Halyards Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Port Alfred
Reviewed 29 January 2014

WE didn't stay here but we visited twice for dinner and drinks. It's a relaxed, friendly hotel with a 'sports' bar and pool deck and the bar snacks are good value. It's not five star but, with four kids in tow who wanted to swim and relax, we found it perfect for our needs. The buffet dinner was excellent at only R85pp and the drinks prices were also good.
P.S location is good too, overlooking the quiet marina in Port Alfred.

We spent 3 nights at Halyards.
We loved the location at the marina.
This is a 3 star hotel but a very good 3 star.
You have aircon and a fair selection of TV channels.
Breakfast buffet is above average.
Dinner is also good.

Rooms are clean.

If you are gonna have laundry done there, beware it is expensive.
We paid R460 to have 5kg laundry done.

Spa staff ( separate business) are lazy and uninterested in serving guests and my wife had to try and book a facial 4 times and eventually gave up.

I can highly recommend Halyards for a value for money stay.
We will return.

We overnighted there in the height of the holiday season but the hard working staff still were able to be friendly and helpful. The room could do with a facelift but we were very happy with what we got, considering the price. If pressed, I would say they need to replace the wine/beverage cooler with a fridge and provide an outside table and chairs so we could relax outside the room and enjoy the view.

Having stayed here 7 years ago and found it very nice, we were dismayed to discover how far standards had slipped. The slow and inefficient staff were unwelcoming to the point of surliness, Our room had a lovely view, but was spoiled by being dark, having worn and cheap bedding, a faulty fan and a barely working shower. We could not use the plastic chairs on our terrace because of the dirt. The food was adequate, but that is all, and the dining room service was slow and unfriendly. There were safety issues i.e.missing and broken tiles on the walkways and an unrepaired hole in the tarmac outside our room. If we had not prepaid in full we would have checked out after the first night.

We had a nice stay at the Halyard Hotel. Unfortunately the spa closes very early. The breakfast has a good variety, but the staff could be a little friendlier and more professional, like greeting in the morning, they seemed very disinterested. On arrival we didn't feel really welcomed by the men who checked us in.

Room Tip: definitely take a room with the view to the marina.

Stopped there for lunch on Saturday 3 Aug 2013. Wonderful view, great food and very reasonably priced. The service was good and very friendly.

The menu very comprehensive and catered for all tastes.

Will definitely go back and recommend.

My husband and I spent 1 night at this charming hotel on a road trip holiday.
The setting is lovely and our room had a great view of the Marina.
Unfortunately the dining room was being renovated but the meals served in the bar area were tasty and sufficient.
We had a very reasonable dinner, bed and breakfast special.
