We got in 3 hours late to Port Elizabeth so it was a great relief to get to the hotel and receive such a warm reception. The room was beautiful and we enjoyed speaking with the owner in the morning. She suggested we take a walk to the beach which we did. After a great breakfast we were on our...

After a few business trips to PE,I think I've finally found the right hotel. I got a very, very spacious room, clean and comfortable. Though the noise isolation was far from perfect and my room was facing the street, it was a very quiet street, with hardly any traffic, so sleep quality was very good Breakfast was more than enough,...

The first time I stayed there I was given Room #1, their best room. And I must say that I was impressed. There was very little I could desire that was not provided in the room. Its spacious, offers a king size bed and a spare single bed. The bathroom offers a spa bath and a spacious shower. The high...

Couldn't believe my eyes at the size, décor and cleanliness of the room! Warm welcome by the owners when we visited on two separate occasions. Lovely gardens and swimming pool, and able to eat breakfast outside.Close to the beach and boardwalk. So pleased that the hotel was recommended to us.

Another visit to P. E and another excellent stay at 5th Avenue Beach House. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday, and they went out of the way to make it special. All the staff have been there for years which shows how well they are treated. Cannot speak highly enough of the owners. Thank you all for a lovely...

East Cape Tours booked me into this lovely guesthouse as they knew that Anthea would look after a solo lady traveller and she did! I'd had a disappointment when I arrived with her just before Christmas, my family were delayed in Ghana; Anthea made sure that I was kept occupied to take my mind off it by arranging a wonderful...

Huge room with a balcony giving side views of the sea. Very helpful staff and clean throughout the hotel. No evening meals served but there is a restaurant almost next door (De Kelder) but be warned service there when we used it was dire! Great hotel that we would use when staying in Port Elizabeth next time. Wifi is available...

Our stay at 5th Avenue Beach House was splendid. The room was very clean, comfortable and had luxurious features such as a whirlpool bath. The lady who owns the business was very helpful and accommodating. It has a lovely outdoor pool and the breakfasts had lots of variety and choice. The place has two dogs and a cat which myself...

We stayed here on 2 occasions during our trip and it was absolutely fabulous from the moment we arrived. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable and cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone going to Port Elizabeth.
