“Very Friendly with reasonable rates and good facilities”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

Meike and Martin are your hosts and they could not be more friendly or welcoming.
The rooms were clean and spacious. Rates include breakfast and compared favourably with others in the area. We were given a welcoming cup of tea and shown where everything is. There is a fridge for use of the guests.
There are menus of local restaurants available so that you can choose where you would like to eat.
The only downside was that there are no coffee/tea making facilities in the room - and whilst you are welcome to go through and make some at any time, that early morning cup of coffee means you have to get dressed to walk through the breakfast area to access the the kitchen.

Meike and Martin are running the Avenues Guest House in Mosselbay and to be honest this was one of the best places I've stayed at during my Garden Route tour this January!
You feel honestly that this is a home away from home without it being over the top in any way, shape or form.
There's a brilliant walk way from the B&B along the coastal line to the beach front, but beware: it's not a walk for the faint hearted. A shuttle service will take you back from most of the restaurants however you need to make them aware that you're going back to Avenues.
Breakfast also was brilliant, as was the overall state of the rooms, beds, bathrooms. There's a lovely reasonably sized pool and nice seating area in the garden. Overall a brilliant experience and a must stay place!

We stayed one night at this guesthouse en were welcomed in a most friendly way.
The rooms were inviting en spotlessly clean and situated around a patio.
There was also a smimming pool big enough to practice some strokes.
We got all the required information about Mosselbay and surrounding area and were helped with the finding of a good restaurant and the booking of the next guesthouse.
To be recommended!

We stayed just for one night at Avenues Guesthouse but had enough time to enjoy it. The place is charming, quiet and really well located, close to the centric spots. The room was clean, comfortable and had a nice patio. We were served a wonderful breakfast in a dinning room with views to the pool. Overall, it was a nice experience and we'd totally recommend it!

The Avenues is immaculately clean with very helpful and friendly owners who made me feel really welcome. I had a very good night's sleep and the breakfast they served me was great. I only stayed at The Avenues for one day but I made use of the swimming pool and also the free shuttle service which drops you back at the Avenues after you've eaten at certain restaurants. The decor at The Avenues is lovely and so is the garden. The only down side is that it is quite a long way from the beach and all the main shops/restaurants, but the free shuttle service, the very reasonable cost of the rooms and the extremely high standard of the guest house more than makes up for this. I'm very glad I chose to stay here.

The "Avenues" was definitely a highlight on our trip along the Garden Route. While Martin gave us very useful advice which places are worth seeing (and which ones to skip...), Meike pampered us with custom-tailored breakfasts and printouts of the eather forecasts for the following days. Lazily hangig out at their pool was exactly, what we needed after a few days of pretty intense travelling. A grain of salt is the fact that Avenues has no vista onto the Mossel Bay. However, if that was the case, this B&B would obviously need to charge their guests considerably more. If you are after excellent service at affordable rates this is the place to go.
