James and his family are the most caring hosts you can imagine! From picking us at Port Elizabeth´s airport at night, to reserving a room for a visit in Addo Elephant Park, sharing the best restaurants in town or serving us breakfast really early in the morning, he is always friendly, kind and just a lovely humourous fellow! On my birthday even an ice-cold bottle of champagne was prepared for me! His paintings adorn all the beautiful furnished, cozy and spacious rooms with a kitchenette and of course complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, as well as shower and bath tub await the traveller. If you love nature, you are at the right place as well, as Forest Hall Guest House itself is surrounded by a lovely garden and Romanesque pool. Next door is the Golf Estate and you could relax playing a round of golf there, take one of the bikes and explore the neighbourhood or just hike and admire all the birds you see. Don´t forget to do all the sights of Port Elizabeth city center, which is only a stone throw away!

The Service received was great!!The room was very comfortable and much detail and care was taken to ensure comfort. The location is great, close to everything you need, the grounds of the Guest House are wonderful, home away from home. And the breakfast rocks!!

We had a really lovely stay at Forest Hall. We came straight from the airport as we were beginning our trip along the Garden Route and this was the perfect place to stay and get an excellent nights rest. The guest house full of character and the rooms were really nice, very clean and comfortable. The location was extremely safe, set in the very lovely private gardens of the guest house. James (the owner) was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed and gave us advice on where to visit along our trip. Breakfast in the morning was also very nice. A really wonderful place to stay and I would highly recommend.
