We had a lovely time at the Humewood. The rooms are spacious and the chocolates on the pillow a real treat after a long day out. I would recommend the morning breakfast. The breakfast menu was always different and delicious. We will definitely be back next year:)

We visited your pub to watch the football last night. The barman was so astonishingly rude that we were gobsmacked. When asked whether the football would be screened, we received nothing but a look of contempt. He literally spoke no words, only snorts and grunts. We stood there for about 2 confused minutes, whilst he went about other tasks. He...

I have this problem with 5 star establishment because most aren't and should not be classified as such because they do not live up to the standards required. With 2 and 3 star establishment the rules are much simpler because you see what you get. The Humewood is a very clean, honest, well looked after, well run middle of the...

Great place to stop over. Was surprise that they had room for us on the spur of the moment. Did not make any reservation as we were 1 day ahead of time for our other accommodation booked in Port Elizabeth. They were happy to accommodate us for the night. Rooms were large as we had a family unit. Food was...

We love staying at the Humewood. Rooms are comfortable (sea view) The breakfasts are very good and we loved the evening carvery. Nothing fancy but good food and very delicious desserts. Being so close to the sea the walk is wonderful. Just a lovely hotel with very pleasant staff. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately this is not a good review as the breakfast was terrible. Open and uncovered yoghurt , tinned fruit and overcooked eggs sums it up. The hotel is neglected and although looks okay really needs a good going over and clean up. The main dining area is nice but without a good manager and chef it is a poor mans...

Had to spend a night in PE for a business trip. Location is a nicely close to the sea-side, bars and restaurants. The rooms are very clean, smart and well kitted. The staffs are friendly. The breakfast was good too :). All the boxes are ticked! For the price, I am well satisfied.

With it's wonderful location on the beachfront, the Humewood Hotel offers affordable, clean and comfortable accommodation. A room with a balcony is the best! The breakfast is delicious and there is a great selection to choose from. Staff are friendly and efficient.

Have been to this hotel a few times over the past years. We have always found the rooms to be clean fresh and the beds to be comfortable. We have always had a wonderful experience staying here. The food has also been of a high standard and great value for money
