“Not so hot”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

Unfortunately I have to say the room I spent 2 nights in, was not very comfortable, and I had to complain about dirty bedding - not good. Was offered a small bottle of wine and a note apologising for the inconvenience, but the second night the base cover was still dirty. At least I had clean pillow cases the second night! Breakfast was so-so. After all the good things I heard about this B&B, I expected a lot more. Sorry guys, no stars from this side.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

We just came back from spending Easter break at PE and Africa Beach was fantastic. The rates were very reasonable - value for money. It was a short stroll to the beach and close to restaurants. It was just 10-15 minutes away from airport and close enough to do day trip to the game reserve. The room was clean and breakfast was great. The reception and breakfast room were absolute pleasant. The garden was stunning.There were ample parking spaces. We used a transport/taxi company recommended by African Beach - which was good. Diane, Nicole and Roche were so hospitable - friendly and helpful. Thank you so much to Africa Beach team for making our stay so pleasant. We will come back and will stay longer! Keep well! Wan

We began our South Africa trip in PE and stayed one night at Africa Beach. Honestly, the city of PE doesn't have much more to offer than you can do on one day. After our arrival we went to the beach in the afternoon (which was nice) and after checking out the next morning we visited the city centre of PE, climbed up Donkin lighthouse at Donkin Reserve and had a look at the City Hall - that's it - and then we continued our journey towards Addo.

BUT: The location of Africa Beach is brilliant. Nice, cosy and tidy rooms with private bathrooms, near to the beach and not far away from the airport (around 7 km), excellent breakfast and two little swimming pools - we liked it very much. And we cherished the worthwhile travel advice our host, Jürgen, gave us. Please talk to him for restaurant recommendation or Safari trips. We would not have heard about Schotia Game Safaris without his help and we would have missed an amazing experience! Thanks, Jürgen!

Everyone who plans to go to PE, Africa Beach should be your decision and you will not regret it.

Travel to P.E. regularly on business and must say Africa Beach was the best find ever.
Easy access to restaurants close by and good for the relaxation stroll after work at the beach.
I really enjoy the team of Africa Beach, who are always very helpful in any way.
Jurgen is a real map-drawer and always finds the places I need to go to ;).
Thanks also to the others and their smiles and help.
The guesthouse offers everything I need on my trips. A big plus is the fast wireless internet, which they offer for free (bonus!!!).
I will stay a "regular" at Africa Beach, for sure.

Room Tip: I like rooms L to P and A to D. Modern and garden facing.

This was our third visit to the Africa Beach - and once again it was excellent. Superb rooms, comfortable, clean and comprehensively equipped, with a well stocked, and very reasonably priced mini bar. Once again, we followed the host, Jurgen's recommendation and ate at the Blue Water Cafe, an brilliant venue within safe walking distance. Can't fault the Africa Beach and would definitely stay here again.

Nice B&B in a quite area of Port Elizabeth not far away from the airport. It is in walking distance to the beach and to restaurants. It has various different looking rooms and suites garden facing. There are two swimming pools. They have a safe carpark. We stayed there for 2 nights and will definitely come back next year.

Went here on business. Stayed for 6 nights. Nice place. Affordable. Great breakfast! Clean. Nice rooms. I would like to have seen a cash-bar in a common room open all night, but the bar in each room worked fine. 2 pools inbetween the houses. Would definitely return!
