I won't be the first to admit that all establishments, no matter how good has it bad qualities.
Point Village Hotel is no exception.
If I think of our stay there, the first thing I remember is the noise. Especially when you are trying to sleep.
My suggestion would be if you're gonna stay there, take an afternoon nap. Our last night there, I think I slept for 4 hours. I was battling to fall asleep as all i could hear was cutlery, pots, pans, glassware, voices and general noise from the restaurant downstairs. When that eventually died down, I had to endure listening to the bathroom ventilation fans each time one of the neighboring room's occupants went to the loo or showered.
So it's definitely not a place for the light sleeper.
On the topic of bathrooms, I found it rather unsettling walking down the passage with the smell of the bathroom and toilet. The windows of the bathroom/toilets all face the passage. I don't mind the smell of shower gel but the toilet smell is kind of off-putting!
Also, the accommodation was NOT self-catering. It had a microwave, mini fridge, kettle and plates and cutlery. So you could warm (pre-made) foods and make cereal but that's about it. It would've also been great if on the room description it stated that there is NO BRAAI FACILITIES. Unfortunately, we had to eat out every evening and for lunch which was not what we planned. We would've appreciated being told exactly what to expect from the room that we booked.
On a happier note, the decor was lovely, the bathroom modern and the area was wonderful.

- The Point Village Hotel has made a significant statement with its presence at the entrance to the popular Mossel Bay Point recreational area. The Point Village Hotel offers luxury accommodation in 16 en-suite rooms, each with its own kitchenette, as well as 7 suites with self catering facilities, each with 2 en-suite bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens and 6 fully self catering units with 3 bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, lounge, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The atmosphere is chic yesterday that blends with modern today in a relaxing holiday feeling. The hotel rooms are very spacious, luxurious and furnished in contemporary stylish but unpretentious themes. The hotel has not only become popular with South Africans but has also become a first night venue for hikers on the World Renowned Oystercatcher Trail. A typical quote is from Gary Welsh, the leader of one of the hiking groups who spent a night here on Sunday last week, before setting off on the 4 day walk along the coast to Gouritz River, "Great and spacious rooms, modern and in a way futuristic. The decor is stimulating and unusual, moving away from the normal ‘copy and paste style’ of most hotels. The locality is indeed, unbeatable." ... more less
