Certificate of Excellence
East London is one of South Africa’s best kept secrets with a multitude of attractions but still maintaining that small town feel. The Hemingways Hotel is situated adjacent to the Hemingways Casino and Hemingways mall. It affords easy access to all the major highways, national roads and the airport. Inspired by Ernest Hemingway, this sub-tropical styled hotel offers a unique island lifestyle break, right in the heart of South Africa.

Awesome hotel, love the look and feel of the decor and the rooms. The lush tropical gardens provides one with the feel of a island stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is in close proximity to the shopping mall.
