Walking distance to beach, boardwalk etc. Clean rooms and hard to believe it is still a 3 star hotel. Friendly staff and good breakfast but the main restaurant can be pricey . Close to all amenities with an abundance of restaurants close by

We use the hotel at least six times a year but nothing is in place to ensure that repeat visitors get acknowledgement for their support - in fact, the more you use the venue the worse the treatment. On arrival, no security was available to open the parking at the back of the hotel - had to phone for service....

Coming from out of town to hospital visits in PE is always a bind. The Humewood Hotel is a great place to stay, right on the beach front. It is clean, well appointed and provides great breakfasts. We found dinner in the restaurant a bit pricy though! Regular tourist coaches lend an international travel flavor, so the visit can be...

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...
