I really enjoyed being at Margate Place Guest House in P.E. My room was well appointed and very cosy. The staff was always friendly and nice. I felt like being at home. The beach, restaurants, the supermarket and the "Boardwalk" were a 5 to 10 min. walk away. The airport, and the centre of the town could be easily reached... More

We had a fantastic time at Margate. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was awesome, and the room was clean and cosy! The beach and malls are all within walking distance in the safe neighborhood. If ever we are back in PE....we will definitely stay there and we'd recommend it to anyone :)

Thankyou to Cornell, Alex, Susan and other staff. From the first telephone call to every email that ensued, you guys were tops.

Margate Place is a short walk from the wonderful Port Elizabeth beachfront. 10/10 for location and 10/10 if self-catering is what you're after. This four star establishment offers comfortable, well appointed rooms and is situated close to the nearby attractions of the Boardwalk Casino, the lovely walks along the water-front and the Port Elizabeth University.

“Some ground floor rooms are larger than others. If you have a problem with stairs, request a ground floor unit - if you are a couple request a larger room on reservation. See their website for outlay of accommodation offered. Really a nice place to stay.”
