Need to get away from it all? this is the place for you. Great breakfast, with a fantastic view of the estuary. My wife and I really loved it. It's one of the most beautiful places in South Africa to visit and that's coming from a local South African. Well worth the visit.

Good location, very close to the beach & canals. Room light & clean. Breakfast was excellent, sharing a communal table with other guests, creating a friendly atmosphere. On our list for a future return.

Accommodation and breakfast excellent. Ann very helpful in giving advice, booking restaurant for us, etc. Only place we stayed in SA where we were served freshly-squeezed orange juice at breakfast! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location and views. Some tissues in the bedroom/bathroom would have been appreciated.

Good hosts at this small and cosy B&B. Lovely breakfast and good welcome with tea and shortbread! ST Francis Bay was quiet in February but relaxing. Recommended as a stopping place between Port Elizabeth and the Garden Route.
