The Edward Charles is well situated for anyone holidaying or working in Mossel Bay and has comfortable rooms with a very comfortable bed. When I booked, I asked for a room with a sea view, balcony and bar fridge and looked forward to getting such when checking in, however, the people using that room before me extended their stay with...

We had the pleasure at staying here in December 2014. The staff were very warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, including the bed! The breakfast was delicious, and served by friendly staff, who were coping with an unscheduled power outage. We had a balcony, from where we got a good view of Mossel Bay. We would certainly return.

We had a 3 man bike tour and stayed 1 night, great hotel with amazing view. The breakfast was very good and the service couldn't be better. Please don't expect a brand new 5 Star facility, that isn't what this is. This is a very friendly local family feel place to stay and relax. I'll be going back when I'm... More

Hotel building itself is fine, but it is not near any restaurants or bars. On checking out manager demanded payment despite written information from Expedia advising had paid in full. It turned out that despite payment being sent to them they had not accepted it. Hotel did very little to resolve it themselves and refused to contact expedia.

Stayed here as part of a road trip. Was not first choice as other booked up but seemed next best. Good enough location to walk to town centre and the museum/old post office area but need to drive to beach. Rooms a but dated but beds are fantastic as are the views from the rooms we stayed in, inside and... More

I lived 2 months in Mossel Bay for my studies and stayed at the Edward Charles manor and I can say: I was never disappointed. The service was more than excellent, the staff always friendly, the food served every morning was very good and warm. The room I had had a very beautiful balcony with an amazing view on the... More

We stayed here for a night as part of our honeymoon in August. We were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our room. We had a large room, clean and comfortable with all amenities you would need. Out balcony had a fantastic view over the bay! The room was slightly old fashioned but just needs a... More

We stayed here for one night when doing the Garden Route. The hotel is ok, with nice views from the room we had and the room was clean. Tha breakfast was very poor and they didn't offer us any eggs or omelette, even when the table next to us was eating eggs and beacon. The receptionist was fine but wasn't... More

Rooms are spacious and very neat and clean - comfy bed! The hotel itself is located very centrally. The staff (from cleaning to management) were all super friendly and the breakfast was just delicious!

We stayed here on our way along the garden route. The hotel is clean and the facilities are secure and reasonably priced. The location is not within walking distance of the beach, so be prepared to drive if you want to get to the waterfront. Wifi was unreliable at best. Nothing wrong with this hotel, but nothing to make it... More
