Bishops Inn is amazing place to stay. You will relax, feel home in these cozy rooms and decent staff. They were really cheerful and helpful. The place itself is near to most of Port Elizabeth attractions. You are near to the beach, boardwalk and other attractions. I was lucky to attend the iron man show on the marine drive! Long...

I must say we enjoyed our stay in the honeymoon suite. The staff is very helpful & kind. The room was nice & big with our own patio looking out on the beach, so epic at night. The breakfast was awesome & serving food 07:00 in the morning was lovely. I really enjoyed the fact that they made us feel...

Bishops Inn in Port Elizabeth was a refreshing getaway from the mundane city life of South Africa. We loved the Cozy rooms as well as the proximity to various sights. We loved the coast at Port Elizabeth. Service at the Inn was very prompt and food was good too. Rooms could be a bit bigger though and could be better...

Checked in late - checked out early. It was comfortable for an overnight stay. Breakfast was good for a "on the go meal". A few attention to details like scrubbing the shower, fixing the kettle etc should up the standard.

Our stay was very comfortable, the room was very clean, the staff was friendly and went out of their way to assist when required. Very nice location as it was close to all amenities. Close enough to walk to the main road but far enough not to here the traffic.

Okay for a night. The dorm room was fine to sleep in but you don't need to stay there forever. The Shower was a Shower and not very luxury. I prefer the smaller hostels in this area. There are some just next to Bishops.

This would not be a place I would have chosen to stay in, but it was ok, just for a night., The room and bathroom were ok, the bed comfortable. When I checked in, I asked for the wifi code ad given the wrong one. Eventually, after trying it several times, I managed to get the correct one, but that...

Not a bad experience in general but avoid room GH 9 if possible. It has an absolute horrible smell to it and no bathroom extractor to assist with the problem. Although we booked and paid beforehand, the room was advertised for R120 per day less than what we were quoted and thus paid. We may try again next time albeit...

Nice lay out but it is not bed and breakfast as advertised.The Internet is advertised as free but the link is very weak and slow. It is very ideal for a family holiday or for friends who love cooking. The rooms are well equipped with fridge, cookers, cooking utensils, microwave, glasses, cutlery and napkins.What is just needed is to buy...

This hotel was not the Ritz by any means, but they were friendly and the room was quite large. It was quite difficult at first to find it as we were driving in Port Elisabeth for the first time, it was not exactly on the main road. The free Wifi was a bonus, although breakfast was a little disappointing. However,...
