Approaching the hotel, I had my doubts seeing that it's undergoing renovations. However, I was well received and it was explained that the noise of renovations will cease at 16h00. Luckily, the staff was so considered that my room was situated as far as possible from the renovations without compromising the sea views of Port Elizabeth. Thank you for your...

On a quick stopover in PE we stayed as a family in two rooms. Easy access to beach. Easy access to Boardwalk food area. 8 minutes to the airport. Rooms were clean and quiet even though temporary remodeling was underway. Staff was super friendly. Would certainly stay again.

Nice hotel with very friendly staff. Should be better once the building work at front of hotel is finished. Noise from workmen from around 8 and cleaning of floors etc at entrance. Nice breakfast and lovely staff doing their best to make your stay comfortable. Reasonable location just a short walk along to the boardwalk. Overall a nice place.

Great location on the main beach road, a short walk to a pristine clean beach. We didn't use the restaurant as we went out for dinner - but did have great dessert from the in room dining menu. Would love to go back again in summer.
