“Very friendly staff. Comfortable room, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and have recommended the place to my friends.. Great value for money.”

Nelson Rode  (Pretoria, South Africa)  –  17 Aug 2015
“Im Nelson from Pretoria. My stay at Hoylake Inn was such a wonderful one that I am looking forward to book for the coming summer vacation. Also I was impressed by Laura’s handling of my stay on Sunday because she could understand my flight back is only in the evening and she allowed me for a late checkout without demanding extra fee. I would also recommend Hoylake Inn to friends and family who are looking at visiting East London.”

Audrey Prince (Avis Rent-a-Car Port Elizabeth, South Africa)  – 15 Aug 2015

“Thank you for the lovely hospitality I totally enjoyed every minute.”
