Super friendly crew that really went out of their way to make our visit as comfortable as possible. Everything from their food to the cleaning of our room was top class. They helped us book all from Taxis to Safaris and everything was as smooth and as exciting as one would hope for.

On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the fast and efficient service. Our vehicle had its own dedicated safe locked parking, our unit had an access lockable door to a cosy courtyard with...

We liked the nice atmosphere at Margate Place Guest House and will return when we are in Port Elizabeth. The breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared. We had a huge room and a parking opportunity assigned to the Margate Place Guest House area, which could be locked up. In walking distance to restaurants, we can recommend Squires Legendary Grill (which...

My sister & I arrived late as our flight was delayed. The weather was dark , wet and very cold! We arrived to a very warm reception and even warmer room - the heaters had been put on and the room warmed up for us! Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean , we slept like babies in the comfortable beds. The...

I really enjoyed being at Margate Place Guest House in P.E. My room was well appointed and very cosy. The staff was always friendly and nice. I felt like being at home. The beach, restaurants, the supermarket and the "Boardwalk" were a 5 to 10 min. walk away. The airport, and the centre of the town could be easily reached...
