Hi Margate Place not only has excellent and super friendly staff but the best location in Summerstrand. If you are planning a trip to Port Elizabeth I would recommend Margate Place especially if you enjoy walking along the beach. This is where I feel at home. John

Tastefully decorated room, comfortable bed, quiet street and a walk away from the beach and other amenities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Delicious buffet breakfast. We could not ask for anything more.

This has been our third stay at Margate Place and once again we're very happy customers. The place was spacious and well maintained. Even the small details are seen to...the scented bag in the clothes cupboard, the variety of plug adapters available, etc. And I must add that Trevor's home baked health muffins are delish! We'll definitely go back when...

Our extended family - 9 people - spent three nights at Margate Place early November 2016. The rooms were spacious and had everything you needed.
