A la Martha's Guest House provides a really convenint place to stay whether on business or pleasure. Very close to the airport yet within easy reach of the City Centre and Beaches too.Excellent quality accommodation and good breakfasts. Quiet surroundings despite the proximity to the airport. Very well worth looking at in preference to the city centre locations.

Reviewed September 28, 2011

We stayed at A La Martha's Guest house because we had an early morning flight out of Port Elizabeth. The location is ideal: a 3 minute drive to the airport. It is also walkable, although we did not feel comfortable walking in the dark. The price was also reasonable.

When we arrived we were met at the gate after ringing a bell and checked in. This was the last we saw of anyone before we left. We had a few questions about our stay but could not find any employees. The place was vacant other than us. We tried calling both of the phone numbers listed in the guest services guide to contact someone, but no answers whatsoever.

The room was not particularly clean. I did not even consider getting into the shower.

Their website advertised airport transfer but this was not the case. We had to call a taxi from our own phone. We could not get the code to use our room phone because there was no staff to be found. They did not provide airport transfer as advertised.

Overall this was one of the weirdest overnight experiences I've ever had. I would recommend travelers use one of the other guest houses located nearby.
