African Oceans Manor on the Beach

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed here while driving the garden route in March this year. The hotel was very clean, very comfortable and extremely welcoming. The setting is fabulous with access to the beach from the terrace. When we were there the stunning beach was totally empty. We had a great meal in town and a friendly local cab provided by the hotel took us and picked us up. We wished we could have stayed an extra day. Well done to the team who manage the hotel!!!

If you fancy being in a 'film se't with the most glamorous of rooms, suite 5 is the one for you. Every detail has been expertly thought out - even the unusual angles in the rooms. We had dinner platters served in the suite which was very good. There was only turndown on our first night (we stayed for two) which included complimentary mineral water. This was the only free water - apart from tap - all other guesthouses/hotels we have stayed at have a supply of complimentary water. We also had to ask twice for the Nespresso coffee capsules to be renewed. Breakfast was very good and the service there was also very good.

Room Tip: Suite 5 is a must. Unfortunately if it is windy you can't open the balcony doors as it blows st...

African Manor was the last point of stay on our Honey Moon itinerary. Of all the places we stayed, this one was truly the cherry on the cake.

The personal service, excellent food, attention to detail and the terrific view of the beaches and sea it offered just sums up to one Awesome Experience!

I would really recommend it to all people to have this amazing experience with them. Guests are really pampered!

Just one thing, do stay there as much as you can. It is a luxury not to be missed. Our only gripe was we could not spend more days there as we had to catch the flight the next day.

But one thing is sure, we will be returning!

Room Tip: Take the top floor rooms facing the sea as they offer the BEST Views

We stayed for 3 nights in Suite 4 which had beautiful views from the balcony to the beach and sea. We have just returned from 7 weeks touring South Africa and rate this as the best accommodation out of the 16 hotels we stayed in, they had everything right. This hotel rightly deserves the comments made in the other reviews. If you're going to Mossel Bay this is the place to stay.

This must be one of the most beautiful guest houses I've ever stayed in, rooms were immaculate and luxury, service was amazing and the view was breath taking! Good value for money and well worth a visit! I will be using this guest house for my business travels every month as it suites my budget plus it makes my trip feel like a holiday experience which makes me look forward to my trip every month! Thank You African Oceans!!!!

Room Tip: Room 4 was nice and quiet with an awesome view of the ocean.

The staff were fantastic, the views across the beach and into the mountains were wonderful, the breakfasts were superb, Mossel Bay has some great restaurants (try 'Route 57' and 'The Gannet'), walks on the beach and swimming in the bay were delightful.

We were worried when some fellow travellers had earlier commented that Mossel Bay was 'industrial' with a large gas refinery - and we were initially dissappoointed when the drive to the hotel from the N2 passed directly behind this. However ignore these comments - Mossel Bay is great, the town itself has interesting museums and sights - and the manor is not affected at all by the refinery.

Just go see for yourself!

Room Tip: Room 4 - great sea view

This is a luxurious property right on the beach (though about 7km from the centre of town). It has every amenity you could need: private garage parking, air con, fan, fully stocked fridge in room (with good prices for the wine), luxury toiletries, bathrobes, complementary port!! The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is sumptuous - with a starter! (we were offered a pancake stuffed with stewed apple and dried fruit - delicious), fruit, cereal, yogurt etc. and then a menu for a cooked or continental breakfast. We didn't have lunch that day. Staff were helpful and courteous. Unfortunately we were only booked for one night - I would stay for at least 5 on next visit.

Room Tip: We got the last room on the night - the standard room 9, a two bedroom suite. Apparently the others...
