Cape Town, South Africa
Reviewed 9 May 2016

The staff were fantastic and have a hard time trying to make things right Eg. No wifi, paid secure parking, holes in sheets - extremely expensive breakfast! Not good value for money! We chose the Harbour suite which was lovely but the location of the suite did not allow for efficient wifi.

Very friendly and welcoming staff with a room upgrade offering very comfortable accommodation for a 1 night stay.

We stayed here three nights, having been through Mossel Bay a couple of times in the past. It's nice and central, with a good breakfast. The restaurant can get booked up for dinner in the evening, so consider booking if you're eating in. The food is excellent, but we didn't have a bad meal the whole time in Mossel Bay....

Great welcome with port or sherry! We were shown to a studio, which had a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom was down a flight of stairs with no handrail so we had to take care when carrying our luggage downstairs. Kitchen was well-equipped if staying there for a few days. Would not recommend for young children...

Very nice suite for all of us, very good service. The structure is a bit old but well maintained. Very close to the centre, but you do not need this to eat out; a very good restaurant is just there and simply gorgeous. The playground area is very nice as well.

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
