“5 star service, right by the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

This was our third visit and it did not disappoint. Suite 7 is very spacious with wonderful views of the sea (even if it did rain on our 3rd day). Delightful breakfasts (including a different mystery starter each day) in wonderful surroundings. Very helpful staff and you certainly feel you get 5* service and attention. We left feeling very relaxed and already planning our next visit.

We stayed here is December 2013 - Sorry for the late review! This is a gorgeous place with a fantastic location. The rooms were amazing and every need was catered for. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if we visited Mossel Bay. Particularly nice touches were the "amuse bouche" at breakfast - a unique nice touch, to add to an already excellent breakfast experience (loved the eggs benedict!) and the use of a garage for our car - bonus! A nice quiet, safe haven in which to relax - thank you!

Room Tip: The Presidential Suite really does make you feel like a president!

Gorgeous appartments at a gorgeous location with a staff that suits both !

Breakfast is the same of course.

The tiny swimming pool is more then compensated by the sea water temperature !

One shouldn't miss the Diaz museum in Mossel Bay.

The only problem we had with this hotel was to get a booking due to the heavy demand! We did persevere and succeed and it was certainly worth the effort. The lowest rating we could give this hotel is "superb". The internal presentation of the hotel is of the highest quality whether that be in the common areas - breakfast room, lounge or in the individual suites. We stayed in two different suites and while they were quite different in presentation and end result was the same - exceptional. The breakfast is special and the "staff" are very friendly.
The hotel is in a quiet location with some steps down to the clean, quiet and empty beach. What an experience.

The hotel view is unbelievable.
The hotel location in a very quiet neighborhood and the view is something deferent.
The room is so big and have outstanding bathroom with two sections. The room equipped with kitchen and dining table as well as setting area. The breakfast is special and very good. The hotel is very safe.

This small guest house should not be missed. Large rooms, great views and all room amenities beautifully thought out. The only down side is a 30 minute drive to Mosel Bay. The upside is that it's on just a beautiful beach. Highly recommended.

Dear Bill, thank you for the great review and that you highly recommend us.
The traffic in December holidays can be quite hectic and the normal 15 min drive then takes longer, but luckily for most of the year it is a easy drive.
Please come back for another visit.
