The staff was the highlight of our stay here, always smiling and friendly. The guest house is well situated for airport access, but is a bit far from anything, so a car is a good idea. Rooms were clean and very spacious. Breakfast was simple, but had a decent selection of items. I'd avoid the dinner here, as ours was reheated in the microwave and quite disappointing. Wifi access is a tad pricey, and the 30/60 minute vouchers must be used all at once, otherwise your minutes will be lost.

In the past week(s) I just took my time to get to know the city, the students and of ...
We flew from Durban to Port Elizabeth where we spent the last 2 days with Matthew.
He wanted to do the shops to buy last minute gifts for his family.
We had been warned that P.E. was not somewhere to spend too many days and perhaps they were right.
The city had experienced torrential rain and ...
... kinds of stuff. Crisps that weren’t grill flavoured. Biltong everywhere. Soup in a can that wasn’t mushroom or tomato flavoured. This is the stuff that’s important, right? The little things.
I needed some tekkies (that’s sneakers to the rest of you). I found the kind I wanted but I couldn’t find my size. We had to go to a few shops ...
