“Thank you so much!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We stayed @ Manor 38 for one night at the end of our trip along the Garden Route. It is such a lovely place and we had a very nice room. And as if that was not enough Wendy and her team are the most wonderful hosts! When we came back from dinner they had decorated our room and left us a bottle of sparkling wine as it was our honeymoon trip. The next day when we left Port Elizabeth I realised that I had left a camera lens in the rental car. Unfortunately we were already on the plane to Johannesburg. I called Wendy to find out whether she had any experience with shipping goods to Europe. But instead of giving me any recommendations on what to do she sorted it all out for me! Called the rental car company, had the lens transferred to her place, prepared the shipping and sent it out. Before we were back from vacation my lens was already waiting for me. We are still absolutely blown away by the hospitality! Thank you SO much for everything!

Wish there was more to do in Port Elizabeth to justify a longer visit here. Lovely Property with Fabulous Rooms and a delightful owner and her dog The Breakfast is to die for. Would thoroughly recommend.

We spent two wonderful days of rest in Manor 38 after our Safari trip in Botswana. The atmosphere is very homelike there, people are very kind and friendly. Wendy helped us with our itinerary and gave advice on activities and organizational issues. Breakfasts are great, rooms are full of nice and pleasant things, such as sweets and two glasses of port in each room when we arrived there. The beds are very comfortable and the whole place is quiet, so we slept well. We enjoyed our stay very much and we would like to come back once again!

Manor 38 is located in Summerstrand which is one of the best locations in PE's. It is a safe area, which is close to the beach, the boardwalk, etc.. Our room was spacious and well attended and the staff friendly and attentative. Especially the glass of port in the evening was a nice touch. The Breakfast (bacon, egg, ...) and fresh fruit is delicious.

We stayed for just the one night in January, primarily to meet my girl friend from the airport after a long flight from Australia. From start to finish everything was perfect - location,welcome, room, directions/recommendations and a really excellent breakfast. The courtyard and pool area were compact, but ideal for relaxing for a few hours in the late afternoon. Highly recommended.

Many hotels should aim to achieve the levels of welcome, comfort and service that Manor 38 achieves. A great location in Summerstrand yet within 15 minutes of PE airport (but no plane noise at all). My wife, daughter and I booked two rooms for a night before flying back to UK. We were met by Christopher who took our cases to our rooms - on the ground floor by the pool - and brought us tea to the poolside table. Rooms are extremely well appointed with lots of personal touches, a flat screen TV and the quietist ceiling fan I've ever known.

We'd booked dinner in a local restaurant and Christopher phoned for a taxi for us. When we returned later, there were chocolates and glasses of sherry in our rooms.

Breakfast the next morning was served promptly at the time we'd asked for - and what a breakfast! I didn't know there were so many kinds of fruit, and the cooked breakfast was delicious. The manager, Wendy, sets extremely high standards and sat ANC chatted to us while we ate.

We had to leave after breakfast for our flight, but we could have checked out and stayed in the lounge at Manor 38 until we needed to leave. The room rate was very reasonable, and although breakfast is an extra cost this adds very little to the bill.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending a stay at Manor 38; it's outstanding. And no - I have no connection with the place, just a happy UK visitor.
