    Gorgeous view of Beautifull Port Alfred at night


Hospitality at its finest.

When I have gone away and stayed at a hotel or a B&B, I always refer to my place of stay as, "my room". Upon staying at The Lookout, I realised that "my room" is not appropriate. Instead, I had to refer to it as "home." The rooms are cozy and extremely comforting. The staff reinforces that sense of homeliness and they exude politeness. The breakfasts are amazing and the service all round was impeccable. I look forward to traveling to Port Alfred. My drive may be long, but I will always have a place to call home.

Fantastic stay!

My stay at the Lookout guesthouse was beyond great. The rooms were amazing and worked well for my electric wheelchair. The unit that we stayed in was beyond spacious enough for the movement of my wheelchair, this made everything comfortable.

The bathrooms were wide enough to allow space for bathroom use, the bedrooms were well spaced out as well as the unit was one level to allow ease of access. The facilities in the kitchen were low enough and easy enough for use. Additionally, access to the outside patio was made available as there was no bump to move over.

Should you need a place to stay that is accessible for an electric wheelchair as well as a manual one - with great service and a welcoming atmosphere - then the Lookout Guesthouse is the place for you.

The best B+B in town

If you are wanting to stay at the best B+B in Port Alfred, The Lookout is where you need to go. The food is on another level, the accommodation, service and most of all the views are just incredible!!! We will always go back to The Lookout, it is quite simply better than any other.



A Lovely Christmas Stay

We met up with our family the Lookout Guesthouse for Christmas in PA and had a most wonderful time. We made use of the bar and entertainment area for Christmas lunch and enjoyed the pool, the good weather and beautiful sea views. There was plenty of space to gather round and open presents and the well-stocked kitchens ensured we had everything we needed to make a big family meal. The comfy bed and the delicious breakfast provided by guesthouse was the cherry on top of our relaxing stay! The owners went above and beyond to cater to our needs and we really couldn’t have ask for more



Best coastal getaway around

My girlfriend and I have stayed at the Lookout many times and we have never once had anything short of an amazing time. The owner, Angela, is an incredible host - always very kind and generous. The staff are very friendly, and the dogs (three schnauzers) are adorable. The views from the guesthouse are incredible and the units are always spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and come with all the amenities and utilities you could need. We will definitely be back.



Lovely Lookout - highly recommended

Very tasteful and super comfortable accommodation with large rooms and all the amenities needed & more!! All this with an incredible view. Rod and Angela went out of their way to ensure our stay was exceptional in every way.

All round a first class guest house.

What a lovely experience!

We were thrilled to make the decision to stop over in port alfred and discover a hidden gem. We extended our stay for 3 nights and loved every minute. The rooms are huge with every amenity needed. The furnishings are tasteful, and quirky with great attention to detail. We were hosted by Angi who goes out of her way to make you comfortable. Delicious breakfasts are brought to your room to enjoy privately on your own balcony with the most amazing view of the sea , marina and Port alfred. Highly recommend this guest house. Good value for money as well

The place to stay in Port Alfred

We have been staying at The Lookout Guesthouse since we discovered it in early 2021 when my husband was doing business in the area.

Thanks to the comfortable rooms, tasteful furnishings and interiors, friendly hospitality and convenient location it has become our Home away from Home in Port Alfred.

The guesthouse has stunning views across PA to the Ocean and breakfasts are of special mention.

Highly recommend staying in this exquisite spot whether in town for business/pleasure or both.

Amazing, Family-friendly stay!

My family and I stayed at The Lookout over the December period. We had an amazing time! The rooms really feel like a home-away-from-home, with their warm and inviting decor and little extra touches. The food was amazing, and the little ones were endlessly entertained at the pool, while the adults enjoyed a drink at the little braai and bar on site. A truly amazing visit - Angie, you are a wonderful host and we cannot thank you enough! Will definitely be coming back :)

Absolutely gorgeous property.

We were blown away by how lovely our apartment was and the view was incredible. Very well equipped, super comfortable and great value for money! We all loved having a dip in the pool!! The perfect way to wake up in the morning was with the catered breakfast on our balcony, it was delicious and such a treat. Wish we had booked another night as we loved it in Port Alfred and the Lookout far exceeded our expectations. *Would highly recommend *

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!



This venue has the best view ever! Louise is always friendly and available to assist. We find the rooms very comfortable with all the necessary facilities for self catering. We have returned 3 times and find Unit 2 the best.

I'm lost for words describing the awesome service and the breathtaking view of the marina you get to experience when at the lookout guest house. I just want to say keep up the good work and thanks for welcoming us at your beautiful home.


This is an AT HOME B&B.with a most concerned lady of the house. Safe parking, the gardener washed my car without being asked!Great location, lovely view, very friendly owners and staff.

The Lookout is aptly named as it provides sweeping views over the Port Alfred marina development to the ocean beyond. It's also very convenient for the town centre and nearby restaurants, shopping mall, golf course, etc. This attractive property is very well maintained inside and out and we enjoyed a most comfortable 3 night stay. We particularly appreciated the high standard of cleanliness, the well equipped kitchenette and thoughtful little touches. Louise was most friendly and welcoming and we would have no hesitation in recommending The Lookout to anyone seeking high quality, good value accommodation in the area.

We loved staying here, it was so quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very spacious and clean with all the needed amenities. Everyone there are very friendly and welcoming, we felt right at home! The breakfast was a generous portion and delicious! Our favourite part was the view! Waking up to see the ocean and those huge waves...just Amazing! Will definitely come back here.
