I stayed in Loerie Hide's Rondavel while attending a conference. Although I arrived after dark I could already tell I would be in for a spectacular view the next morning. And I was not disappointed. The Rondavel is confortable and private, and even boasts a private, raised deck. Breakfast was delicious and both the staff and owner, Sue, attentive and...

We stayed here for a night as we needed an early start in EL the following day. We arrived late evening and our host was more than happy to show us to our room down the numerous steps in the dark. We stayed in the african room which was a great size but as we stayed in June it was...

Lush, green fauna. Tropical bird sounds. Fresh, natural smells. And that's all experienced from INSIDE the rooms! Susie Rainer, Monica and the rest of the LH team is genuinely dedicated to providing personal care and attention to guests. Nothing is too much of an effort to them. I felt treated, revived and "special" again after my stay at Loerie Hide....

Be prepared for stairs, and lots of them. The parking is tight and the brick stairs a plentiful but it all adds to the character and ambiance of this place. There is work to be done here but you'll love the character here, it's like staying in a Roundavel with the thatched roof and jungle just outside your door. Love...

The Guest house maintains the flavor of Africa with Rondawal style units; well appointed and comfortable. The terraced grounds and gardens are adorned with a wide variety of flowering plants. The parking is very limited. There are lots of short flights of stairs from the main level if you are in one of the lower units. Sue and her staff...

We passed 2 nights in the guesthouse. We came as guests and left as friends. The stay there is in such a warm and nice atmosphere that we can not imagine that there is a better place in East London to sleep. We slept in the French room with a phantastic view and a splendid decoration.

We spent 3 fantastic nights at the B+B. Thanks to Tracey and the staff who made us feel very welcome. The day started off with a delicious breakfast sitting on a beautiful terrace. The room was very stylish. We enjoyed our sundowner on the balcony. Even our daughter had found a little friend, Bella the dog!

Not only an exquisite setting with beautiful views but top service as well. We would most certainly recommend The Loerie Hide to anyone passing through E.L or perhaps even a weekend away for a ''home away from home'' experience. The French room was a magical experience for my fiance and I. A big THANK YOU to Sue and her team...

We visited The Loerie Hide B&B for two nights, so that we could watch the Windies v. Proteas at Buffalo Park. Sue, Tracy and Monica make up a team that are friendly and professional, and this bed and breakfast is run like clockwork; there is nothing that is too much bother for them. We stayed in the Versailles Room, which...
