Sitting high on the hill overlooking the bay, ClassicalView is quiet, safe, clean and truly wonderful. We enjoyed a large room with slider looking out to the beach, gorgeous clean and big bathroom, a delicious breakfast served by the new owner of the B&B. She's swiss - so be prepared for the best muesli you've ever eaten - and that's... More

We've been at Classical view a while ago and I still have good memories about our visit. The rooms are clean, the view is magnificent, the food is good and the hospitality of Andrea and Godfried was great. When I'm in South Africa again, I would certainly go back to Classical View.

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
