Reviewed 1 March 2016

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...

This establishment was a perfect stopover before our trip to the Garden Route. The location is perfect and is close to a wide variety of entertainment options. The aircon in the rooms were just what we needed for the heat during December. Oh yes....... And the free ice was such a big help as there are no fridges in the...

No baggage carriers - we were on the 2nd floor and had to carry up the flights of stairs. No elevator! T.V. was so small you need binoculars...

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! The place is filthy, very noisy an absolute dump!!! Stayed here because PE was fully booked so we had no other option.

Went to Port Elizabeth and booked in here. I would rather pay more to stay at a better place. What a dump! Noisy, tiny rooms, no hot water, one pillow and little blanket, very close to the casino so you hear a lot of traffic all night. The beds are tiny and hard. Shower floods so water all over the...

Very nice hotel and value for money it was worth my while and money well spent. I was on business in PE and needed a good value for money hotel, which I received here. The staff was also very friendly and helpful.

Stayed at this hotel on the way from Cape Town to East London and back. Its good value - rooms are small, but perfectly adequate for a stop-over night.
