I stayed at the Town Lodge in Port Elizabeth for one night, as a stop over. We arrived close to midnight and were promptly booked in. The hotels lobby and pool area are stunning for a 2 star hotel. We payed around R700 a room per night, which is slightly cheaper than a city lodge, but if you're not going to stay in the hotel much, its perfect for family or business requirements.

The only things that aren't as nice as a city lodge are that the rooms are MUCH smaller, the Tv is smaller and that's about it. The bathrooms are equally spotless in comparison to a city lodge and the showers are actually bigger.

The only problem you may have is that the hotel is directly under the approach for the airport, so you frequently hear planes pass by with a huge roar.

There is also nice sea views in sea facing rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room

My first stay in one of this chain of hotels. My room was a small room but very adequate for my short stay, just two nights.
Excellent breakfasts, a very good bar service and friendly staff who really seem to enjoy their work. Perhaps it's PE, everyone there seems to be very friendly!
I and two friend saying at the same hotel, both from overseas and both were well pleased with the hotel.
Unfortunately it does not have a restaurant but there is a John Dory franchise next door.

Room Tip: There are very good parking facilities at the back of the hotel, where the entrance is. The front of the hotel looks out over the Ocean and a small beach area just across the road.

Thank you for staying at Town Lodge PE and for your comments about our hotel. You're right, PE is a friendly place ( it is known as the Friendly City), but we also like to think that our staff are friendly and welcoming at all of our hotels. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again soon at this hotel or one of our other hotels.

My wife and I stayed at the Town Lodge for six days during the early part of September 2012 and I have nothing but praise for the operation of this hotel. The reception staff were always polite and obliging and nothing was too much trouble, they were always available for a chat and a laugh. The restaurant staff were also fantastic, empty plates were always promptly cleared away. The food at breakfast was good and accommodated all tastes whether it be a full breakfast or continental. Bianca was very helpful gave us some good advice.
Our room was always cleaned to perfection, good on you ladies.
The security staff outside looking after the vehicles in the car park were also very polite and quite happy to give advice when asked. Jack was particularly very good and friendly, he was always interested in what we had done that day.
The assistant manager was very charming and interesting to talk to.
I made my booking on line some months in advance and my check-in went very smooth.

In summary, we would definitely stay there again and I would recommend others to stay there. Full marks to the management for making our stay very pleasurable.

The staff at Town Lodge found a special online deal and let us stay at a cheaper rate than would have been in person. The bar lounge stayed open late and had affordable food. Free internet, affordable, and right on the water!

Good location on beach front. Comfortable, clean, well kept, fairly new. No baths, only showers, but thats not really an issue for me ! Good for business, or leisure travel, though doesnt have a spa, or any of that sort of thing - chiefly business orientated, but dont let that put you off it for leisure. Rooms are a little small, but comfortable, clean and well maintained.
No dinners or lunches, but breakfast is available, and good ! Recommended for business, or leisure, as a base to visit PE.
