We stayed one night. Stunning place with fabulous location. Few metres away from the beach promenade where I had an early morning run with the most magnificent sunrise. Very comfortable & spacious rooms. Perfect night stay to break our long journey.

we stayed for a week to watch the 3rd Test match. Our greeting was lovely and set the scene for a lovely comfortable stay. The rooms , gardens and facilities were great. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. personal attention. The only downside was the absence of a rail to aid one getting inand out of the pool. Thank you for a lovely time

Hello Patricia and thank you for your review! So glad you had a pleasant stay and enjoyed the gardens and the breakfast. I will definitely chat to our team about a hand rail, that’s a great idea and an oversight by ourselves. I hope you managed to enjoy the swimming pool, you certainly had a great result with the cricket! Hope to welcome you in PE again. Thanks for staying.

Being a Travel Agent this is a property I sell regularly so it was so nice to be able to visit PE and spend a few nights at this incredible Guest House so that I can now fully understand why my clients always ask to return there. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home as the place, the staff as well as the other guests were all so welcoming. The rooms are amazing and far nicer than many 4 star hotels. I was shown the biggest room (which we were lucky enough to stay in) and the smallest which to be honest is bigger than some of the 4 star hotels I have visited. The breakfasts were delicious and you certainly could not leave there hungry after being offered all that food. This place is definately a home away from home for anyone on holiday or travelling on Business and I highly recommend this to everyone.

This guesthouse really meets all expectations and is ideally situated close to the beach and many restaurants. I only stayed for three nights on a business trip, but my room had everything I needed, was super clean and the atmosphere in the whole hotel is very warm and friendly.

Thoroughly enjoyed last visit to Fifth Avenue Beach House - the place is looking great - rooms have had some upgrading too. Good to see the management taking great care to keep the property in excellent condition! breakfast still as good as I remembered! Full-house omelette, every time - the best! Even the weather was outstanding - enjoyed some time on the beach over the road! Thanks for a great stay - I will be back!
