Recent guest reviews

We stopped here for a buffet lunch. The hotel is in the old dock area and there was plenty of activity with small scale boats. So the location is good for a stop-off. [there isn't much else in Port Alfred] The lunch buffet was well provided but very crowded with parties and it was a bit of a struggle at times to serve one's self. Nevertheless, the food was good and the attendant service pleasant.

As discussed on the previous page. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and helpfull but the rooms are in a very bad condition. There is a lot of dampness on the walls which gave us terrible sinus.The bathrooms were not nice - the bath tub had yellow stains on it and the shower is very small. We could not shower as the water pressure was so low that you could not rinse yourself. Worst Shower I had at any accommodation. The carpets was so dirty that we could not walk barefoot as my children's feet got black walking bearfoot on the carpets. The rooms have a smell due to the dampness. When I picked up the basket holder that holds all the booklits the bottom of it fell off and all the booklits fell through. TV connector not working properly as the TV showed 'snowflakes'. Overall if it was not for the nice food it wouldn't have been a nice experience. Won't stay at the Halyards again.

I was there for a work conference, the facilities we used were very good. the three course meal served at lunch time was top notch and the staff were very friendly, my room was very spacious and comfortable.

People was very frienly and help full specialy accommodate my husband with the wheel chair went out of there way to make the stay nice and comfortable. Rooms are big and very nice and clean. Supper was very good and breakfast was conclusive in the price that made it very affordable. Food was a lot

A comfortable stay surrounded by a beautiful canal-side setting. Central and accessible and staff are friendly. Rooms and bathrooms could be slightly updated, but accommodation is clean and comfortable.

The Halyards Hotel ,a home away from home, has done it once again! From arrival to departure I was greeted and professionally assisted with efficient service and bright smiles. I had a most enjoyable and comfortable stay in this beautiful hotel with its great views over the river. This hotel surely feels like home. It is run by people who let one know that they need and love their guests. It’s almost tangibly noticeable that customer service is of utmost importance to ALL staff members. I was never disappointed. Every staff member understood service excellence. They are indeed a formidable team. It was so nice to be remembered by them. They truly made me feel welcome all the time. Zukile (Banqueting Waiter) went the extra 1 000 miles!! Room 19 is really a lovely, spacious suite. It was spotless and the linen crisp and fresh. It would be an added bonus if the carpet were replaced. I recommend this hotel very highly to anyone who values service excellence.

the food was excellent, staff always willing to assist. Atmosphere was inviting. T he room only needs attention on the floor and the air conditioner needs fixing, ladies at the reception are kind and offer their help successfully.

Thanks everything went well, we appreciate alot. Muhle and Nolufefe was friendly and nice all the time, the driver of the boat cruise did very well. The food was delicious, we will recommend this place .

Everything was excellent and we enjoyed with my family. We would love to thank everyone who has been helpful with our booking from Taniah to the last guest person who served us when we were checking out. We are really thankful.

A lovely quiet weekend stay, staff and food outstanding but the general condition of the hotel needs some uplifting! Weatherbeaten and in need of some TLC! Otherwise lovely! Food fantastic and staff very efficient and helpful!
