    Nice guesthouse but disappointing

    Forest Hall guest house is located in a beautiful area of Port Elizabeth and has a huge and amazing garden. It's secluded and very pleasant. The room itself was very big' with a kitchen and all amenities. The hosts are lovely people. Breakfast was ordinary but goog enough. The things that disappointed us were: The place is very old and worn down and needs urgent remodeling. Level of cleaness low - sheets came with stains and many ants on kitchen counter.

    First night of our Garden Route tour.

    After a trying day, we were made most welcome by David on our arrival. He gave us a lovely room, suggestions on where to have dinner and information on the Garden Route.

    My family and I loved it! the rooms/apartments are around a big garden that really looks like a forest. Our room was like a loft with everything we needed. Staff and owners were very kind and ready to receive us and the other guests. Everything was perfect!

    The place is beautiful and has excellent facilities including two lovely pools and a tennis court. The staff were lovely, breakfast was amazing and the rooms really cute. The only thing was the fan was a bit slow so it was a little hot when we got there but it cools down nicely in the evening.

    Forest Hall is in a spacious, quiet, and peaceful setting, and you will be pampered during your stay by the guesthouse owners. The room is stocked with amenities like an iron, hair dryer, complimentary sherry and water and chocolates, and much more. Breakfast in the morning is also lovely and the dining room is like eating at a high-end restaurant.
