A lovely guest house, a home from home.

All the rooms have a lovely view over the Port Alfred habour. The rooms are big and there's outdoor areas that your can use.

Port Alfred have nice weather and a lot to do. There are a few nice little towns around that you can visit and Port Elizabeth or East London are only one and a half hours drive from there.

Stayed 4 nights from 1 to 5 October 2017 at Dockside. Got a friendly welcome from Pat. Room was comfortable and very spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking the marine. Des makes a mean breakfast and was definitely something to look forward to each morning!!! During our stay Pat gave us valuable information where to eat and what to to in and around Port Alfred. She went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

Room Tip: Ask for room with direct access to balcony

It has a picture perfect view across the harbour of Port Alfred and has spacious rooms. The people are very helpful. The breakfast is exceptionally good and I would say that this is your nr.1 destination to stay.

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...
