“Great in many ways!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

The location of the hotel is very good - close to the airport, opposite the beach, close to restaurants, right next to the casino. Rooms were clean and spacious. Only slight negative is the very busy road in front of the hotel, but noise cannot be heard with doors closed at night, so no problems sleeping. Staff were great, especially Andile who went out of his way to help us. Lusanda and Morgan were great too, all staff were great to be honest! Very good experience.

The courtyard is a good comfortable hotel right next to the Boardwalk entertainment complex in PE and directly across the road from Kings Beach. All the spacious rooms have their own balcony with at least a view of the sea. It serves an excellent breakfast. There is no evening meal option - but the hotel is close to all the local restaurants (so you can eat at different places every night all week). WiFi is available (at reasonable cost).

Room Tip: You do get some noise from 'Barneys Pub' across the road - so ask for somewhere quiet if you...

We ended up staying in Port Elizabeth unexpectedly and chose Courtyard without any research. Overall a very nice hotel close to The Boardwalk where we had dinner. Large room and bathroom and comfy bed. Would recommend.

We have stayed on several occasions at this Hotel we like the situation close to the beach,
restaurants and part of the Boardwalk casino complex with alot of things to do. Ideal for families, kids can swim in the hotel pool , ten pin bowling and kids entertainment centre at the boardwalk. The rooms a very spacious , clean and well stocked with amenities. Shuttel service to boardwalk so you can park your car in secure parking at the Hotel.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are nicer with balconies and the best would be to the left of reception.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.The kitchenette was a much appreciated extra to our spacious rooms. We enjoyed the complimentary drinks and breakfast as well as the view from our balcony. The staff were helpful and friendly. We will stay here again. The hotel orgonised transport from the hotel to the airport for us. We were really impressed with the service and the person who drove us to the airport. We did not enjoy the noise from the business across the road!!!!!!

We only needed a one night stay in PE, but I still took to Tripadvisor for advice on the best place. We stayed at 5 other places in South Africa which were fantastic, but this was a real dud. The lobby/common area was nice enough but we were placed in the farthest room away which was pretty gross. The room was extremely dated and the bathroom in particular, smelled and there was mold on the ceiling of the shower. Being that this was one of the more expensive places we stayed at, I was pretty shocked. What added to our poor experience was the woman at the front desk-- she was rude & dismissive to us. I will give a good review to the nice gentleman on the evening shift who was very pleasant and gave us a nice wake up call.

The main thing about that hotel is the location, very close to the Boardwalk, and to many restaurrants in the neighborhood, walking distance to Hobie Beach & Kings Beach ..
The lobby is beautiful and very welcoming, including complimentary drinks 5-7 PM. The breakfast is quite ok as well, with a beautiful view to the sea. Just a shame they don't serve dinner in the hotel
The rooms are spacious and clean. The only thing is that they can be a bit loud, there's a busy road between the hotel and the beach and the rooms aren't perfectly isolated, but for the rest, this is my preferred hotel in the area
Tip for runners: The gym has a quite good treadmill with an astonishing view of the sea, at sunset the colours are beautiful. If you want to venture outside, there's a 5 km concrete / wood path next to the sea heading south.
