Stayed with Wendy for 1 night at start of our trip, and she couldn't have been nicer. Lovely house, great brekkie, and a glass of sherry waiting for us after our evening meal. Would recommend without hesitation

Our stay was really nice! We were upgraded to an executive room.
The hostess was very friendly in a personal yet unobtrusive way. She recommended some nice restaurants for dinner and the next morning we had a delicious breakfast freshly made at the time we set the night before. We would come back anytime!

Stayed for one night on our way to Shamwari. Wendy was a very pleasant host and very helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very nice.
It is a bit out of town and it is not advisable to walk after dark so taxis are required but that was no problem.

We stayed only for a night, but we enjoyed a good time. Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds, easy to find. Wendy was warm & welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. She was very helpful and friendly, always smiling.

We had a bit of difficulty finding Manor 38 from the directions noted on the website but once there we had a wonderful time and rest before our long flight journey home to the States.

Wendy and Christopher are a successful team that run a well oiled machine. We felt right at home upon arrival and felt like we were leaving as treasured family members upon departure.

I would highly recommend this wonderful lodging facility for a one-night stay to a multi-day rest. The manor is only a couple of blocks from the improving shore that has an excellent running trail and ocean/bay swimming lane. We found Ginger restaurant to be everything Wendy recommended and the new casino was an interesting addition to this restful stay.

One surprise was the extra cost of breakfast when we thought it was included in the lodging fee. Even with the extra cost it was an excellent breakfast and I would pay for it again if we ever get back that way.

Room Tip: Number 4 was our room and it provided a wonderful stay.

Stayed on night, the last of our honeymoon in South Africa. Wendy and Chris were so friendly and helpful; booking a meal for us ina near by restaurant (they asked first what type of meal we wanted). Came back that evening to find rise petals and a bottle of bubbly, wishing us congratulations. A lovely touch! Breakfast was delicious, rooms was lovely and enjoyed our stay, however brief.

We stayed only one night in Manor 38 en route to Shamwari. We really wished we had stayed longer. Everything here is perfect from the warm welcome by Wendy, Christopher and Benjy the dog to the stylish rooms and comfortable public areas. The courtyard garden and pool area is a secluded oasis and I would have happily sat around the pool and relaxed if we had stayed longer. The breakfast is superb and beautifully presented. We raved over the muesli to Wendy and she kindly presented us with some to take home. I would not hesitate to stay here again if we re-visited Port Elizabeth.
