We travel extensively internationally. We do not expect to receive such rude, unhelpful service from guest house management in this day and age. Altogether not a happy experience. Amenities basic, attitude of managerial staff -poor. Management need to improve on their interpersonal skills and customer care.

Sitting outside on the door sill of your actual room and SMOKING is not allowed. The cigarette smoke blows into the room.

This year we decided to choose Port Elizabeth as our holiday destination. Although we were a bit wary because of how cheap this Guesthouse was compared to others we ended up taking a chance and booked with them anyway. Well, it turned out to have been the best decision we could have made. Everything looks exactly the way this place... More

Stayed at this establishment for 1 night. On arrival at our room, room number 2, was clean.... however a used bar of soap greeted me at the basin in the bathroom and a mouldy shower that I really did not want to use. As far as I'm concerned, whether you're paying R100.00 per night or R5000.00 per night, there should... More

Dear Ms Bronley-Robyn Gover, first and foremost my most sincere apologies for only responding to your review now, but we had quite a hectic season. I am very sorry that your whole experience was not great, but I appreciate the fact that you gave us a thumbs-up for the cleanliness of the room you stayed in as well as the... More

We've stayed here everytime we've visited PE for the last four years. The couple who own the place are friendly and helpful and the beds are very comfortable. The shower unit is a bit of a tight squeeze for the larger person and it would be nice if the sliding door seperating the bathroom from the bedroom was replaced by... More
