Dockside is a beautiful guest house with an outstanding view of the pretty marina and harbour at Port Alfred. Our room was very large and comfortable with a kingsize bed, easy chairs, lovely bathroom, huge picture window and direct access to a spacious and relaxing patio. Travellers should be aware that there is some traffic noise from the road below the guesthouse, but the pluses far outweigh any negative and the property is extremely well located for all amenities and attractions. Pat and Des are lovely, welcoming hosts and Pat went out of her way to help us with any arrangements we wished to make and in recommending sights to see and excellent restaurants. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and takes a sincere interest in her guests having a lovely stay. Breakfasts are outstanding, with a wide variety of freshly prepared and delicious dishes. Guests enjoy a great deal of privacy and yet help is always at hand if needed. All in all an excellent and professional bed and breakfast.
