Not a very big hotel but very cozy and friendly. The rooms at the "new area" of the hotel are so nice, with a design decoration. Love it! Food and people excellent. Near the waterfront. Free wi-fi (that's important nowadays). Dont forget to send a postcard!

I stay mostly in Protea Hotels for business through the Southern Cape. The Protea Hotel in Mosselbay is probably the best. I stayed in room 1 which is spacious with clean fresh decor and amazing bedding. Traveling for business is always difficult when it comes to dinner as I don't like dinning alone. However the Restuarant linked to this hotel...

We arrived in Mossel Bay in the pouring rain, and it poured with rain most of the time we were there- perhaps that affected our view of the place. The room we had was pretty good, quite long and thin which meant it was not easy to get around the bed. The room decor was sort of nightclub 90s chic....

Incredible setting, view and service! Food was incredible - both breakfast and dinner. Room with a view, and incredible service! Had the perfect room with a large tub for me and hubby, and our 9-year old was in the loft, which he loved! Close to museums and activities. Would strongly recommend!!!!

This hotel overlooks Mossel Bay in the old part of the city, across from the Visitor Center. The staff is great, hotel is recommended if you want to be near the Garden Route and same time in a very relaxing location. Need a car to get around.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The luxurious 31-roomed Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is a graceful landmark, built in 1846, overlooking Santos Bay and harbour. Nestling on the Mossel Bay shoreline with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as a backdrop, the Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is singled out from other establishments. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is situated 5 min from Santos Beach. Take in the sea air whilst dining at Café Gannet, where you can sample local mussels, fresh fish and oysters or try the chefs daily specials. As sunset arrives, visit the Legendary Blue Oyster Cocktail Bar, with its own special ambience, pool deck and superb sea views, is the perfect place to kick off a decadent evening out or simply just to relax and enjoy the sunset with an aperitif before dinner. Added attractions are the close proximity to shopping facilities, the yacht club, harbour and north-facing, sun splashed beaches. As part of the museum complex, the Maritime, Local History and Shell Museum, as well as the Old Post Office Tree, are all within strolling distance. The new golf estate is 2km away and the airport a 20 minute drive. ... more   less
