We arrived for our first ever night in SA, tired from a long flight and unsure of our surroundings, Dempsey's was the perfect haven - Kathy and Jack are so welcoming and helpful. They told us where we could go for food, and gave us maps and advice on the area. The rooms and gardens are beautiful and very secure....

We needed somewhere to stay for two nights during a brief visit to P.E and Dempseys was perfect for our needs. The owners are friendly and helpful, wanting to ensure we had a comfortable stay. Will definitely consider this self catering accommodation again for our next trip to Port Elizabeth.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our aim is to provide a peaceful and comfortable stay for all travellers. We live on-site at our self catering guest house which is nestled in the quiet suburb of Walmer, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. We opened the doors to our guest house in 2006 and have hosted guests from all over the world. We are very close to all amenities needed for the business or leisure traveller. An array of restaurants, pubs, bakeries and shopping centres are between 500 metres and 5 kms from us at Dempsey's. The closest beach is 7 kms away, the airport is under 3 kms from us and the Nelson Mandela Stadium is 5 kms from us. We offer five self-catering en-suite rooms with on-site parking close to the rooms. Each en-suite room has its own kitchenette and small dining area. We are a popular choice of accommodation for families as we have two family rooms each sleeping 4 people. One of these rooms is wheelchair accessible. The other rooms consist of single and double beds. At Dempsey's Guest House we are environmentally conscious, conserving energy by using a heat pump to heat all water on the property. We use as many energy-saving light bulbs as possible. All our showers are fitted with water-saving shower roses. We harvest rain water for use in our laundry; we plan on having more rain tanks for harvesting of rain water to our guest rooms. We recycle paper, plastic, tins and glass. Our garden is completely natural, we don’t apply fertilizers or pesticides of any kind. We trust that your stay with us will be calm, comfortable and memorable. Yours in service.
