The guest house has a fantastic location overlooking the Indian Ocean. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the public areas - garden, dining room, inside and outside sitting areas - make Classical View more than just a simple guest house. There is tremendous attention to detail throughout and it was an ideal stop for a few days on the Garden...

We really enjoyed our one night at Classical View. The room was big and comfortable whilst the breakfast was excellent. Pia also helped out with a dinner booking at Route 57 in Mossel Bay which was also a great option. Not far from Pinnacle Point Golf - which is a magnificent course and should be on every golfers "bucket" list

What a beautiful guest house and Pia made us so welcome. The rooms were clean,spacious and very comfortable with an amazing view over the sea. We would have stayed longer had we not had to continue our journey along the Garden Route. We would definitely like to return to explore the area more.

Classical View BnB was an amazing stay. Much much better than what it looks like in the pictures. With an amazing view of the ocean, the property is perfectly located and beautifully done. Super clean, easily accessible and a warm host, I'd strongly recommend Classical View to anyone who is looking for a stay around the Mossel Bay area, but...

We stayed here just one night but it was very nice a relaxing. Nice room with comfy bed and lovely pool area. The breakfast was also very tasty. Host was lovely and Yoshi the dog was great. Only downside is no restaurants close by but the rooms and views are worth the drive for dinner.

We have just returned from a tour of the Cape and the western end of the Garden Route and Classical View stood out as the best accommodation of our trip. Indeed, it would be hard not to rate it with 5 stars on all counts. The location is stunning, looking out over a small, but beautiful, garden then over lush...

From the moment you arrive Pia does everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The views from the room over the ocean was amazing. The breakfast delicious and the room and bathroom stylish and comfortable. Although it is a drive from Mossel Bay there is a free shuttle to take you in on request. However the beach at...

I really enjoyed my stay at Classical View in Dana Bay. We frequently travel for work and a few of my colleagues suggested we try this place. We stayed there in July 2014 for one night. Pia is a lovely hostess – she even gave us one of her special breakfast recipes from Switzerland. Rooms are spacious, fit with a...
