Have stayed at this hotel on 2 business trips. Location is excellent as very close to business areas in Port Elizabeth, easy to get to from the airport and right on the sea front. The rooms are a good size, well laid out and very clean. Breakfast is excellent with a good selection and good quality. Price seems good value and I will definitely be happy to stay here again

I have stayed at this establishment over many years for both business and pleasure. The last time was towards the end of November 2013, just after returning from an international trip. I have stayed at other City Lodges throughout South Africa as well.

This City Lodge (like the others) offers great rooms and service. The hotel's decor has been great over the years and is better now after an upgrade since the last time I was there. It is very mordern and now offers a meeting room facilities.

The rooms are well decorated and offer a comfortable night's sleep. The staff are friendly as has been the case over the years.

The hotels offering is hard to beat in the South African context, especially.

I will surely be returning to this household South African brand.

Room Tip: A Room close not far down the passage does it for me

Like any other City Lodge in the country, great place to stay - very close to the beach... Walking distance (beachfront). Great view. Close to other amenities (eateries). Would definitely go back again

Room Tip: Top rooms are always 'tops' - great view.

So if you are looking for a hotel that has a humidor for your cigars, or a personal butler this is not it... But if you want good value for money, a comfortable, clean bed... A large comfortable room, then this is the place for you.

I am staying here right now, and found this to be an above average 'budget' hotel.

My room has aircon, there is a pool and gym... And really there isn't much else a business traveler could ask for...EXCEPT... The wifi didn't work. I called the help number (external company to the hotel) and was told that "they are working on it"

Stayed here for a night for a business trip.

Everything was standard City Lodge Fare, acceptably mediocre all-round, although my room did not have a remote for the TV (just as well, though, as it meant I could get some work done) but I'm sure it would have been rectified had I bothered to ask.

My real grip is with the pillows they use - they may as well have not used any at all. Time for a bedding upgrade guys...
