I arrived at the hotel around 17h00 last Thursday and was met by a very friendly and helpful lady - I think her name is Marianne. My room was big with an amazing sea view. Big bathroom and big shower with a good breakfast thrown in. R650 all included. Excellent value. As I was only there for one night and...

I have read some of the reviews.... WOW if you have champaign taste and beer money Edward Charles Manor is not for you. One only need a place to lay your head in the evening as you are out all day. The staff is awesome, Charlene you welcomed us a day early, accommodated us with a smile on your face....

Dirty linen and towels, ants in the bathroom, not good aircon. There were a lot of dogs everywhere and a bad smell in some of the rooms. Staff were not particularly service-minded. The pool was dirty and there was not much of a terrace outside. Breakfast did not feel fresh. Only stayed one night and will not return.

On a hill just a couple a minutes behind the town and marina. It has great views out to the bay plus super friendly staff. Building itself starting to look a little worn with scuff marks etc and there can be TV and snoring noise between rooms so bring ear pugs if noise sensitive.

If you're used to staying in 5 star hotels, this is not for you. However, if you're looking for comfortable, clean rooms with attentive staff and a hearty breakfast while exploring the Garden Route, Edward Charles Manor is right up your alley. Thanks to Charlene for allowing me an early check-in, great savory mince and for picking me up when...

Gorgeous views. Excellent value for money. Unfortunately they don't serve supper so guests have to find a restaurant in town about 500m from the manor. No problem right? I returned from supper only to find that the electronic key tag used to unlock the access door did not work. I called their contact no. several times but no answer. They...

Pleasant room but no soap in bathroom, no bulb in bedside light and kette not working. Disappointed as otherwise OK place to stay. It's the small things that make a difference WiFi password not provided on checkin.

We were just passing through Mossel Bay as part of our garden route drive from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. A quick look at trip advisor gave us a very good impression of this guest house, and they had a room at very short notice. I agree with some of the previous comments - friendly welcome, large room, beautiful views,...

The Edward Charles is well situated for anyone holidaying or working in Mossel Bay and has comfortable rooms with a very comfortable bed. When I booked, I asked for a room with a sea view, balcony and bar fridge and looked forward to getting such when checking in, however, the people using that room before me extended their stay with...

We had the pleasure at staying here in December 2014. The staff were very warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, including the bed! The breakfast was delicious, and served by friendly staff, who were coping with an unscheduled power outage. We had a balcony, from where we got a good view of Mossel Bay. We would certainly return.
