We stayed at Kowie River Guest House for 3 nights during our 3 week trip to Eastern Cape in October 2011. This is a fabulous guest house with the highest standards of facilities and service. The house takes maximum advantage of its river-side location. The view is beautiful. The room was extremely pleasant, crisp and clean with a really nice outside deck with good facilities to self cater. The beds are excellent and bathroom very pleasant indeed. Ditte is a very welcoming hostess and aims to go the extra mile to ensure that her guests have the best possible experience. She had done additional research in preparation for our visit and gave us the benefit of her knowledge of the town and the immediate area. Breakfast was the best we had during the whole of our vacation. Dale, produced a fantastic array of freshly made goodies with a wide variety of ingredients over our 3 day stay. Weather permitting, breakfast is served on the outside deck. A lovely start to the day. There is plenty of choice of restaurants in Port Alfred and a good selection of shops to self cater. The fresh fish market had very good fish though choice was limited due to the heavy seas. The Humphrey family is committed to ensuring their guests have a very enjoyable stay. Typically Dale offered to take Phil fishing one evening from the landing stage behind the house. We caught some nice fish, one of which was photographed by Ditte and a print was placed on the breakfast table the next morning. Outstanding personalised service! If you are visiting Port Alfred we would strongly recommend that you stay at Kowie River Guest House. We have not experienced anything as good anywhere in South Africa during 2 recent vacations!
