Positive Reviews

Excellent location for the airport

The fact that this hotel is only four minutes’ walk from Port Elizabeth International Airport’s entrance is a significant reason why guests choose to stay here. It’s so convenient being able to wake up in a leisurely fashion and calmly check out before strolling to airport.

Good value, clean accommodation

According to feedback, these no-frills rooms provide good value. While guests acknowledge that the rooms are maybe a little basic in nature, there’s no denying that the beds are comfortable and that everything is kept very clean by the housekeeping staff.

Friendly and professional staff

The hotel’s staff members are praised in guests’ comments for the good service they provide. Guests appreciate the helpful and friendly environment, allowing them to fully focus on enjoying their stay in Port Elizabeth.

Negative Reviews

No in-room tea/coffee making facilities

One slight source of irritation guests have is the lack of any means to make hot drinks in their rooms. It would be nice to have a kettle or capsule coffee machine at their disposal when thirst strikes. However, there is a vending machine in the reception area offering hot drinks all day and night for a fee.

Small rooms

Guests mention that they find the rooms a little too small for their liking. More space would certainly help increase guests' relaxation levels.
