All in all our stay was very nice. The room was neat and clean and had a lovely view of the Marina. Would have preferred at least a Queen Size bed as we are not used to a Double so was a bit of a squeeze. Traffic on the main road was a bit noisy with trucks especially but after 2nd night you get used to it. Our hosts were very accommodating and gave us ideas on where to dine. Would stay at Dockside again.

Well, this is a very special trip for me. We had the pleasure of using the main bedroom for around R350 a night with my now fiance. The room was huge and had so much space. This was perfect because this was a pleasure holiday. The host was very pleasant. Advised us on areas we can visit.

The view from the guest house is just amazing. You can hear the sound of the ocean before you fall asleep.

Room Tip: Beg for the main bedroom if you have to!

Pictures don't lie, what you see on the net is what you'll get. Such a beautiful guesthouse with a view to die for. Thank you so much Pat and Des for your hospitality and amazing breakfast. Managed to explore Port Alfred quite a bit because of Pat ❤️❤️. It's really affordable and worth your money

My friend and I stayed over for a few nights. The breakfast was over the top amazing. We spent a few hours in the lounge one night which is on the ground floor but since the property is on a steep slope, its quite elevated. The night lights over the Marina were beautiful. The boats in the Marina are beautiful to see during the day too. It was a haven after a busy conference and I'm definitely going to recommend it to my friends.

Stayed: July 2016

This guesthouse is very comfortable with spectacular views of the Port Alfred Harbour. It also has a spacious upstairs lounge and large table for working.
Positives: Good Breakfast, Comfortable bed, Flat screen TV, cable Channels, fridge, tea/coffee station. Nice veranda overlooking the Harbour. Ideal for sundowners.
Negatives: I would have to think hard to find one. I would say the only small negative is tat if you have a room near the breakfast room, it can wake you up in the morning. However these are the rooms with a better view, so a trade off.

Room Tip: trade off best harbour views have rooms closest to breakfast room which may be a noise factor
