Had a great room high up (this was a pleasant surprise). Great views, could watch surfers,walkers, joggers, see container and other ships coming into the Bay. Port Elizabeth was windy, but you couldn't really hear it (unless the windows were open). The pool is near the restaurant. It is not huge, but good for a cooling dip. The service was...

The rooms are modern and nice. They are decent sized and comfortable. The staff is great and friendly. A welcome change from local B& B's, which are nice but lacking in amenities. The views are nice, but the windows need cleaning. A problem across from the Ocean.
