good hotel if you are an older traveller, not for young people.
food, not a big selection but it was all VERY good.
dining room very intimate.
there is a fair amount of traffic that passes the hotel.
the saga rep. melanie wilson was amazing she would do any thing to help you with no hesitation.
go on the apple express good value for money.
i do recommend going on the schotia safari (book it privately over the internet its cheaper)
port elizabeth is not a pretty city but very interesting
not much entertainment at night

This Hotel is well situated on the beach front of Port Elizabeth close to several entertainment venues and a good swimming pool complex. The road between the hotel and the beach can be busy and noisy much of the daytime and various night clubs are in the vicinity thus the road noise can continue into the night.

The hotel facilities are limited, especially lounge space, but overall it has an attractive character worthy of its nearly 100 years of existence. It is used by Saga Holidays extensively and they have their own small lounge. There is limited entertainment some evenings.

The restaurant and food are of qood quality with a nice range of dishes and variety during the week.

We had a modernised bedroom which was comfortable and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. As it was on the front of the hotel, closing of the windows was essential for the noise but the air-conditioning was satisfactory.

There was a serious problem concerning the digital room safes which I have reported on separately in the PE forum to see if others have had similar difficulties and lost valuables as a consequence. It is perhaps worth asking for one of the Reception safe deposit boxes where a two key security operates.
