Good hosts at this small and cosy B&B. Lovely breakfast and good welcome with tea and shortbread! ST Francis Bay was quiet in February but relaxing. Recommended as a stopping place between Port Elizabeth and the Garden Route.

Nice room with a large shower in the bathroom. Little bit humid as it is very close to the sea. No AC was available in our room. Vue from the room is nice, it is quiet and peacefull. Small swimng pool is available.. Exellent breakfast and great hospitality. Good wifi, good bedding.

We had a room on the ground floor, which was comfortable and spacious. We were greeted by the owner's husband (sorry I cannot remember his name), who was very friendly and helpful. We had our own little veranda although not very private. Breakfast was really nice.

Thanks Ann. Our stay at i-Lollo Lodge was good and comfortable. Would have wanted more secure parking than outside the place. (Maybe because we come from Gauteng). It was great to walk in different directions and find nice views and take good photograps.

One night while visiting friends. Proprietor Ann is the epitome of a host, welcoming us, showing us what is in the room and the breakfast next morning was really good. Fruit compote, a wide variety of hot and coldfods. Good stay !

Lovely room with our own little stoep where we could sit and watch the sea with a glass of wine. Good breakfast prepared by Ann and both Ann and Rob were very friendly. We would certainly go there again.

Set in a lovely area of St Francis where the house roofs are all thatched, and only metres from the beach and lagoon, this a perfect location to base oneself to relax and explore the Cape St Francis area. The rooms are charming with open thatched roof space and a sun terrace to enjoy. The sound of waves gave me...

Great location on the river and in canal area. Warm, friendly service and the best breakfast. Upstairs rooms are modern and large, downstairs older style and smaller. Great value in the very special town of St Francis bay.
