I found the hotel to be centrally situated, well within walking distance to beach, boardwalk etc. All staff were friendly, helpful and competent. The passageway carpets were dirty, but rooms, linen, bathrooms, restaurant and lounges were all clean. Will definitely use this hotel again.

The Humewood Hotel in Port Elizabeth is a great weekend stay, because they halve their rates on the weekend, if you stay for at least two nights. It is a lovely old hotel, well cared for with friendly staff. A buffet breakfast is included. It is very central, although the sea view rooms are noisy, so ask for one of... More

The food was tasty and plentiful. The view from our room was beautiful. The hotel is very pretty downstairs. Our waitron was extremely tentative and followed us from the bar area to the dining area, He also assisted us with our corkage

Really affordable, functional and clean hotel. This is a 3 star hotel that meets these requirements. Nice adequate breakfast. Good comfortable bed. Close to all amenities with an abundance of restaurants close by.

This was a return visit after having stayed there about 5 years ago so we were clued up on what to ask for and what to expect. The Humewood Hotel provides simple, clean, very comfortable rooms and friendly, relaxed service at an affordable price. The real bonus is the location which means that early morning walks along the beachfront or... More

We had only booked one night because we would arrive from the AirPort and go to Knysna the next day. We expected a basic accomodation that would be decent and perfect for one night. However we were shockend about the condition of the hotel. It is so outdated that everything looks filter as well. The wall covering and the carpet... More

We had an anniversary lunch celebration for one of our colleagues who served 25 years with our company on a Sunday afternoon. This hotel is situated on the Beach Road facing King's beach and is easily accessible. We had our lunch at the Sandpiper Restaurant inside Humewood Hotel, the layout of the restaurant is very cosy. The lunch buffet was... More

This building is very well located on the Port Elizabeth waterfront. It is old but reasonably maintained. Poor access to reception and rooms from parking at rear. Excellent hotel breakfast. Some of the fittings a bit tired but overall reasonable value for money.

Title says it all. Ive just checked in so yhe proof is in the pudding. As an altrrnative to the regular mainstream hotels, its quite on par. The rooms are good and the facilities meet all your business travelling needs. My only gripe is the off street parking.
