      Prime location. Directly across the beautiful beaches, Shark Rock Pier and adjacent to Boardwalk Casino/Hotel/centre. Excellent service from attentive staff. Decent breakfast thanks to staff who tried to cater to our vegetarian requirements. Rooms dated & not what I’d expected. Overall a good stay.

      I always stay at the Beach Hotel as it’s one of the few hotels that still has that homely feel about it. Right on the Beach with the best view of Hobie Beach and the pier, and close to all amenities, excellent service with great staff

      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

      This was a disappointment to us. And we had anticipated more.The stained glass in the public spaces is lovely but the room was small and tired - looking and there was a faint smell of mould in it (which might be due to the damp air off the coast ). The room was certainly cleaned but the psint work on the bathroom door obviously needs a regular cleaning or repainting.... so the hotel would not get a good rating from us.

      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.

      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.
