Easier on the pocket but that meant that we had to endure the noise of the petrol station and taxis that it is located across from. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is optional at R75, but I'd recommend going to Barney's accross the road for a better and more affordable breakfast. Perks are that it is central and walking distance from... More

Couldn’t be more easy to drop of your hire car, sleep, then catch your flight the next day. For £22 you can't really go wrong. In the UK it compares to a travel lodge, or a holiday inn express. We had an early morning flight and its maybe a 3 min walk to the check in desk. No joke. We... More

The staff were friendly enough, organised a room on the bottom floor as per request. Accommodation neat and tidy. Bathrooms clean and well planned. Reasonable value for money. Will consider staying again in future.

We arrived in Port Elizabeth rather late in the evening, without a pre-booking. Perfectly positioned on Summerstrand. We found the last non smoking room at this establishment. It was a pleasant surprise - we expected the worst. Although very small, the rooms were clean and pleasant. Aircon, Flat screen TV, soap, shampoo and towels provided. 1 pillow per person. Shower...
