We had a wonderful experience.
We saw whales everyday, twice a day, and very very close. We loved it.
The guesthouse is nice and they solved all the small problems we had.
They made us feel like home, but with an hotel service.
They even bought some European food just to make our breackfast even better.
Everybody there was more than kind and available.

Hello Toto

Thank you so much for your review! I am so sorry I was ill when you stayed with us and I could not meet you personally, but I am so glad the staff kept up the good work, even with me absent! Hope to meet you and your friends soon! I am glad to hear South-Africa did not disappoint.

Kind regards
Charlotte

The large house has lovely rooms with private balconies and big open common areas with a limited honesty bar and lounge area. There is a heated jacuzzi pool on the first floor level which shares the same wonderful sea views. Alternatively enjoy sundowners on the glorious wooden deck . I was travelling solo on business in Mosselbay for the week 8 to 15 September 2013 so reserved a standard room. A small microwave oven and kitchenette situated opposite the open-plan jacuzzi area allowed me to heat my take-out meal one evening.
The standard rooms are equipped with tea/coffee making facilities and a hair dryer.
C The View Guesthouse staff - Lolla and Alice were both so sweet - friendly and very helpful.
Breakfasts were superb and the view absolutely 'to die for'!

The only drawback was the cold weather which made the room rather chilly, with no means to warm it or the comfortable-but-cold bed.

Thank you so much Charlotte - the accommodation made a very trying and challenging week much more manageable.

Hello Gwendoline

Thank you so much for your informative review! It is so glad to hear that our service and guesthouse made a trying time for you easier. That is what the HOSPITALITY industry is suppose to be ad what w are striving for! To make your stay and life for that little while easier! I am so glad we succeeded. We are looking into buying electric blankets for next winter. I am so sorry the hot water bottles did not do the trick, but we are definitely going to remedy what was your only drawback.

Hope to see you again soon

Kind regards
Charlotte

We had a great experience at C the view - we stayed two nights and had the priveledge to eat a great homemade breakfast in the morning while the whales were only few metres away. Friendly service, great rooms! Perfectly situated between George and Mosselbaai!!

Hello Yolandi.

Your review is greatly appreciated! That is why I appreciate it so much, because then future guests can see that we are not lying about our amazing views, the whales, our service and breakfasts, AND that we are perfectly situated in the center of the garden route so from C the View you can take daytrips to Oudtshoorn, Knysna, George etc etc.

We can not wait to treat you again as our guests.

Kind regards
Charlotte

We spent three nights at C the view in August 2013 as part of a Garden Route holiday. The service was excellent and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. All rooms had awesome sea views and we could see the whales from our room. We will definitely stay here again, what a wonderful holiday!

We spent 3 nights at C the View, and I must say had a lovely relaxed time, at night would leave the sliding door open so that I could hear the waves. The view was great and every morning at about 8am, a whale would pass by The staff were very pleasant and went out of their way to make us feel welcome

Room Tip: All rooms are great and have sea views

Hello John

Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review, so that everyone can see we are telling the truth about seeing the whales even from your own room! It is one of the most fantastic experiences to see these large animals during whale season July-Oct.

We really hope to have you as our guests again soon!

Kind regards
Charlotte and team

In April my mother and I stayed the weekend... I loved the homely feel of this place and the friendliness of the staff.. Waking up to the sound of the waves was such a relaxing feeling... Breathtaking view... If you ever in Mossel Bay I suggest you booked into this Guest House, you won't be disappointed

Great place felt like our second home. Friendly and effecient staff always willing to assist. You dont want to leave. Food is excellent and the rooms spacious with a view to not be forgotten. Charlotte is an fnatastic host and we will go back and stay anytime again. We have stayed in may places but really felt at home and wont consider staying anywhere else in the future when we are in the area.
