Perfect 3-day stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Jan 2019
Everything was spot-on. Loved our room which was perfect for slightly mobility-challenged husband, and our little balcony overlooking the harbour. Enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, Pat for her warm welcome and interesting breakfast chats, and Des for his amazing scrambled eggs!

Had a great weekend at Dockside Guests House. Easy to find and not far from the center and the beach. The view also made our stay fabulous. Me and my husband would love to book there again. Really enjoyed our stay.

Close to restaurants and shops. There was a sign up that said kitchen was out of bounds to guests, which was a bit of an inconvenience. Bed was very comfortable. Bit noisy as the guesthouse is next to the main road- lots of trucks through the night. Overall, very enjoyable stay.

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry about the noise but then we have the lovely view.
The kitchen is not for the guests as in the past the guests have misused it.

The views from our room and the lounge area were spectacular. The downside is that it is just off the main road, so it get's a bit noisy.The bed was very comfortable, but the bathroom was not very clean.

Sorry about the noise but you get the view.
Have noted your comments about the bathroom and checked it after you left and have sorted that out.

If i want to a place to sleep in Port Alfred i will choose Dockside Guest House again. That place is very clean and also the view there is very beautiful. Its so convenient for travelers and its also not far from town.
