Four women travelled to the All Cape Bowls tournament and booked in at the Chapman Hotel. On arrival we found the lady at reception / manager unfriendly and unhelpful. This was pretty much the pattern throughout our stay. The staff however were very friendly and always trying their best and going the extra mile. The Blackbeards restaurant was exceptional and...

We met our friends for breakfast - the view is stunning but the service was atrocious. None existing to be exact. There was no food on the buffet table no coffee in the machine and no waitresses to help either. After waiting for 30 min we decided blackbeards/chapman hotel wont see us again.

Firstly I have to say that the staff are excellent, they are constantly trying to do their best with what they are given to work with. This was truly a "Faulty towers" hotel. Our mattress was torn, you could see even on the replacement mattress that it and the furniture in the hotel is ancient. Faded chairs, torn leather chairs... More

My daughter and I stayed at Chapman's for the VW Herald Cycle Tour. We were given a room overlooking Algoa Bay, the view was great. Being on the Beach front, means everywhere is within 20 minutes, especially the cycle tour start. The Chapman is fantastic value for money, we were given breakfast and a voucher towards the evening meal at... More

We stayed in the Dolphin Nook, 2 bedroom, self catering apartment. Positives - Safe location with nice view. Safe parking in front of the unit. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Never saw the cleaning lady but she was excellent, thanks! Negatives - Check-in took forever, and we were only 2nd in the queue. Not very friendly either. Apartment... More

We have chosen this accommodation for one night to catch our next flight to Durban on the following day. This hotel was the worse of all accommodation we have had in this trip (9 in total). - The staff at the reception was bored - not everyone wore a proper dress code or uniform - restaurant was very dark, the...

מלון מקסים ממוקם קרוב לכל מה שצריך! חוף הים, מסעדות ומתחם בילוי ברים ומועדונים. במלון יש מסעדה ושירות חדרים. החדר ששהיתי בו בקומת הקרקע, מרווח מאוד, עם מקרר ועמדת קפה. יציאה מהחדר לדשא של הבריכה ולמסעדה. השירות במקום הוא הכי טוב שקיבלתי!! בעל המקום והצוות דואגים לכל צורך ובקשה, בחיוך וברצון. מתאמצים להשביע את רצון הלקוח מתוך אהבה אמיתית למקום...

Good location, all rooms with sea view but we were in No. 5 which is right at the end of the block closest to the road and just a couple of hours after unpacking our suitcases we were broken into. The sliding door was breached and luckily we had taken all our valuables with us so hotel towels, our toiletries... More

Located in suburban Summerstrand with good ocean and harbor view, close to bars and restaurants, and reasonably priced, Chapman is a very good alternative to staying in Port Elizabeth. My room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast (not included in room price) was plenty and good with pleasant service.
