I love staying here when on a business trip. Beautiful views of the sea, rooms are kept really well, staff always eager to help. Standard breakfast, very close to other restaurants and the casino, and to me very good value for money.

The City Lodge was heaving, but the Courtyard looked quieter. They threw in free breakfast as I arrived late at night, and were welcoming and friendly. Room was spacious and sea-facing - very good value for money.

Stayed Sun to Thurs in September 2016. Great reception area with sea views and pool outside. Complimentary bar and nibbles from 5-7pm. Rooms spacious with balcony. Much better than the City Lodge sister hotel next door.

We chose this location because it is close to the airport. (It is a 15 minute drive.) We only had one night here, but it is definitely a nice place to stay. Nono, the manager, took our booking ten months ago and was there to greet us. She, also, helped us with reservations for dinner that night. (The restaurant was...

I stayed at the Courtyard for 2 nights. Was absolutely lovely. I love the hotel, rooms and staff. When travelling for business at extended periods of time, it's great to stay at a place with kitchen facilities, ironing facilities, gym with a view of the sea, doors that open onto a balcony instead of purely air conditioned rooms. Thank you...

Whenever I visit Pe I stay at the courtyard, their prices are good, the staff friendly and you can park your car right outside your room, if you stay on reception level. It's like a "motel". It's close to the casino and beachfront restaurants. I recommend the queen room suite as you have a separate lounge area and kitchenette for...

Lovely open hotel yard, spacious and comfortable. All amenities one would need with a pleasant surprise to have a equipped kitchenette, tucked inside a wardrobe cupboard. Well designed!
