Stayed here only for 1 night so can't write a detailed review. Room windows open to the expanse of the ocean across the road. Lots of restaurants in walking distance. Good sized rooms with big bathrooms and separate bath tub. Only criticism is that we didn't get any help from the concierge with our luggage and that the front desk...

We were unfortunately met by a very rude lady at reception. (thabisa) Not offering any information and getting annoyed when we asked about the basics eg wifi and dinner. No apologies for the room not being ready at check in time. When we asked for something to drink we where pointed in the direction of the bar, where there was...

I have just returned from my holiday to South Africa touring along the Garden Route. During my trip I stayed at the Coutyard Hotel in PE.

I recently stayed here over a weekend as I was attending a conference at the Boardwalk Hotel. The location of this hotel is excellent. It offers easy access to the beachfront as well as to the Boardwalk Complex - the latter via a complimentary shuttle service which was a really nice touch. The hotel is neat and tidy. The staff...

Firstly, I believe booking through a travel agent drops your rating / preference for the better rooms. I only have this on hearsay but I was the recipient of one of the worst rooms in the hotel.
