I'd rather stay at Bayside Guesthouse than the Radisson, Paxton or any other place in Port Elizabeth; the warm, friendly and family-like atmosphere draws me back! Was travelling to the Ado Elephant Park on the Sunday and was no problem to provide a cooler box for me. The braai (barbecue) and swimming pool area is amazing and they provide everything... More

Beautiful place with a perfect location close to the beach and all amenities. Very friendly hosts with clean and well laid out rooms. Great breakfast and in summertime the pool area would be spectacular.
