Well situated B&B in suburb of Port Elizabeth. Friendly staff and room pleasant and well serviced. Secure property with ample parking. Family room was located above B&B breakfast room - which was noisy from 06h00 in the mornings. Access to room somewhat laborious as we had to lock/unlock several doors to access our room.

Very large rooms, wireless but also the feeling to be in a real african cottage with phantastic landlords and in the middle of a botanical garden. I selected the mogoose because it was very close to the Marathon starting point, but I must say that i was extremely lucky

We recently stayed at Mongoose Manor to meet up with family before a wedding at Cape St Francis. We found it to be a great central point for visiting some of the many game parks in the area and also the beautiful coast which was not far away. We are from New Zealand and we were made to feel very welcome at Mongoose and also very secure with their property well fenced and alarmed. We loved the relaxing gardens which were overlooked by a lovely big patio. Our breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed the private bar in the evenings for our pre dinner drinks. Rhonda was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We will not hesitate to send any other Kiwi visitors to Mongoose Manor in PE

Room Tip: The end room overlooking the garden is the most private if you are wanting quiet time away but other...

A beautiful converted unusual home set with yellow wood pillars and floors in the main house, wooded garden, and stream, with easy access to the center of the City.Safe and secure parking behind locked gates. Warm friendly atmosphere,good food, big comfortable rooms with all the small touches that go with a really well organised, good B&B plus the friendly owner is happy to accommodate reasonable requests....really a home from home. Will definitely recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a place to stay, and would personally go back to stay when in Port Elizabeth.

A really pleasant stay and friendly service at Mongoose Manor on my recent trip to PE. Beautiful gardens and delicious breakfasts. Highly recommended for a relaxed weekend stay, a haven in between business meetings or a venue for wedding party to dress/stay ;-)

We had a very good stay in BB Mongoose. We felt like at home, we enjoyed the room, the garden besides the small river, the birds, the trees, the flowers...The attention and the details were also worth mentioning.

We were in Port Elizabeth visiting family and Mongoose Manor was a perfect, central place to stay and pop in and out as we pleased. The garden is absolutely beautiful. Very friendly. Hopefully be back soon.
