This was the second time we stayed at the Lookout in past three months and it really the only place to stay in Port Alfred. The location is superb, set up above the marina with wonderful 180* views out to sea. We stayed in Apartments 2 & 3 s/c units and they all have the same great attention to detail....

Everything was perfect. We had arrived on a bit of a gloomy weekend but there was no reason to even leave our room everything was absolutely fantastic. From the view to breakfast. Everyone was very friendly. Apartments are spacious and has everything you could want for a quiet weekend away or even longer stay to explore the area.

Wonderful accommodation with all the amenities I needed as I prefer self catering facilities. The view was magnificent and the area extremely peaceful. It was also near everything Just a pity it was only for one night.

The lookout guest house is not only beautiful, it is also conveniently located. The hosts were amazing and completely understanding which made our stay even more worth while. They provide BBQ facilities and adequate space to relax and enjoy the view of the city. Would definitely recommend.

Warm, friendly and clean. All the things one would expect at home, in this great guesthouse. My 5th stay here, and I will be back again. Would still love to take the family with, but to date it was only business travels taking me there. Lovely breakfasts!

Stayed at the guest house for one night. The room was very nice with everything you need. Nice sherry and warm drinks was available. The bed was comfy and shower was nice. I will definitely return to the guest house. It is a must.
