Park House Lodge was the nicest Backpackers we found - a Victorian house of slightly faded character, surrounded by beautiful gardens full of little gems - chameleons, friendly cats, huge koi carp and a beautiful little fountain in the courtyard. The staff, especially Lelani, were charming and helpful. There were a few ants but they were to be found in every other place we stayed in SA during our three weeks there - travellers should expect some local fauna!
Our entire Mossel Bay experience was the tops. Do go to the Kingfisher at the point rather than the expensive midtown alternative. The art co-operative workshop (near the TIC) is fantastic, affordable and fun too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This lodge, with its lush garden setting, is home away from home to travellers, tourists and holiday makers. It is situated at the historical pulse of central Mossel Bay; near picturesque beaches, harbour, restaurants and vibrant entertainment activities. Mossel Bay is the front door to the spellbinding beauty of the Garden Route. The magnificent scenery of indigenous forests hemmed by sunbleached beaches makes a journey of this region an unforgettable experience. The sight of the brilliantly blue Indian Ocean juxtaposed to luxurious expanses of regal greens strikes amazement and admiration from around the world ... more less
