Nice house, nice staff, beautiful place. It is so possible to come back to Port Elizabeth and Cape Flame, when I and my wife come back to South Africa and explore more places in the Garden Route. Thanks

We stayed just 2 nights, the service was great and the staff very friendly. Nice and quiet at night, clean comfortable rooms with quaint decor. Just off the main track with a selection of shops around the corner

Do not miss to stay in Cape Flame Guest House while you are at Knysna Lagoon area, exceptional and highly recommendable with very friendly and helpful people. This place is really unique and very convenient to the lagoon highlights.

I had an enjoyable stay for two nights on business to PE. Wouldve loved to stay longer. Maybe look into making breakfast from 6:30 instead of 7am as it is a bit of a rush to get to the other side of town by 8am, otherwise no other problems.

Vacation trip (two couples). We stayed only one night and felt like at home. Whatever we needed and requested was immediately fulfilled. Due to an early morning flight we had to leave before seven in the morning. She came in early just to prepare breakfast for us. Woaw! Keep up the superb quality and friendliness!

Clean and spacious room with bath. Located nice and quiet outside the city center, but still close enough for a walk (if you are the sporty type). The beach and a small shopping mall are just a 2 minute walk away. Friendly staff, breakfast is good but maybe a bit limited.
