“The best room in the house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We enjoyed our short stay at the Aquamarine Guest House. Being welcomed with a sherry or orange juice on checking in was a nice touch as was being upgraded to the best room in the house. it was enormousI The massive deck on the first floor overlooking the sea was much appreciated.
The breakfast was of a high standard.
We would have liked to stay longer. there is nothing I could fault about this guest house.

We stayed at this delightful Guest House en route to Kynsna, and found the quality of the room, the service and the facilities excellent. One point to mention is that Marsh Street is quite steep, and turning into the guest house entrance requires care!

Travelling along garden Route we had a pleasure to stay at Aquamarine. Friendly staff, amazing room and a very nice breakfast. If you have a time to spend at Mossel Bay choose the Aquamarine Guest House. You won't regret.

Having a trip from Keurboomstrand to Cape Town, we did an overnight stop at Aquamarine, on Marsh street, Mossel Bay. The room was spotless, airy, well furnished, and - because it was Valentine's day- had heart shaped chocolates and candles. The bed was roomy and comfortable, and breakfast was excellent. A good place to stay in Mossel Bay, and recommend it thoroughly.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite very spacious, choice of corner bath or big shower, and a nice verandah/balcony...

We just spent a couple of days in this guesthouse and were really pleased with our choice. It is really well thought out, the staff are friendly and the rooms are spotless, modern and well appointed. The view from the garden is beautiful - you can see right across the bay- great to watch the sunset from. It is slightly out of town and the road is quite noisy and busy but overall I could not say one bad thing about it. Breakfast is fresh and delicious, they even leave a different chocolate bar by your tea everyday.... Definite winner for me!!

Room Tip: Room 5 does not have wifi so as for another if you want good signal.

Aquamarine guest house can be compared to any five star accommodation with regards to service, cleanliness and hospitality! We stayed for 15 days and had a wonderful experience. The owner as well as staff were extremely accommodating and we felt at home. I will certainly recommend the honey moon suite as the room is spacious with wonderful sea views! Thanks to Lientjie and her competent staff for making our stay a memorable experience. We will certainly see you again!
