Traveled to Cradock twice with a third trip coming up....we make a point of staying here before and after our adventures in the veld. This place truly knows what customer service is all about! You will not go wrong staying here!

Last week, my husband had to undergo heart surgery. I spent the night at the Town Lodge Summerstrand. When making my booking I had made a couple of errors, the reception staff were wonderful, they changed the booking and gave me a room with a sea view. They were polite, caring and extremely helpful. The room was clean, the water... More

Third time I've stayed there this year. Great location on the beachfront. Clean, comfortable rooms and great bathroom. All staff always friendly, efficient and willing to help with any requests or local information. Wide selection of restaurants within 1 km radius - from formal 4 star to beach front fast foods. Casino, movies and some boutique shops next door. Secure... More

My arrival to this hotel was a kind of plan b) after a poor experience in a different hotel. I have to say it looks much nicer from the inside (rooms included) than the outside. Other aspects: - The staff was very friendly and helpful. - The rooms weren't particularly big, but ok for a couple of days - Minor... More

I have been using this hotel for 3 years now as my first choice for an overnight in PE. Location excellent, room ideal for a night or two, always clean and nice staff. Never bother with breakfast as I prefer to eat out but very happy with the service I receive here consistently.

Stayed at the TL for 4 nights and it was great all round. The rooms are more than adequate, the bed comfortable, the shower excellent and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful and all at good value for money.

Don't let the exterior of the hotel put you off when you arrive. It looks like an institution or hospital from the outside, but once inside the decor is modern and clean. This is not a classy comfort hotel, but a good value for money hotel, which us great for group travelers or budget conscious holiday makers. The rooms are... More

As a business traveller I choose to stay at the Town Lodge PE, as the rooms are adequate and clean. The staff are always friendly and smiling, which makes staying at this establishment a pleasure. The hotel has quite good noise insolation when you are in your room, and generally only hear muffled noises from the passages.

Good hotel, clean rooms, does what it says on the tin and more. Staff at the reception were welcoming and really helpful. Night food also was very tasty. Bar was a bit limited, but did what it should. Breakfast also really good.
