We stay at the Courtyard every year during the Ironman event. It is conveniently situated next to the Boardwalk centre which has a number of restaurants and some retail stores. Hobbie beach is a swimming beach with lifesavers etc and is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. If you need groceries and such, the supermarket is about 1.5 km...

Stayed at Courtyard Hotel on Marine Rd. for a week. It was difficult to really feel what kind of hotel it might be online. My criteria was a hotel with an oceanview suite, a bar, and fitness room. It was in line with expectations. Front desk staff were not friendly but courteous, dinning room staff were always helpful, housekeeping staff...

Nice rooms with view at the ocean. Unfortunate not a restaurant and no elevator when your at the lower floors. Rooms need upgrade. Staff friendly and breakfast is fine. But have been in better Courtyards, they need to modernise reaching the real Courtyard level.

Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel building is lovely and spacious, reception staff very helpful and friendly. I emailed before our stay to arrange a shuttle pick up from the airport which was 80 ZAR (about £3.50) and just added to our bill so all very easy. We used the same company for our transport to and from the cricket stadium...

This is not my first visit to the PE Courtyard hotel, and was still an enjoyable experience. Well situated hotel with all that one could need, being close to a number of restaurants and pubs right on the beachfront, along with the Boardwalk Casino Complex. Rooms are comfortable with added amenities in the form of a nicely concealed kitchenette.
