Adjacent to City Lodge Hotel Port Elizabeth, the 203-room Town Lodge Port Elizabeth offers excellent value-for-money accommodation in a fantastic Summerstrand location. Spread over 6 floors, many of its rooms have superb sea views. The hotel is just a short walk from the beach and from the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex and also offers easy access to Port Elizabeth's CBD and other facilities and attractions. Town Lodge Port Elizabeth completes the puzzle of having each of the City Lodge group's four brands within close proximity of each other on the beachfront

It is well serviced and the food offering is a welcome addition since our last visit. The duvet is however extremely hot for the early part of the winter. Parking is convenient and safe. Tommy the security guard adds to the feeling of being looked after.

Visited the Town Lodge from 18-21 Feb 2022 , very pleasant experience. Check in process was quick & efficient , friendly Reception staff & assistance with baggage to our room. Managed to get a room on the 5th floor , what a wonderful view over Algoa Bay & Humewood Beach . Saw a pod of dolphins from the room one morning. Very central & across the road from quite a few restaurants or for a nice long walk or swim , literally all within 100m. Also 5 minutes from the highway should you wish to access other parts of PE or places outside like Addo National Elephant Park , Sundays River or Bluewater Bay , all within about 20-30min drive. The Lodge has a pool on site & outside as well as basement parking with lifts for your luggage. Its also close to the Boardwalk which is currently undergoing a major revamp so is closed except for the Casino. The room had a coffee station & was really neat & well maintained & good value for money , just under R1000 per room per night , excluding breakfast. It was our 1st stay at this Town Lodge & we will certainly stay there again when visiting PE

My suggestion is that future travelers call the hotel to check that the air conditioning in the room is working and that they have access to the DSTV Movie channels before arriving at the hotel. The service and staff were excellent. The food was great.

Internet not working in the room. Breakfeast area very cold. Outside no shade to have breakfeast there. Very noisy street. No room service, not even a sandwich, everything comes from restaurants near by. You freeze to death if you have a meeting, even on a rainy day outside, if it is hot outside, aircon is even colder. Hard to come home healthy. Missed most of my conference because of a bad cold.

This hotel situated on Marine Drive is a neat and clean hotel. The breakfast is great , rooms are clean, beds a bit small. The only gripe I have with this hotel is attitude of the reception, I asked twice for a sea facing room on check-in and two days later and was told no rooms available. The hotel was half full on these days, not helpful at all. No caring attitude at reception. Reception one star all other departments four star.
