This B&B is located in a nice area of Port Elizabeth and off a fairly quiet street, with easy and clearly marked access. The B&B is surrounded by a high wall with an entry gate and call button. There is a sufficient, albeit compact, parking area. The garden area runs from the front, by the parking area, all the way around the house and is quite lovely and inviting. We stayed one night on two separate occasions about 3 days apart, each time in a different room. For both stays, the room was spacious and nicely appointed, with a very comfortable bed and a luxurious bathroom with walk-in shower. The breakfasts were both timely and delicious. Finally, the costs were quite moderate, making this B&B one of the highest value propositions we have ever encountered anywhere. If in the future we come back to the Port Elizabeth area, we would definitely look to stay here again.

Many moons ago I visited PE and stayed at Lemon Teee Lane... offcourse I asked to stay there again on this trip to PE and they did not disappoint.

Love the beautiful enormous bed with the cleanest white linnen, friendly service, beautiful breakfst made just for me and a fantastic shower.

What so good about the shower? Everything!

The shower head is high enough for me to stand under it.... I am tall. The pressure and water flow is execellent and it does not get the whole bathroom, all the towels, wet when you do have a shower.

Very close to schools and just a really great place to unwind at the end of a busy day. Rooms are neat and clean and big. Fresh milk for tea and coffee in the fridge coupled with an honesty bar. Breakfasts are delicious and is in a vey safe enclosed property

I cannot recommend Lemon Tree Lane highly enough. The hosts Dee & Ray are charming and extremely understanding when we accidentally booked the wrong date.
The rooms are individually styled with great attention to detail. The beds are soooo comfortable, we slept really well. The gardens and pool area are so tranquil, you might never want to leave.

Great stay. The room is a bit outdated and could use a bit of TLC(bathroom needs extractor fan etc). Small little things. Otherwise everything was great. Breakfast was very nice and service was very friendly.

It was a last minute decision to stay overnight at Lemon Tree Lane, and I'm so glad I did. A great first impression was made when owner Ray personally met me in the car parking area, and then showed me to my room. Rooms are very spacious, quiet and well-equipped. Breakfast was fantastic. Most important to me, my golden retriever (by arrangement) was made welcome too. Thank you Ray and Dee - I will definitely be back in the future.

Our company booked 1 nights' accommodation for our team during an overnight business trip to PE. We were delighted by the hospitality and the Lemon Tree Lane Teams' friendliness and willingness to help. Leonie went out of her way to ensure that our team was well taken care of and even went so far as to accept and facilitate the courier of our marketing materials for the event hosted in PE.

Although our trip was in the middle of a drought but the garden was lush, green and well maintained, providing a serene experience.

The owners of Lemon Tree Lane were very friendly and the team enjoyed their conversation. The breakfast was of a high standard and the rooms were spacious, well equipped and neat.

We look forward to our next stay.

Lemon Tree Lane was my guesthouse of choice for many years during my client visits to the region. I returned on Monday, 8 May after a period of about 6 years, and was received by Ray and Dee, the gracious hosts and owners, as a long lost member of the family. The establishment is still as grand and comfortable as ever and guarantees the best night's sleep, breakfast and overall stay in the Eastern Cape. Thank you Ray and Dee for your endearing reception!

I spent six comfortable and enjoyable days at the Lemon Tree Lane. The accommodation was very comfortable with the room equipped with many extras. The breakfasts were freshly made to order and high quality. The service was friendly and quietly efficient provided by Leonie the manager and the owners. I would definitely return.
