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.

I would not want to stay here for 1 week but 1-3 nights would be okay before you fly out from port Elizabeth. Our wifi only works really slow by the reception and not in the room. The mattresses are not together they move apart. The room is small but okay we only have a shower.

Good Day Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. Did you book one of the 3 Star standard rooms? Or a 4 Star Luxury rooms? The standard rooms are smaller than the luxury rooms. Kind Regards

Excellent Room and Location, with Great Food!! We travelled here from Capetown and got in real late, were welcomed by a wonderful staff. The restaurant was still opened and the food was so good we went back for breakfast.

First of all, this is a poor 3* hotel, not even pretending to be close to 4*. Outdated rooms, poor service (not to SA standards), miserable breakfast and much more miserable dinner (some of us had stomach pain after it), nothing interesting in vicinity.

The Kelway was a great place for us to stay and good location for the beach and access to the university only 15 mins drive away. The staff where freindly and helpful throughout our stay and whilst we only had breakfast it was perfect for us. The room good size too.

This hotel is ok for a one night stop over. Near the airport, no frills and a reasonably good breakfast. Situated close to the marine drive. There are nice views over the bay. Nothing else to recommend.
