We would highly recommend this guesthouse in Port Alfred. It is conveniently situated within walking distance of restaurants, the golf course and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we certainly will return again.

Mike and Joan are fantastic hosts that make you feel at home right away. Mike even took it upon himself to keep my partner company and show him around town whilst my daughter and I spent the night away. Breakfasts are excellent and should not be missed and the accommodation was perfect for what we wanted. I would definitely stay there again.
