“Great location, beautiful hotel”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Classy place with probably the best location in Port Elizabeth. Close to the beach and the main sites in town, but at the same time not in a crowded district.

Everything was kllen and nice, and the service was great. Seaview rooms has a nice view. The hotel is very close to the airport, which is nice. We were a bit afraid that there might be a lot of noise from the airport, but there was none.

Overall relaxed hotel and a great base to explore Port Elisabeth

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view

The location of the hotel is excellent, and is walking distance from the beach, resturants and the boardwalk casino area. The rooms are spacious and clean, excellent bathroom facilities and excellent view from the room, as we stayed on the 3rd floor. Would however prefer more comfortable seating on the balcony. The kichenette in the room was very convenient and having the basics was great. Will definitely stay here again, staff are friendly and helpful. The complimentary 17:00 - 19:00 drinks and snacks time was a great idea for relaxing and enjoying the hotel view overlooking the beach.

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.
