We just needed an over night stay and this was a good place for this. The accomadation, breakfast and staff were all very good. It was a short drive from the airport, too. It was moderately priced and did all we wanted it to.

When I booked the hotel I saw all the nice pictures and even decided to book a "luxury" room with Sea view as we are staying for 7 nights. The hotel looks lovely from the outside and also the reception and restaurant are spacious. However when we were taken to our room I was somewhat disappointed. It really is just...

This is not my first stay. Always had excellent, friendly and efficient service from the reception to restaurant. It is a pleasure to stay here as the rooms are always very clean and the food is excellent. If you are not eating in, there are restaurants nearby. The rooms are quiet which is always important to me. Free safe parking.

South African Freelance Association held their meeting on the 13th August 2016 hosted by The Kelway Hotel in Port Elizabeth. What a pleasure it was to have a conference room where everything worked. Tea, coffee and mineral water all in place and excellent unobtrusive service in the background. Well worth a visit.

We (Safrea EC) recently held a meeting in The Kelway Hotel's boardroom. Their attention to detail was first class; right down to complimentary pens and pads. Refreshments and catering was the clincher! Best of all - everything works! The A/V equipment was easy to use, the facility is quiet, well illuminated, and conducive to holding successful meetings. Thank you, Kelway...

This hotel is fine for a night (possibly two) if you literally just need somewhere to sleep before/after a garden route tour/flight. There is nothing particularly wrong with it, and the sea is only a few minutes walk, but equally there is nothing that would make you rave about it to a friend to go and stay there. Any more...

We stayed at the Kelway for one night as we had an early flight. This was booked through Trailfinders and so we expected the standard to be on a par with the rest of our trip but sadly not. The hotel is sideways on to the beachfront and so our sea facing room actually mainly overlooked the car park with...

Booked accommodation for a weekend. The hotel is well maintained. The superior room we had needs a bit of renovation. Door to the balcony is wobbly and couldn't close properly. Furniture is old and depriciated. Cupbord door knobs are falling when pulled. The restaurant and the bar are good. Staff is friendly. Don't expect silence and peaceful sleep if there...

Thank you so much for the lovely review! Coffee/tea/water is part of our conference packages, so all I can think is that the organizer excluded this from their side. Please feel free to email me on gm@thekelway.co.za and I will gladly check on this and give you feedback. Have a lovely day :-)

This wooden log type hotel does offer excellent accommodation. The area around the hotel is also safe to go for a walk and quite close to the beach. There is a lovely bar and the food inn the restaurant is very good.
