5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

The Lookout is aptly named as it provides sweeping views over the Port Alfred marina development to the ocean beyond. It's also very convenient for the town centre and nearby restaurants, shopping mall, golf course, etc. This attractive property is very well maintained inside and out and we enjoyed a most comfortable 3 night stay. We particularly appreciated the high standard of cleanliness, the well equipped kitchenette and thoughtful little touches. Louise was most friendly and welcoming and we would have no hesitation in recommending The Lookout to anyone seeking high quality, good value accommodation in the area.

We loved staying here, it was so quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very spacious and clean with all the needed amenities.
Everyone there are very friendly and welcoming, we felt right at home!
The breakfast was a generous portion and delicious!
Our favourite part was the view! Waking up to see the ocean and those huge waves...just Amazing!
Will definitely come back here.

This B&B was wonderful. Louise was very gracious and accommodating to us. Her establishment is located where you can look out over the town and surrounding area. Only minus is that the bed was rather hard for my bones.
Would recommend this B&B to anyone going to this area.

We found this by driving past it, and we were lucky we did. We had a very spacious room and very clean. There was a pool for the guests which we used and got to know other people staying there. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much to ask for. And in the morning we were surprised with the standard of breakfast. It was delicious and plentiful. We had our own hamper of cereals, juice, pastries and I even had a kipper to start my day. I would recommend and return.

What a lovely clean place to stay. Will recommend it to anybody wanting a quiet break yet convenient for the beach, the river and restaurants. Breakfast was served in your room and it was gorgeous!! We'll definitely come back again one day.
