Port Elizabeth, South Africa3 contributions3 helpful votes
My experience here was extremely poor from a service perspective. My wife and I arrived, at 11pm, to a massive party with very drunk individuals who refused to stop. The got very aggressive and confrontational. We tried to wait and see if they would stop at midnight but they did not. There was no staff on-site to assist. When I eventually got hold of the owner, at between 1am and 2am, she did not assist with the situation as she lived too far away. The music eventually stopped at between 3.30am and 4am. This was a horrible experience.

As a family we travel extensively. This establishment has a lot to improve. While the view is pretty and the beds we’re comfortable attention to detail is lacking. Simple things: Arrival greeting was rude with no offer of help given a crazy staircase to climb The swimming pool was dirty and then she tells my husband he can clean it ?! The walls were dirty in the bedroom right next to the bed If you have 4 guests - basic math you put 4 cups, 4 waters etc On the following day we had thought our booking was Bed and Breakfast- we were waiting for breakfast and the lady says “No your booking does not include breakfast !” Not even polite apology and asking if she can help for a fee ? I mean really ?!?! No ways would this be a 4 or 5 star - I would rate it a 2 or 3 star

My room and bathroom was lovely and the view was incredible. The room was serviced daily with clean dry towels provided and the coffee supply topped up. Mandi and Elizabeth were friendly and very helpful, especially with my early check-in requests as well as managing my request to stay an extra day. The staff left quite early, but this did not bother me. I felt safe and secure even when in the house on my own. The Wi-Fi is not fantastic and is erratic, so not recommended if you need to stay connected.

Mandy was very friendly and helpful and the house overall is impressive however there was no hot water in the evening and morning, the staff came in and showed someone the room while we were asleep in it in the morning, the Wi-Fi did not work and the jacuzzi was green and an eyesore.

I do not usually post bad reviews. This experience and the scathing emails received from the owner made me decide to warn other travelers. I arrived at a dirty room. The box covers were severely stained, the footstool was even stained worse with long black hair on it. Even the armchairs had stains on them. The glasses were dirty and the staff member got upset with me when I asked her if she could please swap them out for clean glasses and take away the ashtray full of cigarettes. The shower did not have toietries allthough the website states that it has. It had handwash in the shower which the owner told me is the toiletries- although the bottle read handwash. Luckily I always travel with my own toiletries. It took me an hour to get the room cleaned. I then phoned the owner who gave me an earful of how I did not use true caller, that she is too far away to oversee her staff and it's out of her hands. The next morning the owner messaged me to tell me that the girl making breakfast is running late because she was being attacked. I received a short answer back asking if the girl was okay. When asking the girl about the attack she first did not know what I was talking about, and then told me it happend a while ago. Further more I received a nasty email from the owner saying that I made her staff cry after shouting at them - a severe lie, I did not even raise my voice once towards the staff member and she had so much attitude. She went on to say that it was an inconvenience that I updated the room from a single person to a couple sharing. She then further accused me of not paying after I already paid more than 2 thirds and continuously asked her to email me the outstanding feed. I tried to settle the account by card the next day (yesterday) but the staff did not know how to work the card machine due to a lack of training. I then phoned the owner and she told me she will email me the invoice and right after she accused me of not paying and that I was having an off day and that it is the only reason I could possibly have to complain. Honestly, the view is great, but there are better views in PE, in better areas at a fraction of the cost and without the drama.

Home away from home.From my booking to my checking out all went well the manager was so friendly and nice.The suite was exactly as it looks on the picture probably way more beautiful.This was our first visit and .The place is so quiet and perfect for a date night.. Breakfast was delicious and the waitress so friendly. I Would recommend this place and definitely go back again if ever we visit P.E in the future.

Great views of the city and ocean in the distance and very quite We had the presidential suite for 9 nights which was spacous. Breakfast was good and very helpful staff. A car or a cab is needed to get to the beachfront but we walked to the cricket ground each day which was mainly through residential area

We spent our last day of our Garden Route leg in Port Elizabeth at the contemporary-styled Island Way Villa, The guesthouse is set on the highest ridge in Port Elizabeth with 180 degree sea-view and spectacular night tranquility. The hotel’s facilities include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and an undercover braai (barbecue) area. The ceilings are about four meters high, the floors are marble and the full-glass walls of the house look over the city. The breakfast is served with the panache and flourish of a grand hotel and the service delivered by the staff is impeccable. This modern-palatial facility is protected in what I’d call South African “fortress” style – with high walls topped with electric fences, solid electric rolling gates and an alarm system, so you can be assured of complete safety. We stayed in room #5 and it was very spacious. It’s a shame we can’t stay longer.

Arrival: We arrived after hours and had to wait 45 min before anyone opened for us. We called all the numbers provided on the gate without answers. A really frustrating situation. Scary as the town is unsecure and has a lot of criminals. Room: Small (150 cm) bed for 2 persons. Bathroom in the hallway. No ensuite. Minibar is a plus. Environment: Gated community. The pool was closed and under maintenance. A big disappointment. We didn´t get to know about this before we arrived. The managerś excuse - "You can relax at the beach-itˋs close by. The weather isn´t that great anyway". Food: Breakfast was below average. It didn´t taste well. Good coffee. Staff: Nice cleaning ladies. Manager was arrogant. View: Nice view over the city. Good to know: Port Elizabeth has a high crime rate. Beware! Cockroaches in the kitchen. Leaking fridge with full of water on the floor.
