On arriving in Port Elizabeth in the middle of a heat wave and a very busy New Year's day we were pleasantly surprised with Driftsands Guest House. Our host was courteous, friendly and very helpful. We missed an air-conditioner in the rooms, the ceiling fan only managed to move the hot air around. Our rooms were neat, clean and to our needs. Excellent situated, walking distance from Summerstrand and the esplanade.Thank you Driftsands for being part of our fond memories in this road trip.

Warm welcome, outstanding  hospitality. Friendliness, cleanliness, safety, leisure are what define Driftsand. Hospitality was outstanding. I'm planning to go to PE and definitely stay in Driftsand
