“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed in the honeymoon suite & it was fabulous. The chocolates and little extras made it something special.
James was a friendly host.
Tranquil surroundings, beautiful rooms and very nice breakfasts! I would definitely stay again.

We LOVE Forest Hall. The surroundings are tranquil and welcoming. The rooms have so many extras thought about caringly - welcoming sherry and chocolates, milk for tea, hot towel rails, candles for atmosphere and soft, clean linen. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and accommodating our 5 year old in the room with us. Best Regards, Beth Swanepoel

Our stay at the Forest Hall Guest House was (in one word) perfect! James kindly welcomed us even though we arrived well after the sunset, showed us our room and gave us all the required information. The day after, the breakfast was... awesome! It definitely was the best breakfast ever. The place is peaceful and the location is perfect - close to everything (a golf course, the coast and the Addo Elephant Park). Thank you James!

We decided to stay here for our last night in South Africa, having picked up a flyer when we were at Addo Elephant Park. Forest Hall is in a desirable residential area of Port Elizabeth, near the coast and very convenient for the airport. We booked a superior room and after a very efficient and informative check-in by the guest house owner, James, we discovered that the room was in fact a studio with a fully-equipped kitchen as well as a sitting area. The house and grounds were beautiful and if the weather had been kinder we would have been able to enjoy the pool area and the gardens. James recommended restaurants in the vicinity and we had a very good reasonably priced meal in one of them. The breakfast was extensive and freshly cooked, with several choices of hot and cold dishes. If we are ever in Port Elizabeth again, we would stay here without hesitation, hopefully for longer.

The Guest House was literally loved by my mother in law. All rooms were filled with all possible details: umbrellas ready for the rain, each light switch with a description and the furniture arrangement was a composition. The host was always helpful and friendly. I liked that his office was located at a visible spot and not hidden somwhere in the back.

This is a great place to stay, it is so quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very well appointed with everything that you will need, and the garden is lovely with huge trees and is the prefect place to relax. I was only sorry not to be able to spend more time there but cannot recommend it highly enough.
