“Enchanted house”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

This is a backpackers lodge, but also perfect for flashpackers (upgraded backpackers). Nice, helpful people, delicious breakfast, clean rooms, but the thing that impressed me the most was the house. This could easily be my house and my garden!

The house is great. There is plenty space in and around to enjoy. unfurtunately a football team was staying over here so there was a lot of noice (not only talking, but al the time yelling, shouting) untill about 5 o'clock in the morning and from 7 am it started al over again (because of a rugby match). The lady of the house didn't do anything about it. It is a pitty, because I think it is a lovely place, but we were there at the wrong time. She should have been honest and tell about the noice. Also the lady was not very helpfull and hospital. I will never return, but I'd like you to give the advise, just try it and ask if there is no football team or so staying.

This place may be an excellent backpackers and does have a very scenic communal area and garden but, as a guesthouse, is nothing special. Our room (a double) was very small but clean and overlooked the garden which was plesant but not if guests stay up late in the communal area drinking and talking - they could be heard through the closed window pretty clearly. Breakfast was available at a very steep R40 and was good enough. The location is not the best, not being in very close vacinity to anything decent. Neil (the guy running the place) was friendly enough without being particularly informative.

This boutique backpackers in an old town house has so much space and charicture,all the spaces are well kept it realy shows that the owners love the house, this place puts a holiday relaxacing spell on you as soon as you enter. The shady garden is a peaceful escape where you can watch cameleons or just relax in the secluded terraces overlooking the towns pretty park.
I have travelled alot around the garden route and stayed in alot of backpackers, all good standard, but the Park House Lodge is deffinately at the top of my list.
If you stay in Mossel bay dont stay ianywhere else!
