“Lovely stay, lovely town”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

At the very top of the hill is Bar T Nique. As we've discovered, Cape Town and Garden Route is hilly, but it does give cracking views. It does annoy me a bit to read reviews where people complain about hills, holiday in the Netherlands not SA if it bothers you that much! The owners were genuinely nice people from when we arrived and throughout the stay. Making sure we had all we needed and at breakfast, with their aprons on, cooking and preparing what we wanted to eat. The room was spacious and very clean with all we needed, the pool looked nice though we didn't use it but we did use the trust bar which a nice concept and saved going out again. Mossel bay it's self was very nice, very safe, and gives a good work out climbing the hills. I would recommend

We had booked a Luxury room, (to small) NO AIR-CONDITION!!!!!!!! We stayed unfortunately there during hot days, not much sleep during our stay. Good breakfast without the fruit salad that was to small and had two or three fruits in it. Called once at the wrong door and got told of by the male owner. Will not stay here again.

Excellent, friendly & spotless. Great place to stay to enjoy Mossel Bay.Breakfast was very good. Small pool area & sun loungers all added to our stay.Would definitely choose to stay here again if we are passing through.

The staff was very friendly but the rooms do need an AC as is was a bit hot. I did raise the issue with the staff the next morning and was told that they in the process of sorting it out.
The view over Mossel Bay was just spectacular.

Only the TV was weak, but with this beautiful I was doing well without.
The coastal path was very nice and the village charming.
Also the food in the proposed restaurant was very good.
We felt welcom.

A most wonderful weekend in a beautiful guesthouse, with friendly owners as well as staff. With the most spectacular view from our room, we hardly wanted to go out. We will surely return to Bar-t-nique!!!
