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

A standard hotel room, but some features that make it stand out: -very large shower with bench -safety deposit box big enough for documents and computer - the biggest we've ever seen! -directly across from the waterfront, with a pleasant walkway, beach areas, and restaurants -short drive to the airport -note that wifi is free for only one hour daily...

I have stayed there 4 times before. Perfect location-near to beach and Restaurants. The staff are so friendly and professional-makes you feel extremely welcome and no request is too small. Super breakfast and 2 outstanding gentleman in the Bar-Valentine and LUyanda-you can discuss any subject with them-they rate highly in my books.

Stayed over at Town Lodge since we attended a birthday party close by. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Clean and comfortable room with a great view of the ocean! Affordable price made it great value for money.
