My wife and I stayed here for two nights in January 2012. The hotel is OK/fine. Its clean, and the management are friendly and helpful. You should really try and get a room on the top floor, both for the better views and also to avoid traffic noise from the street. Ground floor rooms have a balcony straight onto the road - so avoid these.
A few "issues " we had with the hotel:
- Mossel Bay itself is quite dreary (not the hotel's fault clearly, but just so you know).
- Hotel is up a steep hill, so views are great. But its on a fairly busy road.
- The pool is just a splash pool, and seems to be directly in front on someone's room! So hardly for wide use by guests
- Hotel has all hard tile floors, so sound carries: sounds of other guests, sounds of the breakfast set up, etc. (also, breakfast is from 7-9am only, which is a bit tough for those on vacation).
All in all, the hotel is fine as far as it goes, but is nothing special.
