We've stopped here a number of times over the years and always look forward to coming back.
Joan and Mike are very welcoming: nothing is too much trouble and they always find time to chat, point us the direction of the best restaurants, places to visit, etc.
The en suite rooms are very spacious with quality beds and furnishings, incl DSTV and aircon. The cooked breakfasts are very good too. You never come away hungry!
The beach, golf course, two good restaurants and two pubs are all within walking distance, with the town itself just a couple of minutes' drive away.
Don't come to the Eastern Cape without visiting Sheilan House and Port Alfred.

Thank you for a friendly and welcoming weekend. Your Hospitality and great comments already made by other Guests speaks for it self. I had a tranquil, peaceful rest, whilst working and preparing another shop opening. Super English breakfast and great room space. Thanks Mike & Joan!!! From Renier

A very cousy but modern lodge, very well taken care of. The owners are very nice and always ready to help, offer excellent advise. Breakfast is plentyful and of good quality. It was a pleasure stay at Sheilan!

Room Tip: it was just great!! (the only thing - if you stroll the garden - mind the dog droppings..)

Joan and Mike run a warm, welcoming House. As soon as you walk in the door you experience a relaxed friendly atmosphere.The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable,. If self catering is preferred all rooms are equipped for that purpose. A
substantial breakfast can be had at a time of your choosing. Joan and Mike have an extensive knowledge of all amenities both local and nearby, and will book trips for guests if required. Sheilan House is very close to Royal Port Alfred Golf Club and all local amenities.

Room Tip: All room are of the same quality/
