About My Pond Hotel

After a state of the art renovation, the hotel is also the first property in the country to harness geothermal energy, and sources all ingredients for the contemporary South African menu (and much of the décor) locally, supporting both sustainability and community initiatives.The spacious suites have heart-stirring river views, and there are excellent facilities for conferences and special events. Staff will happily organise activities from horse riding to golf (Port Alfred being a premier golfing destination), or simply relax in the plunge pool or take a stroll along the river. However long you stay, you’ll take away a little of the sunshine coast with you.

Port Alfred is a quaint town, with many hidden gems, quiet English pubs, Sports Bars, beach bars for the teenagers, two shopping malls, and a host of delightful gift and antique shops. We have two designer Golf Courses nearby, a very active air training school and miles of unspoilt beaches, where even in the busy times, you may not see another soul.

All hot water, the swimming pool and air-conditioning is heated/cooled using innovative and very enviro-friendly geothermal (heat from the earth) technology – a first for South Africa. Also a vast majority of lighting is low wattage energy saving globes.

The rooms are all en-suite, air-conditioned, with LCD televisions (10 satellite channels), telephones, universal plug points, Safe, fridge and tea/coffee facilities. The Suites are equipped with I-Pod docking station radios, heated towel rails and sleeper couches.There is disabled access to all our rooms (via lift) and a full disabled toilet in our lobby.Guests also have access to a Swimming Pool and WiFi Internet.

                          Breakfast was great but if they could have options on eggs not scrambled eggs everyday, fried egg on some days.

                          Perfect spot to watch Boat Race. Wish there was better coffee in the rooms.
