This is an excellent B & B. Stayed in the Sailfish Room, which from the pictures had the best view. And the pictures were not lying! I was greeted by both Noel and Alida when I arrived and were shown the room. I was quite hungry, and they recommended a nice restaurant 10 minutes by foot from their place (I could also have taken the car, but wanted a quick walk). I had sushi at the restautant and it was very nice. Noel had also phoned the restaurant so that I was expected there. A very nice gesture!
My main purpose for visiting Mossel Bay was the St Blaize Trail. Because I arrived after the tourist office had closed I was not sure on how to book transport to one end of the trail, but while talking to Alida she said that they could take me. Very nice to not have to think about logistics, but rather the hike.
Breakfast was served when I wanted it. Started with fresh berries and pancake and after that english breakfast. The food was excellent, and a perfect energy load up before walking the trail. Alida also made me lunch which I ate on the hike. I also borrowed a walking stick, and had the car and all my luggage including valuables safely stored.
I only had a quick stop over in Mossel Bay, but I wish I had stayed longer as both the food, place and service from Alida, Noel and the other people at Aqua Marina were astonishing.
