“Good People, Good Times!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We spent 7 days in Mossel Bay. It was a great jump off spot for sites on the eastern cape. The staff at the hotel were superior and very attentive to our needs. It was clean and the kitchen was well-equiped. Don't miss 5 o'clock soup & cherry! Hotel guests and staff are invited to gather a chat about the days happenings.

We spent five comfortable nights at Perna Perna, a well-run resort, ideally located not far from the Point. Both upstairs and downstairs had partial sea views. The unit was spacious, with beautiful wooden furnishings and well stocked with everything you would need. Management was regularly visible and a few minor maintenance requests were promptly dealt with by a helpful supervisor. A novel feature of this resort is a soup ‘n sherry offering for all guests each evening. Perna Perna is situated within easy striking distance of attractions such as beaches, restaurants, museums etc. We will certainly go back there. Our parking bay (No.6) was a tight fit.

Room Tip: Select unit with a parking bay that is easily accessible.

As there doesn’t seem to be a review of Perna Perna in Mossel Bay in South Africa we thought we would be the first to post one on Trip Advisor. Perna Perna is a small complex of 8 units, a mixture of 2 and 3 bedroomed accommodation. We stayed from March 8 to our departure on March 14, 2012. Even though there was only the 2 of us because of renovations on site we were given a 3 bedroomed unit. It was very comfortable with a double bedroom, twin bedded room and a double bunk room. Plus a full kitchen and a washing machine and tumble dryer. The furnishings were all of good quality, if not the newest, plus a flat screen TV and DVD player. 2 toilets and shower rooms as well. There is a small swimming pool but when we used it we were the only ones there. As it’s a small complex there is no onsite restaurant but this is not a problem as there a choice of restaurants within a short drive or walking distance. But if you walk be aware that although Perna Perna is only one block from the main street and its shops and restaurants, as it is in Upper Cross Street there is a hill to walk up on the way back! On our 1st morning we were given a talk on the Mossel Bay attractions and restaurants, some of which information was useful, some not. We had excellent meals at the Cafe Gannet in town and the Big Blu restaurant down by the rocky The Point and the sea, a short drive from Perna Perna. There is also good eating in the Point Hotel. Seafood is plentiful and good value in Mossel Bay so we had a lot of it. One place to avoid is the Africa Cafe, although it had been mentioned in the intrductory talk noone had been there. Don't go, it has terrible service and average food (when it finally arrived). There is also a small Pick And Pay supermarket in town and as we had a full kitchen in our unit we sometimes ate in. The supermarket was also a good place to get a picnic for a day, as well as the mini market on the main street. Things to do we would recommend are the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex, the boat trip to Seal Island and Jukani Wildlife Predator Park, The Point with its spectacular surf and rocks with safe bathing in between, and the Cape St Blaize lighthouse up on the cliff. Half an hour’s drive took us to George where we went on the Outeniqua Power Van trip up into the mountains, well worth it. Sad to say that the steam train that used to run from Mossel Bay to George and before to Knysna no longer runs, even though it might still be referred to in guide books. All in all Perna Perna is a good place to stay in Mossel Bay.
