Dockside Guest House
Ranked #6 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I have stayed in the Dockside Guest House twice now and the rooms and the service are of a very high standard. Although the Guest House is situated close to the main thoroughfare through Port Alfred it is more than made up with the views that you have.
Breakfast is excellent with a good selection and you will have the best scrambled eggs there that you have ever had.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well apportioned and have good views but undoubtedly the main bedroom upstairs is...

I had a lovely room downstairs, overlooking the yacht basin. It was comfortable, and well equipped with everything I expected and needed. The off-street parking was fine, and it was a short drive from the house to good restaurants in town.

This place is above & beyond for what one would normally get at this price. The rooms are all wonderfully decorated. The hosts are very kind and even lent us an additional heater of their own in winter. Pat kindly recommended activities and restaurants in the region, beyond Port Alfred. And the view from the lounge or room balcony is lovely. The shower in our room was very small so if you're finicky about shower space please ask the host for a room with a larger shower.

Pam and Des drove out and helped us change our flat tire before we checked in. To say the least, it was clearly service above and beyond the typical. We also appreciated all the tips they had about local shops and sights. We will happily return.
