GUEST HOUSES – Greenacres Lodge – Accommodation Port Elizabeth

A guest house is either a converted house or manor adapted to accommodate overnight guests or it may be a purpose built facility. These establishments are usually run as commercial operations and are often owner-managed. Guest houses have areas which are for the exclusive use of the guest with the owner/manager either living off-site, or in a separate area of the property. This type of accommodation remains, like its bed and Breakfast counterpart, a very popular choice for both local and international tourists and visitors.
