We stayed at Bayside Guesthouse during IronMan 2012 and can highly recommend this guesthouse. Cliff, Steph & Janine are fabulous people and super friendly not to mention accommodating in all aspects. We will be back!

Hello Ingrid,

Thank you very much for your review.
We loved having you and the "Mike support crew" staying with us over IronMan this year. A real shame the weather was so unkind on race day, but at least he can say that he is a real "IronMan".
We hope you are all keeping well and we look forward to seeing you again.
All the best.

Stephanie, Cliff, Janine and the Bayside Team.

In March (during our honeymoon) we were guests at Bayside Guesthouse in Port Elizabeth - and we can fully recommend this very kind and beautiful accomodation!

The Guesthouse is located in Summerstrand, a silent part of Port Elizabeth, very near the beach. But you can get to the city without problems also (by car, walk - or running ;-)).

Nadine gave us a very warm welcome, we received a kind small honeymoon package with sweets and sparkling wine, could enjoy the great and lovingly service by Nadine (answering all questions, giving recommendations for dinner, ...), stayed in a comfortable room/suite with high standard and enjoyed the tasteful and comprehensive breakfast - very perfect!

If possible we will be back soon... ;-)

Thank you so much for your kind comments.
We are delighted to hear that you and your lovely bride enjoyed your short stay at Bayside Guesthouse during your honeymoon.
We very much enjoyed meeting the both of you and we hope you visit us again in the “Friendly” City… maybe on one of your wedding anniversaries.

We wish you many years of happiness together.

Kindest Regards

We stayed two nights on our way to the Addo elephant park. Glad we stopped, good breakfast nice people and Cassie the Australian sheep dog was very welcoming. Has a nice pool but did not use. Is in a suberb of PE called Summerstrand, near to the airport which apart from one 0700 flight did not intrude. Short walk to a lovely beach and a twenty minute walk to loads of restaurants and a Casino if that's your poison.
PE itself if worth a visit but don't go looking like a tourist.

My Mom and I had a short family trip to PE for the weekend and being our first trip to the town, we were a little nervous about where to stay and what to expect. After staying at Bayside Guesthouse we would definitely recommend this guesthouse to our family and friends as the venue offers accommodation that is good value for money, clean, comfortable (good quality linen) and most importantly very welcoming! Thank you to Janine, Stephanie and family for making us feel at home : )

Room Tip: Unit 4 is away from the rest of the buildings and has it's own little garden

When staying here, we felt as if we were staying with family. Great people to help you with any questions about the area, but also makes sure you have quiet and private time. I will never forget our stay there. We will always be in touch.

Room Tip: all the rooms were great.

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.
