        Its a simple well located hotel, comfortable and clean

        My curtains were eaten by rats or whatever, had holes in, brought it to the attention of reception and they were replaced by housekeeping .... towels are old and thin and not new and fluffy

        hotel is situated very close to all tourist attractions and amenities. rates are very good! and safe parking for vehicles available.

        booked 1 room for 2 people - didnt realize we would be getting 2 single beds. experienced bit of confusion at breakfast the next morning - not sure about booking status

        It was covenient for the airport and sea front and was ideal for a one night stay before flying home. Secure car parking was good with no extra charge.

        We had booked a twin room with sea view. However, on arrival we were given a very small room with no outlook at all. When querying this they did transfer us to a sea view room straightaway as fortunately the hotel was not busy. Bar opening hours were very limited 5 - 9 p.m. No one to help with luggage.

        Receptionist on arrival friendly and helpful. All our details were correct. Security of 'on site' parking appreciated.

        A comfortable chair in the room would of been appreciated. Rooibos not available for our room when requested. A thermos supplied, for what reason? The first B&B we've been to, where there was not a hair-dryer in the room. The same menu for breakfast, two varieties of sausage, eggs bacon and tomato relish.

        It is absolutely value for money for single travelers. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was well layd out and very enjoyable. Good location.

        When requesting a drink from the bar I was told it was closed. Advert said wifi available which as was the case with me was considered to be included. It did not specify (available but charged).

        The friendly staff, very affordable rates and proximity to shopping centres, the beach and conference venues made our stay so enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to others!

        A home away from home.!! From the moment I stepped into reception I was greeted with friendliness and very helpfull staff. I often travel and this was one of my most pleasant stays of all times. The rooms are neat, tidy, spacious, well furnished with aircon, tea/coffee facilities, satalite tv., conference facilities, swimmingpool and secure parking on the premises with a remote gate, which gave me peace of mind. There are even self catering suites with 2 bedrooms. Ideal for a family! There are broshures of activities in and around PE and the staff are more than willing to help direct and arrange these activities. There is a bar for a sundowner so I stepped onto a balcony to watch the ocean. The location is perfect. Walking distance from the beach. And on a weekend there is a fleamarket with many stalls along the beachfront. Restaurants are +-2km away for a nice walk or a quick drive. The Boardwalk Casino complex is also very close by with lots of activities (expecially for children!) shopping, movie theatres, restaurants etc. After a very peaceful night's rest they serve a lovely breakfast. Bishops Inn is a definate must for a lovely stay and the rate is more than reasonable. For the price I paid I cannot believe the value I received. Don't think twice about this lovely establishment, give Bishops Inn a try and you'll definately be back in the future!!!

        We were allowed check in before check in time.People were very efficient and friendly.The room was very clean and spacious.Enough safe parking for the car.

        Note said that the bar will be open from 5.00pm till 9.00pm.During the 2 day stay this did not happen.

        It's location

        No fridge in the room. Cleaning of rooms sometimes good, sometimes they forgot to replace items such as towels, pillow cases and toiletries.

        The room was standard (bed, desk, chair, bathroom) - nice and clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Situated two streets back from the main road, it was quiet.

        I got a very good room for a reasonable price. The location suited me and the stay was enjoable.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The room was attractive, spacious, airy and light and I did not feel cooped in like one sometimes does in a hotel room. I also enjoyed the little kitchen facility so that light meals and refreshments could be prepared as and when I wished. I was also not hounded by housekeeping staff as they seemed discreet and not in my way. It was nice to be able to come and go about my business without an overwhelming hotel administartion presence. The staff were there when I needed them but not indiscreet.

      • Group of friends

        Spacious room with nice view of harbour. Easy access from parking. Very quiet neighborhood.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        I could check in at whatever time suited me. it was very centrally located. The beds were comfortable and the shower and bathroom were a good size. it was quiet.

        I do not like sheets and blankets - old fashioned and uncomfortable, duvets are much better. The shower floor was very slippery, apart from that the shower was perfect! i did not like the fact that there was not a child's price for the breakfast - I paid R60 for a continental breakfast and my child ate a bowl of crispies and 2 slices of toast!
