Totally inadequate front office staff who did not even know the basics. The room was below par. There were dead skin cells and pubic hair in the bath. Hair of some sorts was on the bed sheets. Being in the industry, I was mortified at the lack of cleanliness and professionalism. On check out, we were not even asked if...

We had a nice stay in Port Elizabeth. At reception we asked what to do and the recommanded city tour of almost 4 Hours was great. Around the Pools were hardly any facilities, unfortunately. Towels, we got!

Ticks all the boxes from friendly staff to a gorgeous garden setting. Comfortable beds with attention to detail. Breakfast is a feast :) great buffet of fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, yoghurt and cereals. Hot menu to chose from. Thanks for a great stay.

This place is a hidden secret in PE. This is the most awesome place with the most friendly people. The rooms are very private and super clean. Will stay there again when visiting PE. Secure parking on site

I strongly recommend this hotel! We didn't stay long in Port Elizabeth and didn't visit the city but this hotel was just perfect for us because easy to find from the airport. All the staff is lovely and welcoming. The rooms are very clean and well decorated. And the breakfast is excellent. A nice hotel to stay especially for couples.

It is not spectacular but it is clean and the staff were all very friendly and the room is clean and comfortable. Pleased to have a safe in the room. Breakfast served in a separate building at the back was good with a few different options. The security gate is a bonus
