Have stayed at this hotel on 2 business trips. Location is excellent as very close to business areas in Port Elizabeth, easy to get to from the airport and right on the sea front. The rooms are a good size, well laid out and very clean. Breakfast is excellent with a good selection and good quality. Price seems good value... More

I have stayed at this establishment over many years for both business and pleasure. The last time was towards the end of November 2013, just after returning from an international trip. I have stayed at other City Lodges throughout South Africa as well. This City Lodge (like the others) offers great rooms and service. The hotel's decor has been great... More

Like any other City Lodge in the country, great place to stay - very close to the beach... Walking distance (beachfront). Great view. Close to other amenities (eateries). Would definitely go back again

So if you are looking for a hotel that has a humidor for your cigars, or a personal butler this is not it... But if you want good value for money, a comfortable, clean bed... A large comfortable room, then this is the place for you. I am staying here right now, and found this to be an above average... More

Stayed here for a night for a business trip. Everything was standard City Lodge Fare, acceptably mediocre all-round, although my room did not have a remote for the TV (just as well, though, as it meant I could get some work done) but I'm sure it would have been rectified had I bothered to ask. My real grip is with... More

This a just a fantastic place to stay. I stay about once a month and have never been disappointed with any part of the service received. Always spotlessly clean and smiling faces. Reception speaks clearly and aee very cheerful all the time. Just a little bit on the expensive side though.

I stayed at the City Lodge for one night. It is a good business hotel with friendly staff and decent rooms. The front rooms offer a beautiful view of the ocean. Conveniently close to the boardwalk and the casino. The check in staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have frequented City and Town Lodges for many years and have never been disappointed. This hotel is fine - although I did probably get one of the less desirable rooms on the ground floor with no sea view.
