“A lovely place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2011

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.

A lovely Guest House in very safe residential area. Free evening shuttle service from restaurants back to Guest House in evening is a great idea. Hosts were most helpful, ensuring we had our day planned and suggested additional visit which fitted in well with what we had chosen to do. Even lent us a map! Breakfast was excellent, nothing too much trouble to prepare.

Will definitely go back.

We phoned B&Bs in Mossel Bay at random late in the afternoon looking for accommodation for 6 people for one night. The price was resonable and there was place for us. When we arrived Meike invited us to inspect the rooms first before we made a decision. The rooms were impeccable, clean and with all the amenities we needed. We were offered a welcome cup of coffee on arrival and were shown a large well-appointed area where we could relax. Our perishables were stored in the insitution's fridges for us. An ample and tasty breakfast was included and was prepared and served by the owners themselves. The owners insisted on seeing us off in the morning. We recommend Avenues without any hesitation. Avenues lives up to its motto: cleanliness, friendliness and service. You could not ask for more and at a reasonable rate too.

We stayed one night in Avenues Guesthouse and were sorry that it was not for longer. The welcome we received, after a long journey and very early morning was wonderful, everything that you could wish for. It is in a great location and the ratings above are proof of what super hosts Meike and Martin are, running The Avenues in an easy, friendly and unpretentious way, but also making sure that you have everything that you should need. We were very impressed and glad to have met them, so will go back when we are next in the area and will happily recommend it to everybody.

We had a wonderful stay at The Avenues. Arriving late, the hosts were more than accommodating and were very hospitable to our needs. The rooms were incredibly private and well kept. We would recommend The Avenues to anyone who is looking for an affordable place to stay in a gorgeous little town, with fantastic hosts.

We stayed here on our way to and from Cape Town during the World Cup and found this to be an excellent place to stay. Meike and Martin were very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room, great breakfast and all for a very reasonable price.
Apologies for 'killing the fridge'!!

If we ever return to Mossel Bay then this would be our first choice of where to stay.
