A heartfelt welcome and magnificent rooms; efficient service, superb breakfast and chocolate and sherry nightcap(!) make this exceptional.Breakfast deserves special mention: generous portions of the freshest produce and home-made muesli made this memorable and well worth the extra money.Grimy floor tiles in bathroom were the only (small) negative.

My wife and I stayed most recently at Manor 38 on our way to Durban. I have to say, both of us were just so pleasantly surprised of the beautiful property, the friendly and humble service and all the extra touches that were made to individualize our stay.

Wendy knew it was my wife’s birthday, so it was such a lovely gesture to have a nice little surprise waiting for us when we checked in. The place is very cozy and just feels like home. We initially wanted to venture out and go for dinner, but we ended up getting take out and bringing it back because the place was so beautiful.

The room is very spacious, the bathroom layout fantastic. All was very fresh and clean. Breakfast the next day was delicious. Cereal is home-made, eggs are from a farm nearby. And above all, every little interaction has just been pleasant and thoughtful. We really didn’t want to leave. It’s because of Manor 38 that Port Elizabeth is now a place we’d like to visit again, to see Wendy and Christopher.

I work for a luxury hotel brand in the USA and confidently recommend Manor 38! You won’t regret it, beautiful, great service, home!

We stayed here on our way from Cape Town to Grahamstown. We had such a lovely stay, we wished we'd had more time.
We arrived after a long drive in the rain. Wendy and Christopher greeted us and made sure we were comfortable. After relaxing by the pool, we decided we didn't want to go out for dinner. Wendy called the local restaurant, ordered our food and Christopher went to get it. They set a table for us by the pool and we dined by candlelight. Perfect end to a stress filled day!
The next morning we enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast.
The room was very comfortable and very clean. While there was a limit on the free wifi, it was enough for us to check our email and meet our daily requirements.
We had such a lovely time, we wished we had time to linger.
