Reviews for Portside Inn
the place is quite and clean, Love it
A standard B&B next to the beach.
Not up to the standards shown on lekker slaap or their website. Very disappointed!
Friendly people but rooms could use a upgrade
Nice place and neat
The old couple are good, but they are too much. Early mornings knock on the door, the dos and donts (I wish these were documented somewhere so that a person can read by themselves); way too careful to an extent that, it looks like everyone is a suspect. I am making an assumption here that all guests are treated the same, irrespective of their age or racial group. My advice to the guests: good place, but insist on paying first. Then you will have a peace of mind.
We stayed in the Weaver Suite. Very neat, clean, warm and cosy. The WIFI reception was very poor, and there's DSTV, but it's controlled inside the house. This meant we had to phone them whenever we wanted to change the channel.The owners are friendly, but in all honesty, rather come here if you're desperate for a basic room.
Yes, we did it was tops!
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
We stayed in the Weaver suite. This place was a bit more budget than we anticipated. The WIFI reception was very poor and we couldn't get cellular reception inside the building, which was problematic as my husband had to do some work. There isn't really DSTV, you have Mnet and the SABC channels and that's it. The microwave looked gory inside. The surrounding neighbourhood was run down, and has several busy flats and pubs so I didn't feel safe walking with my toddler there. If you just need a bed, this is probably a good stop. The owners are quite friendly.
Very Clean and SafeWell Mannered and friendly staff.We had booked for a week and I would definitely recommend the place or visit again. A big Thank You to Mervyn and His Wife for making us feel at home.
