I have been staying at this guest house for the last 6 years when I conduct business in the Port Elizabeth and I can only describe it has a home away from home. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is something I always look forward to with them.

We've had a short stay at Bayside Guesthouse and enjoyed it a lot! Location is very close to the airport (approx 10 minutes) which is just perfect if you arrive in the evening.

When we arrived (early) Janine greeted us very warmly and showed us to our room and explained the layout of the guesthouse. The guesthouse is well appointed, with a swimming pool and our little room was in the...
