting Port Alfred the first place I call, to make a booking, is the Links Coastal Inn. On this occasion I took my mother along with me. We were accommodated in one of the self-catering inter-leading family rooms that the Links has on offer. My stays at the hotel are always immensely enjoyable, I cannot recommend... More

Our BMW Bike tour group stopped here for a night. Riding into Port Alfred was a nice surprise; east coast USA coastal type town. Link's was a perfect stop for us, after riding all day. We lucked out and were given the middle cottage in the back, which had a little kitchen, dining area, sitting area, nice size queen bed... More

Dear Karla, Cameron and team - thanks for helping me give my parents a surprise Anniversary dinner on the weekend. They had a great meal, enjoyed wonderful service, and the extra effort you made to transcribe my message to them and faciliate my paying for the dinner remotely was greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing you all next time... More
