My wife and I were only there for one night, but the brief stay was very pleasant. Tanya was a great host and adds a personal touch to one's stay at the property. We enjoyed every minute of it. Thanx.

Loved my stay here. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. The rooms were of professional status. Definitely recommend staying here. Also Port Elizabeth is a great city to visit. I love my time here. People are friendly and the city is clean.

I would say on the amount I paid it was good. although the room was a bit small. I would prefer other people and would also stay again. It is close to the airport but you don't get bothered by the airplanes nice and silence.

This is a good value for money place to stay if you need to be in downtown PE. The facility was clean and the service friendly. It was easy to book, no hidden costs and no exaggerated marketing. Great restaurants close by on Stanley street.

the room was cold and we could not find the pug to put on the panel heater, guests must be made aware of the fact that they are "sharing a house" there were instances that guests came in late and made a lot of noise to the point that I felt I was going to tell them to quiet down,...
