This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in, and coming from someone who stays in many hotels... this accolade is well-deserved.
I only have one small complaint, and it's due to a technicality in communication with reception staff. I booked a room with twin beds, as I was travelling with my mother. When i checked in, the room allocated to us had one large bed. Turns out you can't just say 'twin beds'... according to the receptionist (Candie, I think) you have to specifically ask for the twin beds to be 'split' (all the 'double' beds have twin bed bases and can be split out). So if you want 2 beds, you can't just say 'give me twin beds' - you have to say 'split the twin beds out'. Ridiculous, i know. I was also informed by her that the reason they hadn't seen my 'special' request in the first place was because i added it to a comments section that they 'don't normally check'. There you have it.
Other than that issue (which was very quickly and efficiently sorted out by Brenda, the duty manager), I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay. The staff in this hotel are lovely and will go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay - their service is amazing. The room was fantastic, and the location is perfect. It's pricey, but it's worth every cent.

Excellent self catering appartments close to centre and the cricket ground.
Genuine appartment with generous lounge kitchen area, bedroom and small study area.
I stayed on a first floor flat at the rear for one night and on a third floor at the front for a return visit. Get the lower levels at the back if you can - flat at front was very hot and suffered from traffic and Saturday night drunk noise problems.

We had no expectations but the Port Elisabeth stay at Manor 38 was a highlight of our 22 day SAfrican trip. Everything was well done - great rooms and lounge areas, nice pool, security, attentive staff and manager. No-fuss help with tour and dining issues. The breakfasts and nightcaps were superb.

Stayed at this guesthouse for one night and was very pleased with it. All the rooms face the pool in the centre but didn't have any problems with noise or privacy. The room has everything you need and was very clean. Each room is accented with a specific colour scheme and the attention to detail is nice. The hosts were funny and very personable and clearly enjoy what they are doing. Located a little ways away from the airport and downtown Port Elizabeth but not far off the N2 if you're heading towards Addo Elephant National Park. Would have liked to have stayed longer.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week trip travelling the Garden Route. The hotel is quite simply stunning. Everything is to an exceptionally high standard, the rooms were large and spacious with a private garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful, I felt nothing was too much or a problem for them. The food in the restaurant was delicious, so much so we ate there both nights. The spa session I had was bliss. And we even took advantage of the private cinema/theatre to watch a movie (while eating our desserts and a bottle of wine). Would definitely stay here again.

We only stayed one night but recieved a warm welcome and for sure will go back again. Had a cozy suite room as we stayed with our adult son. Food was great and hosts wonderful. Lovely garden and bar area. Very charming. Even hosted two resident owls in the garden.
