The Windermere - Holidays in South Africa

Step off the road and into a surprising oasis, at this enclosed courtyard property. Stunningly beautiful, airy rooms, each individually decorated, make The Windermere the perfect place to start or finish your Garden Route adventure, or for South Africa golf holidays it is ideally located for the nearby Humewood Course.

Located in Port Elizabeth, just a 10 minute walk to the beach and the sea front, The Windermere is a small boutique style, bed and breakfast hotel, offering relaxation and an ideal base to explore the local amenities and casinos. The hotel has its own cocktail bar, which is popular with locals, and a small restaurant serving breakfast and light snacks.

Soak up the sun on the spacious sun deck or relax on one of the many sofas indoors and on the veranda. There is a small but welcome swimming pool, perfect for cooling off after a round of golf.

Port Elizabeth is about an hour's drive from a number of private game reserves such as Pumba and Shamwari. These reserves have Africa's Big 5 game animals and have the added bonus of being malaria-free, so are more child friendly. This region known as the Eastern Cape is ideal for safari holidays in South Africa, especially as an add-on to the beginning or end of a Garden Route Itinerary.

Rooms
Calm muted tones and vibrant azurine blues, the large airy rooms are spacious and open. Ultra modern bathrooms with showers that have to be seen to be believed, and beg to be enjoyed! Each room is different, some with extra beds as family rooms. All feature DVD players, mini bars and air conditioning.

Dining
The restaurant at the Windermere serves breakfast and light lunches only. The staff will be happy to give recommendations and to make reservations for you at local restaurants in the area.

In our opinion: The Windermere offers a tranquil setting with large airy rooms. Its perfect for couple but maybe a bit constricting for families unless you intend to spend all day out of the property, the pool is more a dip pool rather than an area where children can play. We love The Windermere especially having the small bar attached which is perfect for pre or post dinner drinks.
