Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first experience of South African hospitality has set a very high bar; Hennie and Hayley are truly exceptional hosts. We had a huge, bright room that overlooked the gorgeous, well tended garden and swimming pool. There were teas and coffee supplied, along with an honesty fridge for midnight munchies. There is also a range of glasses, crockery and cutlery. There was a large, very comfortable bed with additional blankets, should the evenings get chilly. And a lovely sofa that was great for reading and relaxing on. The bathroom, as the rest of the property, was spotless and a selection of toiletries supplied. But what made this lovely property stand out was our hosts, they were so welcoming and happy to answer the thousands of questions we had; from how to find a certain trek, to a potted history of the country, suggestions of driving routes and where to get a wonderful meal. Oh and breakfast was excellent - fresh fruit salad and an option of a cooked meal, nothing was too much bother. We stayed two nights, but could,have stayed longer, just to get out a bottle of wine and chat with Hennie and Hayley.

Hennie & Hayley are fantastic hosts and the guest house is outstanding. They have thought of everything to make the stay as close to home as possible. Having an inverter means no annoying loadshedding interruptions and lights and wifi when you need them. The location is in an old PE suburb that feels safe and is a bit conveniently close to main arterials and good restaurants. Looking forward to my next stay over

We arrived in Port Elizabeth late in the evening prior to travelling to a safari. After 30 hours of travelling time, we were looking for a place we could relax and rejuvenate in prior to our next adventure. Millbury House was the perfect place. Hennie & Hayley were very helpful and accommodating. They happily shared their knowledge of the area and recommended areas we could travel safely to. The room was exceptional. We stayed in the Deluxe King room overlooking the pool. The grounds were well maintained as was the pool. Loungers and towels were provided. Breakfasts were very plentiful and delicious. It was truly a delightful place to stay and we would highly recommend it. We felt safe & secure at all times.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in March. Very welcoming couple / owners who clearly have plans to update the property and a new dining room extension was being built whilst we were there. Our room was quiet, spacious, a very comfy bed and has a kitchenette. Bathroom probably needs an upgrade. Load shedding was managed well. Easy to park and the accommodation and grounds felt very safe in a residential area. It was a 35 min drive (easy) to Addo elephant reserve, 10 mins to the waterfront / beach and 10 mins to the airport.

A great guesthouse with very friendly owners, who go out of their way to help out wherever they can. The rooms are very spacious with small kitchenette and large table, the beds are very comfortable - very large bathroom with shower and bath. All amenities are delivered. Breakfast is lovely and more than enough. We thank Hennie and Haylie for their hospitality, and whenever in the neighbourhood, we know the best place to stay now.

We were delighted to find the same high standard set by the previous owners, with changes made as required by the new conditions in travel requirements post-Covid. Not only is the guesthouse set in a very peaceful setting, but it also very conveniently placed for families of the Grey boys and patients in the nearby hospitals. From the welcome we received from Hennie & Hayley on arrival, to the call we received post-departure to arrange for collection of a small item left behind, we were made to feel like part of the family.
