“Lovely Time”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

We used our 1 week time share here in early May. What a surprise. Lovely ocean view from our bedroom. Pretty well maintained grounds. This place is nice and central to most attractions in the beachfront. We went for lovely beach walks and it's within walking diatance (10min) to casino.

Stayed May 2014

Stayed for 2 nights after a disastrous one night at Chapman Hotel up the road. Were welcomed and shown our room on the top floor. Clean and comfortable, bathroom a little pokey and shower not so great (needs upgrading) but we don't live in the bathroom so all was good. Not noisey at all and had two good nights sleep.
Breakfast was buffet which we all enjoyed, food fresh and well presented. My husband especially liked the way the food was kept hot in the pots instead of bain maries. Friendly staff and clean surroundings.

We will be back

Room Tip: Top floor even though some don't have a good sea view.

We were pleasantly surprised by the stay. The room was spacious, clean and almost everything we needed taking into account that is not a 5 star establishment. The view and location is also perfect. We enjoyed the breakfast served every morning. Couple of things detracted though. Our room had a couple of cockroaches the size of small rodents. The breakfast was good but, when certain stuff run out it is not replaced. There weren't a two point plug in the room.

We stayed at this hotel for one night in December 2013. This hotel is an exceptional value. We arrived to find that the rooms we were allocated were not big enough for our families, and they immediately accommodated us with new rooms. The service was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. We were very happy with the location, and the kids enjoyed the pool. The breakfast was fine, but could have been better. Nonetheless, for what we paid, we felt that this hotel was a great find!

I would def recommend this hotel.
It is in an ideal location minutes walk to the broadwalk and half a minute walk to ocean basket and other restaurants in the complex.
It is right opposite mcarthurs beach so can easily walk to kings beach or hobie.
Hotel very clean, brilliant views from hotel balcony as up on hill.
Breakfast is a good quality of food with a wide variation.
Pool is lovely and clean with brilliant views of beach.
And for all you cat lovers theres a ginger cat called ginger who resides in the hotel !
Next time I go to Port Elizabeth I will not hesitate to book into this hotel for another stay.

Brookes Hill is a hotel and apartment complex. I would expect that everyone should have to comply to the same rules and standards. It is part of an upmarket hotel complex and their name is attached to this - so they should care!

On the positive side...It has an amazing view and great location close to a variety of amenities including restaurants, the beach and shopping. It has a beautiful pool and lovely BBQ area.

We rented from one of the owners and paid R1200.00 ($120) per night and stayed for two nights. I have stayed here on 3 other occasions. We were advised a few days before arrival that our room was changed. On arrival the owner was not there to receive us, because she was playing 'Bridge' - she send the cleaning lady. This should've been a sign. The room was neat, but NOT clean. For example, the shower had long hairs clinging to the tiles. Floors had dirt on it. Things old and broken. We were not provided with any additional linen for the sleeper coach. We checked the closets and found some bedding. It was filthy. The next morning we requested clean linen - the cleaning came in to provide us with clean linen.

The WiFi is almost always off and has a very poor signal. For this location and being in Port Elizabeth I expected much better quality for this kind of money. My experience in Cape Town was superior compared to this one AND at a much better rate.

I would not recommend this to visitors, unless there is an improvement in the cleanliness of the private apartments.

Good morning

This review is for a private suite that is managed and run by a private owner and not by Brookes hill management and Brookes hill hotel. Brookes hill hotel does not have any control with regards to the cleanliness and standard of the interior of the unit.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights from 25 - 26 December 2013. The rooms were nice and spacious and the location of the hotel was good.

We found the continental breakfast to be disappointing as there was a very small selection of items to choose from if you did not want to have the full English breakfast. Their fruit platter was practically empty and never refilled even though we did not arrive that late for breakfast and we had to ask both of mornings for cutlery as there never seemed to be a complete selection of cutlery for each place setting. We also did not get coffee one morning despite asking for it as there was only two staff members on duty and neither seemed willing to do it and kept checking to see if we were still sitting at our table. We eventually gave up and decided to go back to our room to make our own coffee.

This would definitely not be a good place to go for some quiet rest and relaxation as the place constantly seemed noisy with the amount of children running up and down the passages.
