Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our quiet room was nicely laid out, the kitchenette was well equipped and the bed very comfortable. Stephen was very attentive and hospitable, providing excellent advice on things to do in and around Port Elizabeth. We followed up on several of his recommendations after leaving the P.E. area and they all turned out to be worthwhile stops.

We flew into the Port Elizabeth airport, and chose Treetops mainly because they offer to pick up or take you to the airport. But we also found a very comfortable place to stay. The delightful hosts offer very clean rooms with comfortable beds and nice sheets, and fluffy towels. We slept very well. After our 31 hours of travel to get there, we really appreciated a friendly face to meet us. Our final flight was delayed, and we felt bad about asking them to pick us up after 11:00 p.m. But they were so kind, and were more worried about how weary we were from our travels. We had rooms #1 and #2, and we had a double bed and a single bed in each room. There were cookies, tea, coffee, and milk in our rooms. We also really enjoyed the tasty candy bars, that were unique to South Africa. Great touch for new visitors to your country! We found no electric outlets in the bathroom, but that seemed to be common to many of the places we stayed. There was some road noise, but it certainly didn't disturb our sleep. We order breakfast, which costs an additional R70, and it was great. We started with fresh fruit, cereal, cheese platter, and bread, and finished with a full breakfast with bacon, sausage, eggs, and hash browns. The airport is less than 5 minutes away, and they also gave us a free ride the next morning to pick up our rental car. Great service! PS - We had some trouble finding a phone to call them when we first arrived at the airport, but finally got an airport employee to make the local call for us.

Firstly thank you for such a positive review for which we thank you. Secondly, sincere apologies for the oversight in not advising you of the Tourist Office who would have contacted us on your behalf, again, sorry about that. So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you enjoyed all the little extras we have in the room, small things but very important for the enjoyment of our guests. Thanks for the comment about the plugs but generally in South Africa we have found a minimal need for them. Our collection and delivery of our guests to and from the airport is an important part of our service and contributes greatly to the success of Treetops. Thank you again for such a great review and we trust that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in South Africa.

A few hours after our booking we received a very warm & friendly "welcome email" - which we appreciated a lot. A good start of our South Africa trip was proposed - and so it became! Staff, Room, Breakfast - perfect - the only thing to do is recommend this Guesthouse to other People.
The location is only 5mins from the airport of Port Elizabeth. Good starting point towards Addo Elephant Park.

The last stopover on our holiday before the flight home was at Treetops. This is close enough to Port Elizabeth Airport do be almost on its doorstep, but with virtually no interference from aircraft noise.

Our host, Elizabeth, is most charming, welcoming and helpful. Our room was spacious with both a large comfortable double bed and a single bed, en suite bathroom, free WiFi and self catering facilities. I was made to feel most welcome as well to use the office computer to do our airline check-in and print our boarding passes. I also really appreciated the spaciousness as there was a lot of baggage re-organising to do to prepare for the journey home!

Treetops is very secure with a gated entrance to the car park which is operated by a remote control on the guest key-ring. There is a good selection of restaurants close at hand.

Very happy to recommend.

We booked this Guest House because our flight was going out of Port Elizabeth early in the morning. Elizabeth is a great host - she drove us to the airport early in the morning. Even if breakfast was from 7am she made us fresh scrambled eggs before 7am.

Very nice room, good breakfast and a very very nice owner of this hotel. Everything was very safe. Owner had good tips for us, where to go. Owner catched us from the airport for free! Next time in this city we will prefere this hotel again.
