A wonderful Guesthouse in a lovely, quaint seaside town. The room we were in was perfect, with two comfortable beds and a separate bedroom; it was more like a guest cottage - it was spacious, clean and very well furnished. The service was also incredible: Louise is a great hostess and she and her staff make you feel right at home. I would be hard-pressed to stay anywhere else in Port Alfred, especially at the price.

This venue has the best view ever! Louise is always friendly and available to assist. We find the rooms very comfortable with all the necessary facilities for self catering. We have returned 3 times and find Unit 2 the best.

We had a very pleasant sleepover at "The Lookout". The accommodation was type of a flatlet and had everything. It is the perfect place if you want to stay a couple of days and cater self.
Breakfast were brought to us from I think the main house and very nice. Only problem was that we got our bread basket (you then make your own toast) without any butter/margarine. We couldnt asked for it because by then the person who brought it dissapeared and we didnt know where to go to ask. Otherwise, no complaints and the view is really stunning.

Thank you for taking the trouble write a review. Your comments were very helpful - I have since insisted on a check list before baskets are delivered - hopefully no-one will be without butter for their toast again!
