I have to stay that in spite of the fact that I only stayed one night at this property I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

We stayed at another hotel but visited the beach hotel for their buffet breakfast, which was affordable at R125 ppl and kids under 12yrs half price. The spread was good and well presented. However, they could use more waiters as we waited a bit for our teas and hot meals

The Veranda Restaurant is our favorite place on a good day to eat, enjoy a drink and enjoy the view over Hobie Beach. Service is good with friendly waiters. Rest rooms are clean and well maintained. One of Port Elizabeth's gems.

We were returning of PE for our flight to Joburg and it is perfect spot literally 10 minutes drive to the airport. This hotel sits across the road from the beach. It has a nice feel where you can wind down or go across the street to the beach and a couple of bars. Well worth a look.
