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.

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 had a confirmed reservation, and when checking in were told that the suite we had booked was blocked, and was not available. "Management" was called and we waited for more than 20 minutes whilst he checked what the... More

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
