The view to Blue Bay had excellent service with friendly staff and an amazing view of the ocean. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay just outside the hustle and bustle of PE central.

We were on a writing retreat for a week. I was attracted by the photos on the website. Overall our stay was great. Thanks to Andi who went out of her way to ensure we had a great retreat week. Room was quiet overlooking the ocean which was awesome place to think and write. Always looked forward to breakfast as it was always nice. I will definitely visit again especially because of the kind hospitality of Andi.

Welcomed with a smile, stayed in a room facing the sea with great views. Breakfast was great with sea view facing. Walking distance to the beach and easy access to the airport. Great place, excellent service, big ups to Andy. Will definitely call again soon

We were due to stay here for one night as part of our Garden Route tour. We arrived to a nice lady who welcomed us and showed us to our room. The room was directly off of the communal dining room which we found "odd". On entering the room it smelt "musty". The carpet was gruby and matted, the cushions on the bed had mould on them, the panel heater was cracked and broken, the fridge housing was cracked/broken, the bedside lights had bare wires and the bathroom had very worn and dirty tiles/grouting. The view from the balcony was lovely as opposite the ocean but this wasn't enough to make us stay. We left within 20 minutes and booked into a hotel just up the road. I don't normally make negative reviews but I do not believe that the advertised pictures for this B&B reflect a true accurate picture.

Had a great time at Blue Bay. Fabulous views. Waves, ships and even dolphins. It’s across from the boardwalk, where people enjoy exercising. Walking, jogging and cycling. Large room. Spacious shower and bathroom. It’s within walking distance to restaurants too. Breakfast has all you need. Coffee, tea, fruit, croissants, muffins, as well as cooked food. Andy is an asset to this establishment. Efficient and very kind hearted. The only downside is that there is a bit of maintenance that needs to be taken care of in the house and the room but this does not affect the stay.
