We spent 1 night at the Outspan Inn. I was travelling with my dad & we each had separate rooms. Both rooms were clean, comfortable & spacious. We couldn't get the free wifi in our rooms but sat in the lounge & accessed it. The owner, Kathryn, was delightful, very friendly & really helpful. We ate dinner & breakfast at...

Based on ratings received here on TA we decided to stay here. We had the rustic 2 bedroom cottage which was built at the turn of the previous century. It is very rustic with a certain charm you would expect, but it included a full kitchen with separate bathroom with shower.

We are regular visitors to Outspan Inn. We have found the self catering to be quite adequate for our needs. The staff are always helpful & friendly & of course we love the setting. I have featured the establishment and area on my Facebook page South Africa My Best and invite you to view the postings. Very popular during the...

My husband and I spent our first night of our Honeymoon at Outspan Inn and it was well worth it! Kathryn and her team made it very special for us. We arrived a bit late but the friendly receptionist helped us check in and showed us to our room and Steve's restaurant on the property. Dinner, lunch or breakfast at...

We made a last minute booking with our family of to stay at Outspan Inn between Xmas and New Year. Kathryn Costello was extremely helpful and fitted us into the cottage next to the pool. She warned methat the cottage was her most basic accommodation as the rest of Outspan was full. She was right, it was basic, but it...

When you go on location for a long period of time on a shoot that involves spending long hours at sea, you dont want your accommodation letting you down when you get back in. This is why I will always base myself at the Outspan Inn when I come to Port St Johns. It is perfectly situated close to the...

I have to say I'm very biased toward this b&b. I've been coming here for the last 9 years annually and stay a month each time to enjoy chasing schooling fish. This is a wonderful place, quiet and well maintained. My room is well decorated and the staff are honest and great. I've stayed at a couple of other places...

I've stayed there for 3 weeks in 2011 and 2 weeks in 2008 and I'd happily go back there again. I just cant understand some of the reviews. A beatiful location with friendly, helpful staff and the brakfasts are excellent.

Have stayed here twice, each time for about 2 weeks, over the last 2 years. Reading some of the reviews, seems to me there have been some people with unrealistic expectations, just had a bad day, or perhaps they simply hadn't travelled very much - Port St Johns is not Provence. I have only stayed in the main rooms, and...

A very spacious property in a very scenic area. Just a short walk through their beautiful gardens you find a beach where the nearby river joins the Ocean. There is just an abundance of beauty. I am astounded by people complaining of how expensive it is although my stay was in 2006 and I am sure prices have gone up...

“One has the choice of B&B or self catering in a larger space. I recommend the latter for longer stays. The grocery shop is a short walk.”
