This was a return visit to the Beach Hotel. We liked our stay so much we extended it, nice sea facing room. Easy access to and great views over the beach and sea. The convenience of walking straight into the fabulous Ginger restaurant cannot be overstated!. My hotel of choice in Port Elizabeth.

Staff were friendly with good service. The suite room is excellent. The location is great so a walk to the beach or nearby casino and shopping centre and restaurants is easily accessible. Ginger is also a good restaurant to go to.

We had an early morning flight from PE airport, so decided to stay the night at a local hotel. We are from the UK and don't know PE at all. We chose at random from the internet. We couldn't have been happier. A great location in front of the beach with good walks available, easy car parking, friendly helpful staff, and a perfectly placed room to answer my request about not climbing stairs as I had a problem with my back. Lots of choices of places to eat within the hotel, and in the town too. Definitely recommend

I visited with my husband, mom and dad for the Ironman World Championships. My husband d and I competing, my octogenarian parents supporting. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. If you are looking for an individualized, caring and professional experience that makes you feel like you are at home, stay here.

Been a number of years since i stayed at the Hotel, little has changed and they still deliver consistent service. Facilities, room etc were great and drinks on the veranda always recommended. Suggest they have something on the menu to cater for quick meals, peanuts, biltong etc

Was a lovely stay at an immaculately run hotel. Staff are friendly and rooms are well equipped. Mini bar should be stocked however and Hotel bar closed at 10 pm which I felt was really early. Easy access to a swimming beach across the road, Make sure you get the room you booked, Executive rooms with Sea View were amazing on 1st floor.

We stayed in this hotel as I had previously stayed there as a child in the 70's and knew the location is excellent for anyone needing a specific visit to the St George's Hospital while the partner has a great place to relax. Clean, friendly staff, convenient location to beach for a walk, restaurant available, good breakfasts. Good secure parking.

Sure is a frontline beach resort for sure but rooms were tucked away at the back without a sea view. Don’t recommend booking without a telephonic confirmation that your room has sea views. Left us unimpressed… For a few Rands more you could book other beach facing hotels. Carpets need a clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. All in all a bit overpriced for the experience.
