    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...More

    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.
