My husband and I have stayed at 50 College Drive Bed and Breakfast a number of times and have never been disappointed. The old house has been lovingly restored by Jonny to its former glory and the beautiful yellowwood woodwork gives the home a wonderful warm feeling. The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms beautifully redone. The breakfasts are delicious and relaxed. The house is centrally situated and close to a major shopping centre, hospital, restaurants and easy access to the beach. Jonny and Nanette are wonderful hosts and make all their guests feel at home. I would highly recommend anybody passing through Port Elizabeth to make this their stopover destination.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 50 College Drive is a beautiful Cape Dutch Style house which has been lovingly renovated and restored to more than its former glory. This is truly a home away from home to suit the traveler who prefers a cosy homely atmosphere to an impersonal hotel, the corporate who wants to come home to relax after a long day at work, out of town hospital visitors, school sporting events supporters, holiday makers and many more.We have secure off street parking under antique street lamps on cobblestone paving, set among our semi-circular rose-garden and rockery. Enjoy a full English breakfast served in the the open-plan yellow wood kitchen/dining area which opens onto a wooden pool deck and braai area. If you prefer, breakfasts can be served in your room or out on the deck on a summers day. House: We have three spacious en-suite bedrooms, all tastefully furnished with super comfy Queen, King and Twin beds, made up with Percale linen. Each bedroom is equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, TV with DSTV channels (B & B bouquet), tea and coffee making facilities, heaters and hair-dryers. Our bathrooms are beautiful and have walk-in frameless showers, while two of them also have stunning Victorian baths. Family Cottage: This newly built modern family unit consists of 2 bedrooms sleeping 4, which are separated by the open-plan fully equipped granite topped kitchen/dinette. The bathroom (shower only) is en-suite from the main bedroom. A flat screen TV with the B & B DSTV bouquet can swivel between the kitchen and main bedroom. Location: We are centrally situated in the up-market suburb of Mill Park. Everything in Port Elizabeth that you could need is a 1 – 10 minute drive away, including Grey High School, St Georges and Greenacres and Provincial Hospitals, P.E. Golf Club, P.E. Airport, Greenacres and Walmer Park shopping Malls and cinemas, top restaurants and the Beachfront, to name but a few. Other venues close by include The Boardwalk and Casino complex, the Opera House, Feathermarket Hall, and the new 2010 Soccer World Cup Stadium which is about 3 km away.
