We only stayed at the Lookout one night but were very impressed with both the accommodation and the warmth of the welcome from Louise. She went out of her way to be helpful, everything was handled with great efficiency, the rooms were beautiful and breakfast delicious.

Beautiful accommodation. Warm friendly hosts. Amazing touches that make you feel so welcomed and looked after. The pictures online were great and accurate. We had a great stay. The guesthouse is close to amenities but in a great location so still quiet. Highly recommended. Loved it.

We needed somewhere to stop over in Port Alfred as we were travelling from Cape Town to Durban. I'm so glad I decided to stay over here. Accomodation was very spacious, clean, well maintained and the lady running the place was very helpful and advised us on a great restaurant called the Wharf Street Brew Pub. She also went out of her way by accomodating some of our additional request. Also they were not stingy with the milk which is much appreciated. Breakfast was also good. Overall I wouldnt think twice about staying over here again.

Clean, neat, welcoming and what a view. Staff are very accommodating and eager to please the customer. Port Alfred has interesting sites and places to visit. Good nights rest and an excellent breakfast. Will go back.

This is an excellent place to stay. We only stayed for one night on our way to the Transkei, but a longer stay in this comfortable guest house would be a pleasure. The attention to detail, luxurious bedding and towels and sumptuous breakfast was really impressive. And the views are wonderful.
