“Convenient for the airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed here because it was convenient for the airport as we were arriving on an evening flight. The hotel is a fairly typical business type hotel. The staff are friendly enough and reasonably efficient (apart from the bar). The hotel only serves breakfast which is surprising. The breakfast was pleasant and the staff friendly and efficient. The rooms are a decent size with decent furnishings, all very typical of a corporate hotel. The room I had was at the front of the hotel and you do get some road noise in the morning. We did have a drink in the bar but the service was slow and I think we were the only ones there. They did have a log fire in the bar area which was very welcoming.

Stayed over for one night, on Sunday evening. Comfortable room, everything that is needed. But very noisy, both exterior ( harbouur traffic) and interior ( neighbour or hotel facilities?). Not expected from 4 star establishment!

Room Tip: Away from main route and harbour?

Lovely weekend had in PE. Top service received from the Paxton Hotel. Will definitely stay there when next in PE. Nicelyu situated, close to a small shopping centre and close to the beach front where we visited the Boardwalk.

Staff are very helpfull and polite. Rooms are luxurious although a bit of noise coming from adjacent rooms. Food was EXCELLENT catering for my special dietary needs. Lounge is nice for having meetings in as well.

This was nothing special. We chose it as a stop over and close to the airport. We had hoped to spend the evening wandering around the town but the staff at the hotel told us it was not a good idea walking around the town at night. We thought they served dinner but the place was dead.
The rooms were nice and the beds clean and comfortable which is all we needed really. Other reviews comment on the location etc and this may have been a poor choice for our expectations.

The stay at the Paxton Hotel was pleasant and comfortable. The hotel offers the best value off all the hotels on the PE beach front.

I found the hotel very neat, great upkeep and maintenance - it still feels new, and appropriately located.

Another good South African hotel on our tour but it was just too far out of town and away from the seafront area. The view is over the industrial harbour. There is a pool but it is tiny for a hotel of that size. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable .There was no free internet in the rooms and the prices charged to connect were ridiculous . You could access wifi in the lobby (in certain corners ). We did find a nice restaurant and cocktail bar across the car park so it was ok for a one night visit . Breakfast was good .
