I had read they were in liquidation proceedings but the reviews indicated it was still running as normal until they found a buyer so I took a chance and booked a room for 8 days. Unfortunately there was no hot water until late afternoon on my 2nd day, the 3rd day the electricity went out and even their emergency generator did not come on so the stairwells were pitch black. The 4th day it was the hot water being out again. I would avoid this hotel like the plague. There are many nice hotels in Port Elizabeth so there is no reason to risk encountering the same problems they have had for the last 4 days. I will be leaving 4 days early and moving to another hotel in Port Elizabeth.
I did enjoy the food and people at the hotel. Everyone is very nice and the problems are not their fault. I believe it is because they do not have the maintenance money they need to maintain the hotel as even a 2 star property right now. I think they are just keeping it taped together as well as they can until they find their buyer.
