    Whatever the reason

    for your stay

    We at Margate Place Guesthouse will make your stay a memorable one.

    Margate Place’s location in the seaside Summerstrand suburb is simply ideal. Situated 160m from the gorgeous Port Elizabeth beachfront, we are protected from main road traffic, yet still just a short walk from paradise.

    Stretching your legs slightly further could lead you to any one of the entertainment attractions that Summerstrand has to offer: All within walking distance are The Boardwalk, which boasts a casino, movie theatre, a number of beachfront restaurants, which often host live music, and a shopping centre for your more practical needs.

    Our more energetic guests enjoy running, cycling and swimming along our Ironman approved beachfront. In fact, you might well find yourself alongside one of our local pros during your morning run, but no pressure.

    For the adventure enthusiasts, we’ll take you out longboarding depending on which way the famous PE wind is blowing. There is a lovely beachwalk 3 minutes away. And if you’d rather swing through 9 holes than hang 10 toes, then the Humewood Links golf course is just up the road.

    While we can’t control the wind, we do have our say in upholding PE’s other famous quality: that of friendliness. Our staff are of the highest calibre and so is our accommodation. Your comfort and privacy are our priority.
