My husband was offered a permanent position in Port Elizabeth, which left us in a quite a position, as we had a house to sell, house to rent and didn't know anyone in PE. I found 50 College Drive as a BNB that would be able to accommodate us for a month until we could find a place to stay, and also get to know our way around PE. Our home for a month truly suited our requirements for the time, and helped us so much to find our feet in PE. The rooms, bathroom and kitchen were a great size, kept in spotless condition. Nanette and Johnny were the perfect hosts, and helped us to familiarise ourselves around PE. They even helped us find a home to rent in PE. A great place to stay, with the best hosts in PE. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I have stayed at 50 College Drive Bed and Breakfast a number of times and have never been disappointed. The old house has been lovingly restored by Jonny to its former glory and the beautiful yellowwood woodwork gives the home a wonderful warm feeling. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms beautifully redone. The breakfasts are delicious and relaxed. The house is centrally situated and close to a major shopping centre, hospital, restaurants and easy access to the beach. Jonny and Nanette are wonderful hosts and make all their guests feel at home. I would highly recommend anybody passing through Port Elizabeth to make this their stopover destination.

We found 50 College Drive by chance and how fortunate that chance was. My husband and I spent 3 nights here. The house is beautiful. It has been lovingly restored to a high standard but also is very comfortable. Our bedroom was huge and was in many respects more like a suite with room for a table and chairs. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom had both a bath and shower with great pressure for the shower. A fridge and microwave were provided in addition to tea/coffee making facilities. The room was fabulous but the owners were a complete gem. The welcome at breakfast was fantastic and the food was great. Next time we pass through Port Elizabeth, 50 College Drive will be first on our list and we have already recommended it to friends. Thank you for looking after us so beautifully.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. Our room faced the street but there was no problem with traffic noise.

My wife and I, along with our daughter and her husband, had a wonderful stay at 50 College Drive Bed and Breakfast. The rooms were beautiful and equipped with all we needed and more! The breakfast was delicious and ample. We only stayed one night, but should we come through Port Elizabeth again, we would love to stay there and plan to be there for more nights. We were given a warm welcome when we arrived. We would gladly recommend this place to everyone we know who is looking for a place to stay a short while.

I spent 2 nights at 50 College Drive and I must say it exceeded my expectations. A beautifully restored home that has a lovely welcoming and homely feel. High standards and thoroughly look after. Would highly recommend this property.

I spent 4 nights in an extremely spacious and comfortable room at 50 College Drive.

The standard was higher than I have ever experienced in a bed and breakfast establishment before...it was more like a mini apartment with a huge sleigh bed and a bathroom with bath and shower. There was even a small deck off the french doors into the garden where I could entertain family and friends to coffee and delicious rusks all provided on the welcome tray. I appreciated the way the house had been built in about 1927 was very sympathetically converted by the owners so that you still had the feeling you were living in an early 20th Century home by at all the mod cons of the 21st century...TV, microwave, fridge etc. . The location was safe and I was able to take a walk up the road and see the famous Greys College where several well known South Africans have been educated in the past. Locals jogging in the heat and others walking their dogs
The owners were friendly and helpful and by the time I left I felt as if I had known them for ages

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the deck...it is near the back ....but no trouble with noise at all

If you prefer, breakfasts can be served in your room or out on the deck on a summers day.

Each bedroom is equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, TV with DSTV channels (B & B bouquet), tea and coffee making facilities, heaters and hair-dryers.

The bathroom (shower only) is en-suite from the main bedroom. A flat screen TV with the B & B DSTV bouquet can swivel between the kitchen and main bedroom. Location: We are centrally situated in the up-market suburb of Mill Park. Everything in Port Elizabeth that you could need is a 1 – 10 minute drive away, including Grey High School, St Georges and Greenacres and Provincial Hospitals, P.E. Golf Club, P.E.
