Specialising in dormitory accommodation for groups, backpackers, families and contractors.

1 Cora Terrace Guest Lodge, Port Elizabeth, is positioned in the historical centre of the city. Built in the 1850's, it is full of character - high ceilings, oregon wooden floors and old fireplaces.
Look no further if you are planning a trip for your school educational, sports team, or church congregation! We offer affordable dormitory accommodation for up to 70 people. Please see pictures of our facilities at the bottom of this page.

We have self catering facilities with the exclusive use of a kitchen with equipment suitable for catering for large groups.

Why Cora Terrace? Not often will you have the opportunity to stay in a National Monument! This beautiful Georgian home was built in the 1850’s to house soldiers guarding the port of Port Elizabeth. Situated in picturesque surroundings, you can walk to the Old Fort, the Donkin Memorial and St. Georges botanical gardens. It is about 5 minute quick drive to the beach. For the sporting enthusiast, it is within walking distance to St. Georges cricket stadium, and about a 10 minute drive to the new Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

A deposit is required to secure bookings and balance is payable on arrival. A breakage deposit is required for groups. Quotes are subject to availability when confirming.

Do you want guidance on activities when in Port Elizabeth? Once your booking is confirmed, we will help you design activities to make your trip to Port Elizabeth exciting and memorable. This is at no additional cost, although you would need to pay relevant entrance fees where required. Should you wish to have guided tours, we will also put you in contact with local, registered specialists.

Remember to book early in advance as we do get busy during school terms and during events. We regret that due to the stairs, physically disabled guests cannot be accommodated.
