Mossel Bay is quiet and this accommodation was a bit run down and dated. We (a couple) stayed in a double en-suite. The staff were really friendly and it was pretty relaxed, but here are a few things to note.
For 390 ZAR, we had the following:
-Old rickety bed (squeaked loudly every time you moved in bed - even an inch - hard to fall asleep)
-Light was out when we arrived (however, they immediately replaced the bulb)
-Noisy, construction going on right near our window with the building of a lodge
-Old bathroom with dead cockroach
-Internet very slow in room, but excellent in main part.
Would I stay here again? No. Could it be good for a young backpacker who doesn't care about cleanliness and all the above? Yes.
Again, staff were nice - super relaxed - but the accommodation was just average (we've stayed in nicer for the same price or cheaper)
