“Comfortable, clean, crisply delivered”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

I moved here at very short notice, and chose it, due in large part, to the highly responsive communications received in my search. I was completely satisfied. The owner, Marilyn, has clearly thought about what her guests might like to have, in terms of comfort and facilities. My double-bedded room was elegantly ‘New England’ in style, with a comfy bed, fine cotton bedding, with enough room for a small seating area and spacious en-suite, and came with complimentary toiletries, hospitality tray and ample fresh milk delivered daily whilst it was spotlessly cleaned. The very useable kitchenette had a good selection of crockery and cutlery, everything worked as it should, including the complimentary wired internet and satellite TV. Marilyn is welcoming and concerned for her guests comfort, helpfully researching elephant safaris, and visited me twice, firstly to check all was in order and I had the information I needed and then to find out how my safari adventure had gone. I whole-heartedly recommend Avocet, for quality, comfort, personal attention and value, if I return to Port Elizabeth, I will return to stay at Avocet.

If you're looking for excellent service, attention to detail and a beautiful location at a reasonable rate Avocet Guest House is the place to go. They have comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated rooms and offer breakfast, packed lunches and dinner. We had a great time! Thanks Marilyn!
