We enjoyed our stay in Mossel Bay. Mainly because of the friendly welcome arriving at the hotel. The stuff was more than friendly and the atmosphere made us feel at home at once. Travelling with our little daugther (1,5 years) was very easy since she was friends with all of the stuff. We can also recommend the Back Pack Shak...

We were a bit apprehensive when driving there as it is not situated in the "prime area". But we were very happy we booked in. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, the staff is super friendly, and the breakfast buffet, everything prepared on the coals, was something else! We will definitely go back there.

When we first arrived at the hotel, we felt rather uneasy at the general location and appearance of the hotel set inside high perimeter walls and a sliding security access gate to the secure parking area. However, we decided to drive in and check the room and general atmosphere of the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly and commented...

Everything was disgusting and dirty. That room urgently needs a makeover. As for the reception, they need a better system to work on. It took a lady approx 20 min to confirm our booking. I not recommend anyone to stay in room 217
