Guest Reviews

  • Fantastic. We stayed at the Lookout over the festive season. We are a large family group(seventeen in total), and were accomodated in five different units. The view over Port Alfred is spectacular. Our hosts, Rod and Ange, was really warm and hospitable. The units are well equipped, with comfortable beds, and clean cotton linen. We will definitely come back. The Lookout is a gem!

  • Excellent accommodation & lovely hosts. As suggested by the name the views over Port Alfred are excellent. Our accommodation was light and airy with masses of room . Everything provided for self catering needs. There is a nice little pool to cool off in when the weather is hot!
