          Port Alfred stay over”

          Gem of a place that we happened upon as we had to stay over in Port Alfred. Loved the couches and benches outside the hotel next to the river, could sit there all day. Staff very helpful and clean facilities. Will definitely recommend the hotel to all and sundry. Could up parking security as had to park outside in the parking lot with no security.

          Great accommodation for family getaway ”

          We had a lovely 2 night weekend stay at MyPond Hotel. The room was spacious and had the necessary facilities. The fridge was not properly cleaned and the shower could have done with a good scrubbing, but we were very happy in the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful and accommodated our requests.. The food at the restaurant was delicious, we had breakfasts and dinners there. On the one night the cutlery at our table was not particularly clean and had to be replaced. Overall we have a lovely stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away to relax

          Located right on the rivers edge and within walking distance of all the great restaurants Unfortunately the hotel did not have the room available that we had booked ( due to a water leak ) but managed to find us alternative rooms Staff were friendly and helpful Not quite sure of it should still be rated a 4 * - but still excellent value. Wifi was temperamental at best!

          Great Hotel, but breakfast was a disaster ”

          We really enjoyed the beauty of the hotel, rooms and location. The staff went out of their way to serve us well in the afternoon and evening dinner time. We made friends with a German couple also staying in the hotel. So we enjoyed afternoon sundowners with them and decided to have dinner together. However breakfast was a total disaster and ultra embarrassing. The waitress was sullen and seemed irritated. The Manageress was just as unhappy. My partner requested to add an extra ingredient in her omelette and her request was treated so poorly, the waitress said NO, and she called the Manageress who also said no. I suggested they charge me extra for the onions my partner requested in her omelette. Then they agreed. At check out they refused to charge, but the damage was done They insisted of taking a juice order, but I insisted that they bring out the juice for us to see and decide. Reluctantly they did.... we did not make a noise because our German friends were staying for 3 more nights and didn't want to make things unpleasant for them. The breakfast offering was adequate.... the Trainee who served us the day before was exceptional

          Poor Hotel”

          Booked and paid for a luxury, smoking room with balcony. Only to discover that the hotel does not in fact have any smoking rooms, nor did they have any suites available. No management available to discuss our problem, so we asked for a refund and took our business elsewhere.

          Great Veiws over Kowie River”

          Staff was very welcoming and friendly. Everything was very clean and we got more than what we expected. It was lovely to sit on the terrace and watch the boats go by. Very tranquil setting. The views from the rooms over the river was also great. We enjoyed our stay and the restuarant food was very good too. I would recommend it.

          We did get value for money but the Hotel was exceptionally noisy. The guests made noise way past midnight and then up at 5.30 again so we didn't get rest. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Many Thanks to the staff.
