“Comfortable, well equipped, excellent service.”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I have stayed a a few establishments in the Summerstrand area - and Algoa Guest House is by far the best I have been to. The owners are friendly and welcoming, everything is clean and neat, and the high-speed WiFi really works. The bed is enormous and comfortable. The substantial breakfast saw me through most of the day, and on my last day I didn't even bother to make my lunch for the day. I highly recommend Algoa Guest House, and I will certainly stay there again.

This is a very comfortable and good value for money guest house with pleasant views overlooking the sea....it is a short bus/taxi ride from the V & A centre. Rooms are of good quality and I would stay again.

What a great service from Algoa..It all started with the booking. Friendly Lisa offering us the different accommodation alternatives Algoa Guest House had. My reservation was confirmed immediately after fulfilling our obligation.
The reception on checking in was great. The facilities were absolutely clean and comfortable. The breakfast was homely.
We have found a new home at Algoa Guest House with our son and daughter doing their studies at NMMU this is definitely not our last stay there...
