I have again stayed at the Town Lodge Port Elizabeth, and I am very pleased to note that they have maintained their high standards of service and cleanliness. The Town Lodge is very well situated and has an excellent view of the sea. It is close to the Boardwalk casino and Nu Metro Boardwalk, as well as a reasonable number... More

As a frequent business traveller to Port Elizabeth, I cannot recommend that anyone stays anywhere else. The check - in at Reception is always painless and prompt, accompanied by smiles from all staff, who are always there to please. The rooms are well prepared, and recently started sporting a welcome treat, card and towel art - a nice touch. The... More

No complaints on anything, nice staff, clean, comfortable. Typical business type hotel with small rooms, which is fine if you just plan on sleeping there. Spend a bit more and stay at the Courtyard next door, if you want a bit more space and luxury. Overall, good budget stay over for a night or 2. Well located within walking distance... More

The Town Lodge was the perfect place to stay on a two day business trip. The rooms may be small but they have everything you need and the hotel is clean and the staff friendly. The beds are comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. On top of this, the breakfast is really good - smaller spread than some... More

This was a great location, very friendly and helpful staff. Huge breakfast selection and amazing views to enjoy your meal or a sundowner after work. The beach is only a short walk across the road if youre keen for a swim. Couldnt ask for more.

Not only did this happen to me, but it also happened to my colleague who met me. A week prior to travelling to this location, my colleague and I independently booked and confirmed reservations to this hotel via our corporate travel service. Our travel agent is American Express, so it is a legitimate global corporation. We had a guarantee reservations... More

Stayed there for 4 nights. It was hot as my room was sea facing and got the sun the whole day. Aircon did not work. Complained about this from day one. Nothing was done. Did not even get feedback from management. Am going to sue them to get my money back. If you want a stay in hell, go there.

Having reviewed dozens of hotels across the globe, I am still in awe of Town Lodge Port Elizabeth. It is a smart, modern building and the BEST looking and BEST situated Town Lodge Property in South Africa. Despite being 4 years old, the hotel still looked new during my 1 night stay with my wife on 14 February. The view... More
