Arriving at the electric wooden car gate you wouldn't have a clue what is behind it. As the door opens you are greeted with a park like setting .... beautiful. The rooms are quite large and a gorgoues Victorian tub awaits you in a well appointed bathroom. We normally put our bags down and head out to explore the town (we only had one night here) but this place was so inviting we just stayed on the property. All staff offered fabulous service- happy, kind and attentive. We had one of our best dinners here. our waiter was fantastic and the food was spectacular- no rush to go anywhere. The breakfast I would also say was 5 stars. lots of yummy choices which was a surprise in a small establishment.
We left after spending 14 hours here refreshed and ready to continue our journey.
As far as Port Elizabeth is concerned, the people are very friendly and welcoming, but the city isn't very exciting. The main road along the ocean needs some warming up . We walked through the board walk and the place seemed like a ghost town maybe we just missed the rush. Richmond Hill had quite a few high end restaurants that looked very inviting. I would check that out if you are there for an evening.
