Very comfortable, secure, quiet guesthouse with plenty of parking. Excellent self-catering or B&B options. Room/suites are spacious, well appointed, clean and tidy, and Louise is an excellent hostess with good tips on the amenities in PA. Her breakfasts were superb, and the service good. We would recommend The Lookout for anyone wishing to stay in the area. One tip for Louise: It would be good to have blackout curtains in the bedroom for those of us who have trouble sleeping when the sun comes up!

Room Tip: The more expensive suites have a separate bedroom, great for letting your husband watch the television if you want an early night!

We were greeted with a very warm welcome on arrival. The owners are very hospitable, extremely knowledgeable on places of interest and articulate on local history. The rooms are spacious, very comfortable and OCD spotless. The views across the Marina and into the distance the Indian Ocean are exquisite. Enjoying an excellently prepared breakfast with this backdrop will be hard to beat. We will definitely be recommending The Lookout to friends and have photographic evidence as proof.
Thank-you Alan and Louise (and Milo) for making our stay so restful. We can't wait to return.

We have stayed at 'The Lookout' during our annual visits to South Africa for the past five years. I book early as we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Port Alfred. Louise and her husband are the perfect hosts, always welcoming... even the family dog welcomes us! Lavender on the pillows at night and a delicious breakfast in the morning - what more could any traveller/holiday guest want?!.. and the view is fabulous!
