“A quick visit!”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

Just had one night here after visiting Shamwari. It was very central to our needs and our room had all the comforts we needed. We did not have time for a swim but the pool looked very inviting! We were very close to the beach and extremely convenient for the airport for our early morning flight to Johannesburg.

We stayed here for 1 night as part of our Garden Route Tour and arrived late in the afternoon and left the next morning.

The room was lovely, spacious and well equipped with a kitchenette and lounge area with a large bathroom. It opened onto a lovely courtyard with a small pool and the gardens were beautiful.

The Guest House itself is in a good location, close to the beach and Boardwalk but seems a bit "Fort Knox" with access control and high walls. Not sure why as the surrounding area seemd safe and well lit. It had it's own secure parking area.

The staff were all lovely and the breakfast was the best we had in country which is high praise indeed.

I can't really comment on Port Elizabeth as we didn't have time to see much of it but it seemed quite industrial apart from the immediate location which was nice.

Would I recommend - yes
Would I return - yes.

Stayed for one night at 5th Avenue Beach House at the start of our drive of the Garden Route. Great location just 10 minutes from PE airport and very easy to find. Close to the beautiful beach which was a lovely place to have an early morning walk. Our family of 9 stayed in 4 rooms and all were large, modern and very clean. My parents who were celebrating their golden wedding anniversary were given a fantastic suite with a separate sitting area and a jacuzzi bath. Every member of staff was friendly, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. Drinks and snacks are available via an 'honesty bar' with very reasonable prices and this enabled us to just stay in and relax after a long day's travelling. We just wished we could have stayed longer!

Booked this guest house blind not knowing what PE had to offer. Rooms nice, safe and an OK location. Was a little disappointed that the room was stripped before we had finished breakfast and checked out, also we were not made to feel that welcome when we arrived or during our stay. Although everyone has an off day therefore don't let this put you off.

I have stayed at 5th Ave. on three occasions while on holidays in PE and can wholeheartedly recommend it. All of the staff are superb and friendly. The rooms are clean and modern. Situated in a great location across from the beach... I won't consider staying anywhere else in PE. If you are used to booking at large chain hotels, staying in a family-owned guest house of this quality is eye-opening. They really make you feel a part of the family.

My husband needed to come to Port Elizabeth for business and our daughter and I came along for the trip. The 5th Avenue Beach House was the perfect place for us to stay. The service was exceptional, greatly exceeding anything we have experienced at other luxury hotels. The room we stayed in was quite large and included a nice sized bathroom, full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. It was nicely decorated with modern furnishings. The location is ideal and within walking distance to restaurants, grocery store, casino and the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
