Review by Daniel Rey (Mauritius)

We were impressed by the house and its spectacular view on the little harbor. Des and Pat gave us a fantastic breakfast and were very welcoming. Our night stay was really too short!!! Thank you again

Review by Nomsa (Johannesburg)

Beautiful rooms, I especially liked the harbour room. The view from the room was spectacular. The owners were so warm and the breakfast was consistently 5 star; perfect eggs everyday. Thanks to Pat and Dez, for 5 star treatment, you two take service to another level. I'm definitely recommending Dockside to all my friends.

Review by Christine Smal (Graaf Reinet)

Thank you for your hospitalit. We enjoyed our stay and the amazing views. Thanks for the great tips to explore the area and the really awesome breakfasts. The Harbour room was wonderful - to admire your fairy land at night with all the lights around the harbour - and in the day watch the activity with all the boats.

Very Good

Review by Tembela Jonas (Port Elizabeth)

It was my first time in Port Alfred, and being at the Dockside Guesthouse felt like I was still at home. The privacy of the guesthouse makes it my choice over and over again. The view of the harbour from my very own room (especially in the evening) was just superb!

Review by Dianne Smith (East London)

Thank you so much for everything. The room was delightful - the most comfortable bed - and the breakfast always delectable. We so enjoyed chatting to you and were really able to appreciate the area because of the information you had given us.

Review by Loren Smith (East London )

I have just finished my week long stay at Dockside Guest House and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The view is magnificant of the little boat habour. It is entertaining watching the launching of the boats and goings on in the habour all from my bed!!! This is value for money and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Port Alfred.

Overall a fantastic and i will be definitely returning soon.
