Eltham Lodge
Ranked #84 of 232 Port Elizabeth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 January 2013

To us Eltham Lodge is the best B&B in Port Elizabeth with really friendly owners and just a great place to stay. The accommodation is very clean with fresh linen and towels, it's really comfortable and ideally situated. Brian and Margaret are great hosts and do their best to ensure your stay with them is very enjoyable. Margaret serves a fabulous breakfast, makes you feel so welcome, is very helpful and one of the nicest people you could meet. We have stayed here twice, will definitely return and would recommend it as the perfect home from home place to stay in PE.

We arrived at Eltham Lodge, very early in the morning and were extended a wonderful welcome even though we were not expected until much later. Margaret was very kind and served us a hot English Breakfast, the same morning of arrival; perfect after our long drive south. (Loved the scrambled eggs!)
We loved the property and room size, lodge location and best of all, the warm wonderful personal touch extended to us. We enjoyed the walk to the beach, just a few minutes away and my son was thrilled to make friends with Buster – the adorable dog.

We visited PE on family vacation in early December, and were very impressed with our stay at the Eltham lodge. Very cosy rooms, friendly ambience, quiet and very green environment - truly a home away from home. My son Eugene enjoyed the hearty breakfasts and running around the gardens after Buster the "Eltham" dog. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting PE and definitely look forward to staying there again next year.

Thanks for the warm hospitality.

ELtham Lodge is a small B&B about one street back from the beach front and only 10 minutes from the airport. The accommodation is separate from the main house in the back garden. Our room was a double but we had to squeeze in a fold away bed for our 3 year old son. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Margaret and Brian, our hosts, were so generous and friendly. Our son took to Buster the dog straight away and are now life long friends! We had such a fabulous time hanging out in the garden in the evenings with Margaret and her family. The room was clean and adequate for a B&B with little extras like a fridge, microwave, and DVD player.
Breakfast is made to order every morning which is great. Most places want to know your order the previous night. It is great value for money and families with small, well behaved children will be well looked after!
