In a quiet area and within an easy walk of the water front and places to eat. A short drive into Pt Elizabeth and an ideal location for touring. Comfortable rooms and nice breakfasts and secure parking for cars.

I stayed at Bayside for a week whilst visiting my daughter who lives and works just outside Port Elizabeth. She took the week off and stayed with me there - our room was fabulous, I was really pleased I'd booked a bigger room, having the sofa in there seemed to make it feel more luxurious. The room was clean and... More

We stayed at Bayside for a week with our 18 month old son. From the point of booking our room, Stephanie and Janine was very friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating especially with our busy little boy that was very noisy and running around everywhere wanting to explore and getting over excited about seeing their dog every morning. Stephanie... More
