We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Halyards. staff were attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. view is lovely from the rooms and dining area. a bit of tlc on the buildings would go a long way for first impressions.

I really enjoyed my stay at the halyards hotel and wish I could stay for longer. I couldn't enjoy your meals and Spa because I had to play golf very early in the morning. I will, definitely, come back and enjoy the facility even more with family. Keep up the good work.

Slightly neglected, poorly maintained, worn linen, worn carpets. Noisy at night unless you are at the far end (away from the bar). Restaurant service was ok. Reasonable value for money as the accommodation cost was not high.

I enjoyed the special offer weekend, but the hotel could consider better selection of meals for vegetarians. The room is very comfortable, with excellent views. My only complaint was that staff had to be reminded to deliver the towels. Everyone was there to help and staff were very polite.

Stayed at the Halyards for 2 nights. Beds were 2 single beds instead of a double or queen. Bed linen was old and tatty. It was so discoloured l wasnt sure if it was dirty or old. Some of the linen was torn. The room however was spacious. Television is extremely poor. Reported this and nothing was done about it.... More

Really had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bonus was the spa voucher which I thoroughly enjoyed. View from room is excellent. Food cannot be faulted. All over experience was excellent.

We decided to celebrate our parents 46th wedding anniversary at the hotel, we were warmly welcomed, had awesome food and good service. Situated in a lovely area and close to some of the retail shops. Will definitely recommend it although it needs a little TLC.

we found the place to be overall a great hotel. Friendly staff with an amazing view of the marina. the food is great and I would recommend eating at the hotel itself. there is not much to do in the port Alfred area so we headed out to addo for the Saturday then retunred to the hotel in the evening.
