We (2 adults, 2 children) rolled into Amani straight from the Port Elizabeth Airport (only a 3 minute drive away). Carl, the manager, was calm and attentive and helped us to get oriented. The grounds were beautifully gardened and the smell of honeysuckle was in the air. The room was clean and appointed with all that we needed (exactly as...

We thank you for your visit to Amani Guest Lodge. As we only have one family room to accommodate travellers like yourselves that are on route and have not to date had the problem of it being noisy. We also primarily supply accommodation for the corporate traveller that arrives late and leaves early for his/her business appointments.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Amani Guest Lodge, tucked away within the tree-lined suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, is a welcoming retreat for those seeking the best of city living, combined with the warmth and comfort of a true African lodge. "Amani" is a Swahili word that means 'place of peace,' carefully chosen to represent the sheer luxury and relaxation of this sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city living. The African cultures are known for their warmth and hospitality. Amani Guest Lodge is dedicated to maintaining this important theme, treating each guest to a unique, indulgent experience during their time in the Friendly City, as Port Elizabeth is affectionately known. Our sophisticated decor, attention to detail and graceful gardens all play their part in ensuring that our guests are pampered and relaxed at Amani Guest Lodge. In addition, Walmer is centrally located. Amani Guest Lodge is, therefore, within a few minutes' drive of the airport, major shopping centres, doctors, hospitals and even the beautiful beaches for which the Eastern Cape is known and loved. *** New ownership since 25th February 2016 *** ... more   less
