“What a gem!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

I decided to prolong my stay in Mossel Bay and as such I booked into Linkside 2. One of the reasons I chose this particular bed and breakfast is because of the fantastic reviews it received. And I'm glad I did ... what a lovely little place. They might not have access to the beach but to be fair, the beach is a 3 minute drive away but what they do have are lovely rooms and a great breakfast. I honestly have to say with my hand on my heart that the best omelette I've ever had in my life was served to me this morning by Petra. Petra is just lovely as is her daughter Stephanie who I had the pleasure of meeting too. Her staff are just wonderful as well and they make you feel right at home. As already mentioned, the bedrooms are lovely - i happened to stay in the room overlooking the garden - and they are very tidy and clean too. I would definitely recommend this place to others ... thank you Petra for a wonderful stay. God bless.

We recently returned from the vacation of a lifetime in South Africa and Botswana. We spent the first two weeks on safaris in both countries, then finished the last two in South Africa traveling along the garden route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. Along that route, we stopped in Mossel Bay. We had no idea what to expect - it is not on the most traveled route, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were warm and friendly, the accommodations were very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. And the breakfast was awesome! Dave and Therese

Stayed one night en-route from Hermanus to Knysna. The room was exceptionally well furnished, obviously by someone with a flair for interior decoration. The attention to detail was amazing. It was a very comfortable stay, with Petra ensuring that we had all that we needed. Patio doors gave access to the garden where a table and chairs along with a couple of sunbeds were available for our personal use. Breakfast was very good and taken in a glass fronted room with a breathtaking view over Mossel Bay. I would recommend Linkside2 unreservedly.

Petra was a most charming and helpful host, serving a beautifully presented and innovative breakfast looking out over the bay. A little tricky to find the entrance off the street on first arrival, but once you know where it is there is no problem. Gated access to the car park provided additional security, always a good thing for the nervous first time visitor to South Africa (like us).

Room Tip: If possible try to get a first floor room - our ground floor room only had a view of an uninspiring...

We visited Mossel Bay for 5 days and were pleasantly surprised at the town and surrounding areas. The town is a small, so you close to everything. Linkside guesthouse is in an upmarket residential area and we felt very safe at all times. It was the best guesthouse we have stayed in before. We rented 2 rooms, and we were in our own self-contained unit. The rooms are modern, spacious, comfortable and very clean. Both rooms lead out on a patio and the garden. Breakfast is in the adjacent unit about 10 feet away, on the first floor. We enjoyed the view of the ocean, colorful fruit display and delicious breakfasts. Petra is a wonderful host and made sure we were well cared for.

Linkside guesthouse and Mossel Bay was a very pleasant surprise. We will be back.
