We stayed at the Windermere twice, for our first two nights in PE and again after we’d been on safari. The hotel is in a good location, close to the airport and not far from restaurants in PE. This was our first stay in South Africa and we were warned not to walk around in the night. Our first evening we walked back as it was getting dark thinking these warnings were exaggerated but we did feel unsafe as we were closely watched my locals and this was intimidating. The hotel itself has a very pretty interior and our room was very impressive due to the size of the bedroom and bathroom. The staff were very welcoming and keen to make us feel at home. For breakfast there was the usual spread of cold meats, fruit, cereal and bread. As well as a choice of a hot breakfast freshly cooked off the menu. Recommended

Port Elizabeth was the start of our Garden Route journey. We wanted to stay in PE for a couple of days, and I found this hotel on the internet. it was well priced and fairly central. I am delighted we chose it. It's a family style with nice facilities, a very good breakfast and helpful and friendly staff. We would stay again.

The staff were polite on day of arrival, during the stay and when checking out as well. The rooms were clean and well presented. The place was homely for a stay away from your home. The area is located where access is easy to the beach.
