1 Cora Terrace, Port Elizabeth is positioned in the historical centre of the city. Built in the 1850's, this backpacking lodge is full of character
Why Cora Terrace? Not often will you have the opportunity to stay in a National Monument! This beautiful Georgian home was built in the 1850ï¿½s 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. Accommodation ranges from private twin and double rooms, family rooms, and dormitories. Bathrooms are communal as no bedrooms are en-suite. We have self-catering facilities suitable for the individual and group. Alternatively, why donï¿½t you rather let us prepare the meals? We offer home cooked meals that can be adapted to your requirements. Delicious breakfasts, lunch and suppers prepared and served on the premises. Please note we do not have a restaurant - these meals are prepared on request only with advance notice.
