“Outstanding cannot recommend highly enough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

Stayed for one night but wish it had been more. From doing the booking, to staying in the cottage everything was dealt with in a highly efficent manner. Roy was amazing to say the least.He was there to meet us when we arrived, gave us wonderful advice about all the resturants in the area and anything else we needed to know, nothing was too much for him. I was also very impressed with the way Roy dealt with me cancelling a night. I had to cancel a night the day before we were due to arrive due to a change in our plans. He was so understanding and had absolute no problem with refunding me for the one night and the money was back into my account the next day.
I was generally so impressed with Port Elizabeth, great food, great service, friendly, and of course great accomadation at Belvedere Cottage. Thanks Roy and your team

Dear Caz & Annie,

Thank you for giving us such a wonderful review. It was a real pleasure to welcome you to Belvedere Cottage.
We will come and find you in the Midlands of Kwazulu Natal. Your Dargle Valley Pork Products are simply the best. Thank you for the delicious surprise on your arrival.

Hope to see you back soon.

Warm regards, Roy

I stayed at Belvedere Cottages earlier this month. It was the best decision I could have made. Roy went above and beyond to ensure that my stay was an unforgettable experience. I have stayed in a few B&B's for business trips and it is not often that you find one such as Belvedere Cottages where the staff and owner will go to such great lengths to ensure you have the perfect experience in their establishment. I would recommend Belvedere cottages to any traveler looking for the perfect experience in Port Elizabeth. No matter what the purpose of your stay is, Roy and his staff will do everything in their power to make sure you are happy and taken care of for the entire duration of your stay.

Well done Roy, I will definitely be back!

Stayed for one night at the end of our garden route tour. We were welcomed with open arms by Roy who is the most wonderful host and gave us great restaurant recommendations as well as touristy spots to check out. He even woke up at 5am to come see us off on the day of our departure! Loved the furnishings, ornaments and decor. Wonderful space for both a one night stay or in fact a longer stay. Beautiful garden which I wish I'd had more time to relax in. Fantastic range of appliances, crockery, cutlery etc.

My only complaint was that the neighbours played loud music until midnight and it was so loud that it felt like it was inside my room. But that's not Roy's fault and I'm sure this isn't the norm. And also that the main bedroom's en-suite didn't have any hot water in the morning.

Would definitely recommend Belvedere Cottages and thank you again Roy!

It was a pleasure to host representatives from one of the top game lodges in South Africa and their comments are valued.

Apologies for the neighbour’s birthday party. There is always abundant hot water, but the tap must run a bit for the water to flow from the parent geyser.

Thank you for the feedback.

Warm regards,

Roy

Stayed for a weekend to watch the rugby test match. Roy gave us a spin round town and dropped us at the game. We had an awsome time, resturants and pubs within walking distance. Safe area to walk around at night.

House is perfect, comfortable, clean and great value. will stay here again.

Thanks Roy for going out of your way & beyond the call of duty in giving us a lift to the stadium on Saturday, it is this type of service which will always have people returning time & time again, well done.
I will not hesitate in recomending Belvedere Cottages to everyone and anyone who may need a place to stay in PE..

Hi Grant,

It was a great pleasure to welcome you and your friends to Belvedere Cottage and what a bonus that our team won the match. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium was packed to the rafters!
We will come to enjoy Chillifields B&B on our next visit to KZN and enjoy your beautiful setting.

Our kindest regards,

As a Tourist Guide and Owner of a Business, my German clients do not always want to stay in a hotel. And this is the perfect hide-away. I remember how well we were recieved by the owners and how the clients loved sitting outside in the sun in their own little private patio enjoying reading books. We stayed there for 2 nights before embarking on our journey to Cape Town.. The owners went out of their way to accommodate us and made dinner reservations for us on our behalf at an excellent restaurant not to far away. Thankyou for the hospitality. Carmen.

I look forward to recommending you with confidence.

We have just enjoyed an unforgettable stay at Belvedere Cottages. A wonderful atmosphere is created with the tranquil garden and beautiful furnishings. The rates are good value for money. Our host, assisted us in booking a wonderful day out to the Addo Park. Here we saw lots of different animals including lions, buffalo and elephant. We will definitely be recommending Belvedere Cottages to all our friends back home and we hope to be back soon!
