We were upgraded to a junior suit on arrival which was a nice surprise to start. The rooms were beautifully decorated and appointed with free wifi, the views and location excellent. Breakfasts were superb.
We found the hotel staff extremely helpful and informative during our stay, readily advising on local restaurants, booking boat trips and arranging taxis and transfers.
Good value for money, pity the building looks like it's straight out of Disneyland.

Stayed for 8 nights at the Beach. Service was absolutely excellent, from the first night to the last. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Ate at the hotel most evenings in the Verandah restaurant which had a lovely atmosphere, including a very good pianist on a couple of evenings. Hotel bar was clearly used by locals in the evenings which we enjoyed. Quality of food was excellent and good value for money, as were the bar prices. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, we would use the hotel again and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others thinking of staying in Port Elizabeth.
We read some excellent reviews before choosing Hitgeheim, and they were all justified! Archie has created a little piece of heaven in these 8 thatched-roof chalets, cozy lounge with fireplace, decks and restaurant. We loved everything about our chalet.....private deck overlooking the river valley, sitting room, comfy bed, open shower. The food was uniformly delicious and beautifully presented. What really makes Hitgeheim special though, is its staff. Everyone was wonderful, and we are especially grateful to Donald & Michael for taking such good care of us; to Peter for a fabulous and informative tour of Addo Elephant Park, and to Archie for arranging our tour days in CapeTown with his son, Martin (who is a chip off the old block!). Archie also arranged our game drives at Schotia and at Amakahla. If you are going anywhere near Port Elizabeth, this is THE place to stay!!
We can't say enough about the marvelous time we had. The food was beyond wonderful, game drives magnificent, hospitality could not have been better or more welcoming. Our Ranger Ruan was well educated and informative. For anyone with children they have a children's program that sets the parents free to enjoy the game drives and other times while they are entertained with their own staff. We are grandparents and had no children with us, but we were impressed about what we saw. We happen to be there for Valentines Day and things were nicely decorated for the holiday, each dinner had animal folded napkins, etc.
