Stayed in the Paxton for one night on a business trip. Acceptable hotel and convenient for purpose of my visit. Close to airport and central town. Friendly staff although we did have to wait some time to be served at the bar. Will stay again on business visit to Port Elizabeth, just not sure about a holiday stay

Breakfast was good. there are a couple of restaurants nearby. There is a small pool which is quite nice although due to the weather we didn't use it. All in all great for business but...

This is a good hotel in terms of location, it was close to our offices and also close to most of the night life areas for dinner etc along the promenade. The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are a good side although being as tall as I am the shower in some of the rooms is rather small. As...

Very comfortable hotel with nice rooms with a sea view. We were on the 3rd floor and the lift was very satisfactory. The hotel serves a very wide range of breakfast items and also does good packed lunches.

Everything was terrific, stayed for one night in January on the drive from East London to Capetown and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean, the service was spot on and my favorite was the pool deck with a great view of the port and ocean and the great bar service. The breakfast the next morning also was great with plenty...

The Paxton Hotel staff were amazing. We arrived there late and very tired due to extensive car trouble. Reception was warm and welcoming, neat as a pin, with fresh flowers.

We spent 3 days at the Paxton hotel as a family - en route to Knysna. We generally choose to stay at 4 or 5 star hotels when traveling. Our stay was pleasant enough, but we felt that the hotel is definitely on the 4- star side, rather than 4+. The rooms were comfortable and the 2 kids rooms had...
