What our guests say
We originally booked two nights at Belvedere Cottage but enjoyed it so much we stayed another night. Our host Roy was more than helpful with great suggestions of what to see and do as well as where to eat. We followed all his advice and are having a great holiday if we could take him with us as our guide we gladly would the cottage met all our needs beautiful, clean and homely. He helped us book our next night in Port Alfred and that was great too.
Close to very good restaurants and vo votelo cafe bakery plus some interesting shops. safe to walk there and back to restaurants. Near to St George's Park. Very safe accommodation with garage parking. Wifi excellent.
Warm welcome from Roy who took us on a orientation tour. Quite unexpected but much appreciated great local restaurant cafe area just 5 mins walk away.
We visited Port Elizabeth recently to partake in an equestrian event and booked into Belvedere Cottage.
The cottage is fully equipped and there is secure parking. The area is very charming and we felt very safe. This is the earliest suburb of the city and is full of beautiful historic buildings.
Richmond Hill, the neighborhood has undergone a revival since our last visit to PE. It is now trendy, "vibey" and a hip neighborhood with some of the best restaurants in the city.
We enjoyed the best pizza's alfresco style at, Charlie Super Star in the famous Stanley Street. There we were thrilled to see our first "flash mob", which involved multitudes of patrons from the various restaurants, suddenly in synchronized formation provided great entertainment. On inquiry, this happens at random.
This alternative suburb is great fun and clearly is the new tourist "it" place to be in Port Elizabeth.
Thank you to the helpful staff at Belvedere Cottage. Highly recommended.

We stayed here recently for a couple of nights whilst in PE. The property is set in the old town, parts of which are being thriving areas again. The cottage we had (#15) was very comfortable, with a lounge/kitchen, bedroom, en suite and a pretty private courtyard. Also an attached garage. Just a few minutes walk away is a delightful collection of restaurants and cafés, serving meals throughout the day.
The owner, Roy, is the star of the show though! After meeting us and checking us in, he advised on the local area and then drove us round the city for an impromptu tour. He was born and bred in the PE area and lived in the city for many years. He is very enthusiastic and knowledgable about his city and it was a pleasure spending time with him.
