Our Grade 7 school tour was booked in at Protea Hotel Mossel Bay - what a wonderful experience! We (the children - x24), were received and treated from the minute we walked in! The rooms were fantastic - clean and comfortable - the children kept on saying they are staying in a "Penthouse" :)!
A special word of thanks to the chef for an outstanding dinner and breakfast! We will certainly be back!
We can not thank you enough for the wonderful manner in which you treated our children.
Thanks

Dear Lynn B
WOW, thank you for your lovely comments and taking the time to post them on TripAdvisor. It was fun having you all. So sweet the comment of the Harbor Suite– “Penthouse”. Our self-catering Harbor Suites are very spacious being on 3 levels and the 2 balconies, glad they enjoyed this. Our chef is very proud of your compliments – as they strive to exceed guests’ expectations. Best wishes from us all at the hotel to all of you & the children. Live life slowly…

Lovely spacious room, really friendly and helpful personnel plus easy walking distance to town and the harbour. Great food at The Gannet restaurant next door - had a very mild vegetarian curry and rice which was excellent and good value, just one suggestion is that they need to throw in some small chunks of potato to really finish it off.

Room Tip: 19 is a good room at this Protea Hotel.

Dear Dave T
Thank you for your comments and posting them on TripAdvisor. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay does have a great location being centrally located. Our restaurant, the Café Gannet is known as Mossel Bay’s Seafood House and very popular amongst the locals – I will definitely pass on your suggestion to the chef. Look forward to welcoming you back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The rooms were well equipped, nice views, the restaurant served good food and breakfast. The Manager as well as Deniesha were fantastic, so helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay most enjoyable! We will definitely be back again. The only problem we experienced was the Wi-fi that wasnt working and a little painful.

Room Tip: Self-catering apartments are amazing and the baths are really romantic and enjoyable!

Dear Jo-Ann D
Thank you for your great comments and taking the time to post them on TripAdvisor! Glad that you’ve enjoyed your stay in our Self-catering Harbor Suites. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay - a 5minute walk to the Blue Flag beach Santos Beach & views over the Outeniqua Mountain, has a great location being the perfect stop from which to explore the Garden Route, half-way between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. My sincere apologies for the problem you’ve experienced with the WI-FI, this has been attended to. Hope to welcoming you back soon….live life slowly.

We stayed over for one night. The location is excellent bad the hotel is very nice. Our room was large however certain aspects need upgrading. The bathrooms, particularly the doors need attention. As do the sliding windows in the room. Our room was close to the restaurant and kids were running outside our door and screaming at 9 pm. Our wifi also didn't connect at all.

Short stay here before the garden route gets going. Very special hotel and fabulous staff, each more friendly than the next. My kids enjoyed the pool and jumping castle. Great man-size breakfasts. Bomus to be able to walk through the museum to the beach

Dear GautengLad
Thank you for your lovely comments and posting them on TripAdvisor. With Mossel Bay being half-way between Cape Town & Port Elizabeth, Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is the “perfect” spot from which you can explore the rest of the Garden Route. Situated next to the Diaz Museum, we offer all our GUESTS complimentary entrance tickets - glad you’ve enjoyed the 5 minute stroll to the beach. A BIG thank you from our TEAM for your compliments. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.
