Dockside Guest House
Ranked #6 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 November 2016

What a lovely place to stay.
A home away from home.
Excellent breakfast served by Des and Pat.
Would surely return next year. Lots to do and Pat gave us lots of information on what to do. Port Alfred is a wonderful village to visit and not far from Port Elizabeth.

Room Tip: Harbor room has the best view. All the rooms have nice views.

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!
