Excellent B and B. Wonderful rooms, with balconies overlooking the river. A really fantastic breakfast. Lovely situation on the river. Dale could not have been more helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. We even tried fishing in the river Kowie. A very pretty garden with a lovely pool.

This guest house is situated in a lovely location overlooking the Kowie River and is close to the centre of Port Alfred. The accommodation is clean and comfortable with the added advantage of facilities for self catering if you wish. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners most welcoming.

The best part of our stay was the kindness of the Guest House host, Dale. He was thoughtful and attentive. After a busy work week, we appreciated arriving in Port Alfred and having the ability to just relax.
