Recent guest reviews

I often spend 4 or 5 nights a year at this place and always happy to come back. A special touch was when I stayed over in the month of Ramadan. Staff prepared me a tray of normal breakfast items early in the morning and on the second occasion made the breakfast buffet available to me earlier than normal. These little things that value your customers show why I keep coming back. Keep it up

Stayed over for one night whilst in PE on business. Convenient location Great seafront view from the dinning room. Efficient check in and out. Underwhelmed by. Micro size TV in the bedroom. Cold coffee at breakfast. Having stayed at the Wave crest hotel a few day early where I paid two thirds of the price for lunch, dinner, bed and breakfast my thoughts were next time a B&B.

Great hotel. Perfectly placed within walking distance to the casino and numerous restaurants around. Directly in front of the beach. Lovely rooms and has a well spread breakfast with excellent service.

Well located, well run, clean modern rooms well situated, great breakfasts. Close to the Board Walk complex and a spit and a stride from Barney's tavern on the beach, which is vibey serves great food and has a good selection of Kraft beer.

Stayed a night at this hotel in Port Elizabeth.The hotel is a road away from the beach with eating areas that over look the oceans.rooms are well spaced and bathrooms neat.breakfast is standard.staff is friendly and helpful.

Staying at the City Lodge in Port Elizabeth is great. Friendly service from the moment you walk in. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Although I did not have a sea view I did not mind at all as the ocean is walking distance from the front door! Breakfast is GREAT! The variety is amazing and they cater to everyone' taste! Whether you just have a nibble or eat like a horse, you are sure to find something to your taste! Water restrictions is applied and the fact that the management team does take this into consideration is amazing! It's without a doubt worth the stay!

Whenever I have to visit Port Elizabeth, SA, I stay in the City Lodge Hotel, because it feels like my home from home. All the staff make you feel as their most treasured visitor, many of them have been there for many years and recognise me when I walk in the front door, and no request is too daunting or simple to deal with promptly.

This hotel never disappoints I know what to expect and get it every time I arrived on Woman's day public holiday expecting skeleton staff and a slow check in Well they were slick friendly and in three minutes I was on my way to my room The room was clean, tea and coffee available, a good selection of TV channels (sport&news) Wine by the glass was of s decent quality and reasonably priced I had lunch in their cafe. Good value and well presented. There are any number of restaurants along the beach front to either walk to or Uber. I walked the 300 meters to a local steak house Safe as houses, no beggars looking for a handout. Surfers catching the last rays of sunlight was entertaining I slept well with no noise to disturb my rest. The breakfast buffet is very adequate too This hotel whilst a budget establishment delivers value every time Well done the management

City Lodge as a premier brand to Town Lodge has the worst rooms compared to the Town Lodge next door to it. No sea views yet Town Lodge there are great sea facing rooms. Worst fitness gym - rowing machine broken, AC doesn't work in a gym! It was raining so beach run wasn't possible. Myself and another guest enquired in the morning about WIFI yet at check-in it wasn't properly explained. Reception has a duty to do their work. Never stay in this hotel again.

Hotel offers good prices. Some rooms are in basement so check location of room if you want to be above-ground. Excellent breakfast- location good as close to waterfront. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful!
