We have visited Spinning Reels twice and each time was magical – most definitely my most favourite getaway place – a piece of heaven on earth – loved loved loved it!

I have stayed twice at Spinning Reel in the bed and breakfast apartments and both times have been amazing. The rooms are well equipped, clean and very comfortable and the view of the sea is beautiful. The highlights of staying at Spinning Reel are the peaceful environment and nearby beach which is lovely for walks. I recommend this accommodation to anyone coming to Port Alfred. Thank you!

We had an overnight stay at The Spinning Reel B&B Suite this week-end and it was great! The view is beautiful, the suite is clean & the beds are comfy! Thank you!

We stayed in the B+B, it was absolutely the best. I would recommend Spinning Reel for anyone!

My friends and I had the best time, the chalet we stayed in was absolutely fabulous, spectacular views, private but not to private just perfect. I am recommending it to all my friends . See you soon Spinning Reel

My husband and I had a wonderful few days in one of the log cabins. the views are spectacular and everything one needs seems to be there. Very basic but clean. To walk to the beach is easy and amazing.This was our second visit and we will definitely be back at Spinning reel. We would have loved to stay longer

It's a gr8 place to stay. Would have loved to stay a bit longer.

My wife and I stayed for a week just before Easter and it was great. The room was comfortable and the view of the ocean perfect. Just what we needed. Will definitely come again. (Just a note, for future testimonials we hope you can upgrade your site for IPad use)

I just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the upgrading you have done in unit F. The new curtains & bedding, the wood panelling and new cistern in the toilet and new kitchen utensils make a bid difference. We enjoyed our stay and had a lovely rally – thank you.

The beach cottages - although basic are clean and the area kept tidy. The braai alcove was nice & private - surrounded by trees The beach access is excellent and safe. Overall a good place to spend a few days

5 stars!
We have been coming to our favourite cottage every year since 2006, bringing my mom (in her 90’s) with us for three weeks each time.  For her it was a nice change from her retirement home, and for us it meant a break from a cold winter in Canada.  Mom just loved to sit outside and watch the sea, the boats, the dolphins, the birds.  We’ve enjoyed our beach walks and swims, as well as day trips in the area.  Kim and Steve have been absolutely wonderful as hosts, always responding immediately to any concern or question.... they’re almost like family.  The simple, clean and well situated accommodation has suited us very well, and we would certainly recommend it to anyone...

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage, basic but comfortable with all facilities we required. We had nice sea views and it was quiet and peaceful..

Steep climb from parking area to a very comfortable room with an unspoiled and unique view. Friendly service, reasonably strong Wi-Fi signal.

Cottage I stayed in was basic but provided everything needed for an enjoyable stay. In fact it was a plus. A beach holiday involves sand and with children it's a relief not having luxury items that can get soiled. Closeness to the beach an definite plus plus!

Thumbs Up!
Everything we needed. Clean. Near to beach. Private.

We recently spent 9 days in a cottage at Spinning Reel. While the weather didn't play its part, we were very happy with the accommodation. Basic (as promised) but clean, neat and everything worked. It was also well-equipped and really close to the beach. I even saw glow worms - something from my childhood! thanks, Kay, Steph and Jess
