“Wedding Respite”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

In South Africa for a friend's wedding. Forest Hall became our home from home, allowing us to enjoy the friend's home and retreating over night for some rest to tackle the next party. Excellent. Thank You

We had a short, but lovely stay. Forest Hall is a magnificent small holding in the middle of town. Spacious and peaceful. James and Hilary were very accommodating and made our stay with them simply perfect! We will be back.Especially for that amazing breakfast!

Forest Hall is beautiful. There's a lovely old Roman pool and pretty grounds that I enjoyed. Our room was stunning with giant comfy bed, large bathroom with huge tub and all the amenities you could desire. Breakfast was terrific and the owners were friendly and helpful. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Jim and Hilary were gracious hosts and the proprietor of a beautiful B & B, sorry we could not stay longer. We arrived late from our flight from Jo'burg and he waited for our arrival and welcomed us at a late hour. The room was great and comfortable and the gated estate gardens were a delight to see and walk in the morning. I chose this place based on proximity to the airport and Addo Park, but you must take the time to drive along the coast from Seaview to Summerstrand.

The most hospitable and amazing guest house we have ever stayed in!
We will definitely be back! We have stayed in many places but none like this... From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. The place is absolutely stunning and it is central to most places.

A magnificent property located in a beautiful suburb - easy drive to/from the airport and close to shops and restaurants. The breakfast was fresh and tasty with an excellent array of dishes, loved the flapjacks and stewed fruit!
Bathroom was huge and bed very comfortable - everything you need to relax and unwind.

The location for this place is just round the corner from PE airport, which is perfect for finishing the garden route trip. The accommodation was lovely, with a well equiped room and bathroom, both large - and the breakfast in the morning was good. The only downside would be if you wanted to walk to any restaurants etc, as there isn't anything within walking distance.

Thanks for your review I am so pleased you were happy staying at Forest Hall .Yes it is advisable to self drive or go with our shuttle /taxi to some really great restaurants nearby in our area after dark and all restaurants are close by but not within safe walking distance .Easy distance from Port Elizabeth airport just 4km away
