About First Avenue Guesthouse

First Avenue Guesthouse is a well established 4-Star guest house situated in a quiet cul-de-sac opposite Hobie Beach in the popular beachfront suburb of Summerstrand in Port Elizabeth. The original character-filled homestead dates back to the early 1900s, with gleaming Oregon pine floors and high ceilings.

Each well-appointed room opens onto the garden and pool area and features its own entrance, kitchenette, DStv channels, telephone, and wireless Internet connection. A self-catering beachfront apartment is also available for short or long term rental. In addition, the guest house offers conference facilities fully equipped with TV and projector.

I booked a B & B but was placed in a flat up 4 flights of stairs roughly a block away from the advertised location. No aircon, no mini bar a TV that did not work properly and was checked in by a half-drunk guy that gave me the wrong keys. Wifi that kept dropping signal.
