This would not be a place I would have chosen to stay in, but it was ok, just for a night., The room and bathroom were ok, the bed comfortable. When I checked in, I asked for the wifi code ad given the wrong one. Eventually, after trying it several times, I managed to get the correct one, but that only gave me limited access to emails but no internet. I was too tired to sort it out. Breakfast was disappointing. Cereal and scrambled eggs with trimmings. No fruit. No filter coffee, just instant. Next time I will go elsewhere

Not a bad experience in general but avoid room GH 9 if possible. It has an absolute horrible smell to it and no bathroom extractor to assist with the problem. Although we booked and paid beforehand, the room was advertised for R120 per day less than what we were quoted and thus paid. We may try again next time albeit a diffirent room, for sure.

Nice lay out but it is not bed and breakfast as advertised.The Internet is advertised as free but the link is very weak and slow. It is very ideal for a family holiday or for friends who love cooking. The rooms are well equipped with fridge, cookers, cooking utensils, microwave, glasses, cutlery and napkins.What is just needed is to buy the necessary ingredients if you like cooking..

Room Tip: If you travel in a group, chose the rooms which are A n B

This hotel was not the Ritz by any means, but they were friendly and the room was quite large. It was quite difficult at first to find it as we were driving in Port Elisabeth for the first time, it was not exactly on the main road. The free Wifi was a bonus, although breakfast was a little disappointing. However, very reasonably priced plus free parking and the people were welcoming.

a three week stay in south africa for the world cup was the ultimate road trip- we had a blast! however bishops inn was a major disappointment. ridiculously expensive for what was basic accommodation and a poor breakfast. we expected to pay over the odds at some establishments but this was obscene. reception staff had a 'take-it-or-leave it' attitude. it is just set back from the beach, but unfortunately in front of the oil refinery, which the website neglected to mention. okay for a quick overnight visit but i would not recommend for more than that. secure parking.

Stayed here for 3 days (minimum time allowed) during Englands world cup visit. Paid at least 3 times what would have been the standard room rate. Too cold anyway, but pool the size of a bath, tried to charge extra for dreadful breakfast too. All the atmosphere of a morgue, would be 1 star maximum if in Europe

This place was advertised as 'luxury suites' but I stayed here 3 nights and felt ripped off for evert minute. The expensive room had no proper shower or heating and the decor was drab.
