“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

I have been a regular guest at margate place since my son started university in PE a few years ago. The personal service of everyone, Cornell, Alex, Susan and the other ladies makes you feel certain that you will be excellently catered for. I have referred a number of people to Margate house and they have been excellently looked after. The ambience of the guest house, from the rooms, the breakfast room to the grounds always make me feel thoroughly rested even when its just an overnight stay.
I recently tried another guest house in PE and my not so nice experience there proves my point that if it aint broken dont fix it. Margate place it has been for me and Margate place it will be when in PE

Dear Bolu,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

We are so pleased to hear that your stays with us have been pleasant, and it is always a pleasure to have you (and sometimes your son) with us.

We look forward to hosting you again soon in the Friendly City soon!

Kind Regards,

My family and I were exetrmely happy with the accomodation provided by Margate Place. The facilities, neatness and staff made the stay pleasant and comfortable for us. Closely situated to a mall, the beaches, casino, etc. it is extremely ideal for an enjoyable stay. My family and i agrre that Margate Place will always be the benchmark for any other accomodation options in beautiful Summerstrand, PE.

I have been coming to Margate Place for the last 9 years and every year they not only meet our expectations but constantly exceed it. Cornell, Alex and staff is always friendly, willing to go the extra mile and whatever was promised is always delivered.

Thank you Cornell and Alex for once again making our stay memorable.

It's like coming home. My 4th stay at Margate just confirm everything I already know. Everyone from Alex, Marilees and of course Cornell, do their best to make you feel comfortable and happy. The residential area is more than safe with close proximity to all amenities, the beach and the Boardwalk. Well appointed rooms with braai area available. Just love it!

Margate Place is a short walk from the wonderful Port Elizabeth beachfront. 10/10 for location and 10/10 if self-catering is what you're after. This four star establishment offers comfortable, well appointed rooms and is situated close to the nearby attractions of the Boardwalk Casino, the lovely walks along the water-front and the Port Elizabeth University.

One would have to dig deep if forced to find anything to criticise - if I had to find two things, these would be (a) that I found the pillows to be a little large and hard for my personal taste and (b) an added news channel (such as Skye, CNN or similar) on the limited DSTV channel choices would be an improvement.

Don't let this put you off however, this is merely a matter of personal preference. The owner and staff were attentive and polite - I highly recommend Margate Place for both business and leisure visitors. I booked through a website, www.staysa.co.za.

The staff was always very helpful, and if we had a request, they would do everything possible to fullfill it. A lovely place to be. Close to all services and the beach. Residential area is quiet and safe.

If you are staying in the Port Elizabeth area this is the place to stay. This is our 3 visit and as always Margate Place offers excellent accommodation at a good price. Be sure to visit the De Kelder Restaurant at the end of road for your evening meal ( 5 mins walk, max. ) where you can enjoy great food and wine and your car is back in the secure compound at Margate Place. You will not be disappointed with anything at this location, with Alex looking after you.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, My tip, if they have a room available, BOOK IT !
