Right on the water with a super view of the canals. This place is a real treat. In the middle of port Alfred it is a quiet place to recharge and relax. The food in the restaurant is lovely and the breakfast is sumptuous. The rooms are well decorated and the history of the ship wrecks is fascinating

Good value with a wonderful breakfast selection. The decor is a bit dated but the bed is comfie. Spectacular view and plenty of bird life. Please enquire about the dinner specials as this is not advertised.

The reception and check in was efficient. Unfortunately no welcome drink. The room is a nice size and the bed comfortable. Decor is dated and carpets shabby. Wifi is limited to 50mb however I was unable to connect so it was useless! The spa is really good with wonderful ladies ready to pamper you at a very reasonable fee. Breakfast... More

We stayed over and opted to drive between the Grahamstown festival. The service at reception on arrival was very good. The room was warm and clean, extremely comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was superb and we are looking forward to our return trip. The Halyards is really excellent all round value for money. The hotel is older now, but oldies... More

I was most impressed with the staff at breakfast who assisted with a take-away egg and bacon sandwich for my husband who was feeling unwell and couldn't come down to the dining room. They even filled our flask for us so that he could have coffee enroute!

We enjoyed our stay. Food portions were very generous. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. It would be nice to have some air freshner in the toilet. The puzzle idea was good. I would recommend the hotel to friends and family

Did not plan to stay over in Port Alfred. Drove into town and was recommended. Did not disappoint. On the water's edge. Good setting. Great gardens and pool. Food was simple but well prepared. Rooms clean, bathrooms all the extras. Staff friendly. I have added to my list for a return visit.
