    Breakfast very poor cheap sliced pan no other bread. Processed cheese wrapped we call them easy singles at home. Fruit an insult tinned peaches and tinned pineapple and portion so small in a glass. Dogs poo outside our bedroom in the morning there are two dogs there one of them jumped into bed beside our son in his room. Body lotion watered down. Our first night in SA and we found it v disappointing

    5 Sterne für ein Hotel, an dem man warmherzig empfangen und einzigartig verwöhnt wird. Alida und Mathias haben ihre Leidenschaft zum Beruf gemacht. Wer familiäre Atmosphäre mag, ist hier goldrichtig. Liebevoll gestaltete, große Zimmer. Top Hygiene, fantastisches englisches Frühstück frisch nach Wunsch zubereitet. Am Pool wurden wir mit einem guten Gläschen Wein verwöhnt. Wer ein Souvenir für die lieben Daheimgebliebenen oder sich selbst sucht, wirft einen Blick auf Mathias selbst entworfene Schmuckkollektion. Außergewöhnlich, zu günstigen Preisen. Wir lieben dieses Guesthouse und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen.

    En fin oas i Port Elisabeth

    Vi kom med bil och blev mycket förtjusta i Bayside guest house. En helt fantastisk liten oas, med rena fräscha rum, alla egna ingångar i små egna hus. En fin liten pool, bra parkering, gångavstånd till strandpromenad, god frukost, vänlig personal. Personligt bemötande.

    Aconchegante e simpático. Confortável.

    Lugar bonito, decorado com bom gosto e capricho. Pátio com privacidade. Camas muito confortáveis, quarto amplo, pequena cozinha pratica e funcional. Café da manhã muito gostoso, o suficiente. Atendimento pelos próprios donos, aliás, é uma casa que foi transformada em "pousada". Tudo muito organizado e limpo. Destaque para a simpatia dos donos e atendimento. Adoramos. Pela localização precisa de carro pra se locomover pela cidade.
