“Exquisite stay!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

What a marvellous place to stay! There is wonderful attention to detail and the room is equipped with anything you could possibly desire. The breakfast is delicious and we really enjoyed our stay tremendously. I think we will definitely be back as soon as we can!

Have stayed in many B&B's and this place ranks at the top. We booked in expecting a bare bones room as we had contracted for breakfast, but discovered that the room had a great extremely well equip kitchen. Very nice. Not only was the room excellent, but our hosts were terrific and took care of our every need. The area is very nice too and quite safe. If you are looking for an outstanding B&B in this area, Lilies & Leopards is THE place to go to.

We stayed one night at Karin's Lilies & Leopards and it was great. The view from the rooms over the ocean / beach is amazing, although it is a pity that there is no direct access to the beach. But with a short drive we reached the beach which was very beautiful.
The rooms are very clean and cozy and quite large, equipped with refrigerators and some even with a small kitchen (although we did not need it). The breakfast is excellent and Karin is an amazing host.

This little gem hidden in the small, sleepy town of Dana bay should not be missed when travelling the Garden Route. We spend two days here and were treated in the best, most hospitable way possible! Karin and her husband Jacques took great care of us, a group of seven people, giving us priceless tips on what to see and do - not to mention the delicious breakfast we were served each morning.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and they all have a magnificent ocean view! The guest house is only a 15 minute walk from the beach and a 10 minute drive from Mossel bay with a wide range of restaurants and shops. There is a free shuttle service from Lilies and Leopards to many of the restaurants in neighbouring Mossel Bay.

I would recommend everyone to make a stop - short or long - at the fantastic Lilies and Leopards B&B!

When you arrive here, you might find the exterior slightly underwhelming, but do not let this deter you. Karin, the gracious hostess, has managed to establish a guesthouse that really offers wonderful accommodation. There are various rooms, all well-appointed, well-stocked and lovely to stay in. Karin pays attention to detail and goes out of her way to make guests feel at home. In the mornings she spoils guests with a lovely spread. You will find cereals, nuts, jams, preserves, toasts, spreads and the usual hot breakfast fare. Coffee, tea, juices, fruits and cheeses are also included to ensure that you do not leave the breakfast table hungry. The guesthouse has a lovely setting, a brilliant view and very little traffic. It is truly a place where you can relax fully and completely. Karin is also very helpful when it comes to offering advice regarding the area. We paid R375 (US $ 35) per perpson sharing, while single rates are R500 ($ US 48) per person. I truly think this offers great value for money. God willing, we will be back for another visit, sonner rather than later.

We had a great stay at Lillies & Leopards. Karin was such a gracious host and we appreciated all her recommendations for the surrounding areas. The view of the ocean is stunning from both our balcony and the breakfast area. Her gardens were gorgeous and attracted a lot of birdlife. The breakfast was really good including homemade jams. We would highly recommend a stay at this guesthouse located in the quiet neighbourhood of Dana Bay.

We booked a room close to Mossel Bay to see a "band" called Sterling EQ....when we were about 2 hours into a 4 hour drive, we got a phone call telling us the show had been cancelled. Needless to say, we were not the happiest campers when we arrived at Lilies & Leopards. However, our anger and disappointment soon disappeared when we pulled up to the guesthouse and saw a lovely sign personally welcoming us to the guesthouse. Once inside, Karin took amazing care of us. We were shown to our rooms (we had booked 2...one for my hubby and I and one for my mom and daughter) and they did not disappoint. Each room had an en suite bathroom with everything we needed from shampoo/conditioner to hair dryers. Our towels were neatly folded on the bed and wrapped with a beautiful blue bow and adorned with a blue flower (we were in the "Blue Bell room). The view was just STUNNING!!!!! Our room also had a fridge, wine glasses and a corkscrew (which we put to good use) as well as tea and cofee and even fresh rusks!!! Karin included information in each room about places to eat/things to do in the area. The whole experience was just wonderful and it didn't stop with our rooms. The breakfast was wonderful, too! Fresh fruits, breads, yogurts, etc plus made to order hot breakfast. Karin made sure to introduce all of the guests to each other so we all felt welcome. If I am ever in the area again, I will most definitely book here again. To me, that is a sign of a great place!
