We only stayed one night but I would have gladly stayed longer. We were upgraded to a three level suite. On the lowest level was a bedroom with a great king size bed and a large well appointed bathroom with a huge bath and separate shower. The bedroom had its own balcony. The entrance floor had a small kitchen and... More

This hotel overlooks Mossel Bay in the old part of the city, across from the Visitor Center. The staff is great, hotel is recommended if you want to be near the Garden Route and same time in a very relaxing location. Need a car to get around. We had room #10 and it was newly decorated with wonderful view.

This is a convenient, comfortable hotel. I stayed here because I was doing a long drive and wanted to break the journey along the way. My room was large and comfortable.

The Harbour Suite was pleasant enough. Would have been nice to have 2 bathrooms considering that the Room takes up 3 levels... Staff was very efficient and service was good. Restaurant food was excellent. Parking was outside but seemed safe enough. WIFI reception in room is terrible

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The luxurious 31-roomed Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is a graceful landmark, built in 1846, overlooking Santos Bay and harbour. Nestling on the Mossel Bay shoreline with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as a backdrop, the Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is singled out from other establishments. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is situated 5 min from Santos Beach. Take in the sea air whilst dining at Café Gannet, where you can sample local mussels, fresh fish and oysters or try the chefs daily specials. As sunset arrives, visit the Legendary Blue Oyster Cocktail Bar, with its own special ambience, pool deck and superb sea views, is the perfect place to kick off a decadent evening out or simply just to relax and enjoy the sunset with an aperitif before dinner. Added attractions are the close proximity to shopping facilities, the yacht club, harbour and north-facing, sun splashed beaches. As part of the museum complex, the Maritime, Local History and Shell Museum, as well as the Old Post Office Tree, are all within strolling distance. The new golf estate is 2km away and the airport a 20 minute drive. ... more   less
