Rooms are very neat&clean. Also, the rooms are bigger than your average hotel room. Walking distance to the beach and and restaurants. Safe area to jog around. Breakfasts are not bad for the amount of money you pay.

We arrived at 9.00am after an early flight and were amazed and so pleased to be checked in at that time. William is a great host, nothing being too much trouble. He even cooks a good breakfast. Our room was in fact a self-catering apartment, which was the best of all worlds. The staff looked after it very well -... More

I spent 5 nights in the Lalapanzi Guest Lodge on a business trip and would recommend this location to anyone visiting Port Elizabeth. The location is good, the facilities were excellent and the host, William was extremely helpful, and a wizard with the omelettes! If I make it back to PE, I will stay in Lalapanzi, no doubt. Thanks William.

We just had 1 night here as a stop off in-between Knysna and Kenton on Sea. Great self catering facilities in a motel style. Good kitchen, nice to relax on the sofa with a take away for a change instead of eating out. Breakfast included in a separate room in the courtyard. William and his 2 jack russells were friendly...

I spent one night here because my favorite place in Port Elizabeth was full. This is a spotlessly clean, very functional place. There is no garden and the rooms are smart, but rather similar to what one might find at a chain hotel, except one can self-cater. William Buckett, the owner, was helpful and friendly.
