I enjoyed the spacious, private room and private garden. Thank you for a lovely stay and a quiet night's rest - home away from home with little extra's you wouldn't normally get in a hotel. Thank you to Candice and her team!

We visited for one night in Sept, we were immediately made to feel welcome on arrival, the room was excellent quality and very clean. The wifi was fantastic. Breakfast was very welcoming and off a high standard. Would highly recommend if you stay in Port Elizabeth.

She remembers that I drink decaf coffee and without... More
