We spent a night here on route from Knysna to Port Alfred. We had a family apartment two rooms, bathroom, kitchen and it was certainly a great solution for family accommodation. The room was very clean and had kettle, microwave, fridge and was very close to the beach, shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Very good location for the beach and restaurants

This guesthouse was a wonderful place to stay. There were modern facilities and comfortable beds. The owner met us on arrival and was very accommodating! Close to the beach and the casino. Safe neighborhood.

Very convenient location, great service from James and outsourcing the breakfasts to a local coffee bar is a fantastic idea. We even had supper there. We enjoyed everything and would certainly stay at Splash again.

thank you for your hospitality and undestanding when we requested for change in accomodation, breakfast vouchers are much apprciated also, we really enjoyed our stay and wouldnt hesitate to book with the guesthouse again when we come to summerstrand- please pay attention to the curtains and do improvements on them(transparent at night and a bit dirty), overall the guesthouse is great.

Hi Etumaleng,

Thanks for your feedback :-) The curtains were a little faded from the sun and a little see-through. As soon as I read your review, I changed the curtains to ones with block-out lining and they are much better! Thanks for pointing it out!

The place is brilliant. We arrived early from Cape Town and James allowed us into the room early (just before 8am !) to get some sleep. The self catering family room was fantastic with everything you could want for self catering. Plenty of parking and great gardens for the kids to play. We liked that the were close to a shopping complex for extra goodies (within walking distance). And the breakfast deal they have with a local coffee shop is a total MUST! Oh yes, the beach is right there as well. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We came to South Africa from the UK to do the Ironman. We were late in looking for accommodation so a friend living in SA made the booking on our behalf. From the minute the booking was made we received first class service from the proprietor, James, who moved people around to fit us in.
When we arrived at Splash we were made to feel very welcome and the accommodation itself was outstanding. The room was spacious, bright and clean and the decor was just to our taste. The room was was mainly white with splashes of blue and red, and is perfect for the sea side resort of PE.
The owners were very hands on and the staff were attentive to our needs.
All in all we had a amazing visit to PE made even more special by the staff and facilities at Splash. We will be staying there again for next years Ironman and I would recommended it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in PE be it for business, sport or just for a holiday. 10 out of 10.
