Everything from the room (Colonial room) to the kind hospitality we receive at this place really makes it worth staying for several days. The friendly staff are there to assist you in all your necessities and the breakfast was delicious. On hot days, you have a nice swimming pool to cool off in and the jungle view makes it a...

... in a sub-tropical garden loved by birds and butterflies, swallows nesting in the eaves of your balcony, an elegant, spacious, immaculate room, your own secluded patio or balcony, breakfast consisting of anything you want, management and staff who go the extra hundred miles, you'll find it all here. Shops, a restaurant and a pub near by. I had an...

A long business weekend in East London found us staying at Loerie Hide. We booked the budget room which is a thatched circular room or rondavel. It would be challenging to get to this room if you are physically challenged or drink too much as there are over 50 steps of varying shapes and sizes through the garden to access...

My wife & I stayed for two nights in the Colonial Room - Not for people who have hip or knee problems as there are many steps down a few levels. We were welcomed and our booking confirmed by our hostess, Sue. The room and bathroom was very spacious and comfortable with lots of packing space. Opening the curtains and...

Rooms were lovely and spacious. Gorgeous linen and towels and modern large bathrooms and stylish decor with a wonderful view. Breakfast area is rather average and doesn't match the rest of the establishment. Only one table to eat at which means if there were other people we would have to share with them.

We traveled to East London to fetch a vehicle we had purchased. We needed a place to stay to get some sleep before we drove back to Durban. So glad we found the Leorie Hide. Sue is so helpful and accommodating. Lovely rooms, fantastic service. Loved staying here. Love their puppy too

We stayed at the Loeri Hide B&B with our film crew on our way to the Wild Coast. The owners went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable, incl. cooking dinner for us and getting medicine from a pharmacy for upset stomachs when we arrived tired after a long drive from Cape Town. The hospitality is simply...
