Summer Blue Guest House
Ranked #13 of 43 Summerstrand B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I stay at Summer Blue during all my business trips to PE. It is a pleasure to stay at this awesome place. Baubie goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and relax. The rooms are out of this world with very comfortable beds specially the king size ones. The breakfast is awesome and well worth the price. During my last stay Baubie even delivered an umbrella to my room to insure I won't get wet when going out to have supper. I would highly recommend Summer Blue as it rates amongst the best B+B accommodation I have ever been to.

Room Tip: Room number 10 is ideal for a family with a big shower.

we only stayed here one night arriving pretty late and knackered in the evening. After staying at a tipical transit hotel niet the airport in Johanhesburg this hostel was like a palace. Spacious rooms with everything you need. I even had a dip in the swimming pool just in front of our room?
After a very good night sleep their we had a breakfast that could take us through the biggest part of our day. Enough to eat and to choose from and enough to fill up the belly.
Our hostess Baubie made the whole picture complete. Very friendly and helpfull. It was the start of our trip and we had some time to kill that day before picking up a friend that was joining us for the first week and she gave us excellent advice on where to do that.
In short: definitely a place to recommend and for us the ideal start of the holidays.

From the time of arrival Baubie took care of all our needs, giving advice on where to eat-great reference. The rooms ar pleasant, clean and spacious, with everything you need-mini fridge, hairdryer, safe and refreshments. Well situated and possible to walk to the beachfront. Baubie arranged for breakfast trays(it was delicious) to be delivered to our rooms for a very early start for Ironman. Amazingly she was even awake at 5 am to ensure that she could deliver umbrellas for our use as the weather was foul. Pool in pretty garden setting. I would highly recommend Summer Blue as it rates amongst the best B+B accommdation in South Africa and has a most attentive hostess. Thank you Baubie for looking after the Ironman athletes as well as their supporters. Lyn Perry

We stayed here for 2 nights and totally enjoyed it. The location is very quiet and not too far away from the waterfront. Baubie is a great host, she helped us with everything. The breakfast was very delicious, the fruit salad and the omeletts were wonderful. The room was spacious and lovely. Baubie, thank you so much for your hospitality.

The perfect B&B to stay in Port Elizabeth. Immaculately clean, gorgeous furnishings, delicious breakfast! Thank you Baubie for make us feel at home in your beautiful B&B. Coming from Alaska to South Africa we were greeted with such a pleasant , spotlessly clean, refreshing retreat in PE. Very very comfortable bed, mini kitchenette, wifi, great shower, amazing full breakfast . This is definitely the place to stay in PE!!!!

We stayed at Summer Blue for five days during the SA Level 3 Swim Champs and found the hospitality and accomodation to be world class. We really felt like we were at home and did not want to return home. Baubie we will recommend Summer Blue with no doubt to any Business traveler or Family on Holiday. Breakfast was one of the highlights of the day! Love those omeletts.

Room Tip: all Rooms are all awesome
