Port Elizabeth's Summerstrand Hotel
Nestled on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean with the Humewood Links Golf Course at it’s back, the Summerstrand Hotel is one of Nelson Mandela Bay’s premier hotels. The superb location affords guests views of the beach, the golf course, and of the hotel’s private, carefully landscaped gardens. This is the place to go if you’re planning to enjoy plenty of water sport activities during your stay in Port Elizabeth.
The Summerstrand Hotel in Port Elizabeth recently underwent a massive refurbishment to raise standards and help make it one of the leading hotels in the region. The upgrading focused on guest bathrooms, which were made larger, and the general look of the property. The 175 rooms are now wonderfully spacious and feature large, comfortable bathrooms with a separate bath and shower or a combination bath/shower. Room categories include Suites, King Leisure Rooms and Twin Rooms and there are smoking and non-smoking options. The rooms have air conditioning, tea/coffee making facilities, satellite TV, a hairdryer, walk-on balconies, 24-hour reception, room service and a laundry service.
The hotel also has great banquet and function capabilities with seven venues available. This includes three meeting rooms – two of which can be combined for a larger space – a main conference room with the capacity to host 240 people, the Lillies room (100), the Pool Lounge (80) and the smaller and more intimate Captains Cabin (10). The rooms come with a qualified and dedicated conference manager who will do everything possible to ensure that your event is a success. There is also a dedicated business center for those who need to conduct business during their time here. For dining, guests can visit the Palm Grill restaurant, the Boodles Bar or the Pool Lounge – each of which has its own special ambience and menu.
Of course there are also tons of sporting and relaxation opportunities to enjoy. Guests can unwind in the landscaped garden, leave your child in the secure playground facilities or enjoy a swim in the refreshing pool. You can try your hand at the neighboring golf course or head to the beach for diving, swimming, walking, sun bathing, dining, jet skiing or deep sea fishing. The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment complex is nearby with its casino, video arcade, outdoor entertainment, restaurants and shops. Fitness fanatics can easily gain access to the nearby Virgin Active gym. So book your stay at the Summerstrand Hotel today and make the most of this great hotel.
