Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Our stay at kowie river guest house was nothing short of fantastic. From check in to check out we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are beautiful and functional, with every whim catered for and spectacular views! The breakfast was a real treat, prepared by the host, Dale. We only wish we could've stayed longer!

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in our comfortable, tasteful designed and decorated room. Our host, Dale with his suburb breakfasts and his attention where much appreciated. This was one of the best stays we had on our seven week trip round South Africa.

Room Tip: There are four room which look out over the river. All are excellent.

Our family stayed at the Kowie River Guest House recently, using it as a base from which to explore the Port Alfred/Bathurst area. We were very impressed with our host Dale; not only was he really efficient as 'front desk manager', but he was also a true revelation in the kitchen, cooking up two very memorable breakfasts for our family. We enjoyed the well-appointed family room; although it did not face the Kowie River, this did not detract from the experience since the weather was not perfect, and we could still quite easily walk the river frontage area and enjoy the natural surroundings. We left feeling refreshed and contented. This establishment deserves the full 5 stars!

This is a lovely guest house run by lovely, and very helpful people. We had a large, modern, well equipped and comfortable room with a great view over the Kowie River. Super breakfast and Port Alfred has some great, sandy beaches

The Kowie River Guest House surpassed all our expectations. Situated beside the River Kowie, it enjoys wonderful views and makes a great base for exploring the area. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The piece de resistance had to be the breakfast - the best we had throughout our stay in South Africa.

Almost hesitate to recommend this guest house - would like to keep it a secret! It is amazing! The rooms, views and breakfasts are superb. Dale is a wonderful host and chef - nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for 4 nights and were very reluctant to leave. Next time we shall be there for much longer. Easy walk into town.

Room Tip: Choose one of the 3 rooms overlooking the pool and river - the views are amazing!
