Overall this was a good hotel. We were in pe for the Ironman race and this was a good location near all the events and was a good price. There were good places to eat near by, the only thing missing was the grocery store was a little far away by foot but still close by car.

Tea/Coffee facilities available in the room. You need to check with reception for WiFi connection- you need a degree to work it out! The a-la-carte menu better than the buffet.. Steak and prawns really lovely. Reception staff really good-friendly, yet professional. Thank You!

This hotel is quite old but the facilities and service are good. Some maintenance is required, such as a blocked shower drain, but on the whole everything was satisfactory and the staff were efficient. The room had a small safe (not big enough for a laptop), kettle with coffee and tea, hairdryer and a selection of cable TV channels. Ask...

Enjoyed our stay at the Kelway Hotel. Our room was comfortable, clean, with tea making facilities. We had a balcony which had a super view over the ocean. The hotel restaurant is very good and the breakfast was excellent. All the staff we encountered were wonderfully welcoming. Really good stay.

Our second visit to The Kelway. Arriving in Port Elizabeth on a Sunday afternoon we picked up a hire car and wanted a simple trip to a good hotel. We remembered how convenient the Kelway had been several years ago and booked again. Glad to say it is as good as ever. Rooms are well furnished and the decor good...

Towards the end of our Garden Route trip we stayed for three nights at Kelway hotel. Our piece of advice would be to go for the more expensive rooms with private balcony and ocean view. We tried a regular room, too, and definitely found the little extra cost worth it. Located on a hill, with a scenic view of beautiful...

A nice hotel, close to the sea and sea view. The hotel reception is bright and airy with lovely friendly receptionists with a quick easy check in. The hotel room doors which do appear old and ill fitting gives the appearance of a dingy room but once you enter, the room is modern with a balcony with a sea view....
