Manor 38 was our 5th & final stop while doing the Garden Route for our honeymoon & it was by far our favourite! Yes 12 Apostles had amazing views & Hunters had fantastic gardens & cottages, but Manor 38 was just what we needed! Marelise welcomed us with a much needed coffee & home made cake & made us feel at home straight away! We then went to relax in the very comfortable & luxurious room. The room had very nice fixtures & fittings, a very comfortable bed, wall mounted flat screen tv, tea & coffee making facilities & hairdryer.The shower with its many nozzles was also fantastic!! The breakfasts were awesome! The home made museli & yoghurt was delicious & the bacon & eggs were perfect!!
The location was just 5 mins from Humewood Golf course which pleased my husband & was only a 5 mins drive from the beach & the main front area of Port Elizabeth with the many shops & restaurants.
Marelise & her team were wonderful & we really hope to be able to visit again in the future! Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcome & helping make our honeymoon even more special!

I stayed in Manor 38 in January, when i was taken to my room and executive room, it was lovely, very comfortable bed, and the most helpful staff, it had a lovely pool and patio, and i sat on the patio sunning myself all afternoon, it was bliss. Its only a couple of miniutes drive from The Boardwalk, a shopping and restaurant haven.
The room was large, with a fab bathroom and amazing shower. In the evening i was brought a glass of sherry and a lindt chocolate, which was a lovely touch.
The breakfast was served in a lovely dining room, and i have to say, was like dining in a michelin stared restaurant, it was lovely, with fruit, brought to you, and a full cooked breakfast, to die for. This place is a complete hidden gem, and i wouldnt hestitate from staying again.

We simply cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had Manor 38 late November 2009. Marelise, the hostess, and Christopher, concierge, are so professional yet warm. They provided an exceptional accommodation experience during our 3 week wedding and honeymoon trip in South Africa.

Marelise included such thoughtful touches including fresh flowers and rose petals to our room since we were on our honeymoon. The sherry cordials at bedtime were another special touch. It made our overall experience so romantic and memorable for us both.

Breakfast was superb and made to order. We wish we could have stayed longer. We recommend Manor 38 without hesitation to anyone looking for a very special accommodation in Port Elizabeth. The ambiance and staff make it truly a gem!

We spent two nights at Manor 38 at the start of our 2 weeks in South Africa and I would recommend anyone spening a bit of time in the area before heading off down the Garden Route. There are some game reserves within driving distance and we spent the full day there at Addo which is will worth a visit. There also looked to be plenty of other things in the area aswell.

Manor 38 was very chic from the deor in the communal areas, to the rooms and to the breakfasts. We stayed in Room 1 which was very spacious and beautifully designed and we had all we needed. This was the best four star accommodation we stayed in and the only reason we could think it wasnt 5 star was maybe as there were no balconies. It certainly felt like a 5 star place.

Summerstrand to the south of Port Elizabeth was also a safe area, without the high fences arountd the houses in the area that we saw in a few other places in South Africa. We have no worries walking back from the restaurants 15 minutes away at night. Summerstrand seemed like an upmarket area to us with some great 30s properties in the area.

A great modern hotel with luxurious fittings and nothing too much trouble. Close to beach and restaurants at the waterfront.
