    It’s probably the best place I’ve stayed in a long time, and added to that the hospitality and friendliness of the staff, I highly recommend conifer41. Also the best breakfast I can definitely say, so it’s a really nice place.

    I had a lovely stay here. Felt really at home. Bruce was incredibly welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure I had a lovely stay and an interesting time in Port Elizabeth. He even hosted a braai for his friends and the guests and that was a really lovely touch. Would definitely recommend!
