                      We stayed at Dockside Guest House for one night before we started our hiking tour from Port Alfred to Fish river mouth.

                      Fabulous house; stunning view; friendly owners - we had a lovely stay!

                      It was only a one night stay over, but we really felt welcome and at home. We had the downstairs room with a sliding door walking into a garden that had a lovely view of the yacht harbour. The room was clean with enough space. Remember that it would be more advisable to drink bottled water in this area. Our host, Niel was attentive and helpful. Many thanks, we enjoyed our stay.
