What a beautiful guest house and Pia made us so welcome. The rooms were clean,spacious and very comfortable with an amazing view over the sea. We would have stayed longer had we not had to continue our journey along the Garden Route. We would definitely like to return to explore the area more.

Classical View BnB was an amazing stay. Much much better than what it looks like in the pictures. With an amazing view of the ocean, the property is perfectly located and beautifully done. Super clean, easily accessible and a warm host, I'd strongly recommend Classical View to anyone who is looking for a stay around the Mossel Bay area, but... More

We stayed here just one night but it was very nice a relaxing. Nice room with comfy bed and lovely pool area. The breakfast was also very tasty. Host was lovely and Yoshi the dog was great. Only downside is no restaurants close by but the rooms and views are worth the drive for dinner.

We have just returned from a tour of the Cape and the western end of the Garden Route and Classical View stood out as the best accommodation of our trip. Indeed, it would be hard not to rate it with 5 stars on all counts. The location is stunning, looking out over a small, but beautiful, garden then over lush... More

From the moment you arrive Pia does everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The views from the room over the ocean was amazing. The breakfast delicious and the room and bathroom stylish and comfortable. Although it is a drive from Mossel Bay there is a free shuttle to take you in on request. However the beach at... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Classical View in Dana Bay. We frequently travel for work and a few of my colleagues suggested we try this place. We stayed there in July 2014 for one night. Pia is a lovely hostess – she even gave us one of her special breakfast recipes from Switzerland. Rooms are spacious, fit with a... More

We only stayed one night to break up our journey from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth but this was a beautiful place to stay. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with an amazing view down to the coast. The bathroom was also huge, with the usual toiletries and hairdryer provided. Just be aware that you will be staying in... More

Although a little off the beaten track, once found Classical View is a gem. This purpose built B&B sits high up overlooking the most wonderful view that you can possibly imagine. Pia, our host, could not do too enough for us. The rooms are spotless, large and airy with big balconies. Breakfast Is good. You have to drive five minutes... More

This is a lovely B&B in an upscale residential area 5 minutes from Mossel Bay. The view from the room is stunning. The rooms are a nice size with large bathrooms. The hot water bottles on the bed adds a homey touch and there is a space heater for a more efficient, if less romantic, heat. Breakfast was delicious with... More
