we hosted a work cocktail function recently at No5 Boutique Art Hotel and was exceptionally happy with the service, catering, staff, everything. I would highly recommend this hotel for a event and for accommodation as well

Awesome. The room was large with excellent beds. Bathroom was like a spa. Food was excellent. One block from beach which made for a nice walk. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Only regret was that we were only there one night/day.

No 5 Boutique Hotel is part of the Mantis Group, which Group we had experienced before in Shamwari - which is a really first class wildlife experience. This boutique hotel is conveniently located in Summerstrand, a few blocks up from the waterfront. The rooms are really very generous in size; beautifully decorated and very private/quiet at night. The auditorium is... More

I've made a business dinner reservation and it was my first time. The venue is stunning and the staff very friendly and helpfull. The four course meal was delicious. The venue was easy to find. I'll recommend it to anyone.

Great visit to Port Elizabeth in May 2015 and the wonderful No.5 Boutique Art Hotel - very comfortable rooms and relaxing atmosphere in the bar and dining rooms - and with enjoyable food and wine made for a great stay.

My stay here was awesome. Highly recommended for business or leisure. Great staff and great location. Food was also great. There is attention to detail on every aspect. Love the wine cellar and movie room.

Very comfortable and beautiful with Art Deco Stil furniture. Rooms at the ground floor are dark, I recommend rooms in the 1st floor. Breakfast was good, service at the reception excellent, very friendly and helpful. Service in food and beverage at breakfast was average and cleanliness in general should be improved. But a good address in PE and very comfortable... More

After having our wedding reception meal in your dining cellar, we were left less than impressed. We did not receive 5 star quality food, neither did we receive 5 star service. Firstly the food: • The six of us that ordered the lamb shank were ill afterwards. The honeymoon weekend was ruined! • The quality of the food was not... More

We stayed here because it was close to the Port Elizabeth airport (10-15 minutes) and we had a very early flight. They packed up breakfasts for us as we were leaving before official breakfast hours. We were warmly greeted by the staff and taken to our suite. The hotel is beautifully appointed. We would have loved to stay a second... More

We really enjoyed the hotel, room and environment. Food was good, pool lovely and it was very restful. It wasn't the best on our tour but very high up. Staff were not quite as tuned in to guests as at some places. Welcome and service level just slightly less than elsewhere. Very formal feel to the place though very relaxed.... More
