We were 4 pax staying over for the night
We were welcomed by Dale and made to be very comfortable with a welcome drink before embarking up river for a small cruise with a few glasses of the good stuff
We were able to view various game and birds really relaxing stuff and Dale certainly is very knowledgeable of what's happening with nature and the game aspect.
This guest house has it's own catering facility in each room with gas facilities so al we had to do was in this instance was to buy our own meat and salads and braised in a lovely atmosphere all the the utensils and condiments are in each room very well laid out and planned.
The rooms are on the river so we were on the balcony facing the river able to watch a brilliant sunset just fantastic.
This guest house and its owners the Humphrey family offer various options all you need to do is ask.
The guest house is a must if in the area.
Please try it you will love it but book well in advance.

I traveled by road all the way from Richards Bay arriving in the evening to one of the most beautiful spots in South Africa. This guest house is 5 star and located on the tranquil setting of the Kowie River looking north towards the hills. The hosts are incredibly hospitable and warm and I felt at home immediately. I sipped a complimentary sherry at sunset before succumbing to necessary sleep in the most comfortable bed ever! I was spoilt at breakfast both by the view and the menu. I left refreshed and ready for the rest of my road trip.

Room Tip: All good! All excellent!

Our room and bathroom was beautiful, beds extremely comfortable, break-fast and views superb and the service was exceptional. This is the place to stay when you visit Port-Alfred. We will be back for sure!

Kowie River Guest House is probably the best kept secret in the Eastern Cape! Because if the word was out about this superb guest house, the waiting list will stretch into the next year! Fantastic attention to detail and comfort. Great rooms and even greater breakfast and hospitality. Dayle is a 5 star host and I will recommend Kowie River Guest without hesitation to anyone who want to experience the good life. As they say in Mary Poppins: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

One of the best places I have stayed at. Brilliant service by Dayle. Great position along the river with well positioned rooms that have everything you need. The most amazing breakfast - warm croissants, fresh fruit, great coffee.

All I can say is that I will definitely be back!
