I was there for the ironman race and the event was held facing the hotel so the location was perfect for us. Breakfast was pretty diverse and staff was always around to make sure we had what we needed. Coffee was immediately served. Location was perfect for us as it was directly in front of the race location

This hotel has seen better days! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was as every where in South Africa very filling. Our room was booked for a sea view room, long in advance but we had a side room with the air conditioner not working properly on the first night. There were no other rooms available apparently!

This was booked as just an overnight stop at the end of the garden route prior to going onto Kariega game reserve. We did not have any great expectations but we're happy with the large and comfortable room which had good sea views. Interesting to see all the preparations for the Iron Man challenge the next weekend. Dinner in the...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are friendly and the rooms are lovely, room 44 is particularly nice, with a little sitting area and perfect sea views. The hotel is right next to the board walk Centre, and just across from the beach. There are plenty of restaurants around but the Verandah in the hotel serves lovely food...

I stayed here for two nights. There is good and bad about this hotel, hence I gave it overall average score. The location is great, right across the beach, and next to the Boardwalk. Most of the staff were friendly. The size of the room was fine, but the decor and furniture was just dated and should be changed very...

Booked 3 rooms for business colleagues on the photos we saw on the booking.com website. The rooms are old, bathrooms have old bath with showers in them - rooms have old single beds and the carpets are old and have a bad smell. No sea view from the room! Stay away!

On a stunning day one of the best places to spend for lunch as it has a good view a small but tasty menu . The food is fresh the beer is cold but slightly expensive these days , often there are daily specials the sangria on a hot day is a excellent choice Love this venue worth the visit

We stayed here with our two friends for 4 days at the end of trip along the Garden Route. The hotel is situated across the road from probably the best beach in Port Elizabeth and right next door to the Boardwalk, with all its shops and restaurants.

Loved the position- right by the boardwalk and the beach and the pier. Great morning walk or jog along the sea. Fabulous verandah to have drinks and breakfast. Very well maintained. Large room with large bathroom, great pillows .
