A Good place to Stay in Hunmewood, Port Elizabeth
This property is only a three minute walk to the beach and close to Bayworld and the main points of interest in Humewood. The breakfast was excellent and the room was fine, although a little worse for wear. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good value hotel
Close to airport. Check in quick. Went to room up stairs and was given a double bedded room despite specifying twin beds required. The beds were split into two and new bedding put on whilst we waited - not good after a journey of 6 and a half hours. We paid for dinner there - beautiful fish though chips not quite cooked, and prices reasonable. Breakfast very nice too. Toiletries included shampoo and conditioner, lovely. The next morning we went for a walk by the sea, slope down to the sea front, and came back to have lunch - again very nice. Wifi worked fine in our room. Was very quiet when we were there. Staff all very helpful.
