I will most definitely return to stay here when visiting Port Elizabeth. The presidential suite and breakfast was awesome. Staff friendly. Nice location. A winner.


Coen De Kock May 2014

Welcoming was very good,the rooms were comfortable.We had a problem with the water pressure in the shower which we reported to reception desk when we checked out.We had booked room 11 with the extra room as our son was with us.We would perhaps suggest that this room be equipped with a fan/air conditioner as well.Staff was very friendly and helpful and very conscious of security which is very good.We will certainly recommend the establishment to fiends visiting the area.Clifford and Deborah Dove (Mauritius)

Excellent, but no adapter to accommodate cell phone charging in room. Think about a internet hotspot.
