Friendly helpful caring staff who went out of their way to assist with all sorts of requests and even made a special effort to cater for special diets which was amazing! The hotel is perfectly situated right on the beachfront and close to many restaurants, but you need not eat anywhere else as their breakfasts, lunches and dinners were scrumptious... More

Stayed overnight and was very comfortable with a nice warm bed in this cold weather. Lovely breakfast with a large range of items to choose from and friendly service particularly from reception staff.

I only went for a meal, so can only review the restaurant. I went with friends for a lunch prior to attending the 'Last night of the Proms' at the nearby Feathermarket Hall. (What a concert!!!) I was aware that it was a buffet meal, so I was not expecting 'fine dining'; but what a meal! Only one hot soup... More

What a throwback to the past this place is - but in a charming, enjoyable way! Décor, ambiance and food firmly rooted in the 1960s/70s but it doesn't suffer for that (unless you are a thoroughly modern Millie/Martin who likes everything to be state of the art). It's a big, green slice of welcome on the otherwise uninspiring Hume/Beach Rd,... More

I visited this elegant lady again during a quick visit to PE and can only confirm my previous comments about this hotel. Staff makes or breaks a hotel, and the Humewood hotel has great staff. From Jackie who cares about getting you a good booking, to all the other staff who made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast is outstanding... More

We enjoyed our stay in this historic hotel. Our rooms were always very clean and we were treated with special Humewood hotel chocolates every day. The breakfast was nice and good value for money. All of the staff that we met, from the receptionist to the cleaner to the waiters, were very friendly. The hotel is conveniently located close to... More

We've been regular visitors to this hotel for a number of years. Ideally located close to Kings Beach and the newly landscaped gardens immediately opposite the hotel. The verandah is a little noisy with road traffic at times but the adjacent lounge area is much quieter. For us the highlight of the Humewood Hotel is the Sunday carvery lunch. A... More

Having stayed at this particular hotel for both business and pleasure the past decade, I whole-heartedly agree with some of the reviews of this splendid PE landmark hotel: "Old Faithful" and "Gracious Old lady of Port Elizabeth". While I'm writing this review, I am sitting on the terrace of the hotel, outside the Quarterdeck (bar) having a cold one after... More

This hotel is an old timer dating back to 1920. From what I am told it is still in the family. It is a three star hotel, but the rooms are clean and neat even though old in style. The dinners are buffet style and limited but quite tasty. The rooms facing the main road are noisy especially on weekends.... More

We took advantage of a well priced weekend special recently to spend the weekend in Port Elizabeth. Our first impressions were favourable after an exceptionally friendly and helpful telephone conversation with Jackie who organised a sea facing flatlet for our family for the weekend. On arrival, we found a well appointed two roomed flat and very friendly and attentive staff.... More
