About Cora Terrace

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. George’s botanical gardens. It is about 5 minute quick drive to the beach. For the sporting enthusiast, it is within walking distance to St. George’s 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 don’t you rather let us prepare the meals? On request we offer home cooked meals that can be adapted to your requirements.

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.

It was very very nice to be at Cora Terrace. Accommodation good but sharing of the kitchen should be reviewed.

A very pleasant experience. The owners were very welcoming and we felt right at home. They informed us about the sightseeing in PE. They were accommodating if we required anything.
