Summer Blue Guest House
Ranked #13 of 43 Summerstrand B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We spent a night at Summer Blue on 10 April and were most impressed. If only all guest houses were as wonderful! The owners, Baubie and Graham, were friendly, gracious and helpful in all respects - and the staff equally so. Our bedroom was spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable in every way. There were thoughtful touches in the bathroom and attention to detail was evident wherever one looked. We looked over a beautifully kept garden and pool.

The breakfast the next morning was outstanding! Made me remember my mom's unbeatable omelets! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you!

Our son recently competed in the Port Elizabeth Iron Man and as grandparents we were invited along as support team to help look after the children. When looking for somewhere to stay he noted that Summer Blue was very highly rated and he was fortunately able to book two rooms there. It was the perfect choice. Our hostess Baubie took enormous trouble before our arrival to sort out the correct rooms and equipment for us and made us all feel welcome straight away. Our rooms were perfectly situated with doors leading out on to the swimming pool and gardens where there are comfortable tables and chairs. The rooms are very well appointed with comfortable beds and high quality bed linen and equipped with fridges, microwaves toaster etc. These facilities made catering for children very easy. Everything is beautifully maintained by a lovely cheerful team for whom nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts were a treat and the home-made bubble and squeak is not to be missed or the traditional pork sausages made locally by the Two Fat Butchers ! On the early morning of the competition we were thoughtfully provided with delicious packed breakfasts. In the evening we were able to sit by the pool and eat our supper. Our grandson particularly enjoyed playing with Mattie the beautiful cat. All in all – the perfect place to stay.

Although it was a busy weekend Baubie and her husband Graham were extremely helpful to all the competitors with their local knowledge and expertise. Baubie really does “go the extra mile” When we got lost driving from the airport she literally got into her car and came to meet us and escort us to the house !

Thankyou so much for making our stay in Port Elizabeth one of the highlights of our South African holiday.

Excellent place and host, fantastic staff, beutiful gardens, safe and quiet. If it was possible, we would give 6 stars. So many thanks to the host Baubie, her husbond Graham, her right hand Theresa and her staff to make our 6 days stay in PE very succesful.
Baubie was always ready for helping, whatever the problem was small or big. Thank you for borrowing the garage for our bikes.
We had a wonderful stay at Summer Blue, the rooms are lovely and big with a small kitchen, sofa and the tv had european programs.
The breakfast was perfect, and every day we were asked what we wanted to eat the following morning. We loved your potato-speciality!
We have only positive words and memories for our stay and will recommend Summer Blue at any time.
Graham took Jakob to the swim course and spent time with him. Fantastic.

We usually stay at hotels when travelling, but this time we thought we'd try a B&B. The rooms were crisp and clean, the welcome was warm and friendly and the surroundings beautifully maintained! We will definitely go back next time we're in PE! Thanks to the wonderful staff, especially Baubie and Theresa, we had a great stay!!

My family having been coming to PE for years, and they always choose to stay at Summer Blue. This was my first trip to SA and I'm happy we stuck with tradition and stayed at Summer Blue again. The location is perfect, walking distance from the main shops and close to the main events PE has to offer. The area of SB is safe and you feel secure both night and day on the premises. The grounds consist of two beautiful gardens. One with a pool and the other with a sweet set of table and chairs for relaxing in the sunshine - idyllic holiday paradise. The staff are great, very friendly and chatty and, in my opinion, go above and beyond to take care of you - I had forgotten to hang up some washing I had left to soak, when I came back from a day trip the housekeeper had already hung it up to dry for me! Amazing service! The staff also recommended a couple of day trips for us, which meant we saw the big 5! Once in a lifetime experiences just minutes from the front door of SB! The breakfasts are great portions and fill you up for the day. The rooms are spotlessly clean with a microwave, toaster and kettle which I haven't seen in many other places. If you're staying in PE, make sure to stay at Summer Blue, I can't recommend it any higher!!!
