                  We loved everything about Sheilan House, their rooms are spacious, it is nice and quiet. There's even enough space for car parking if the main ones are fully utilized, the pool is placed in a perfect place if guests need to braai and there is also easy access to the rooms from the pool. The breakfast was👌👌👌. I can not wait for my next trip to Port Alfred and check in at Sheilan House again.

                  Our stay at Sheilan House was both a memorable and a very comfortable experience.Joans hospitality and warmth is unforgettable! Their food service is very healthy and scrumptious. What was most appealing about our stay is the immaculate homely, user-friendly facilities that were at our disposal - e.g. the rooms; pool; braai place; etc.Finally, l will never consider booking at any other place in Port Alfred and l will highly recommend Sheilan House to family and friends. Thank you so much!

                  We would highly recommend this guesthouse in Port Alfred. It is conveniently situated within walking distance of restaurants, the golf course and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and we certainly will return again.
