Even before we parked the car we felt welcome by the porter who quickly helped us with our luggage. Lovely large room, nicely decorated, with a view of the dock and the sea. Helpful staff. On site restaurant and bar, great vibe even for us oldies. Would certainly return.

We liked the location very much, we had a large apartment room, very clean and with sight to the harbour and to the sea. The bathtub was very nice, we loved the size of it. Breakfast is not extraordinary but still very good.

Our family of 3 adults stayed at the Protea Hotel's Harbour Suite (room #33) for only 1 night but it was such a gorgeous and classy apartment suite that we would have loved to stay several more nights if our itinerary had allowed it.

Spent the night at the Protea hotel in Mossel Bay. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. A stellar barman in the Oyster bar overlooking the water. Good food both for dinner and breakfast. Freshly renovated room with a cool silver, grey and aqua colour pallet. Would highly recommend it over the nearby Protea hotel in George.
