    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!

    The owner was outstanding. Really went out of his way to help me, plus has great taste in music. Definitely felt like a home away from home.
