My reservation was done very well, I checked in realy late on the 29/07/2016 into room 117 and everything was in order. The night duty was very professional and did our check in with out any hassles. Breakfast was great considering the weekend special rate we were on. We had a Do not disturb sign on our door for the... More

Many thanks for your comment and once again apologies for any misunderstanding. The incident has been bought to my attention and the staff member is currently pending a disciplinary enquiry regarding this issue, her approach to you and the whole situation is definitely not what we as a hotel expect from our staff and the matter is being dealt with...

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.

Unfortunately this is not a good review as the breakfast was terrible. Open and uncovered yoghurt , tinned fruit and overcooked eggs sums it up. The hotel is neglected and although looks okay really needs a good going over and clean up. The main dining area is nice but without a good manager and chef it is a poor mans... More

Had to spend a night in PE for a business trip. Location is a nicely close to the sea-side, bars and restaurants. The rooms are very clean, smart and well kitted. The staffs are friendly. The breakfast was good too :). All the boxes are ticked! For the price, I am well satisfied.

With it's wonderful location on the beachfront, the Humewood Hotel offers affordable, clean and comfortable accommodation. A room with a balcony is the best! The breakfast is delicious and there is a great selection to choose from. Staff are friendly and efficient.

Have been to this hotel a few times over the past years. We have always found the rooms to be clean fresh and the beds to be comfortable. We have always had a wonderful experience staying here. The food has also been of a high standard and great value for money

Rooms are spotlessly clean with crisp, fresh linen every day. En-suite bathrooms are fully equipped with clean, fresh towels daily. Large rooms with table and arm chairs to relax in. Waking up in the morning on those beautiful, comfortable beds with the fresh breeze off the Indian Ocean and the beautiful view over Algoa Bay is simply magical. The scrumptious... More

Reasonably priced, decent portions. Perhaps better service staff could have improved the experience. No cucumber means exactly that. Also- lamb curry should be made with lamb, not mutton. Have a go, but with caution.

We chanced upon this hotel whilst on a short visit to PE after having seen all the restaurants, cafes and fast food places at the Boardwalk and by the beach! It was a very hot day and we decided to call in just for a drink! However, Sunday lunch was available at an amazing price of ZAR130 each (about £5)... More
