Been a great experience from the moment I got to the parking and all the way through. Everyone was friendly incl. the security, check-in desk, bar, and restaurant staff. Customer service is very important to me and I was never disappointed.

I stayed at this hotel for one night before flying home after doing the Garden Route - it did the job for a one night stay with clean and large rooms. However the food lets this place down - the buffet dinner and breakfast was disappointing with luke warm food which was not appetising. So I would recommend eating out...

I spent two nights. I was not expecting much due to some reviews here on tripadvisor. Well, this is not a bed hotel. I am writing this while inside the room, so I am writing what I am seeing. The room is actually a decent size, and looks like it was recently renovated. There is a big, comfortable bed, and...

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The staff there is very helpful and warm. Only setback was the food! The food was not good especially for me as a vegetarian. I wish they could incorporate some Indian food so that those who are vegetarians could also benefit .

Nothing to write home about. It's a comfortable hotel. Loved some of the staff but some seemed a bit out of it. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Amazing view of the ocean from the room. Great views from the restaurant too, great for breakfast

This hotel is wonderfully situated. It is overlooking the sea, around the corner from shops and supermarkets, close to the university and just down the road to the city. The staff provide an amazing customer experience. Check-in was quick and smooth. Cherylanne and Tashne were friendly, helpful and professional. The bedrooms were spotless, and had everything one needed to enjoy...

The positives- great view of the ocean out the window, nice restaurant (De Kelder) attached The negatives- For some reason, you only get 500MB of internet usage. This was gone in about 20 minutes and was very frustrating. Additionally, our shower leaked and our key card inexplicably stopped working partway through our one night stay.

We arrived in port Elizabeth at approximately 7pm. the check in was easy and the rooms were spacious. We never ate in the hotel but the breakfast next morning was very good. after breakfast we checked out and moved on with our journey after a brief walk along the sea front which was pleasant and warm.
