“Great Place”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

We stayed overnight before flying out the next day. Manor 38 is a beautiful place to stay. The room was unusually elegant, breakfast was wonderful. Note that its not cheap.

This guest house caters for the business person as well as the traveller. Even though they don't provide dinner, their breakfast options are wide and varied and would suit most health-conscious people.

The rooms are spacious and I was fortunate one of the rooms facing the pool area which gave you a sense of privacy away from the main guest house.

A real gem!!

Room Tip: If you prefer a complete private space, ask for the room opposite the pool area.

Stayed one night before flying from PE airport: this is a beautifully designed and efficiently run establishment in the nicest bit of PE. The staff are charming and extremely helpful.
Only 10' from the airport.
Security arrangements are impressive as are the room fitments, flat-screen TVs etc.
We'd happily have stayed longer.

Stayed just two nights at Manor 38 but would gladly return. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff - they helped me find a local dentist, for example, and answered any questions - and a brilliant room with everything you need, including an extremely comfortable bed. I can't recommend it highly enough. I noticed another reviewer thought it expensive: when I stayed the pricing was extremely competitive considering the location - It's just a few blocks from the shore and there's a supermarket/cafe/a few shops down the street, yet it's very quiet at night - and the facilities.

Great rooms and a very professional service. However, we did feel our 1 night stay was overpriced compared to other SA hotels, particularly given breakfast wasn't included

We only stayed here briefly, but can find no cause for complaints whatsoever.
Monya welcomed us very warmly and was helpful with information about the area and where to eat.
Our car was washed and polished while we were resting in the beautiful room.
The house is very nicely designed and decorated and the beds supremely comfortable.
Service was superb throughout our stay including provision of a freshly packed breakfast to take with us as we left very ealy in the morning for a flight from PE airport.
As the aiport is so close I would certinaly recommend Manor 38 as a great place to either start or finish your trip.
The Boardwalk, as mentioned is about 15 - 20 mins walk and the beachfront itself is only 5 minutes away.
