Stayed 1 night in May 2010

A great way to end the day”

Situated a stone's throw away from the airport and nestled on a hilltop with a view, Kelway is not only functional for the Garden Route passerby but comfy and clean for any traveler. The accommodations were warm and staff hospitable and we felt welcome the moment we arrived.
The decor of the bathroom was rather sterile and lacking in ambiance compared to the other areas of the hotel. The staff was also out of WiFi vouchers that accommodated our needs so while not a big deal, it was a detail missed.

Kelway Hotel is the perfect way to end a day's drive through the Garden Route before flying out of Port Elizabeth. Lodge-y in feel with the warmth of hospitable staff and well appointed meals, you get the feeling of safety and being tucked away at a retreat. Nestled at the top of a hill overlooking the Port, Kelway Hotel will make you feel instantly at home and is geographically desirable with its location 10 minutes from the airport.

A very short, pleasant, but memorable stay. ”

We slept over for jyst 1 night, but the proffessional manner with which we were welcomed surpassed normal custoner service. We arrived very early, through reception ladies, Zoleka and her colleague, the hotel accomodated us to freshen up and keep our luggage safely. The service focuses on putting the customer at the centre of all activities. The beds were very comfortable with an amazing view and breakfast was a luxury considering the reasonable price we paid. We will definately be making our way back to Kelway soon. A memorable service and stay that makes a customer feel at home while enjoying the luxury of a hotel.

Everything about the hotel was excellant, lovely room, nice bar and restuarant and a nice pool to cool down in after a hot day.
I really could not find any weaknesses but my stay was only for 1 night.

The Location is very good and the room that I had was very spacious with a queen size bed and nicely done out. The rate included breakfast which was excellent and what a lovely view you have of the sea if you dicide to sit on the balcony which I did. Staff very pleasant and helpfull. Just in minutes walking distance to the various beaches and the entertainment centre and Casino. I would definetely recommend this hotel as it is excellent value for money.

Nice room but room for improvement”

The room was of satisfactory standard and cleanliness but there was some niggling shortcomings: there was no bin for litter in the room; the air extractor outside the room on the balcony was off its hinges and stand; the balcony and chairs and table need to be dusted daily. Where there was supposed to be a refrigerator there was none; the fridge compartment was empty. Since my arrival, there were pigeon droppings and dust on wood rails of the balcony. I was greatly annoyed by the continuous problem with the card key which I had to go and re-set thrice and mind you there is no lift! Look at this problems and you will have a great place of first choice.
