“Great stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This was the perfect end to our trip on the garden route- conveniently located next to the airport (and while you can hear the planes taking off nearby we didn't hear a thing from 10pm-6am). The room was adorable and had just the right amenities (though no heat for chilly nights).

The service was perfect and breakfast was tastily served in a heated tented area. The husband & wife team were super friendly and helpful

iJR117,
Thanks for choosing to stay with us at Treetops and so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that you did not ask about the heater because every room has one and some of them are wall heaters which you probably were not aware of. We will ensure that our guests are aware of the heaters going forward. Thanks for taking the time to doing a review it allows us to improve and to maintain our high standards. Glad you enjoyed visiting our beautiful country.
Best wishes

We have been there three weeks ago, august 2012, for one night and everything was perfect.

We arrived from Johannesburg very late and they picked up us from the airport, the next morning they drove us back there to take to the rental car and always for free.

The room was big, warm, clean and very comfortable although it was raining and cold outside.

We had no time for breakfast but it also offered it at a reasonable price.

We are sure we will repeat in Treetops if we have to return to Port Elizabeth someday.

We spent just a night at Treetops, and we found it perfect. Very good value for money and excellent service. Room was large and comfortable and staff very friendly. Airport is just 10 minutes away...Glad we found it!

This guest house is in an ideal location for the airport. Our hosts were very helpful, sorting out various excursions on our behalf and nothing was too much trouble for them. We dined in the evening twice at the guest hosue and the food was simply wonderful. A lovely atmosphere dining outside by the fire.

Looking forward to visiting Treetops again!

We stayed here for a quick sleep, as we have to catch a very early flight at the Port Elizabeth airport. The airport is literally an one-minute drive with a car. Owner is very friendly. The room is good and quite big. Although we had a good sleep, we thought the walls of the rooms were thin.

We picked Treetops because we thought the pics looked intriguing and lovely. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the real thing didn't let us down. Our hosts were friendly and gave us great advice for places to eat, etc. The room was modern, spotlessly clean and everything very comfortable. There was a full kitchen for guests to use and the pool, Bra-ii and covered dining area was fantastic. We highly recommend this place and look forward to visiting again someday.

Room Tip: We were in the room second from the end, one of the newer rooms and it had a lovely little seating a...

You cannot beat the excellent service at Treetops. We were only staying in PE for a day and didn't have a car. Stephen picked us up when we arrived by bus late at night and then drove us to the mall the next day when it was pouring with rain and we were basically stranded at the hotel. The breakfast was excellent, room very comfortable and with a couple of decent restaurants within a few minutes walk this was the perfect place for us to stay. The airport is only 10 minutes away and Treetops also offers free airport transfers. We had a wonderful time thanks to Stephen and Elizabeth, they were lovely and really went above and beyond what we were expecting to make our stay such a pleasure.

Michael L, Thank you for your response and positive comments. Valid comment regarding the bathroom wall not reaching the ceiling but it is something that we would like to update in the near future. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope one day to have you back.
Travel safely
