It might say 3 stars on the front door, but that is clearly not what you get when you step inside. This place is really punching well above its belt. Service is swift,crisp and friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Walls are thick and you have really good privacy. Stunning view from the rooms that overlook the ocean. The buffet...

Decided to stay with them for our Babymoon. Made a sea view booking. Booking with Jackie was great. She was friendly and helpful. The Hotel is well kept and the room we stayed in very nice. I would go back, but what really needs work is the friendliness of the staff. From booking in at reception up to the lady...

If you looking for a good clean and friendly hotel in Port Elizabeth then look no further. Staff are friendly and the breakfast is the best. Optional extra buffet dinner very worthwhile so much food to choose from and then still go back for more. Right on beachfront and ideally situated for relaxing beach front walk.

I didn't stay at this hotel myself, but recently organized a surprise birthday party for my mom, which Dave and his team executed beautifully. Dealing with Dave was an absolute pleasure and the food was delicious. The menu was very extensive with every whim catered for. The staff on duty for the party were great. The rooms are very spacious...

We had a lovely time at the Humewood. The rooms are spacious and the chocolates on the pillow a real treat after a long day out. I would recommend the morning breakfast. The breakfast menu was always different and delicious. We will definitely be back next year:)

We visited your pub to watch the football last night. The barman was so astonishingly rude that we were gobsmacked. When asked whether the football would be screened, we received nothing but a look of contempt. He literally spoke no words, only snorts and grunts. We stood there for about 2 confused minutes, whilst he went about other tasks. He...

I have this problem with 5 star establishment because most aren't and should not be classified as such because they do not live up to the standards required. With 2 and 3 star establishment the rules are much simpler because you see what you get. The Humewood is a very clean, honest, well looked after, well run middle of the...

Great place to stop over. Was surprise that they had room for us on the spur of the moment. Did not make any reservation as we were 1 day ahead of time for our other accommodation booked in Port Elizabeth. They were happy to accommodate us for the night. Rooms were large as we had a family unit. Food was...

Many thanks for your comment and once again apologies for any misunderstanding.

We love staying at the Humewood. Rooms are comfortable (sea view) The breakfasts are very good and we loved the evening carvery. Nothing fancy but good food and very delicious desserts. Being so close to the sea the walk is wonderful. Just a lovely hotel with very pleasant staff. Highly recommended.
