Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We stayed at African Oceans on our last trip to South Africa in 2007. It was the first Guest house to go on to our itenary for this years trip.
Best breakfast in the Garden route and outstanding accomodation which made for a perfect stay. Highly recommended.

Found this place by chance looking for an overnight stop in or around Mosselbaai. It was top rate. Slightly out of town (but an easy and short drive in), on the beach with cracking views, the rooms (we had the suite, which suited the family perfectly) were fantastic. Big lounge, kitchen area, terrace with braai, upstairs bedroom. Breakfast was excellent in dining room overlooking the beach. even had a garage space for the car. all very secure. Best place we stayed in during the 2 week trip up and down the coast.

Room Tip: we had the suite which for a family requiring 2 bedrooms was just right.

Picked this for a 1 night 'transit' stay but wished that we'd been staying longer. Faultless accommodation and a massive duplex flat, fully kitted out with everything that you could need including wine and beer. Breakfast was sumptuous and the quality of overall fixtures, fittings and hospitality was brilliant.

African Oceans Manor definitely exceeded our expectations. The Manor is lovely and our room was fabulous - it was large, clean and inviting with a kitchenette, a beautiful big ensuite and a balcony looking straight out to the Ocean. We had a pleasant breakfast looking out to the pool and the Ocean. Off-street, secure parking is provided and staff are friendly and obliging, although sometimes difficult to find when we had questions as it was Winter time and they seemed to have been operating with less staff than usual.
The hotel provides dinner recommendations but keep in mind you will need to drive to any of these lovely options as the hotel is located 10minutes from the Town Centre and The Point. This suited us as it provided us with a relaxing stay where we could walk on the beach and drive into town when we felt like it.
Affordable and beautiful - African Oceans Manor on the Beach was a prefect place to start our Road trip along the Garden Route.

We stayed @ African Oceans Manor on the beach for one night during June 2012 and it was an absolutely amazing experience!
The staff is highly competent and professional. The food was excellent and the accommodation was something out of this world.
Every little detail was thought of and I will go back again and again!

Thank you Soekie!

An overall pleasant stay in a huge house offering privacy when you need it. The staff are excellent, accommodating, kind and very willing. We opted for the Bed and Breakfast option, very delicious and filling.

Five star accommodation, service & menus, & GREAT view. We stayed in April 2012, only confirmed 24hrs before we arrived but we were still accommodated. The wedding we were attending was extended to two days. The friendly staff extended our stay hassle free, even thou it was a long weekend. Professional & lovely staff members, kitchen to garden to admin staff they're ALL friendly. The food is to die for, breakfast keeps you full the whole day. What you see is what you get !!! We're definitely going back !!!

Room Tip: Suite 8 is big & spacious, very quite
