We had the whole villa for ourselfes. The rooms are really nice, extremely nice decorated and the staff was friendly. And the best thing is that its right at the beach. Good breakfast included in the already great value price. Great stay

This guest house was in a superb position and we were able to relax and enjoy the views as we unwound towards the end of our trip. Our room was lovely and the breakfast excellent. It was a bit more expensive than some of our others guest houses but it did not disappoint. The new owner was just taking over... More

Classical view delivers everything they promise and more. The view is spectacular and we had a fantastic stay. You have go into Mosselbaai for shops/ food, but it is a quick drive. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Classical View for 1 night on a road trip on the Garden Route. The location is spectacular, at Dana Bay, about 8km from Mossel Bay and away from the bustle. Rooms are very well laid out and have a great view. They have a pool where we sat and enjoyed a glass of wine. We didnt get... More

We stayed for 2 nights and would have stayed much longer if possible. Our room was overlooking the ocean and in the morning we had a small zoo right in front of our window. Fantastic. The location is a bit tucked away a few km outside of Mossel Bay which makes it very easy to reach. The owners were very... More

What a beautiful place to relax. Everything from the view to the service was just great. A special thanks to the host and hostess for being so helpful and given us this memorable stay in South Africa. I highly recommend this hotel.

Without doubt the best BnB we have stayed at. The immaculately manicured garden with indigenous plants invites in the bird life and is in turn surrounded by a nature conservancy. The spectaclar view can be enjoyed from the balconies or while relaxing on the lounges next to the sparkling pool. No detail overlooked in the tastefully decorated rooms, even the... More

We stayed one night on our trip along the Garden Route and everything was fab! The rooms and views were spectacular. The owners were very attentive and helpful. We ate at Kingfishers in Mossel Bay, as there are no local eating places. The food there was good value and the place had a great atmosphere. A shuttle service to the... More

Can't ask for a better place to stay. The hosts were awesome as well as the amazing views and grounds. Very quiet place that allows a person to relax. Breakfast? Stunning to say the least. We will definitely return to this place for sure! Mossel bay is a very short drive where much more can be explored.

We stayed one night at Classical View and we enjoyed every single moment there, from the view and the garden, to the rooms, the breakfast and the hosts. They even have a shuttle to the restaurants in Mossel Bay. With no doubt it was the best place we stayed along the Garden Route. We will go back!!!
