Stayed for 8 nights at the Beach. Service was absolutely excellent, from the first night to the last. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Ate at the hotel most evenings in the Verandah restaurant which had a lovely atmosphere, including a very good pianist on a couple of evenings. Hotel bar was clearly used by locals in the evenings which we enjoyed. Quality of food was excellent and good value for money, as were the bar prices. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, we would use the hotel again and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others thinking of staying in Port Elizabeth.

I wasn't expecting a luxury hotel experience but was expecting a warm room, comfortable bed and nice shower. I got a comfortable bed but the room was freezing and the shower head was ridiculous. Water sprayed in every direction except down. The entire bathroom floor flooded every time I attempted to shower. I complained about the shower on multiple occasions, and they even sent over a handyman, but it was to no avail. Also, my sea view was of the ships, not the actual water.
That said, I think they would have moved us to another room if the hotel wasn't booked up. The staff were very nice.

The Hotel is well situated close to the beach and the Boardwalk complex.
Reception was very friendly and helpful and organised a superb Safari experience for us.
Very nice grounds around the Hotel.
Complimentary drinks and snacks from 5pm - 7pm was a surprising bonus..

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week trip travelling the Garden Route. The hotel is quite simply stunning. Everything is to an exceptionally high standard, the rooms were large and spacious with a private garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful, I felt nothing was too much or a problem for them. The food in the restaurant was delicious, so much so we ate there both nights. The spa session I had was bliss. And we even took advantage of the private cinema/theatre to watch a movie (while eating our desserts and a bottle of wine). Would definitely stay here again.

We spent 2 nights at the Paxton and enjoyed the location so close to the airport and the shops and restaurants just across the car park.
It was a rainy night when we arrived and picked up our hire car so we were grateful the hotel was so easy to find. The rooms were comfortable but a fridge would have been useful.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and the food was fine although the person on the desk seemed to be encouraging us to go elsewhere. It was pouring with rain so we were quite happy to stay put and enjoy the menu which was fairly limited but quite adequate.

I could not fault this hotel, the room was luxurious overlooking Nelson Mandela Bay, It was like having all my dreams come true. The bed was gigantic . The staff were friendly and attentive at all times , the restaurant was superb with so much choice and everything cooked to perfection. There is nothing to dislike and I had such a good stay here.
