It was wunderful, from every room you see the ocean, may watch whales. Dinner cooked for hotel guests only, very familiar. Rooms are very clean, and just lovely. The location is perfect. A bit away from very busy Hermanus, quiet and just steps from the ocean.

Mosselberg is a beautiful, unique, designer hotel that is both luxurious, special, high quality yet also friendly and informal. We were immediately impressed by the distinctive, confident, smart, minimalist designer stamp across the whole establishment; it is a small hotel yet busy with a variety of visitors enjoying the quiet suburban location yet with spectacular views across the adjacent beach...

We were accommodated in the Olive Room. Very spacious and comfortable with good views of the mountain. Very limited view of the ocean. Staff were very helpful and courteous - especially Linda van Blommenstein who personally booked us on a whale watching boat trip. Breakfasts were very sumptuous and healthy. Will definitely recommend this hotel in future.
