The atmosphere was warm and friendly. I had a steak that was just right with a pepper sauce that rounded it off perfectly. My brother was a little disappointed with the the pork ribs, but the fish was also very good. Finished the meal off with a chocolate cake and ice cream that hit the spot.

Reception by Laura very good. Rooms neat and clean. Bath condition very bad impression. Impression when approaching room not good. Maintenance of garden lacking. Apart from these general comments, we enjoyed our stay.

Delightful place to stay with our family of 5. Good location round the corner from our relatives. Husband and I had a double room - 3 boys had 2 rooms with a shared lounge/kitchenette next door to us which was just perfect!

Very pleasant surprise in coastal town. Great menu, superb service and value for money. Not to be missed. Unique decor with variety of interesting items on menu and staff very friendly and service orientated. Didn't mind leaving a sizable tip.

A nice, quaint venue which is tidy and most importantly, clean. The rooms are a little dark but well appointed. A very nice restaurant and pub sporting a balcony overlooking Port Alfred. A very relaxed environment and the beers are cheap!

On the plus side, like others, we found the service very good indeed - not only competent, but enthusiastic, and they went to extra lengths to make us feel special during our one night stay. The inhouse restaurant had an extensive menu for dinner, and a nice, inviting African decor. On balance, however, the negative outweighed the positive for us.... More

Whenever I plan on visiting Port Alfred the first place I call, to make a booking, is the Links Coastal Inn. On this occasion I took my mother along with me. We were accommodated in one of the self-catering inter-leading family rooms that the Links has on offer. My stays at the hotel are always immensely enjoyable, I cannot recommend... More

Our BMW Bike tour group stopped here for a night. Riding into Port Alfred was a nice surprise; east coast USA coastal type town. Link's was a perfect stop for us, after riding all day. We lucked out and were given the middle cottage in the back, which had a little kitchen, dining area, sitting area, nice size queen bed... More

“The Links has a couple of rooms outside the main establishment which appear to be lighter and bigger.”

“If you plan on bringing the family along with you, rooms eleven and twelve are great choices. They are the closest to the parking lot and have an inter-leading door which can be used to separate, or join the rooms together.”
