This spot is close to the airport, I've stayed here a few time and there is always great service and the rooms are always clean. The owner even offered to lift me to the airport the next day when my shuttle never arrived!

Amani is a small guest house located close to Port Elizabeth Airport and about 15 minutes from the beach. We received a very warm welcome when we arrived. The room was clean and cozy, with kettle and fridge. Breakfasts were relaxed with views of the pool. Our host also gave some great advice for the rest of our journey. Comfortable...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amani Guest Lodge, tucked away within the tree-lined suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is a welcoming retreat for those seeking the best of city living, combined with the warmth and comfort of a true African lodge. "Amani" is a Swahili word that means 'place of peace,' carefully chosen to represent the sheer luxury and relaxation of this sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city living. The African cultures are known for their warmth and hospitality. Amani Guest Lodge is dedicated to maintaining this important theme, treating each guest to a unique, indulgent experience during their time in the Friendly City, as Port Elizabeth is affectionately known. Our sophisticated decor, attention to detail and graceful gardens all play their part in ensuring that our guests are pampered and relaxed at Amani Guest Lodge. In addition, Walmer is centrally located. Amani Guest Lodge is, therefore, within a few minutes' drive of the airport, major shopping centres, doctors, hospitals and even the beautiful beaches for which the Eastern Cape is known and loved. *** New ownership since 25th February 2016 *** ... more   less
