One of the older buildings in the Central area with the atmospheric charm of rich, warm, gleaming wood floors, windows and doors.
NEXT DOOR GUEST LODGE is set in the heart of the old historical heart of Port Elizabeth and right on the Donkin Heritage Walking Trail. Here you can walk amongst the many old buildings of yesteryear marveling at the fine architecture and history of the time . Or you can pull on your takkies( cross trainers) and trap (stomp) on down to nearby coffee shops, traditional African restaurants, pubs, banks, 24 hour grocery shops, antique shops, art museums and galleries, the local swimming pool, horticultural gardens, nightspots or jazz clubs, and the beach is only 10 minutes away by car. No Car? Then you can walk to the beach and on the way visit some of the older buildings, stop at the Arts and Curio centre, Wezandla, for a coffee, then onto the South End Museum, with it's story of the forced evictions, and eventually reach the beachfront.
The bottom garden and most of the rooms overlook a green belt and guinea fowl, other birds and rock hyrax (dassies) visit regularly. It is a great place to chill, have breakfast on the patio, grab a beer from their self service refreshment bar and have a braai with your new friends. They offer breakfast at the nearby codfee shop and are into recycling. Whether it's a quiet stay you need, having fun at the boat bar with lucky legs by your side or getting into rip roaring, thumping nightlife close by, then this “IS” it.
