We had a wonderful time in Albatros Guesthouse. Perfect view , we could see whales from our outdoor breakfast table. Bessie is a great and warm-hearted host, she was helpful in every respect; she even allowed us to keep her husbands binoculars for the next day to watch the whales. The warm breakfast and fresh baked bread was exceptionally good. Thanks Bessie, we really enjoyed our stay and we hope to come back soon. Best regards from our whole family

The best place to stay in Ramsgate, the rooms is perfect and you get the best sea view from your balcony. The staff and owners makes you feel like you are family and the breakfast is delicious

Attending National Children Day has been one of the most important events in the governments calendar, but what makes it special is the hospitality and the environment that accomodates them. on Arrival we got the best treatement one can ever think of, we have been to many provinces and towns on attending this day, let me tell you this year it was extraordinary in terms of accomodation, humanity, friendliness from the staff and the owners. Rooms are clean, well organized and smell good. one of the most important key factors to note is that owners play an important role in the runningf of the Guesthouse their approach and the manner in which they treat their customers was excellent. i had an experience of engaging withthem and to be honest with you they made my stay worthwhile, we were like a family to them it was so hjard to leave the place or say goodbye. the site seeing of the beach view, the bedding, DSTV and the clean yard with great employees was a superb experience. We have decided to pay a visit once more on our won in December because of the treatement we got. i would rate Albatros as one best Guest house in Port Shepstone/ or KZN. i have eevn invited colleagues and friends to tour and explore this place. Albatros was like a home to me it opened my eyes to reality and gave me an opportunity to learn and aspire. Viva Albatros Viva Number one. Thank YOU*

Wonderful views of the ocean and whales are mixed with warm hospitality. Andre & Bessie go out of their way to help however they can - the Albatros is so good we are visiting again this March!

I know this has taken me a while but this is due to my being at other holiday accommodation. The Albatross Guest House is by far the best that I have been to. It has a homely yet romantic feel and that is exactly what my partner and I were looking for when we went to stay there. Bessie and Andre (the guest house owners), are just so sweet as hosts and as acouple. They have outdone themselves. I'm looking into going back there later on this year and I'm really looking forward to it. The view i had in Room No 4 was AMAZING (the weather wasn't great but even that made staying in doors so enjoyable). My boyfriend isn't teh travelling type but after being at the Albatross he wanted to go to other places. Yes we went and realised we should have just gone back to Margate. We will definately go back and will stay for longer...
