The view and room is very nice. For 1100 a night no aircon rude room service and having to walk a stiff end bags and all from parking to where you sleeping makes it pretty average. I think you can find similar views for half the price. Waited about 40 minutes for a burger and beer via room service.

We stopped over in Mossel Bay for one night and ended up staying three! Although the rooms are a little dated, the view more than makes up for it. Beautiful vistas of the open ocean and all the activity below on the sweeping beaches. The staff and mangeress were very helpful and the breakfast buffet was great - very generous...

Room was not prepared on time, even the TV remote was missing!, No dustbin in room or Info. pack, Access cards worked intermittently! No aircon!!!!! Unbelievable! Only a floor fan. Beds most uncomfortable. Felt like sponge matresses and no...

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years and am aware of their recent financial troubles. It does seem as though the new owners are getting this magnificently positioned hotel back on its feet. Arriving in the large rather grand lobby was somewhat eerie as it was quiet with very few guests around and hardly...
