Baie lekker gebly. Personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Babette is 'n dierbare behulpsame gasvrou wat uit haar pad gaan om jou verblyf so aangenaam as moontlik te maak. Die blyplek is regtig baie skoon en netjies. Sal beslis weer daar tuisgaan.

This was our 2nd time at Alcyone and I would go again. We had such a lovely stay and Babette is the best. She is friendly and not just there to watch you. Doreen is also very friendly and you can feel when you walk in the room that it is clean.

Dearest Alet and family, it is always a pleasure to have you. Thank you so much for the review! Warm Regards

Gerieflik en ruim met als wat ons nodig gehad het vir ons selfsorgverblyf.

Hoogs aanbeveel en veilig. Naby die strand, maar vir ons was dit te ver om te stap. Ek is seker in hoogseisoen sal dit gepas wees. Baie restaurante en winkels in die omgewing. Motor staan op 'n erf omhein met mure en 'n elektriese hek - veilig. Die eienaar was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en het ons op hoogte gehou met die loadshedding. Sal beslis weer daar bly as ons PE toe gaan.

Waarde vir geld.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Alles was pynlik netjies. Die koninggrootte-bed was gerieflik. Vriendelike mense. Daar is alles wat jy nodig het. Alcyone is baie goed geleë vir besoek aan Somerstrand, die Universiteit wat 'n klipgooi daarvan is, sowel as die vele eetplekke en besienswaardighede. Dit is baie rustig en ontspannend. Ons sal baie beslis weer daar bly en aan vriende en familie aanbeveel.

Goeie waarde vir geld. Vriendelike gasvrou.

Drie volwassenes en 2 kinders gemaklik gepas in 2 aansluitende kamers, met aparte yskaste en volledig toegeruste kombuis. Ek wou nie 'n fortuin betaal nie, maar nie enige van die essensiële prysgee om 'n gehalte-vakansie met familie te hê nie, en Alcyone was perfek vir ons in daardie opsig en naby genoeg aan die see ook. Ek is baie tevrede. Het die vakansie baie geniet. Barbette was ook warm, behulpsaam en vriendelik altyd.

Rus, vrede, stilte - baie goeie ligging.

Ek sal Alcyone met ‘n geruste hart aanbeveel. Babette se vriendelike ontvangs het ons behoorlik laat welkom voel en alles in die eenheid was skoon en netjies. Ons het ons tydjie in PE geniet en sal weer by Alcyone aanklop vir verblyf wanneer ons in die omgewing is.

Great time, thank you.

Our travel arrangements had to be changed twice and Babette was always willing to accompany us. She even gave us the choice of which unit to stay in and gave advice on activities and attractions to enjoy in Port Elizabeth. Alcyone's units are very neat and clean and have everything you could need. Thank you for a great time.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Baie lekker. Baie dankie.

Ons reisreëlings het 2 keer verander en Babette was altyd gereed om ons reëlings te akkommodeer. Sy het selfs vir ons 'n keuse gegee van watter eenheid ons in wil bly en ook raad vir aktiwiteite wat ons in en om PE kon besoek en doen. Alcyone se eenhede is baie netjies en skoon en bevat alles wat jy mag nodig kry. Baie dankie vir 'n baie lekker kuier.

Meer as wat ons verwag het en 'n heerlike tyd gehad.

Alcyone is baie goed geleë. Naby alles, winkels, brandstof, strand, die hele strandfront tot by Sea View is 'n paar meter weg. Bekostigbaar, skoon en veilig. Sommer bitter lekker gebly. Dankie Babette.

Waarde vir geld, alles wat jy benodig teen 'n bekostigbare prys.

Alle geriewe wat jy kan benodig. Babette was baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig selfs as eiendomsagent met ons ylingse soeke na verblyf vir ons studentkinders. Nader blyplek aan Nelson Mandela Universiteit kan jy seker nie kry nie. Baie goed geleë vir ouers en studente wat van elders kom registreer ens. Alcyone se verblyfeenhede kan aanmekaar skakel vir groter groepe maar is steeds individueel volledig selfversorgend.

The room was comfortable and was equipped with all that we needed for our stay. The location is good, close to the beach and grocery stores.

Pragtig, skoon en gerieflik.

Ons is baie hartlik verwelkom en vergesel na 'n baie ruim, netjiese en skoon gesinskamer. Goed toegeruste kombuis voorsien in alle behoeftes. Veiligheid is goed. Ons het drie baie gemaklike dae daar spandeer. Daar is selfs hout in die braai vir ons voorsien. Voorwaar 'n plekkie wat ons weer sal bespreek. Baie dankie, Babette!

A good place for a long term stay.

We stayed at Alcyone for 33 days. We hadn't heard about the guesthouse before and ordered it on line. We were made very welcome by the hosts, and they looked after us the whole time. We liked the backyard very much - it was separated from the hosts' private garden, so we felt it was private too. We had a rental car and we had our own parking space at Alcyone. The guesthouse is just 15 minutes' walk from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. The street has lots of traffic during daytime, but we didn't see it as a problem. We recommend Alcyone.
