I had a very pleasant stay - stayed in the garden room.
Comfortable, clean and affordable with a Continental breakfast.
Suggest including a muffin or croissant.
Good location, easily accessible, friendly host.

The guest house was excellent in all quality of services with the owners being as friendly and helpful beyond all expecations.It is a seven minute ride from the airport and about a ten miniute drive from Walmer shopping mall and totally traffic free and a nice quiet area.It is a must go if in PE!

After a very dissapointing first night of stay in PE at a nearby hotel, our first task for the day was to ensure that we had good, clean accomodation for the rest of our stay. We were delighted with the central location of the guesthouse, friendliness and helpfulness of the owners, Madeleine and Fraser, the obvious cleanliness of the rooms, reasonable rates, as well as the hairdryer, bar fridge, tea and coffee, DSTV, ironing board and iron, that were nice additions- all of which helped make the rest of our stay in PE a very pleasant one. A continental breakfast is on offer although some people might prefer an English breakfast. I highly recommend River Road Guest House to anyone looking for a home away from home in PE and it will certainly be our accomodation of choice when we visit PE in the future.
