"We stayed at Weaver Suite. The main issues we came across were the cleanliness, outside noise disturbances and the poor Wi-Fi signal. We found the microwave pretty dirty on the inside and the splash cover had a lot of grime on it. The Wi-Fi signal strength was only decent if you stood near the entrance of the room, but most of the room had no signal. The owner of the establishment was aware of this, which confused me a little because there are interventions that could have been taken to boost the signal. The DSTV access advertised on the site is not what it seems. We had no DSTV connection to our room and we were told to inform the owner if we needed to watch a specific channel. Lastly, the noise factor from people staying in adjacent rooms and properties at night time was not ideal. In general however, the stay was decent "


"Brilliant hosts, lovely suite"

(South Africa) Rehana Mather | 26 January 2016

"Had a very pleasant stay in the Weaver suite over Ironman weekend. Its about 300m from the race start, so the perfect location for athletes. Weaver is self-catering,which worked well for us. Our hosts were very accomodating, and went out of their way to make sure we did not need anything.Ê"

- The chair in the room is very small.

- The television set is very small.

- The should be a 24-hour check-in service (i.e. arranging for the room key to be picked up at some alternative venue, which opens 24-hours.)"


"Peace and tranquillity"

(South Africa) Roland Hendricks | 9 May 2012

"Beautiful, very cosy, quiet, neat and clean and in walking distance to the beach front. A must for someone to have a getaway and spend a pieceful break away from the hustle and bustle from the home and city life....If it is a good rest that you need, then Portside Inn is the place to be."

"I was first booked in a room in the main house which was fine. Around 18:00 I was informed that there was a cancellation and a self-catering room became vacant. This was a wonderful surprise and made my stay there the worthwhile. I often would go to East London on official business and would surely make use of this establishment in the future as well as recommending it to my colleagues.
I hope Portside Inn grow from strength to strength.

"Portside Inn (owners) were very hospitable and friendly. The room & bathroom was adequate, clean & comfortable & your car is locked behind a gate on the property so it is safe. The load sheading of Eskom was unfortunate & a lot but could not be helped. When the lights did go out the owner brought us a candle & matches and offered us a flask of boiling water to make tea (I thought that was a nice gesture!).
Portside is a close stroll down to the beach promenade. The owners made sure we were informed of all the restaurants in the vicinity and in some cases supplied us with their menus. In all it was pleasant accommodation!"
