Good for business.

I spent two nights in this guest house and it was great. The room is very luxurious. The breakfast had a wide variety of cold and hot meals. The location is in the middle of everything. Would highly recommend.

Awesome place to stay at. Kim and the team are friendly and efficient. It’s like home away from home. Very neat and tidy. They are very accommodating.


Highly recommended.

We stayed at 36 on Bonza en Route to Port St. John’s from Cape Town. The staff were helpful and friendly and our room was chic and comfortable. We had everything we needed and more! We opted for a take away because we’d had a long journey and enjoyed relaxing in the bar while we waited for our meal to arrive. Definitely a first class stay and we can highly recommend this gem of a boutique hotel.

Hannetjie, Johannesburg, South Africa

Excellent venue for a stay over en route to a final destination.

We were welcomed by friendly staff and surprised with a cappuccino. The room was excellent and the wifi was effective. A dinner recommendation and reservation was made on our behalf.
Comfortable bed and ample parking on site. A vehicle is a must as no public transport is available in the area.
The honesty bar supplied all our needs.
The breakfast was excellent and the service really good.
A definite recommendation.

Kevin B, Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Paradise in East London.

This has to be one of the finest, must visit again B&B’s in South Africa. The rooms are excellent and the staff are the friendliest and most welcoming hosts one could ever wish for. The B&B is ideally located in Beacon Bay, close to several good quality restaurants and shopping centres. It is a quaint B&B and your hosts, will ensure that you are made to feel most welcome.
