The Blue Lotus Guest House

Reviewed April 29, 2014

The overall facility was very well maintained, immaculately clean, super comfortable accommodations and the staff was above and beyond our expectations. Cynthia, the owner, and her daugher, Stacey, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I would recommend the Abalone Place Guest House to everyone that will be traveling to PE. My overall rating on this property is above excellent on all aspects. Our stay was AMAZING!

You could not get a better location either. The city of Port Elizabeth boasts features such as the Boardwalk Casino, Entertainment Complex, Resturants, Running/Walking Paths and Hobie Beach which is all in walking distance of the Abalone Place Guest House. One of the area's greatest treasures are the clean beaches and warm water, making it an ideal water sport destination.

Room Tip: All the rooms were immaculately clean, super comfortable accomodations and tastefully decorated. Ou...

we had a fantastic weekend in PE, we really enjoyed staying at Abalone Place - Cynthia made us feel very welcome and we had a later than usual breakfast becuase we were taking part in one of the ocean swims which was no problem.
Abalone place is within walking distance of the beach and a number of restaurants and attractions so is ideally located.
we'll be back!

Very Good location in P.E and the Owner was really great to us, and helped us with all we needed. Even more... I can just recommend this place! We would definitely come back when we are in South Africa. Thanks

What a wonderful welcome Cynthia gave us here. We stayed here twice in August with our grown up daughter and when we arrived the second time it felt like coming home! Cynthia has an amazing memory for recalling your particular preferences in your room, and what you like to eat. Nothing is too much trouble and her attention to detail is amazing. The Guest house is beautifully laid out with individual entrances to the en suite rooms. The beds are incredibly comfortable and warm, the design is clean and modern and each room is individually decorated. There is plenty of hot water and the bathrooms are streamlined and modern. The rates are very reasonable too and we felt it was worth every penny as you get such a personal service. Cynthia is always there to offer advice on going out, where to eat, where to walk and shop. Her breakfasts too are excellent with everything on offer you could want. If we are in PE again we would definitely stay here.
