It was a better experience than I'd come to expect, the hostess Natasha alone made the experience seamless & rather homely. I'd recommend any traveller to check in. I honestly could not have asked for a better stay given all that I had to deal with during my time at the guesthouse but I found it to be a home...

The Blu Trea was our first experience in South Africa. It was close to midnight when we arrived and Natasja was waiting for us. We were parched and dying for a couple of beers. It is not sold at the Blu Trea but Natasja brought us some from her personal supply. How wonderful was that! Breakfast was delicious and the...

As a first time guest of Blu Trea, I was pleasantly surprised at the welcome I received. I booked the Superior room which was spacious, homely and elegantly decorated. The host and staff are helpful, friendly and present, whilst also respecting the privacy of their guests. Breakfast is hearty and hot meals are freshly prepared for each individual guest. The...

We enjoyed our stay at blu trea in the serene Melville neighbourhood. The shop's are a stone throw away and conviently placed in case you need to grab something from there. The restaurant are also nearby though we didn't get a chance to dine at any one of them. The only drawback for me was the cat which am not...

I stay with Nathasha's Blue Trea approximately 5 to 6 times per year and have done so over the past 3 years. I have never had a bad experience. I do so because it reminds me of home, very comfortable and Natasha is a great hostess. The rooms are clean and fresh. The linen is luxurious and crisp.

True old fashioned hospitality, second to none. Enjoyed my stay in this quaint B&B. Excellent service, well appointed accommodation and facilities make this my preferred home from home. Attention to detail by owner / operator, Natasja, is appreciated. So close to medical and educational facilities yet in quiet and safe neighborhood. Will be back.

Spending a week at Blu Trea was a glorious experience, the gorgeous linen, the fine details and decor that Natasja has in the rooms made being away from home totally unnoticeable.
