Our luxury room was well appointed, overlooking 1of the 2 pools and the tennis court. Racquets and balls provided as were pool towels and cushions for our personal sun loungers. A very good substantial breakfast was provided in the main house - a 2 min stroll through the well kept gardens from our room. The B&B was well situated -...

Having landed in PE after an over night flight to Jo'burg and then a connection to PE we couldn't have asked for a better welcome. The rooms were well equipped with an interesting collection of African artefacts. Wonderful gardens to wander around and a welcoming pool to cool down in. Breakfast was a delight.

By far one of the best guest houses I have stayed in Port Elizabeth! Extremely large comfortable rooms with luxurious linen and towels and lovely personal touches to make our stay memorable. The garden is huge, well maintained and particularly exquisite! Cannot fault a thing. Highly recommended!

First visit to Forest Hall & most likely will not be our last. We were very pleased with our accommodation which was in the cottages furthest from the main house. The quality of fixtures & fittings was good & with our own covered stoep it was easy to relax & enjoy ourselves. Our guests also enjoyed their accommodation next door....

Thank you for your review and feedback. Pleased you enjoyed your stay .Just for the record . None of our rooms are equipped with air conditioning ,all have ceiling fans and additional countertop fans to place next to your bedside. The ceiling fan has 3 speed settings to adjust accordingly. Generally this seems adequate for most seasons in Port Elizabeth...
