    Nice character hotel, very good position”

    Close to beach, nice patio for drinks overlooking the sea, friendly service

    This is an old hotel with some nice features. The lounge area is warm and friendly and the hotel is situated just over the road from one of the nicest beaches in Port Elizabeth. Its a stones throw from the Boardwalk Casino as well as other restaurants and spots on the beach. The rooms are spacious and clean but the bathrooms only have a bath/shower....no separate shower. Not a deal breaker though. It's rated 4-stars but I would probably say its more of a 3-star hotel. I only checked in at around midnight and tried to order a salad and a glass of wine but was told that they only had sandwiches and no wine! All in all not a bad hotel and would stay there again when on business.

    Enjoyable stay”

    We stayed at the Beach Hotel from the 2nd to 4th of January. We stayed in 2 Executive rooms which are to be recommended. The rooms were spacious and had lovely outlook. The one on the ground floor suited my disabled mother (not in wheelchair but can't walk far). It looks out to the back of the swimming pool and across to the sea. This room is set up as a double with twin beds and has a small sitting area with a sleeper couch. We had the executive room on the first floor. It has a four poster bed and small sitting area with a sleeper couch. (We didn't use them so I can't comment on how good they are. Both rooms had spacious bathrooms with walk in showers and lovely big baths. The upstair room has a large balcony while the room below has a small balcony. The hotel has 3 restuarants. The verandah which has pub food, a buffet restaurant and Ginger an a la carte restaurant. The burgers were the only food I'd recommend on the verandah though the other restaurants were excellent.

    Lovely view, friendly staff, beautiful decor

    Lovely short weekend stay, staff very friendly and accommodating - we were not happy with our initial room and we were given another with no problems at all. We only ate at The Verandah which was a limited menu but was reasonable, we had the snack basket and ploughmans platter and both were very nice in presentation and taste. Bed a little hard, pillows a little soft but had no problems sleeping, Room 2 is seafacing and a minimal amount of noise filtered through but wasn't a problem. Room was clean with a bathroom that had a separate shower and my favourite - a spa bath! We were surprised that the garden was a little overgrown and needed weeding but forgot to mention it. 8/10 for The Beach Hotel

    Gorgeous hotel 😍 Ok customer service. Cool room set up; I love how the rooms make you want to just chill there with a balcony garden chairs and table looking to the ocean; wide sliding door that creates a large room feel. Comfortable bed. Like the espresso machine, large modern bathtub and shower. Just amazing all round...it’s a pity we could only sty for limited days of our holiday. The only downs is that they could warm visitors of upcoming events hosted at the hotel. The throwers on the bed need a little cleaning.

    Time for a new look”

    I enjoyed the staff they were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend that the Beach Hotel, look into refurbishing the rooms of their hotel. The downstairs area is lovely it just doesn't match the hotel rooms themselves. I think its time to modern up the rooms, fluff up the beds a little (scatter cushions can do wonders). You have a prime location, use that to your advantage by making the hotel more luxurious.

    Reaasonable, but not 4 stars”

    The stay was good and whilst the hotel does offer more that would qualify it as a 4 star hotel, it does require some TLC. The grounds, building and the like needs some TLC as they are showing signs of aging, cracks broken tiles and aging railings. The air-conditioning in our first room did not provide cool air and the room was across from a service entrance with a fair amount of traffic. On the upside the staff did move us to another like room which was much better.
