I thoroughly recommend visiting the Blue Whale Lodge in Mossel Bay, if you are in the area. For me, a home from home and I will always stop there if I am in the area. Run by hosts Mariki and Renier, you are in for a great welcome, a comfy stay and tasty breakfasts. A lovely older building with character filled rooms. No request too much. You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. Ideally suited to the Point, town and local areas, with plenty of places to visit in the further surrounds. Plenty of eating places, plus Mariki and Renier are able to assist with what to do, see and where to go. Mossel Bay has boomed as a town and with the lovely Blue Whale Lodge there… it makes a good stop off if travelling or for longer as a holiday. As I return each time, I bump into people also returning. Happiness is at the Blue Whale Lodge! Thank you Mariki and Renier. I look forward to my next visit to South Africa and your lovely guest house. I appreciate having the room I like each time. Abalone with the super front view to the sea. Thank you for seeing to me when I was so poorly. You saved my trip.

We booked this stopover to break our drive home from our holiday and were pleasantly surprised. Our apartment had all we needed, and was walking distance to the Mossel Bay beaches and restaurants. The breakfast was excellent!

We had a lovely time at the lodge, the owners are so welcoming and accomodating, they really made us feel at home. Close to town and the beach and a view of the sea. Very comfortable rooms and value for money.

This place was great. We just stayed for one night, but the owners of the house are so lovely. It's an old house but it hasn't lost its charm. It also was pretty cheap to stay. I highly recommend this place!
