Lovely airy comfortable room with panoramic view over the bay. Breakfast average but adequate. As a B&B one would expect to meet and have contact with the owner/hosts.There appeared to be different casual staff. No real interaction which one may expect in a small town.

I was heading along the Garden Route after a business trip and had to find accommodation late on a Sunday afternoon. Phoned a few places and ended up here. A warm welcome, comfortable room, working wi-fi, good location. Not much to complain about. Breakfast could be more substantial but it was adequate. I do think they need somebody on site...

If you come to Mossel Bay this Guest House is a must for accommodation! Friendly efficient service, the most amazing view over the ocean and breakfast included. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Beautiful gardens, swimming pool and an excellent place to take a well deserved break - this is what I experienced during my stay!

Big bathroom and big shower with a good breakfast thrown in. R650 all included. Excellent value. As I was only there for one night and...

I have read some of the reviews.... WOW if you have champaign taste and beer money Edward Charles Manor is not for you. One only need a place to lay your head in the evening as you are out all day. The staff is awesome, Charlene you welcomed us a day early, accommodated us with a smile on your face....

Dirty linen and towels, ants in the bathroom, not good aircon. There were a lot of dogs everywhere and a bad smell in some of the rooms. Staff were not particularly service-minded. The pool was dirty and there was not much of a terrace outside. Breakfast did not feel fresh. Only stayed one night and will not return.

On a hill just a couple a minutes behind the town and marina. It has great views out to the bay plus super friendly staff. Building itself starting to look a little worn with scuff marks etc and there can be TV and snoring noise between rooms so bring ear pugs if noise sensitive.

If you're used to staying in 5 star hotels, this is not for you. However, if you're looking for comfortable, clean rooms with attentive staff and a hearty breakfast while exploring the Garden Route, Edward Charles Manor is right up your alley. Thanks to Charlene for allowing me an early check-in, great savory mince and for picking me up when...

Gorgeous views. Excellent value for money. Unfortunately they don't serve supper so guests have to find a restaurant in town about 500m from the manor. No problem right? I returned from supper only to find that the electronic key tag used to unlock the access door did not work. I called their contact no. several times but no answer. They...
