      Average all round, great location

      Position of the hotel was great however the room seemed old and in the need of new furniture or maintenance; also I booked a parcel sea view and was allocated to a ground floor where the see was hardly visible. Breakfast was also not great; overall maybe a 7 out of 10

      A highly recommeded stay

      We had an awesome stay at the Beach hotel. The staff were friendly helpful and efficient. The room was spacious and neat and had everything we needed. The only thing that could be improved on was the milk supply....3 milks for 2 people and no biscuits for that late night coffee which was provided the first night. All in all a very good experience.

      Our stay was very pleasant albeit short. Great position on the beach, good parking and great restaurant called Ginger on premises. I had one issue in that the water in the taps was not clear, it almost looked rusty.

      Beach Hotel Port Elizabeth.

      Hotel is in a good location and the Ginger Restaurant is great. Front desk staff were helpful and attentive. Hotel was let down in the following ways. 1. The bedroom was old, tired and dated. 2. Terrace bar was unclean, food waste on floor and made the whole hotel feel a bit run down. 3. Breakfast was ok but the staff were inattentive and too busy chatting amongst themselves. On arrival we were greeted with a sign for HIV testing in one of the conference rooms. Not a great welcome. Some of the photographs on Hotels.com are misleading; for example the pool area looks nothing like the pictures.
