Based on other reports of where to stay in Port Elizabeth this hotel stood out as being well worth trying. Well it was and we had four nights here and it was a superb stay.

We booked this hotel based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We stayed there for 4 nights. First impressions were WOW! The hotel is immaculately clean and well decorated - every corner you take there is something lovely to feast your eyes upon. Our suite in the main building was spacious, well equipped and... More

My wife and I returned to No. 5 as she surprised me for my birthday. I was actually hoping that we were going there again! This boutique hotel touches all of my buttons from the fabulous rooms - spacious, comfortable and equipped with everything we wanted! We didn't even think of dining out as the comfort of the lounge and... More

We stayed for one night after arriving in PE before driving to Kynsna. The location was perfect - just a ten minute drive from the airport and really straightforward to find even without satnav. We were over in the seperate building where there was a massive living room. The room was excellent with a large bathroom, nice outdoor seating area,... More

We stayed here November 2013 and totally enjoyed our stay. The Presidential Suite was very nice, clean and comfortable and was hard to find any fault. The bathroom was also very clean and the lay-out wa beautiful and unique. From the moment of arrival until departure we were treated very well and have absolutely no complaints! I must say that...

My husband and I always stay here when we travel to PE and we are never disappointed. The rooms are huge and very luxurious. The food is good. We love staying here as it feels like home - beautifully decorated home. The one thing that could be improved upon is the TV channels in the room.

We spent a night here while making our way along the coast in March 2014, and were extremely impressed with the facilities and service alike. The suite we were booked in was enormous and totally luxurious with an ultra-comfortable bed, huge fluffy towels and a dream-like rain shower. The gym was also really well-equipped and comfortable.
