Conveniently close to airport

Posted 16-Jan-2017 on Hotels
Upon hearing that we had to leave very early the next morning to catch a flight and would therefore miss the 8am breakfast service, the manager was kind enough to prepare something for us the night before. We were generally happy with the guesthouse. It is set in a beautiful old manor and has a very nice garden. Our only complaint is that the walls between rooms are much too thin and we were disturbed by noise from nearby rooms. There's not too much to see or do in that part of the city, but Port Elizabeth airport is only a 15 min drive away.

Friendly stay in Friendly City

This was a very comfortable place to stay with good service levels. There was absolutely no problem to check in early and when we asked if it was possible to extend our stay, we were immediately shown to another room that was still available. Some complaints are that the breakfast is sparse and the parking is a little difficult to maneuver. I would gladly stay there again.

Very supportive and nice staff. Very good internet connection, excellent conditions of the room and the hotel, tasty breakfast. A little bit away from the main points at the city.

Friendly convient place in PE

Pros: Friendly staff and homey B & B. Lots of charm. Will go back again.
Cons: Dining room was under our suite so we could smell the toast cooking but we had to have an early start anyway.
Location: We needed to get to the airport with easy for the AM so this worked well and close to the N 2. Quiet area.
We only stayed one night but recieved a warm welcome and for sure will go back again. Had a cozy suite room as we stayed with our adult son. Food was great and hosts wonderful. Lovely garden and bar area. Very charming. Even hosted two resident owls in the garden.
