Positive Reviews

Fabulous location

Guests are pleased with the prime location, which offers enviable beach front views and is in close proximity to many of the top attractions in Port Elizabeth. The quiet neighbourhood is also a bonus for safety-minded guests.

Restaurant worth a stop

Guests are excited to pull up a chair at the popular Ginger Restaurant, and the dining experience doesn't disappoint. The sleek and stylish atmosphere is a great accompaniment to the innovative menu, and whether it's freshly caught seafood or a homemade dessert, many guests have a memorable meal here.

Friendly and attentive staff

The staff here come in for their fair share of praise, with guests describing them as both friendly and attentive.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms are unrenovated

Some rooms are better than others, and guests can be unhappy with accommodations that haven't been upgraded. Older decor is in stark contrast to public areas of the hotel, and guests are left wanting a bit more luxury. Nuisances like noisy air-conditioning and leaky faucets are also unacceptable to guests who feel that there is room for improvement.

Not all views created equal

Guests complain that side sea-facing rooms provide a very poor glimpse of the ocean. It's only possible to see the beach front from a limited part of the room and guests feel that these rooms are hardly sea-facing. Additionally, guests are surprised to find that there are also rooms with no ocean view at all.
