“Another Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

A small, very friendly hotel, with a great food selection, and very obliging staff. Our 3rd visit & it won't be the last. The SAGA group no longer dominate as it is not in their brochure any more (More fool them for dropping it). I cannot understand "Gadmans" review, as the Hotel does not have room service!. Agreed it could do with a spruce up, but this does not detract from our enjoyment. If I was to be over critical, the fact that the main road runs past the hotel does make sitting on the terrace noisy at times, but this is compensated by the fact the excellent beach is only about 200 yards from the hotel entrance. I can certainly agree with everything that has been said about Jackie. Nothing was too much trouble. Roll on 2013.

Room Tip: Any with a sea view.

The Humewood has seen better days, but is still popular with group tour operators--the Saga group seemed to dominate the place. We only stayed one night, and didn't have any major complaints--except for the room service waiter berating my wife because he thought she'd stolen a spoon!
There are plenty of other better hotels along this beachfront strip, so don't let a package agent slip this one in on your South Africa tour.

The staff was very friendly here, especially Jackie! No trouble was too much for her.
The hotel is a bit outdated though, but the location and Jackie compensated more than enough for this.
We sure like to come back again

good hotel if you are an older traveller, not for young people.
food, not a big selection but it was all VERY good.
dining room very intimate.
there is a fair amount of traffic that passes the hotel.
the saga rep. melanie wilson was amazing she would do any thing to help you with no hesitation.
go on the apple express good value for money.
i do recommend going on the schotia safari (book it privately over the internet its cheaper)
port elizabeth is not a pretty city but very interesting
not much entertainment at night
