Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth is situated on the steep slopes above “Algoa Bay” on the coast of the Eastern Cape. PE as it is commonly called is a friendly town with parks and beaches. The city centre has a large number of historical buildings. The luxury and privacy of a boutique hotel with the personal touch of a guest house best summarizes this establishment. Situated only a block away from Port Elizabeth’s premier beachfront and in the up market suburb of Summerstrand, Cape Flame is enviably situated in close proximity to our city’s central business district, airport, major tourist attractions, restaurants, and cinemas.

Port Elizabeth’s rich cultural heritage guarantees history lovers a unique insight into the Eastern Cape’s and the Metro’s diverse and remarkable past. Port Elizabeth has been an important port and harbour on the South Africa east coast ever since the first British settlers began arriving from 1820.

 

Port Elizabeth was the first city in SA to establish a fully integrated, democratic local authority and has long been a leader in the political transformation of the country. Presently, Port Elizabeth is fondly referred to as “Ibhayi” by Xhosa speakers, “Die Baai” by Afrikaners and “The Bay” by English speakers.
