I got off a 13 hour flight from the UK, hired a car and drove to this hotel. I walked in and found a lot of building work that had closed a lot of the public areas of the hotel which wasn't a great first impression. The welcome from the staff was great, although we wern't offered any help with... More

Stayed here many times before, and this time we found that the hotel was being refurbished during our stay, this however made no difference to our experience, rooms were superb, a balcony view over the ocean. Staff were warm and friendly and could not do enough for you

I would like to complement the staff at the Courtyard Port Elizabeth. The room had the most amazing view, and everything in the room was just perfect! will go back anytime, and will recommend it to anyone whether for business or leisure.

Stayed at the Courtyard on 20 December 2013 our way to Cape Town. Staff were friendly, accommodation spacious, clean and well priced. Only draw back, no restaurant on premises, but loads in the vicinity.

Used hotel for one night as stopover to Safari. Nice comfortable room for family of 3, they had placed a full size single bed for my 14 year old which was nice. Clean, comfortable and very handy for the boardwalk.

We have stayed here four times and enjoyed every one of them. The rooms are large and comfortable, the views over the ocean are great. We stayed in Port Elizabeth for many years and loved the place. The only problem we had was the black mould in the shower. This means that the shower is not cleaned and disinfected regularly.... More

Very well located with Boardwalk just a walk away. Rooms are nice with spacious bathrooms. Please note that WiFi is free only for 15mins and furthur use is chargeable. I would advise choosing a room on ground floor which is convenient to park your car and load/unload luggage.
