The Beach Hotel in Port Elizabeth is very well located near the beach.Small hotel with 3 very nice restaurants.Rooms are of a good standard.Restaurants can be very busy and it is advisable to reserve a table for dinner even if you are a resident.Hotel is close to all areas in Port Elizabeth.

Room Tip: Some rooms have nice sea views.

This hotel was fit for purpose. Location was good, rooms had all the amenities that you need and breakfast was what you would expect, it was however, just a little tired and old fashioned in places. I wouldn’t describe the rooms as luxurious but they are definitely OK. Everything was clean which is the main thing.

The biggest plus point for this hotel has to be its proximity to the beach. It’s also right next door to a casino/shop/food mall so for location it gets 10/10. The Veranda bar was also a great feature of the hotel with beautiful views across the ocean and milkshakes to die for.

The choice of food is good , the setting is beautiful , the interior is lovely , but the service is dreadful . You can really wait for ages to be served and then something will have been forgotten . It is a pity because it is in such a great spot . So if you have time to waste , then you cant choose better!

Warm Greetings from The Beach Hotel,

Thank you for your review. We will be sure to spend more time with the restaurant staff on the Verandah. We strive for great service but it would seem that we have not delivered on this occasion. Thank you again for the review and affording The Beach Hotel Team to grow and improve.

We stayed at The Beach Hotel for two nights. The location was great - right near the beach (as the name would suggest) and good for walking through the town. However, the breakfast and quality of the rooms were average for the price. We felt like we were staying in a small beachside motel in a country town - not a luxurious hotel in PE. We expected more for how much it cost. We won't go back as it wasn't for us.

Stayed: January 2016

Good Day,

Thank you for the review. We are indeed not a cold corporate hotel and I hope never will be, but rather a small family run hotel with a proud heritage and history. That being said there is absolutely no reason for breakfast being substandard and I will be sure to focus on that.

Thank you for your review, it is always great to get the perspective from our guests affording us the opportunity to learn and grow.

Kind Regards

I visited the hotel on several occasions on my visit to PE over the New Year period, for breakfast lunch and dinner. The reason for the many returns was the gorgeous unpretentious comfort, old fashioned genuine welcome, delicious good value food, but above all for the exceptional staff. I have to single out the amazing manager Asanele, as well as Constance, both among the best and most hospitable people that I have met on my many travels.
The location of the hotel at first seems slightly odd, but is in fact perfect and central to everywhere be it beach or city- luckily the Boardwalk takes most of the busy traffic away. Perfect relaxing lounges.
