“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Nice guest house, we had a good breakfast with lovely bay view. The host was very friendly and give good advise, there is a nice parrot too. If you plan to stay in Mossel Bay it's definitely the right place.

Stayed here for one night travelling on the garden route. The main point of the hotel was the stunning view across the bay.

The staff were helpful and the rooms were comfortable.

The centre of town is very close making it an easy walk to eat out in the evening.

Perfect room with a nice seaview. The Service was very good and the breakfest excellent. The staff is very friendly. Mossel bay is a nice city with good restaurants and nice beaches. The City is very safe.

Very nice, comfortable stay, wonderful people and service and a very convenient location.

Rooms could do with a fan or aircon though.

It was more than I needed for my one night business stay and I will stay there again.

The bar is very nice, good view and friendly people.
Room was clean and there is a pool as well. Unfortunately we just spent one night, we could have stayed much longer, but will definitely book againg there.

At the very top of the hill is Bar T Nique. As we've discovered, Cape Town and Garden Route is hilly, but it does give cracking views. It does annoy me a bit to read reviews where people complain about hills, holiday in the Netherlands not SA if it bothers you that much! The owners were genuinely nice people from when we arrived and throughout the stay. Making sure we had all we needed and at breakfast, with their aprons on, cooking and preparing what we wanted to eat. The room was spacious and very clean with all we needed, the pool looked nice though we didn't use it but we did use the trust bar which a nice concept and saved going out again. Mossel bay it's self was very nice, very safe, and gives a good work out climbing the hills. I would recommend
