“Best there is in Port Alfred”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Excellent Hospitality. The hosts really went out of their way to look after our every need.
We really appreciated the special touches such as home grown fresh herbs that were freshly picked and beautifully presented for us to use during our stay. A fruit dish filled with delicious fresh fruit and a welcome drink awaited us on our arrival. And of course the daily delivery of the newspaper every morning.

We really enjoyed the decor, the spaciousness and the beautiful views. It really set the mood for a relaxing, enjoyable break.

We're so glad you had such a comfortable and relaxing stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed our garden herbs, welcome drink and newspaper delivery. Our golden retriever Chester is getting really good at his paper delivery services to our guests. We hope to welcome you back here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Richmond House for 10 days over December 2013 in Sandymount Cottage. The accommodation is beautiful and comfortable. It s a heritage property with has been authentically and carefully restored. The cottage is situated a short distance from the main house and is both peaceful and private.

We had a wonderful stay. The hosts are fantastic, always helpful. The accommodation stunning. a Very special place indeed. Superbly renovated in very good taste and definitely the 4-star rating worth. The garden is tranquil and the boma is really something unexpected.
