My mother and I went to Port Elizabeth for a short vacation a few weeks ago and we stayed at Carslogie House as it was referred to us by some friends. When we arrived I immediately knew I would love it there. Once we had seen our rooms everything was confirmed. We had chosen a great place for the weekend.
Our room was very spacious and the linens were so smooth, very comfortable. There have flat screen TV
and wifi which was great as the one day during our holiday it rained so we just relaxed indoors and caught up on some emails and photo editing. Our breakfast on the first morning was delicious and I would definitely recommend having the first meal of the day there every morning. It was the perfect way to start our day.
The guest house has a beautiful garden, and a large salt water swimming pool, where guests can laze around and enjoy the sun. All the rooms are Individually decorated and feature antique décor and a flat-screen TV.
The hotel is located 500 meters away from Summerstrand beach which is the most exciting part of any visit to PE. Humewood Golf Club and Boardwalk Casino are both a 5-minute drive away, so if you love sports, you can visit the golf course and play a round for a very reasonable amount. If thats not for you, then try out the Casino down the road. Our rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and we always returned to an excellently turned down bedroom.
All in all it was a great experience staying there.
Being a five star B&B, the following facilities are standard in all the rooms:
During August of each year, all of our family will look for guest houses that are near the beach. This year we stayed at Summer Blue Guest House in a private room. The bedrooms were very comfortable and they all provided us with exactly what we needed. The staff were courteous and friendly, very helpful and neat. The hotel was very relaxing as it is situated in the quiet, up-market beachfront suburb of Summer strand in Port Elizabeth along with other guest houses, bed & breakfasts and self-catering establishments. It really felt like a home away from home You can feel safe as they have a secure off street parking area and the house feels very secure. We will definitely return for another stay next time we are in Port Elizabeth and will choose a room with a view of the ocean.
It was wonderful to wake up to the sea breeze and the smell of the ocean wafting in your window. Summer Blue’s food is delicious, well cooked and served beautifully. The central position of the hotel meant all the attractions of PE we were just a short stroll away and it’s fortunate that the weather was perfect and beautiful and the sun shone all weekend while we were there.
It takes less than 2 hours to drive to Addo Elephant Park, Grahamstown, Port Alfred and the numerous other Game Parks in the area. We enjoyed great views and had a great conversation with the other guests who were staying there. It was lovely to relax, have a drink and watch the beauty of the place as the day slowly rolled on. We really loved all the friendly staff and their well-equipped spacious dining room, the fast service of the hot breakfast in the morning was especially woderful. We would definitely stay here again.
