We had no booking, just showed up at their doorstep and we were handled like we were family. The room we had was spacious, neat and had an awesome view of the sea. The breakfast we were served was delicious and more than enough to cater for any taste. I would go back there any time I can and recommend this guest house to any person. They helped us to get around, as we didn't know the area at all. Great experience, would do it all over again. Thank you so much all staff of Carnoustie Guest House, we appreciate you!

We stayed on the first floor for two nights in January 2016. It was big and open and sorta-luxe, though it looked as if it was in the second decade of its original interior styling; worn cushions, old bathroom fixtures/broken toilet, and bathroom/kitchen items beyond their prime. The unit was comfortable and airy during the day, but we were instructed to close all the windows at night, presumably because of crime in the area (in fact we noticed that every house in the neighborhood was set back behind high walls and electric fences; what a shame). But closing all the windows at night really defeats the purpose of a BEACH house; people want an ocean breeze! Something needs changing there... So yeah, this unit needed repairs/replacements and general updating--it was definitely looking more worn than the shiny website photos suggest. Just FYI. This wasn't our first choice, but for our little family of dusty travelers it was perfectly fine given the reasonable cost; the nearby beaches are lovely, the place is relatively quiet, and the open veranda is a nice place to sit and chill out (though WiFi coverage is rather poor, sorry to say). Some noise from our upstairs neighbors, but it was fine. Travelers: Port Alfred is really not the place I remember--which is both good and bad. Had it not been such a busy, overbooked time of year I'd definitely have sought something further up or down the coast, away from people and noise. But if you want to be more central, this is a decent spot to be near shops and a couple of OK restaurants. (Be warned that on holiday weekends, restaurants are overcrowded.)

Yvonne and the cleaning lady were friendly and helpful. Our unit was huge and a joy to live in. It has all the equipment that one needs except maybe a tumble dryer which would be useful. We are looking forward to our third visit at the end of this year!

On arrival we were welcomed by Yvonne who showed us to our room. It was spacious, had all the expected necessities, but in particular had a lovely view of the Indian Ocean. Access to a lovely lounge with an equally stunning view. Good breakfast and honesty bar in the lounge completed a lovely stay.
