“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

We were a large group that stayed at the hotel on a business trip and received excellent service. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel well positioned in a quite area but still close to the CBD for business purposes and restaurants.

We found this hotel fine, similar in furnishings etc to the Protea we had stayed at in Knysna, but we were not offered a complimentary upgrade (as we had been there), so we had a view of the carpark/scrubland at the back, rather than the lovely seafront we enjoyed from the bar terrace! The bed was comfortable and the bathroom of an acceptable size.Breakfast was South African buffet and was fine, with eggs/omelettes cooked to order. Location is quite a walk to town, but the seafront walk is pleasant during the day (A little less so after dusk, main street was fairly deserted apart from one or two less than desirable 'characters'!)
The staff let the place down a little, being somewhat surly, and front desk was not able to help us with good driving instructions to our next destination. Luckily I was able to find this myself, then, using the internet, as wifi is free. Also, housekeeping were at the door at 8am, presumably expecting us to be ready to check out already!!

I stayed here for Bly one night while on a business trip.. I wish it were for longer! The rooms are very stylish and roomy. The sea view is spectacular and with the one window ajar I woke up to the sound of the ocean. Bliss. Buffet dinner and breakfast was a feast of flavour and well prepared food. Pricing perfect. Highly recommended. It was unfortunate that the manager-appearing man who greeted me for breakfast was grumpy and the front-desk staff were not attentive and seemed very blasé with all guests, myself included. The rest of the staff were attentive and friendly, especially my barman for the night - what an asset to Protea Hotels! The deck overlooking the ocean is a MUST.. P.E. the Windy City lived up to its name.. But I loved the wind through my hair with the excellent snacks and drinks never in short supply. You can't go wrong with PH Marine

Room Tip: Sea facing, higher floors!

The staff was excellent. The view from the room was amazing.Loved every minute of it. Reception staff was very helpful. The food was amazing though we only had breakfast only at the hotel both days. Our dinners were arranged elsewhere.

Room Tip: All in all a very satisfactory stay in Port Elizabeth. Above par for the food, stay, comfort, rooms...

We stayed here while in Port Elizabeth, and loved every minute, from arrival, the reception staff were excellent, and could not do enough for us, the restaurant was superb, the food was excellent, we had booked a sea view, and we were amazed what a view it was, the room was large and the bed very large, and so comfortable.
The housekeeping team were brilliant.
Every part of this hotel is brilliant, and I would recommend it to everyone.

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room that I ended up with, as it not only included what must have been a king sized bed, but two separate desks which I could work off.

Unlike most South African hotels, I was offered free WiFi of up to 100MB per day, which meant that I did not have to tether to my phone, which was great as I did not have very good reception (most places in South Africa do not offer free WiFi).

Breakfast was great, with the typical buffet one would expect, and the restaurant next door, De Kelder, were more than happy to deliver to my room and add the charge to my hotel bill.

The staff were also very friendly, helping to round this off as a place that I would definitely make use of again.
