The staff is friendly. Nonetheless, for being the number 1 hotel in a vacation get away a rating adjustment seems in order. Things to note:
- there is no character to the hotel
- they failed to inform us that it was under construction when we booked it
- neither breakfast not wifi (charged by device) were included on the rate
- the rate we contracted was significantly higher that the one they were advertising on a panel outside of the hotel
- the restaurants are very unimpressive
We were supposed to stay for two nights and we left one day early.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The luxurious 31-roomed Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is a graceful landmark, built in 1846, overlooking Santos Bay and harbour. Nestling on the Mossel Bay shoreline with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as a backdrop, the Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is singled out from other establishments. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is situated 5 min from Santos Beach. Take in the sea air whilst dining at Café Gannet, where you can sample local mussels, fresh fish and oysters or try the chefs daily specials. As sunset arrives, visit the Legendary Blue Oyster Cocktail Bar, with its own special ambience, pool deck and superb sea views, is the perfect place to kick off a decadent evening out or simply just to relax and enjoy the sunset with an aperitif before dinner. Added attractions are the close proximity to shopping facilities, the yacht club, harbour and north-facing, sun splashed beaches. As part of the museum complex, the Maritime, Local History and Shell Museum, as well as the Old Post Office Tree, are all within strolling distance. The new golf estate is 2km away and the airport a 20 minute drive. ... more less
