good hotel in a good location

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.

Had a 6:10 flight out the next morning so close to the airport. Nice modern business hotel but couldn't use the pool because its too close to the lobby and there was a business function so not appropriate to swim. Close to restaurants and shopping.

Cons: Shower asap
Location: Beach, boardwalk. Eat
Nice hotel, issues with the shower head n temperatures as they sprinkle all over. Also the heater in the room takes a while to warm up. Overall would book again, comfortable and cheap.

Underwhelming unfortunately

Cons: Food and bar area
Location: Questionable
Our dinner eaten in the bar area was presented in room service style and the chicken curry seemed to be only chicken in Keens curry powder. Very disappointing. The bar music was a single track on repeat that did not encourage people to stay, relax or create a nice atmosphere. At the end of the Port Elizabeth Beach Road strip it did not have a sense of safety or convenience.

Pros: Gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis aber wenig "touristisch"
Location: Nahe am Flughafen PE.
