Under the new ownership of Peter and Karl, they have made the place a really nice and comfortable guest house. A great place to stay if on business in PE, good location to the airport. Breadfast is very good, service excellent and an exceptionally clean guest house. Would highly recommend.

The service was excellent and the owners very friendly. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. The gardens are beautiful and rest of the property is very well maintained with a lot of attention to detail. The breakfast was excellent. We will definitely stay at Amani Lodge again.

We stay at Amani for unfortunately only one night. If we knew that Amani was such a peaceful establishment we would've stayed for more nights. Our room was clean and tidy, the night was quiet and Hilde treated us with a delicious breakfast the next morning. Will definitely book again but then for more than one night. Thank you Hilde...

From the minute I arrived at Amani I felt at home. The staff are hospitable and friendly.The breakfast was wholesome and filling. Amani stands true to its name " Place of peace " A piece of heaven in the city. It is also in close proximity to the airport and beaches. I would highly recommend this establishment.

The Lodge is clean and welcoming with friendly staff. However, I suggest that the staff should communicate with clients in English and also put on a common outfit (uniform) so that they can be easily identified. The rooms should also have airconditioners.

The rooms are clean and comfortable the location is fantastic only 1 minute from the airport. Hot breakfast every morning and the best part is Hilde the hostess with the mostest who always... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amani Guest Lodge, tucked away within the tree-lined suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is a welcoming retreat for those seeking the best of city living, combined with the warmth and comfort of a true African lodge. "Amani" is a Swahili word that means 'place of peace,' carefully chosen to represent the sheer luxury and relaxation of this sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city living. The African cultures are known for their warmth and hospitality. Amani Guest Lodge is dedicated to maintaining this important theme, treating each guest to a unique, indulgent experience during their time in the Friendly City, as Port Elizabeth is affectionately known. Our sophisticated decor, attention to detail and graceful gardens all play their part in ensuring that our guests are pampered and relaxed at Amani Guest Lodge. In addition, Walmer is centrally located. Amani Guest Lodge is, therefore, within a few minutes' drive of the airport, major shopping centres, doctors, hospitals and even the beautiful beaches for which the Eastern Cape is known and loved. *** New ownership since 25th February 2016 *** ... more   less
