“Good hotel”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Used hotel for one night as stopover to Safari. Nice comfortable room for family of 3, they had placed a full size single bed for my 14 year old which was nice. Clean, comfortable and very handy for the boardwalk.

We have stayed here four times and enjoyed every one of them. The rooms are large and comfortable, the views over the ocean are great. We stayed in Port Elizabeth for many years and loved the place. The only problem we had was the black mould in the shower. This means that the shower is not cleaned and disinfected regularly. Unacceptable! When I reported that to the front desk, the lady was mildly amused. We were not.

Very well located with Boardwalk just a walk away. Rooms are nice with spacious bathrooms. Please note that WiFi is free only for 15mins and furthur use is chargeable. I would advise choosing a room on ground floor which is convenient to park your car and load/unload luggage.

Stayed here for just one night passing through PE for Lesotho. The central lobby is grand and reminds one of a great colonial palace. The rooms are large with great views over the indian ocean. Staff are friendly and the free nibbles and drinks in the afternoon were much appreciated. The pool is on the small size but great for refreshing dips. Breakfast was great but no restaurant meant you had to order take away if you didn't want to go out.

This is one of the best choices for accommodation in Port Elizabeth. I have stayed at the Courtyard three times and have enjoyed every stay. This time we stayed in a suite - two huge bedrooms en suite and a connecting lounge/dining room/ktichenette.The suite is great value for a family or group of friends and you can park right outside the back door. The view is over the sea and it is within walking distance of the Boardwalk casino complex next door. Some people might find the limited services a disadvantage (the hotel only serves breakfast) but we loved the choice of surrounding restaurants and the fact that there are menus of the room for delivery from some nearby ones. Another disadvantage may be the sounds of passing traffic and ,music from a nearby late-night club, but that is one of the prices you pay for being right on the beachfront. It didn't worry us unduly. So, top marks for this clean, well-located hotel. This is the premier brand in the City Lodge Group and you can find cheaper options at the City Lodge, Road Lodge and Town Lodge outlets nearby,

Room Tip: We like the floor level with the car park, which is usually the ground floor or first floor, no step...

The Couryard Hotel in Port Elizabeth was a good choice for many reasons: Firstly, the location was perfect, walking distance from the Boardwalk Convention Centre and right on the beach. The rooms were very, very nice. It was huge by any standard, especially the bathroom was larger than most European hotel rooms. I found everything to be clean (my most important criteria) and cannot fault anything.

Room Tip: Ground floor suites can be a bit noisy when people walk past, but you can park your car right next t...

The Couryard Hotel in Port Elizabeth is a good choice if your are on a business trip. It is centrally located in Summerstrand. The hotel has fantastic views from the breakfast area and reception. The service is good, and the rooms are clean and well maintained. It really is your standard business travel type of accomodatin with no additional frills.

THe breakfast is very good and presented in a nice setting.

I would recommend it to any business travel that needs a safe comfortable space the stay and operate from.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Western wing (228) is very quite
