“Great View”
Reviewed June 19, 2008

We stayed here one night while travelling the garden route, lovely view of sea crashing on the rocks from the balcony. Staff very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall bill was very reasonable. Would pay a lot more in England for the view alone.

This hotel was a great stay! The hotel is built on the rocks and the balcony's with view towards the ocean is great.
The service is very good and the breakfast buffet was fantastic. They are more than helpful with luggage and concierge information. The rooms are spacious and are very modern.
Also is very close to good surfing!

This hotel is in the beautiful city of Mossel Bay. It is located right on the Indian Ocean with spectacular views from all rooms. We had a double room with both rooms being very large and clean.
The staff are very friendly & helpful. The dining room overlooks the ocean & all meals we had there(2 breakfasts & 1 supper) were excellant.
All rooms have very large balconies which makes ocean gazing very comfortable.
While we were there there was a city-wide water outage. While inconvenient not to be able to shower, the staff did all they could to make sure we were comfortable. It was a situation out of their control & I feel they handled it extremely well.
They have 2 computers which are available to guests free of charge which is a nice extra.
We were only there 2 nights but would have liked to stay longer.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone lucky enough to have time to spend in Mossel Bay

Nice hotel, incredible view of the sea and rocks! ... Make sure to ask for a room with a sea view (otherwise you could be facing a car park). Mossel Bay is definitely recommended for one night, one of the highlights along the Garden Route!

we ended up here after we had booked a room in a place down the road. I think it is called the manor Court hotel or something like that..... anyway it is so terrible that i can't find it on any websites! after my boyfriend got bitten by red ants in the bed we drove up to the point and it seemed to be the best hotel in the area. the rooms were over priced for what they were but the view and sound of the crashing sea made up for it. there is no air con only a miserable fan that just about stirs up the air. there is nothing to do in mossel bay despite the guide books raving about it....... it's a one night stop over on the garden route

What a great location this hotel enjoys!! As long as you're in one of the rooms with the sea view (and not rocks) you'll enjoy a comfortable, large and clean room.

We didn't eat in, the hotel was catering for a party of tourists - we could have joined in but we didn't really fancy it.

the staff were nice enough.

  • Liked — the location - being able to look out onto the ocean was fabulous

Overnighted at The Point as part of a tour group. Hotel itself is average but staff were very friendly and accomodating and everything was clean. Outstanding feature is the view. All rooms overlook craggy shore of Indian Ocean. Entry is at the top floor as the hotel is built into the rocks. Rooms are below. Nice-sized balcony from which to enjoy the waves crashing against the shore and the night sky while sipping wine (pick some up at one of the excellent wineries along the way). Sea air and sound of waves made for wonderful sleep. Far from town so only restaurant choices are the hotel or 2 restaurants about 5 mins. walk from the hotel (seafood or italian). Hotel had good and varied breakfast (as was our experience throughout South Africa). No internet access yet but manager let me use his computer.

  • Liked — view, quiet, staff
