Guest visit to Port Elizabeth CBD
"The first mission was to find accommodation in Port Elizabeth. I gathered that the new name for the Port Elizabeth area is now Nelson Mandela Bay, but apparently Nelson Mandela Bay hasn't quite taken off yet, and Port Elizabeth accommodation is still the more user-friendly search phrase.
We searched for the self catering accommodation in Port Elizabeth option, but found very little accommodation of interest.
As we were playing golf at Port Elizabeth Golf Club, or also known as The Hill Golf Club, we decided to search through the various nearby suburbs under the Port Elizabeth Bed and Breakfast category.
The Port Elizabeth CBD seemed like a waste of time and offered very little in the way of accommodation or entertainment. This consisted mainly of offices, and was a no-no for a holiday in PE.
The most popular area seemed like Summerstrand.
Bed and Breakfasts in Summerstrand were plentiful and mostly of a very high standard.
The promenade was fantastic and had stacks of great restaurants and of course the much sought after Boardwalk Casino....... we lost a few bucks at the casino, but it was much fun.
The Port Elizabeth Golf Club was closer to Mill Park, and we were very lucky to find a Bed and Breakfast in Mill Park (King George's Guest House) which was a really nice 4-star Bed and Breakfast and just around the corner from the golf club.
We found Port Elizabeth ( or Nelson Mandela Bay ) to be a really nice clean city and all the little suburbs like Summerstrand, Mill Park, Humewood and Walmer offered great Hotels as well as Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the Port Elizabeth area.
We visited Jeffrey's Bay which was only an hour or so away, and loved the little "surfing town" - also worth popping into.
The PE Golf club was in fantastic condition and is a true test of golf.
Unfortunately we were rained out for our visit to Humewood Golf Club.
Options for Bed and Breakfasts in Humewood was also plentiful, and so was Self Catering accommodation in Humewood. Summerstrand accommodation would also have been very convenient for playing golf at Humewood.
All in all, the suburbs of PE were very tidy, much architectural history can be found in some of the very quaint Port Elizabeth Bed and Breakfasts.
Besides visiting one or two dodgy night spots, we found that there was more than enough entertainment on the Port Elizabeth beachfront to make for a very lekker holiday.
Thanks Port Elizabeth - Love your city!

Finding business guest house accommodation in Port Elizabeth
I was looking for last minute overnight accommodation in Port Elizabeth, and noticed that you had very little in the Port Elizabeth CBD, and I can see why - WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT !!
Luckily the suburbs of Port Elizabeth (or Nelson Mandela Bay) are full of bed and breakfast accommodation.
Blue Water Bay and Summerstrand accommodation are in my mind the ones to choose from. I stayed at Hobie Beach Guest House in Summerstrand and loved it
Next time I'll take my whole family and check out the self catering Port Elizabeth options
Thanks Where to Stay for showing great accommodation variations
