“Best B&B in Port Elizabeth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Excellent location close to the Boardwalk and Casino....which means easy access to good restaurants, shopping and the beach. Jurgen, the owner, has two properties right next to each other and it is well organized and very CLEAN. All the staff are very personable and the grounds to the property are well kept. I was ready to move in permanently. The room was comfortable and the breakfast amazing. If you are driving a car you can park inside the gate in a secure location. Very secure. The photos displayed on this page are real and exact.

Room Tip: I like the rooms on the back of the property by the small pool.

This B & B is more a hotel than a little guest house, however still very personal with great service.
Very nice & spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and more than you would expect in a B & B (fridge, microwave, coffee machine, honesty bar).
If weather permits, you can enjoy the little garden and the pools.

You can tell straight away that this place is run by a german. Everything is well maintained, the staff is very helpful and organized almost everything we desired for. The B&B is located close to the beach and casino....quite central to everything. Rooms are big and clean, breakfast is also awesome. I can highly recommend this place.

I stayed at this B&B for 2 nights on business. The location is great, quiet area yet close to beach and casino complex. Other shops and restaurants are also not too far away. Rooms are set in a neat garden with a small pool.
The room was neat, spacious enough, with a fridge with an honesty bar, a microwave and a coffee plunger, something I appreciated. There are a couple of DSTV channels, only wish the had been a few more such as a news channel for instance. I did enjoy the German channels though.

Breakfast was great, loved the continental choice. There are a few choices, and also cereal and fruit and plenty of fresh coffee.
The staff are very friendly and helpful as well.

The main thing for me when traveling alone is safety, and I felt quite safe, as I was able to park inside with only a short walk to my room.

I would definitely stay there again should I go back to PE in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the gardens

What a wonderful surprise. My wife and I have stayed here twice and on both occasions we have enjoyed the friendly, quality service offered by the staff. The gardens are neat and well kept. Its location close to the beach front and the Boardwalk complex is ideal. The honeymoon suite is wonderful for couples having a weekend getaway. The rooms are clean and the beds wonderfully comfortable. The breakfast choice was also a wonderful surprise. I loved the omeltte. I highly recommend Africa Beach! It is certainly is great value for money.

Africa Beach offers comfortable rooms in safe sourroundings, a nice garden, a good breakfast and evening entertainment at the Boardwalk Caqsino Complex. The beach is very close. I would have liked to stay longer.
