Forest Hall is one of the best guest houses I have stayed in from an overall point of view. I have no reservations about this place, or the people running the establishment. The room was extremely well appointed, the grounds of the guest house have a really well kept garden, lovely swimming pool and tennis court.. The dining hall served...

Very charming accommodation. Quirky decor. This place has all the amenities - so the kinks have all been worked out. No view though. And it feels a little compoundy ... But if it is comfort you are looking for, this place is for you.

We really enjoyed our stay at Forest Hall and will continue to visit for future trips to PE. The guest house is set over multiple properties in a beautiful and enchanting park like garden. Our room was clean, comfortable and large. The modern bathroom was very clean with a large shower and lovely bath.

We stayed 1 night at Forest Hall Guest House and it was a real pleasure. Even before arriving to the B&B we got some advice concerning a Game drive in the Addo Elephant Park. Another excellent advice was to go to Two Olives restaurant when we arrived in the evening. The house and garden was so beautiful we wished we...

After a month long stay in SA travelling Forest Hall Guest House was one of our favourite stays.

Got a free upgrade, which was really good. This place oozes comfort and well-being, however, aircon in the room would have been a Big plus, as it can get hot at night. The owner is werry helpful and keen on helping, should you have any questions. No noise from town, as it is located in a pleasant area just outside...
