Breakfast is below average.
Dinners are inedible - clearly no in-house chef!
Rooms could be cleaner and door needs to be slammed shut which is disconcerting.
Staff member allowed to come into work whilst clearly "under the weather" and proceeds from breakfast table to breakfast table offering coffee. Suffice to say, I didn't order coffee that week. Unacceptable!

the covid19 preparation / protocol are beyond the standard and one can highly recommend this hotel. From reception, cleaning staff to security personnel all maintain a very high standard of professionalism, helpfulness, friendliness adhering to covid19 regulations and exceed the standard laid down by the law. This hotel are highly recommended and anyone can with peace of mind book and stay. There is no chance for the virus to make bed at this facility. Well done

A secure functional chain hotel with plenty of parking. Our room was large although the bathroom felt a bit dated. The staff on reception didn't go out of their way to explain what facilities the hotel had or what was in the surrounding area. They didn't have a map available either.

On our first night we ate in the hotel restaurant. Although for most of the time their was only us and one other table the service was slow. When our meals eventually arrived they were no more than luke warm. It took over 20 minutes for a bottle of sparkling mineral water to arrive. When it did it clearly had been shaken up on it's way as it sprayed out all over the table. After we had signed the bill so that it could be put on our room the waitress came to our room and said that we had to pay for it separately. We ate out on our second night!

Although there were a lot of notices about saving water due to a drought when our room was serviced the towels were changed, even though we were only staying two nights, and the face cloth disappeared.

We booked 2 rooms almost 3 weeks in advance. I specifically asked for certain rooms, adjacent to each other or inter-leading. When we arrived unfortunately we were first told that rooms are only made available on day of arrival. This information did not sit well with me as I asked for those rooms ,because I had my Mom and her sister who are in their 70s and 80s respectively with me. We were on a road trip and I had planned everything way in advance. Eventually after a whole up and down the front desk staff member and the manager allocated two separate rooms on different levels. The room where I stayed was on a lower level and there were leaves and other dirt on the stoep near the stairs next to the room. I thought it would be cleaned,but watched how it remained uncleaned for the duration of our stay of 3 days.Otherwise the rooms were clean. Good beds. Enough coffee. tea. etc.

We had a wonderful stay at The Courtyard Hotel. The rooms were clean and very spacious and all the amenities offered were exquisite (safe, fridge, microwave, Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery, glasses, etc). Amongst the amenities offered is a free laundry self-service, which is not generally available for free at other hotels. We also booked on the summer special so received a free beach towel and beach bat set. Highly recommended and we would definitely return.

Wonderful view, friendly staff and best location to various restaurants within walking distance.
Having a kitchenette was also fantastic as we could warm up pies or keep drinks cold in the fridge.
The cleaners, servicing the rooms were unobtrusive and friendly.

If you're looking for accommodation with all the frills this is it. A very clever use of space for the kitchen and the bathroom is big enough to have a party in! The room was very comfortable with a lounge and dining area. The ironing board and iron in the cupboard was a great idea. I've never seen it stored like that before. It had a custom iron holder attached to the ironing board that enabled it to be hung on the hanging rail,very clever.We couldn't have asked for more. If traveling with children or friends there was a pull out couch bed too. Fantastic restaurant available should you choose not to eat in your room.

Great location, great design, great maintenance and great service. Unpretentiously luxurious, meticulously clean, and great breakfast. In room 115, the connection to the WiFi was sometimes intermittent though.

Service was excellent. Staff friendly, room with an ocean view. I like the fact that there is a kitchenette with a fridge and a small microwave - this makes a difference.
I also like the fact that the Iron and Ironing Board is available in the room.

We were overcharged by the hotel - R200 more per room (x 3 rooms) than we could have got had we booked thru bookings.com. receptionist totally unhelpful. Were give pavement level rooms , despite the hotel being empty - poor views of the ocean. No toilet brushed in the loos. Coffee was hidden in the cupboards - not advised by reception.

Room Tip: Do not waste your time with the City Lodge group as there are many better value places to stay at.

Dear Mr Muller I hereby wish to acknowledge the feedback received in regards to your stay at Courtyard Hotel Port Elizabeth on 30 October 2023 Our core business has always been to provide our valued guests with high quality accommodation and a value for money proposition with excellent customer service. Thank you for taking the time to bring the matter under my attention. I profusely apologize for the manner in how your concern regarding the rates were dealt with. Bookings.com is an independent online booking agenda and as you mentioned works on a commission based profit model. The online travel agents has different methods to boost sales such as reward points or complimentary nights for accommodation booked and can from time to time run promotional rates. They advertise the lowest possible rate and adjust the rate to the date in question when an actual booking is process, thus their rates advertised might change depending on the date the room is booked. They may also at their discretion use a portion of the commission earned to further discount accommodation to attract bookings on their portal. The City Lodge Hotel Group uses the same rate structure as most hotels, car rental and airlines in the industry. The rate at an online booking agent and the hotels can differ depending on what promotion the hotel of the online travel agent might have for that particular day that you wish to reserve. Unfortunately, none of our hotels offer toilet brushes in the rooms, but we do provide on request. I also apologies that the kitchenette in the rooms was not pointed out to you, this has been addressed with the front office team. Kindly contact the front desk at any time should you require any assistance during your stay. We truly regret that the hotel could not live up to your expectations on your recent stay and hope that you will provide us the opportunity to redeem ourselves. Kind regards

Hi there. In terms of distance it's probably 10km or 6miles. With no traffic it normally takes me around 15min to get to and from the airport. The hotel does have a shuttle you can use if my memory serves me correctly. Hope this helps.

It's usually included in the room rate as far as I know. It's lunch and dinner you need to pay for additionally. Do confirm about meals when making a booking.
