“Very convenient!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Forest Hall is such a fantastic find! It's very convenient - close to the airport and to a major shopping centre in Walmer. James and his staff were fantastic, the room was absolutely perfect and had everything. It was so cosy we didn't even go out to eat but ordered supper in. And breakfast in the communal sunroom each morning was a bonus! Definitely the only place to stay when in Port Elizabeth

Only stayed for one night but could have happily stayed for longer with the facilities provided. The room was gorgeous and had enough kitchen to self cater easily. All staff spoken to we're helpful and the breakfast was good. Comfy beds with electric blankets (must get one of those!) All round excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a superior room, well worth it.

Thanks for your review .Glad you enjoyed your short stay at Forest Hall and appreciated the electric blankets which are handy in our winter months despite our glorious winter we are having this year the nights do still get a bit cold .I hope some travellers take your advice between booking a standard and a superior room for a little extra cost but with many more comforts

Forest Hall the BEST place to stay in Port Elizabeth and South Africa. The service, efficiency, cleanliness, comfort, friendliness etc are all 5 STAR plus plus. James, Hillary and staff are incredible and nothing is a problem - they go beyond and more. Thank you as we always know we can rely on Forest Hall each and every time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We had a very pleasant stay at Forest Hall Guest House in Walmer, P.E.
The room was beautiful and clean and the beds were very comfortable.
The garden and surroundings were lovely and very peaceful.
The hosts and servants were very friendly and helpful.
We would definitely like to stay again when we are in P.E.

I stayed here for a few days on work. My hosted had suggested a chain hotel which would have been more expensive but I found this place on the internet. It has lovely, one-off rooms, set in a lovely large garden. The host, James, is great, and the TV, wifi, etc all worked very well for me. Look no further!

Thank you James and your team for making our stay so welcoming and comfortable, we stayed at Forest Hall whilst on business in April, then some of our team and our American partners stayed again earlier this week. We will always choose Forest Hall when we are in PE.
The rooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and set in the most lovely garden.
