We have a branch in PE and I have to travel there regularly. The very first time I stayed at Bayside I felt like I was part of the family. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. The hosts are warm and friendly, and the breakfast is out of this world. I have been back on numerous occassions and have always felt like I was coming home. Bayside is the place I choose when staying in PE.

I stayed at Bayside Guesthouse with my 2 friends during the World Cup and it must have been one of the best if not the best place we stayed in South Africa!
Our rooms were comfortable and very well decorated, our hosts were friendly and very helpful (they even managed to help us change our flights to Johannesburg, which was quite difficult over that period as everything was fully booked). The guesthouse is really well situated, close to the airport, close to the stadium transport and close to the entertainment area and the breakfast was great!
Could not have asked for more....I hope to be back one day.

Bayside is quite some way from the centre of Port Elizabeth but within walking distance of he tourist Boardwalk for restaurants/cinema/fairground. Rooms airy, well equipped though would welcome more TV channels. Breakfast very good, and to your individual taste. Secure and in a pleasant part of the town.

Wonderful accommodation & outstanding hospitality.
The rooms were lovely, the surroundings serene and the breakfasts delicious!
It’s certainly a place we will return to the next time we’re in “the friendly city”.

We stayed at Bayside Guesthouse on the last few days of our South African holiday and we had a wonderfull time.
Clifford, Stephanie and the staff looked after us so well and made us feel so welcome.
Our room was great and we relly enjoyed the pool and garden. Breakfast was divine...
We will definately be back!

We stayed here for just 1 night, and were put in a room that was not on the website's photos. It was a disappointing room, we had not expected this from a 4 star B&B. The room looked very "tired" to us.
The owners and staff made up for the accommodation, they were friendly and discreet.
Beware of walking in the gardens, dog droppings are quite common. There is a gardener who cleans every morning, but the owners do apparently not care about maintenance during the day.
This B&B was conveniently located near to a good restaurant, so all in all it was not too bad, it's Ok for a 1 night stop over.

The room and bathroom were spacious, the hosts friendly and helpful, the breakfast tasty, the parking secured. However we would have to agree with other comments that Port Elizabeth itself wasn't all that great, at least not for us.
