No.5 By Mantis
No 5 Boutique Art Hotel is undoubtedly one of the finest (if not the finest) place to stay in Port Elizabeth. Located in the upmarket seaside suburb of Summerstrand, this small and exclusive hotel has an Art Deco façade, and an eclectic interior filled with carefully chosen furniture and bold colour schemes. The overall effect is wonderfully glamorous and lives up to the hotel’s invitation to “experience the exceptional”!
This is a small hotel with just 10 exquisite suites, so look forward to personal service and painstaking attention to detail. Relax alongside the rim-flow swimming pool, sip French Champagne in the comfortable lounge, enjoy a private screening at the on-site cinema or pick from the wide range of treatments at the top-floor spa. If you haveenergy to burn visit the gym for a workout with a sea view or perhaps the perfect end to your day is rather a smooth single malt whisky and Cuban cigar at the Salon Privè.
When it comes time for dinner we’d highly recommend staying in and trying The Jazz Room. A small but high-quality menu includes dishes such as poached Norwegian salmon and tender lamb shank, while the wine list features a variety or rare local and imported wines. If you’re exhausted from travelling you can request in-room dining, and for special functions, there’s the Provencal-style wine cellar.
No 5 Boutique Art Hotel lies within an easy walking distance of the beach and a convenient 10-minute drive from Port Elizabeth Airport.
