Was a pleasant surprise getting to PE this time around and staying at Manor 38. For a business traveler who gets sick of staying hotel rooms this could be great option of feeling being at home. Enjoyed the hospitality and service.

When Port Elizabeth appeared on my travel plan, I decided to return to Manor 38, where I had been very happy staying before. It is situated two blocks from the coast, in a very quiet residential areas. But with all amenities of mundane coastal life on your doorstep. Very comfortable room, great value for money, spacious bathroom, but more than...

From the time of the booking it was easy and fast. with the needed information to find your way around the PE area and things to do in the area. Friendly, helpful and a feeling of being at home, when you are away from home. Safe and Central. Sure to stay at Manor 38 again.

There were lovely touches like being served coffee by the pool after arrival, finding...

The guest house was very good, and at the price I would rate it as excellent. The breakfast (which cost extra in our case) was fresh, tasty and well presented. All of the facilities are luxurious and well kept, the hostess and manager were both very friendly and helpful. I would happily stay here again.
