“Could've been better....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

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 hotels located at the point , next to a variaty of good restaurants. The rooms are spacious and colourful with small touches that makes you feel at home. There is a little kitchenette that makes it practical. Service is good and the underroof parking keeps your car safe.

I made a reservation with Juanita Pienaar who was very friendly and proffessional. On the day of arrival we were welcome by a very friendly receptionist by the name of Anmie who took me to the #6 for rooming. We were then told to go and park in a very secured and tidy undercover parking.

The hotel is located in a fantastic location. We stayed in room #06 with a great comfortable bed. Plenty of space in the bedroom, Flat screen TV wich was perfect for the FIFA World Cup game that we watched, Lovely seating area, Stunning fully equipped kitchen enough for a couple, Then there is an excellent walk in double shower. The decor in the room is amaizing

We sat outside the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean and enjoyed our sundowners before we went for a delicious dinner at Kingfisher. We had a lovely breakfast at Delfinos every morning with a fantastic full sea veiw.

Point Village Hotel is amaizing and I would rate them to 5 * Thank you to all Juanita and all her proffessional staff for making our stay the most enjoyable one.

What a lovely surprise to stop at the Point Village Hotel Mosselbay where the sign of
R 245 pp attract out attention. The receptionist Carmen welcomed us and we could choose a room that we like from the 8 rooms left in the hotel.
The rooms are decorated so unique and each with a different taste that it was difficult to choose. No 6 was our favourite.
We had a lovely meal at the King Fisher restaurant only 100 meters away from the hotel. Breakfast at the Delfinos was about to make our stay extended. We really recommend Point Village Hotel as excellent value for money.
We enjoyed the hiking trail with the most beautiful secenery and the swim in the most natural pool we ever had.

I traveled down the Garden Route with a group of tourism industry marketing people and everywhere we had presentations, overnighted, stopped for lunch or inspections people thoroughly used the opportunity to embrase the visit and to network and make connections with us. The one place that stood out for not doing so was Point Village Hotel. I found it not to be very friendly. To get to the receiption area (little corner?) you have to go up a set of steep narrow stairs with barely enough space for you and your case. There was nobody to help the ladies with their cases. We shared the units and in our unit were 4 guys. The rooms in our unit were the size of small cells. One guy asked if they could perhaps spread us out a bit and the receptionist said the owner left strict instructions for her not to do it. The bedrooms had no aircon or ceiling fans with no outside windows while the kitchen had two coffees, two teas, four sugar and two milks for 4 people. The units were equiped with the most modern appliences and the hotel is ideally situated, but the service and the layout leaves much to be desired.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
