Reviewed 4 May 2014

Lovely bed and breakfast with old world charm and fantastic friendly service from Nanette and her team. Large well appointed rooms. Relaxed living areas with outside braai area and pool. A home from home. Centrally situated. The added bonus is real coffee in the rooms. Highly recommended.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

Unfortunately my stay was not a holiday however the 50 College Drive B&B was recommended to me by a friend and what a great choice. Nanette, Jonny and their staff were extremely helpful, pleasant and certainly go out of their way to ensure that my stay was a home away from home experience. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Location is excellent and the property is immaculately clean and tidy with attention to every specific detail. Will definitely stay there again and will be most comfortable in recommending to all friends and business colleagues. Thanks for a wonderful 5 nights.

We boled up at the front of 50 College Drive B&B on spec. They not only accommodated us straight away but also provided useful information about where to go and eat and which bit of the beach to to to make the most of the rest of the sunshine that day! We were more than impressed with the room, the shower room and the breakfast. All in all a place that should not be missed! Thanks to Nanette and John

Our Gauteng Nationals Co-ordinator had to find accomodation for 38 of us for Nomads 49th National Tournament being hosted by Port Elizabeth Golf Club, a mere 750m from 50 College Drive. Fortunately myself and 4 other competitors from Gauteng were allocated to this address. Nanette and her staff (Including Jonny, her husband) went out of their way to make our stay most enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I would definitely recomend them to all and sundry.

I have just returned from a 9 week trip to wonderful South Africa. One of the undoubted highlights was my 6 week stay in the 2 bedroomed cottage at 50 College Drive. The facilities (2 bedrooms, 1 with a double the other with 2 singles; fully equipped kitchen; huge shower and w/c; TV with 9 different channels, most of which are from the DStv service; full security system; access to the plunge pool and huge braai area) were excellent. Modern, spotless and very well maintained by the friendly and highly efficient maid, Gladys, who, for example, was happy to do my washing, for a nominal fee, on more than one occasion.

The owners, Nanette and Jonny, were the most helpful and friendly hosts you could wish for. Nothing was too much trouble - any minor issue (eg. arising in the wake of a local power cut) was typically addressed within minutes. They even went out of their way to make me feel welcome and at home by inviting me to join them for a braai on Christmas Eve.

I wanted somewhere to call 'home' during my trial run in PE (I'm planning to move there later this year) and the cottage at 50 College Drive ticked every box and more. Hopefully I'll have the chance to stay there again ... just hope there's room for me once potential visitors read this review !!!

Thanks again Nanette, Jonny and Gladys

Room Tip: For those looking for a 2 bedroomed self-catering option, the cottage is excellent value for money...

........and that's no lie. Fabulously well-maintained and overflowing with a palpable grace and welcome. This is one B&B I will keep returning to. Nanette is a charming hostess and runs the B&B to the utmost, exacting standards for your comfort.
