“Not impressive”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

I wasn't quite impressed with this hotel, for the price they are charging I was expecting much more. First of all the layout of the room made me feel uncomfortable especially their bathroom facilities, I mean the shower is situated right next to the toilet and to tell you the truth you can't go in there after one has showered, the whole place would be wet. The sink is right next to the bed, and the bed is almost on the ground with a bunker on top, you must always be extra careful so that you don't hit your head. Other than that it is situated in a very nice spot, you've got a variety of places to eat next to it and just a few minutes walk to the beach and to the bus stop. I would recommend this hotel if you are really stranded and have no other options.

Reviewed 27 September 2011

The hotel has a very nice price and location: next to the beach, restaurants and small shops and about 2km to The Boardwalk complex.

The negative point I can say is the poor bathroom, even if compared with others formule 1 hotels tha I had stayed. The bed linen and towels are old and stained. Very bad.

The staff is helpful.

I´ll not return.

We spent a sleepless night in this hotel. Bathroom is plastic, the sink is in the room, does not have closet. The bed is bad and the blanket looks dirty. The site is poorly attended. The only positive point is to be near the airport.

All was on order, except that we were given a smoking room and we do no smoke. The stay was great. Thanx!! Hoping I will surely stay with you guys should I return down to Port Elizaberth. I think I'ts about time that you guys change your review entry because it just seems so impossible to complete it properly.

No complaints thank you! The hotel is situated in a great place near all the restaurants and entertainment and we enjoyed it very much. We will be back in about three months time for two weeks.
I think safer parking will be a better idea because the car-watch guys was extremely irritating and persistent!!

Everything worked starting with smooth reception. Would have liked floor cloth in bathroom after shower.
