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.

Beautifully located on the Kowie River - this Hotel should be a sure fire success. However, time has taken its toll and the generously proportioned, dark rooms are in dire need of updating. Service was well meaning, but very amateur. There are more comfortable and modern places to stay in Port Alfred which have easy access to beautiful views -... More

Well positioned Hotel on the Kowie River that is not living up to its true potential. My stay was " out of season" and the standard of service and attention received clearly reflected this. Will however, still recommend a stay at the Halyards Hotel and will myself return.

This hotel does not deserve a 3 star rating. Reception staff are poorly trained, and management does not seem to exist.

We spent one night at the Halyards Hotel. The staff were very pleasant and the rooms were large and comfortable. Our only complaint was the bathroom. This was extremely small and the shower difficult to access. It needs a bit of TLC

Found this hotel online. Needed somewhere to stay en route to Grahamstown from Jeffreys Bay. Central reservations very efficient and the 2 rooms were ready when I arrived at 19h00. Luxury marina facing suites were spacious and clean. Rates out of season very reasonable. The tap water is not drinkable but a fresh jug is provided. Dinner in the bar... More

Great service. Lovely location in Port Alfred with friendly and helpful staff. Food at the bar and restaurant was good and there were loads of family activities to get involved in and explore the area.

It was a great getaway, the staff were a nice bunch of people, not nosey and the room was well cleaned. The set up in the room upon arrival was excellent, beautiful actually but they forgot to arrange our parting gift. We were meant to take it with when checking out but the manager had forgotten to leave at the... More
