Booked 5 minutes prior to arriving and reception arrival was excellent, prompt efficient and aware of our arrival.

Large bathroom, spotless, steaming hot water and amenities supplied.

The most comfortable bed I have had forever! Host was polite, helpful and will highly recommend this property.

Ann's place is lovely! It's located in a great neighborhood, only 2 blocks from the beach. The rooms are all inside a gated area so you feel safe (and know your vehicle is safe as well). The pool area was nice, and the whole yard is landscaped. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and Ann was very friendly. I would 100% recommend Ann's place.

The host was very friendly and responsive. I arrived late around 9 pm driving from East London and the host took the time to welcome me and ensured I had all that I need for the night. It was my second stay at Blue Lotus and will be back again

We stayed at blue lotus guesthouse during the weekend of Ironman 2023 and it was amazing. With all the stress surrounding Ironman Ann and her team ensured our stay was as peaceful and stress free as possible! The rooms were fantastic and so clean. The location was perfect, place right in the heart of all the excitement but in a secure spot where you could escape the noise to relax

We had a great stay at the Blue Lotus Guest House! Due to early morning plans we had to leave before breakfast, but Ann was super accommodating to help out with earlier breakfast. Additionally she provided us a cereal & fruit salad breakfast the night before our very early departure. Great service and relaxed stay :)

Room is very clean and neat. Only thing I would suggest is putting a rug on the floor near the beds. Floors are very cold. Water bottles could have also been provided. Lovely location, close to the beach.

Guesthouse needs a revamp - painting etc. Place looks tired and past its prime. The owner did not come to meet or welcome us. We saw a For Sale sign outside so we presumed that she had lost interest in being involved. The pool looked uninviting and stark with a lack of flowers of vegetation of any kind.

The most comfortable beds, clean, friendly host and definitely felt at home. I will recommend this place to everyone and anyone. No disturbance as I was working on my laptop, the cleaner is also very friendly. She seem happy with a smile every day, I observed how Ann treated her and always very impressed by their relationship. That's very rareand special... keep it up Ann! Thank you 😊

Stayed at Blue Lotus Guesthouse for 3 days in Oct 2023. Ann (the host) is very welcoming and helpful. The room looks great, and it is tidy.

Location is excellent: less than a minute of walk to the beach. There is a mall and another shopping centre nearby - both within walking distance.
