“Wonderful surprize”
Reviewed November 19, 2009

What a wonderful experience! As a regular season traveller in RSA I`ve been in guesthouses all over the place. Carslogie house was definitely one of the finest ever. Beautiful and luxurious interior, well kept gardens and total privacy secured. Breakfast was absolutely divine and the guesthouse is close to the beach for an early morning stroll. Host Christine made us feel so welcome and her warm but professional approach wil definitely keep the guests coming. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

We stayed at Carslogie and would recommend it to everyone! The hostess was a delight - always friendly and so helpful! It is so beautiful - yet just like a home. Thanks Christine - we will be back!

We stayed in the guest house for only one night. We were welcomed by Christine who made us feel right at home. The rooms are spacious and the grounds are immaculately kept. Breakfast was lovely. The pool looked very inviting as well. The restaurant recommendation was great as well.
Pity that during check out some remarks were made that we feel are inappropriate. Although we appreciate the fact that an unfortunate incident may have happened we feel it's unsuitable to voice this to other guests and to project one couple's behavior to racial background.

Not much I can add to the previous reviews. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and nicely tucked away in a private courtyard with swimming pool. Breakfast was lovely, with more than enough for anybody. Christine is a helpful host with a nice, cheerful manner. Highly recommended. Is within 10 min walking distance of the boardwalk with a number of restaurants. Theres not actually that much to do in Port Elizabeth, however it does have a lovely beach and promenade for walking.

This was just as the web site described. The guest house is in a very quiet area, the bed was really comfortable, the breakfast excellent and there is a good internet connection in the rooms. Rooms are arranged around a very inviting pool. The complimentary sherry is very nice too.

Had a great one night stay after coming back from Addo. This place is a gem. Immaculate accommodation and a great breakfast. Only negative point is we could only stay one night.! Can't reccommend the place highly enough.

I spent a night in august this year with my wife during our lovely trip to South Africa.
I must say that this guest house is really a jewel. The room was huge well decorated with a superb bathroom, but the whole complex was really nice and the owner is a very nice and gentle lady who has done everything to make our stay so nice.
Definitely a place where to stay if it happens to go to PE.
