About The Lookout Guest House

As the name suggests The Lookout Guest House, is perched high on a hill overlooking the picturesque town of Port Alfred and commands panoramic views of the sea, the Kowie River, The Royal Alfred Marina and the colourful small boat harbour. Situated on the R72 midway between Port Elizabeth and East London, Port Alfred, is the ideal base from which to explore South Africa's magnificent sunshine coast or to make excursions into the historically enriched Frontier country of the interior.

The three self-contained units are all elegantly furnished, luxuriously appointed, have their own separate entrances and boast magnificent views. They are fully equipped with most of the modern conveniences and the well fitted kitchenettes are a real treat. All are serviced daily unless otherwise requested. Secure off street parking is available and barbecue/braai facilities and wood are provided. The deck and splash pool is the ideal place for sun lovers to relax or to enjoy a refreshing drink after a long day.

We really enjoyed our weekend getaway in Port Alfred and our stay at The Lookout made it twice as special. Comfort, luxury, charm and fabulous hospitality is what we found. And, wow, what stunning views! Thanks Louise for making it worth our while. Will definitely be back if we are in town again.

What a beautiful, neat and comfortable place. The hostess is an extremely friendly and wonderful lady. I cant compare the service we got to that of any other Guest House or hotel that I ever visited. Will definitely come back again and recommend it to my family and friends.
