The service was friendly and the breakfast was good. We also enjoyed with our little boy the direct access to the clean beach nearby from the hotel. However, the room did not really suit our taste (bare and modern but with a certain lack of atmosphere and warmth) and there was a bit of an issue with the multiplicity of doors and locks to open for moving across the hotel (by the way, the picture of the swimming pool is a bit deceptive, as it is a plunge pool for one or two persons sitting). We have to confess that our appreciation of the hotel was however negatively influenced by the surroundings (Mossel Bay and the Garden Route in general). To us, the Garden Route did not appear as the much-publicised breathtaking stretch of road strolling along the ocean. As for the part that we covered (Mossel Bay - Wilderness), it was rather a highway stuck between shopping malls and oil refineries offering at times a view of the ocean. This applies also to the surroundings of the hotel reviewed hereby.
