A highly recommeded stay
We had an awesome stay at the Beach hotel. The staff were friendly helpful and efficient. The room was spacious and neat and had everything we needed. The only thing that could be improved on was the milk supply....3 milks for 2 people and no biscuits for that late night coffee which was provided the first night. All in all a very good experience.

Very Good 8.0
Our stay was very pleasant albeit short. Great position on the beach, good parking and great restaurant called Ginger on premises. I had one issue in that the water in the taps was not clear, it almost looked rusty.

Good 6.0
Beach Hotel Port Elizabeth.
Hotel is in a good location and the Ginger Restaurant is great. Front desk staff were helpful and attentive. Hotel was let down in the following ways. 1. The bedroom was old, tired and dated. 2. Terrace bar was unclean, food waste on floor and made the whole hotel feel a bit run down. 3. Breakfast was ok but the staff were inattentive and too busy chatting amongst themselves. On arrival we were greeted with a sign for HIV testing in one of the conference rooms. Not a great welcome. Some of the photographs on Hotels.com are misleading; for example the pool area looks nothing like the pictures.

Awesome service, much appreciated.
HI, I had an awesome stay. Short but all my expectations were met. I stayed here before and will stay here again. The staff were friendly and Greaterman was outstanding as usual. As there was a walk for cancer underway all the roads were closed, but one of the security ladies went on a mission to get me to a point where I could have access to my uber. This was absolutely awesome.

Exceptional 10.0
The property is quiet and has a quality feel to it which makes a nice change following all of the hotels I stay in. The breakfast I had was definitely the nicest offering I have sampled in any hotel I have stayed in period :-) The staff are nice and friendly and the hotel felt somewhat homely.
