“Awesome Hosts”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Lovely friendly welcome and just a short walk to beach and shopping. Hosts went beyond when we required a doctor. Would definately stay again. We had a rental, parking no problem. Wished we had more time to look around the area more. Maybe next visit!

We received a warm and friendly welcome from our efficient hosts. Well maintained premises and really good breakfast near pool
The guest house is a few minutes walk from the beach and other amenities.

Great reception and warm welcome by the owner, the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and fresh and the localization is very good. Excellent cost benefit, mainly for those traveling by car.

Our last knight was spent at Algoa Guest House. The reception was very friendly. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast area was small but charming the breakfast excellent. Our host always tried to help and be of service. We have been to many B&Bs on our round trip and this was one of the best.

Roger and Lisa are excellent hands-on hosts. I wanted an inexpensive, hassle free, good breakfast place near the Boardwalk. And I got it! My only problem was getting the TV to work but I have this problem everywhere.
I will stay here again on future visits to PE.
