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

I have found a little gem in Port Alfred. It's right up on the hill with a small pub and wooden deck with a view of the river and sea. Probably the best place in town to quaff a few beers while watching the sun set. The restaurant served up some exquisite food in double time and the accommodation is... More

We stayed for one night in a self-catering cottage which was well equipped clean and with pleasant decor.From my first call to Carla to the time we left we came across very warm,chatty staff which if one was staying longer would add to making your stay very memorable. Vibey restaurant on the property which served good food.Would definitely stay again... More

We booked into the Links for only one night as we were passing through Port Alfred on our way to Knysna. Incredibly good rates for one night in the middle of December, and fantastic service from start to finish. The staff are wonderfully accommodating, the rooms beautifully furnished with stunning finishes and touches, and absolutely spotless, and the upstairs pub... More
