This delightful cottage is exactly as described on the websites. The breakfasts we had here were absolutely delicious. Not the same old boring bacon and eggs you get everywhere else. I just have to mention that we were on holiday and would have loved to sleep in a little. Other guests were leaving early and had their breakfast early and... More

We are not people who "complain" easily as we have owned a B&B ourselves and stayed in many. However, when we tried to provide her with 2 complaints so that she could maybe sort out for next guests, she got aggressive. I strongly urge holidaymakers to steer clear of this place for the season. We wanted to tell her that... More

As we arrived in Port Alfred and saw this guesthouse, we were really surprised how beautiful it was. The lady is a perfect and very friendly host. She does you feel like home. A big thank you for the pleasant stay.

What an esquisite little hidden away "cosy" cottage, it is the perfect place to be @ home away from home!! :) Nestled in a lush green "foresty" garden which makes you feel like you are in the middle of a "nature reserve". Such a wonderful en-suite with all the necessary "homely" feel attributes! Rest and relaxation.....need i say more! Cynthia... More

Cynthia thank you very much for your sincere welcome and hospitality.The cottages were cosy and very very clean. We enjoyed your well prepared sumptuous breakfast. We really experienced an old world charm in the beautifully renovated cottages. We can definitely recommend Coral B & B.

We loved it here. Cynthia is wonderful as a host and you can expect something a bit different for breakfast every morning. It's great so remember to book the breakfast if you are going for the self-catering unit. The location overall is close to everything in Port Alfred, but provides a bit more out of the way privacy!

There are few options for accomodation at Coral's. The first being a Bed and breakfast only option is a georgous old cottage. Owned by a doctor in the 1800's, this lovely old cottage has been moved lock stock and barrel to its present location in Cynthias lushious garden. The next option is a modern and spacious up/down unit with self... More
