Nice and Pretty Guest House ^^
Beautiful Room / Well Decorated Guest House / Good Breakfast
We got picked up by the son of James from the airport, he explained us a bit about Port Elizabeth city and drove us near to a township because we told them we never saw any township yet :) Port Elizabeth is pretty safe city and Forest Hall Guest House is well decorate, room is beautiful and comfortable. It was rainy day when we arrived, but yet we felt great when we arrive to the guest house. On the next day morning, we saw they have a lovely garden as well. Breakfast was great too. I would definitely recommend this lovely guest house to everyone !

100% recommend Forest Hall!
CUSTOMER SERVICE, Beautiful decor and design of rooms, breakfast
Our stay at Forest Hall was incredible! The rooms are beautifully decorated, and it feels like staying in a friends home (who is a professional decorator) because they are so comfortable. What was even better then the beautiful surroundings and room of Forest Hall was the amazing owners. Not only did James pick us up from the airport, but he found us a place to eat dinner. The next day the breakfast was superb! We had a snafu with our rental car, and needed to stay another night. Forest Hall wasn't available, but James and Hillary called around for a long time to find us a place to stay...and then showed us where it was! So incredibly kind. Thank You so much James and Hillary!
