Lichfield, United Kingdom
Reviewed 9 March 2016 via mobile

Very pleasant public areas and bars. Light and airy with efficient service. But standard room reminded us of a Travelodge. Dark, overlooked courtyard, quite small. Not 4 star. Silly wifi system...separate log in for each gadget frustrating. Only for one night before flying home.

If you want to enjoy an old fashion buffet lunch reminding you of childhood Sunday lunch with your parents then this is the place to go. Variety of seafood and roasts. Veggie choice however limited but delicious deserts make up for it. Reasonably priced.

We spent one night in the Beach Hotel booked by our travel agent. Our reception on arrival was decidedly unfriendly, the least welcoming we experienced in the six hotels in which we stayed.

This was our final stop after a wonderful two weeks' honeymoon. It was really just a stopover before flying from PE airport early in the morning, so we weren't expecting great luxury. The location is good - just across the (busy) road from the beach, and close to the Boardwalk, with its shops, restaurants and rides (we enjoyed 'Adventure golf'!)....

We stayed for 3 weeks in Jan/Feb 2016. This is a very comfortable and compact Art Deco seaside hotel with around 60 rooms - location 5 kms to city centre but this is a better holiday location - for anybody who appreciates architecture this place is a gem with a beautiful wood beamed dining room with leaded light clad skylight...

We ate there on Valentine's Day. We left our reservations a little too late as we just arrived in Town and completely forgot what day it was!

We used this hotel as a one night stop off before being collected at the airport for a visit to Pumba Game Reserve. It was very clean, efficient and spacious.

My review is only based on the breakfast buffet. Having grown up in Port Elizabeth, one of my childhood memories were of people raving about the food at the Beach Hotel.
