“A totally disaster”
Reviewed 14 March 2010

Just visiting Port Elizabeth is a bad choice. However, it you need to go there, please do not choose Victoran Villa Guest Manor.
The pictures on the webpage are misleading. The first thing we needed to ask for was new - clean - sheets. The bathroom was dirty, actually everything was dirty. When we pointed out to the receptionist that we wanted to have clean sheets in the bed, they just tried to defend themselves and said that nothing was wrong.... hm.
For your own best and for a great stay in South Africa, we highly recommend not to even look at this place.

We pitched up in Port elizabeth in the middle of a 3 week holiday with just three things on our minds 1 - Catching a flight to Jo-Berg very early in the morning 2 - Getting some much needed laundry done and 3 - A bed for the night with easy access to the airport at a reasonable price.

Victorian villas won on all three counts. It is just 10 minutes from the airport, has a really good coin-op laundry just down the road and the B&B is comfortable with large air conditioned rooms, a lounge and spacious dining room. There is ample on site parking behind formidable security as the area looks a little rough after dark.

The property is a converted row of 3 Victorian houses knocked together in a tasteful way. The decor is modern and claen and the staff are very friendly. The perfect place for a one night stopover because that is all the time you will want to spend in PE, the town is a real dump with nothing for the tourist except the Boardwalk, a Disneyesque attempt at a casino, shopping and eating complex.

We were away very early in the morning and missed breakfast, but the staff made up a mountain of sandwiches, fruit and muffins for us and left them in the fridge for us to collect.
