Very enjoyable and relaxing stay. Staff were friendly and eager to assist if one had any questions. Minor issue with a leaking shower head but not end of the world. There is a garage nearby should one run out of anything. Would have liked access to a fridge or some ice.

I have been staying at this City Lodge for a number of years, but not through Covid so happy they are still up and running again. This City Lodge is in the perfect location close to the freeway, airport and a number of great value eateries! Value for money, friendly staff, safe parking and great rooms.

Checking in was quick & easy. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly, always willing to assist. Our room was clean. External parking was safe, testimony to the fact that I left one of my windows open & nothing was taken.

We stayed at City Lodge in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth from Saturday night and checked out this morning. I am a firm believer that as easy it is for one to complain about a bad experience it must be equally easy to comment on good service and I would really like to say a big Thank You to City Lodge team in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth for an outstanding service and memorable stay. The property is so welcoming, staff friendly and helpful and most of all very clean and fresh and definitely in my mind should not be a 3 STAR but should rather be a 4 STAR rating as I have travelled around the world and I must say that you are even better than some 4 STAR properties globally, which I have seen.

I enjoyed the services , tho i still feel there is room for improvement , i am challenging them to be five star . I was happy with the AC units to regulate room tempreture. I am not sure how safe the external parking was , but i can attest that the hotel is affordable and the stay is worthy it

Clean room, comfortable bed, good location and excellent breakfast. They also accommodated my very late arrival. What more can you ask for an overnight business trip? Will definitely come back. Thank you.

Have stayed here on a few occasions due to business commitments - nothing has changed/improved even though the online questionnaire has been completed numerous times. The rooms are fairly basic with the basic and usual amenities. The rooms, themselves, are musty and stuffy - like the windows have not been opened for a while. This is really unpleasant!! Breakfast is a non-event - quality of products used could do with an overhaul. Vegetarian/vegan options are have not been given much consideration. Dinner options are available at the in-house coffee shop as well as out-sourced to the nearby John Dorys , News Cafe O.R. Nandos. In-house coffee shop lack vegetarian options - Mac n cheese was the vege only option for me. Too much oily cheese ; not much of anything else. Reception staff are very welcoming ; everyone else make you feel as if they are doing you some kind if favour by bring it service. Not the best place.

Thank you for choosing City Lodge Hotel Port Elizabeth and for taking the time to share feedback on your stay. We are so sorry that your experience was spoiled by confusion over your booking. Our general manager has investigated the matter and reports that there was an IT glitch that resulted in the Agoda system not communicating with our booking system. Please accept our apologies for the delay in checking you in due to this error. We have also tasked our housekeeping team with more stringent supervision on bathroom cleanliness. With regards to the soft beds, we are currently investigating with central office about replacing mattresses during our next refurbishment. We regret that you didn’t experience the high standards to which we hold ourselves accountable. We hope you will choose to stay with the City Lodge Hotel Group again, that we may better demonstrate our commitment to service excellence.
