Positive Reviews

Excellent service

Authentic decoration and design

Location, location, location

Visitors say this hotel's location is about as good as it gets in Port Elizabeth. The proximity to many of the city's main attractions, as well as the central business district, earn frequent mention from satisfied visitors.

Negative Reviews

It can be noisy

Guests say that this hotel can be a bit noisy. The floors tend to be on the squeaky side of things, and the rooms are not fully soundproofed, so there is plenty of sound pollution on the busier weekend nights.

No TV in rooms

In keeping with its historic nature, this hotel does not offer TVs in guest rooms. Disappointed reviewers think this is a shame, and expect to find cable TVs in their rooms at this price point.
