Lovely guesthouse in Port Elizabeth!
I stayed at Bright on 5th for a week while working in Port Elizabeth, and I had a wonderful stay. The room was large and comfortable, with a sofa and table and chairs and a desk, and self-catering amenities including a microwave, toaster, water kettle and tea/coffee and small fridge. The bathroom was also spacious, with a separate shower stall and a large soaking tub. The B&B is in a quiet area, but it is still walking distance or a very short drive to a few restaurants, a mall, and the beach and promenade. The breakfasts were delicious and huge - I definitely ate more than I usually do for breakfast, and often skipped lunch! Mary and Chris were so accommodating and helpful with recommendations on dining and activities. I will definitely stay here again! My only complaint is that the wifi was very slow and spotty - I often had to revert to using the wifi modem that I rented because the guesthouse wifi wasn't working or would cut out.

Excellent would recommend anyone to stay.
We stayed on 2 separate nights and Mary and Chris made us feel ever so welcome. The Guest House is excellent and I can't speak highly enough of the excellent accommodation and the way we were looked after. I hope we can stay again in the future.
