Nice guesthouse but disappointing
Forest Hall guest house is located in a beautiful area of Port Elizabeth and has a huge and amazing garden. It's secluded and very pleasant. The room itself was very big' with a kitchen and all amenities. The hosts are lovely people. Breakfast was ordinary but goog enough. The things that disappointed us were: The place is very old and worn down and needs urgent remodeling. Level of cleaness low - sheets came with stains and many ants on kitchen counter.
