Forest Hall Guest House will exceed every expectation


Deep in the heart of the beautiful suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is one of my all-time favourite guesthouses. Expertly run by the husband-and-wife team of James and Hilary Bolton, Forest Hall Guest House is my go-to place when booking accommodation for family and friends.

Most guesthouses have a wow-factor and I personally feel the most unique aspect of Forest Hall is the fact that it’s positioned on a magnificent 1.5 acre lush park-like garden with a fascinating Romanesque swimming pool which instantly whisks you away to another world.

Pool loungers and umbrellas around not one, but two swimming pools ensure a lovely open space where you can enjoy ultimate relaxation while the children are off playing on the trampoline. Perhaps another wow-factor that cannot be overlooked is Forest Hall’s exceptional floodlit tennis court. Racquets and tennis balls are available from reception.

This 4-Star guesthouse boasts 16 beautifully decorated en-suite rooms. All units have separate, private entrances with patios. The rooms are equipped with ceiling fans, bath gowns, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards, digital safes, DStv (hospitality package), as well as radio, CD and DVD players.

Winters are no problem with electric blankets, hot water bottles, heated towel rails and a heater to keep you warm and toasty.

The units are also fitted out for self-catering stays and furnished with a bar fridge, toaster, microwave, cutlery and crockery as well as coffee/tea making facilities. Whether you’re traveling on business or pleasure, free high speed uncapped

Wi-Fi is always available.

Children of all ages are welcome and the guesthouse is also UA (Universal Accessibility TGCSA graded) for wheelchair access.

James and Hilary’s excellent attention to detail will ensure you want for nothing on your stay. Wake up with birdsong and indulge in their Full English and continental buffet breakfast to start your day. Dinner is served on request.

Forest Hall is situated just opposite the Little Walmer Golf Estate and conveniently close to major attractions such as Walmer Park Shopping Mall, excellent restaurants and coffee shops, the airport, Boardwalk Casino Complex and cinema, and the beach.

Shuttles are offered and trips and tours to nearby attractions such as the Addo Elephant Park or other game reserves can be arranged.

Forest Hall Guest House has won an astounding amount of awards and prizes and it comes as no surprise. Staying at Forest Hall is an experience and the owners and staff go to great extents to ensure they exceed every expectation.
