Dear Colette0826, it was an absolute pleasure to host you at the Victoria and Alfred , we are looking forward to host you again in December with a true South African braai in the Boma.
I have stayed at the Victoria and Alfred 3 times over the last 6 years, and it is wonderful to have Pat and John back, nothing is too much and they will give you great tips on what to do. The accommodation is in a quaint Victorian age with beautiful touches and decor. They even arranged for a scrumptious picnic basket when we went to Addo Game park just an hour away, after a full day game viewing in a hot car the swimming pool was a lovely welcome and time to cool off before having a pre dinner drink in the bar (Our favourite and worth trying if you never have before is Craft pink gin and tonic Dinner was well thought out we had 3 courses for R150 a steel and the bonus we did not have to go out. We spent the evening talking to John and Pat about our day at Addo and John suggested we do Historic Tour of Port Elizabeth which we thoroughly enjoyed. Settlers Park is across the road and has wonderful trails for walking. An amazing stay thanks to our wonderful hosts. The guest house is just 5 mins from the airport and the gorgeous blue flag beaches around Port Elizabeth, there is a secure car park at the back of the accommodation and we even got our car washed as a surprise before we left - Thank you to all the staff for making our stay perfect. I look so forward to going back next year and seeing the upgrade plans John let us into.
Thank you for your positive review after staying at the Victoria and Alfred Guest House. It was only a pleasure to host you and we are delighted that you have enjoyed your dinner and special picnic basket. We cannot wait to have you back in the near future in our new and upgraded establishment.
PS: When you return remember to ask about our new and exciting Bay City Tours with a amazing picnic at Schoenmakerskop.
The V&A Team.
Without a doubt, I will definitely stay at the Victoria & Alfred Guest House again. So quiet and relaxing. The staff were exceptionally professional and friendly and the room was extremely comfortable and has everything one needs.
Very poor service from check in. Staff were not friendly and welcoming upon arrival. Room were cold and not clean at all. dirty marks and blood stains on duvet cover. The shower have horrible mould and unhygienic. The guesthouse looks tired and needs serious attention.
A nice clean airy room. The best was a delightful staff member who washed my car and noticed I had a flat tyre. He came and found me at breakfast and offered to changed the tyre in the rain. Very heart warming to know there are such kind people around.
Disaster from the word go.
our check-in was confusing and staff could not/would not find our booking and then claimed we had not made a reservation.
dinner staff were exceptionally rude and unwilling to accommodate a late arrival.
Rooms and Bathrooms were terribly dirty.
Staff were on the whole rude, antagonistic, unwilling to assist and unprofessional.
Will never recommend and last time we will ever use this place.
