The Paxton Hotel staff were amazing. We arrived there late and very tired due to extensive car trouble. Reception was warm and welcoming, neat as a pin, with fresh flowers. They accommodated us on very short notice. The pool was sparkling clean an a lovely place to relax at with just as excellent service. Breakfast was above average and well...

We spent 3 days at the Paxton hotel as a family - en route to Knysna. We generally choose to stay at 4 or 5 star hotels when traveling. Our stay was pleasant enough, but we felt that the hotel is definitely on the 4- star side, rather than 4+. The rooms were comfortable and the 2 kids rooms had...

Dear Judy S Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with your positive feedback - it is greatly appreciated! Your comments concerning our pool were addressed. The issue was taken up immediately by our Team and a low pH level was the cause. However, in extreme heat and with many children using the pool, no shock...

Really enjoy this hotel. They get all the basics right, which should be the norm in any hotel, but unfortunately is not the case. Decent sized clean rooms, great service, good food, much better than average breakfast. Good location as well, and good strength free wi-if. I am always happy to come back there for business trips.

The hotel looks from the outside like so many other interchangeable hotels but when stepping through the door the atmosphare is tranquil, subdued with just a few african touches to give it character. Through large windows one may look across the harbour and farther. The rooms are large enough for two people to move about. Bathroom features shower only, a...

It may be just outside of the trendy beachfront stretch of Port Elizabeth but having no high hopes I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, well appointed rooms and basic but good breakfast. Great value for money.
