Overall a great stay at Dockside, the hosts Pat and Des were extremely helpful with advice on places to go and see and were also very accommodating. Breakfast was excellent and kept us going till dinner!! We were very happy with our stay there and would certainly consider Dockside should we visit Port Alfred again. Only one tiny request, would...

From the minute we made our booking the lady who assisted us was nowhere near helpful, even after receiving the proof of payment I still had to contact her and her reply was unwelcoming. Upon arriving in Port Alfred we had to first go to the owners house first and then get directions to the guesthouse. As we entered, the... More

What can we say, nothing has changed, and it was absolute pleasure to stay with you both again. Not your fault the weather was a bit UGH! We will be back next year, rest assured. Thank you both Des and... More

Dockside has the most amazing views! the Sea room is beautiful, clean and very welcoming, overlooking the harbor made for beautiful views that one could just not get tired of seeing. The owners Pat and Dennis were very welcoming and assisted us in every way possible. The upside to Dockside is that it is in walking distance of most things... More

This place is great value for money, we stayed one night in a downstairs room and one in the top room. Hosts, though initially a little hard to find(!) had a wealth of information and spent lots of time helping us plan and make the most of our stay, and we enjoyed breakfast immensely. There is a big shared space... More

Dockside Guest House has amazing views overlooking the marina at Port Alfred. The Harbour room is upstairs and excellent with a private balcony. Huge bathroom and the owners Pat and Dennis are very friendly and informative. Excellent value for money and breakfast to die for.
