Good location- right on the beach, next to the restaurants and shops, spacious room with big comfortable bed and friendly and very helpful staff. I would recommend this guest house to everyone, who is coming to Port Elizabeth.

I heard about this place from working colleagues. The rooms and massive and comfortable. Unfortunately, the shower lets this place down. The shower is tiny and when you enter the shower, you are standing in the uneven drain.

Great relaxing place to stay. Grate staff. Good location close to casino and shops and ocean. Clean rooms. Great place to stay if you want to relax and stay away from hustle and bustle of main stream accommodation.
