“Perfect short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Really helpful and friendly manager/owner - the hotel was in the perfect location for me as I was in PE to watch Pakistan play South Africa in the cricket. Great restaurants literally round the corner.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

In 2012 we spent 3 nights at Guesthouse on Irvine and came away without any complaints. So when we needed accommodation for one night this week we did not hesitate to book again in a perfect location in Richmond Hill neighborhood. There is probably not a better location from which to walk to the buzz hub of Richmond Hill than 40 Irvine!!! Once again we enjoyed our stay and came away without any complaints. Well done, Tanya, on keeping the standard up and offering comfortable accommodation in a great location. We'll be back!

At the very last minute due to unscheduled planning we were made to feel welcome and arrived to a super room and had a restful night. Always a pleasure to enjoy such a lovely oasis in PE when traveling.

I often use Guest House on Irvine when on business in Port Elizabeth.
I do not use any of their services except the use of the room, so have not rated service.
The rooms are small but comfortable and reflect the very reasonable rate per night charged. The beds are very comfortable, and the owner is friendly.
Parking is one the street, and so is not secure, but I have not experienced any problems.
There is an excellent selection of restaurants within 100 metres of the establishment and that is a big plus for the location.
I have no hesitation in reccomending this establishment for business travel.

We stayed one night at this guest house. The situation is great for eating out as it is within walking distance of some very trendy little cafes and restaurants.
The guesthouse is beautifully decorated but the rooms are quite cramped, and there are no views whatsoever, infact our bedroom window had a large poster of the sea behind it.
The proprietor was very helpful and professional, but if she offers you a map showing a short cut to the airport and you happen to have satnav - stick to the satnav!!
Overall experience pleasant - would be good place to stay for business travellers too.

Make sure you stay in this wonderful and clean accommodation in the heart of PE. Good value for money/ brilliant breakfast served by the lady owner Tanya. She also dropped us off at the airport to pick up our car. Good value for money with really nice bathroom and bedroom. This is also one of the places you can pick up if traveling via BazBus
