We took family to the Sunday Buffet, it is great value for money and pensioners get a special rate. The service friendly. The selection is so wide it caters for everyones taste, which it did in our case. The view from the restaurant was calming as you enjoyed the marina.

Unfortunately the setting and views are virtually all this hotel has going for it. Lack of maintenance and upkeep have taken its toll on the rooms. Public rooms are in better condition but staff, although very friendly, clearly lack training in the most basic areas (ie. Table setting!) Not sure what management there is but we did not see any...

I stayed at Halyards over a year back, as part of week-long workshop. The hotel has some things going for it: it's relatively cheap; the breakfast and lunches are very nice (a new chef had just arrived at the time) and the location on the Kowie River is great. However, the room I was in had no view at all... More

I must say this hotel is old but is clean and great being on the canal, the view from our balcony, and also the restaurant was fantastic. My husband and I came for only two days to relax we enjoyed ourselves and treated ourselves to have a foot massage at the hotel spa, the staff very very nice recommend this... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but joined one of their river/canal cruises. The staff were extremely accommodating (re-arranging initial cruise after some bad weather). A big hat tip to Ronnie at the front desk for impeccable service. Thank you!

We recently spent a few nights in Port Alfred, at the Halyards Hotel, the Hotel is Beautifully situated on the Marina, service was good, the rooms very spacious and neat, but overall we did think the place could do with a bit of fixing up.(the chairs on our tiny patio were really filthy & falling apart & Shower could do...

Our booking agent made a mess of our booking, but the management of Halyards went the extra mile to help us. Very nice hotel with good service and excellent setting. Areas near the kitchen is a bit noisy at night, but the rooms are spacious with a beautiful view.

WE didn't stay here but we visited twice for dinner and drinks. It's a relaxed, friendly hotel with a 'sports' bar and pool deck and the bar snacks are good value. It's not five star but, with four kids in tow who wanted to swim and relax, we found it perfect for our needs. The buffet dinner was excellent at... More

We spent 3 nights at Halyards. We loved the location at the marina. This is a 3 star hotel but a very good 3 star. You have aircon and a fair selection of TV channels. Breakfast buffet is above average. Dinner is also good. Rooms are clean. If you are gonna have laundry done there, beware it is expensive. We... More

We overnighted there in the height of the holiday season but the hard working staff still were able to be friendly and helpful. The room could do with a facelift but we were very happy with what we got, considering the price. If pressed, I would say they need to replace the wine/beverage cooler with a fridge and provide an...
