We went for the weekend to East London and enjoy the stay at the Hemmingways Hotel - it was friendly and welcoming. Well situated and tasteful. The breakfast had a great variety of dishes and all freshly made.

Dear Mthatha visitor,

What a wonderful review you have posted, and it is with great honour and humbleness that I will share this review with my staff.

We are in the process of creating an exciting and new food concept for our Key Largo Restaurant, and trust that you will enjoy this as much as you enjoyed our current offering.

The staff are most certainly what makes the hotel and we are very fortunate to work in such beautiful surroundings. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to be your hotel of choice on your return visit to East London.

Kind regards

A really enjoyable experience; from the welcoming drink to the efficient check out.

The room was well equipped. The bathroom, with bath and shower, had sliding doors that opened onto the bedroom. I could chat to my wife while she was in the bath. The breakfast was a buffet with a large choice, I especially like the muffins.

Located next to a shopping centre with cinemas, a choice of restaurants were available for dinner were one not to dine in house.

I went for a pleasant run on the Sunday morning; turning right into Two Rivers Road. In no time one is in the country side! it is a nice run into the valley of +- 4km, and a good workout on the return. Unsure what the traffic might be on weekdays, also can only be run during day light.

I would stay there again were I to return to East London

Dear seasoned traveller,

Your review really depicts a couple who really enjoyed the luxuries our hotel had to offer. We are always proud to receive such wonderful feedback.

As a runner you will be pleased to know that East London is known for their challenging park runs in Nahoon, and we will furnish additional information for you on your return. There are various other cross country trail running experiences you can also participate in.

Your review will be shared with our team, and I am sure that they would be delighted to welcome you back.

We look forward to meeting you when you are next in town and thank you for your patronage.

Kind regards

The rooms were a bit tiny but was very plush. The bathroom had a large tub and it opened into the bedroom. Valet services were good and room service was excellent. A quaint Victorian hotel in the modern day. Receptionist are very friendly and helpful. There is a nice mall adjacent to the hotel too.

Stayed: February 2014

Dear Dubai traveller,

It was great to read your positive feedback and that you enjoyed your experience with us.
The services adjacent to the hotel most certainly do add value to our guests, and we are pleased that we were your hotel of choice.

I would also like to recommend that should you require a larger room in future most hotels are prepared to arrange an upgrade to a more spacious room at a reasonable rate, once you are a guest in the hotel.

Kind regards

Having travelled the world a bit, and having been to world class hotels, Southern Sun Hemingways, East London is among the top! A very warm welcome with complementary drinks, fresh quality linen that soothes the skin, comfortable ambience and the excellent service from all staff groups!

Room Tip: All units are excellent - the architecture of the hotel is such that most rooms that I have been into are excellent, to my knowledge. Rooms to the west get the sun in the afternoon but the Airconditioning keeps the room at comfortable temperatures.
