Sheilan house gave us a very warm welcome.The staff(owners and cleaners) were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to couples/families wanting some alone time. A caution if the sight of lizards makes you squimish:)

Thank you for your kind review. We are sorry that our little geckos worried you but unfortunately they are an integral part of our eco system and virtually impossible to catch. Hope they won't put you off visiting again!

Sheilan House has now been christened the House of Excellence - a reflection of her remarkable hospitality and splendid service. There is, indeed, room for improvement, particularly in the area of providing home-bound (indoor) activities and entertainment - games such as chess and scrabble for holidaymakers.

This is a good choice for somewhere to stay in Port Alfred. The rooms are modern and well appointed and brightly coloured, each with its own small garden. Very comfortable. It is only a B&B but there is a restaurant within walking distance for dinner..

4th time we've stopped here and won't be the last. As always Joan and Mike couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Lovely big rooms; recently redecorated and all you need for a self-contained stay. Great breakfasts; the best "full English" on the Eastern Cape we reckon! Just a short walk or drive to the beach and very well located...
