“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

On my recent road trip to the Cape, I decided to overnight in Port Elizabeth. I booked at Richmond House as it seemed reasonable and I really only needed a place to sleep the night. What a lovely surprise. I stayed in the little flatlet situated in the rear of the property. It was wonderfully spacious, modern and clean with lots of character. I arrived later than expected but it was no trouble for the hosts who were very welcoming and even arranged for my car to be stored safely at their home. (It was loaded with luggage and Christmas presents.) The following morning I enjoyed a hearty breakfast which was included and then promptly collected to fetch my car. I would definitely stay here again.

Flew into Port Elizabeth for 1 night before starting off on a garden route trek. This place is not to expensive and is in a nice little neighborhood on Richmond hill. The view out the back was of the ocean and you could see the soccer stadium. A few restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Room was quite large with a separate bathroom and flat screen tv. There was a small kitchen area as well.

Breakfast was served across the street at another B&B and was quite good: eggs to order with bacon, sausage and grilled mushrooms. There was also ample yogurt, cerial, fruit and coffee.

It's not a luxury B&B but it was a nice place to spend the night and the price was right.
