Very nice place to stay in Port Elizabeth. We where treated very well and enjoyed our stay for the IRONMAN Competition with our family. Had a reservation snag entirely our fault on one of the rooms and thanks to the office front desk managers especially Nozuko saved the day. They also had early 4am breakfast available for competitors. As a Marriott gold member you get some of the perks as well..loved this place.

Had a quick one night stay at the hotel. The hotel is situated on the busy road at Port Elizabeth where there are number of hotels to stay. The WiFi speeds were decent, breakfast spread had diverse options for vegetarians. The hotel has plenty of meeting room options for business and MICE travellers. Just as you cross the road, you can try options for jogging and running etc. overall, a nice experience would come back again to experience the property.

Great location, friendly staff, adequate room. We stayed here using Marriot airmiles points for the purposes of a family emergency. The hotel leaves a lot to be desired. The room we were given was tacky, tired and in desperate need of an update. No iron/ ironing broad in the room, no gowns and slippers. The towels were dinky little things. The staff, while very friendly, did not understand their own systems and managed to inconvenience us having to check out and in again every day we were there. The view looked out over an empty lot filled with rubble.

Wifi is patchy and slow and signs you out every few minutes.

The rooftop pool is more like a small pond overlooking the air conditioning vents on the roof.

Breakfast in the dining room cost R195 - outrageous! And room service was exorbitant (if you do stay here, do not bother to eat here - there are plenty of great places to eat in PE close by at a fraction of the cost for much better food).

The outside bar terrace is quite nice - when a giant tour bus isn't parked smack bang in front of the hotel blocking the view!

If you are paying to stay here - don't! the Radisson blu is down the road and is cheaper and a genuine four star hotel - shop around, you can get much better deals in PE!

Stayed at this hotel for one night on a B&B basis. Had an evening meal at adjoining De Kelder restaurant and therefore didn't venture far from the hotel.

Large hotel with many rooms looking out on to the seafront. We were fortunate to have a large corner room on the 7th floor with two windows one of which faced out to sea.

The hotel and our room were both very clean. Staff very pleasant and efficient. Checking in and out undertaken with the minimum of delay. Good buffet breakfast of the usual variety.

Swimming pool more of a plunge pool so don't expect to be able to go for a swim.

Stayed: February 2018
