We arrived with our 19 month old daughter, and were well looked after. Louise has a plush, professionally run guest house overlooking the whole of Port Alfred. A good place to base your travels. A couple of good restaurants in town. All within 5 mins. Hospitality was astounding, and the guest house itself is very well looked after. Wifi in... More

Class, location, amenities, friendliness, service; all rolled into one: The Lookout! Arrived late Saturday night (last minute decision), only to be received and welcomed in a friendly yet professional manner. The room is absolutely acceptable. Neat, tidy, spacious, comfortable, and everything you'll need to enhance a beautiful stay. The view is "to die for"!! I will definitely make use of... More

We loved our two nights stay at this very well appointed guest house. Louise and Allan are perfect hosts, helpful in every way. Breakfast delivered to our room was very tastefully presented. As keen golfers we liked the local course, but the real gem is Fish River Sun, great course and amazing value.

The apartment has everything. It's home away from home. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The house is beautiful and the interior is welcoming. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves here. If we had known it would be this nice, we could have extended our stay.

From Lookout Guest House you have a wonderful view over the city. The breakfast was great, the staff friendly and there was nothing to complain about the flat. We had a one night stay and it was a pity that it wasn't longer.
