We went off seasoned. Nice staff ! The room was cute and clean, but nothing fancy. Very well situated and nice interior garden.
The food was ok and there wasn’t much choices at the restaurant, but the included breakfast was AMAZING.

We stayed one night en route to Cape Town. Nice pool and inner court to relax after a long drive. Friendly welcome at reception and from staff in general.
Restaurant average but convenient to have on the property. Breakfast good enough with reasonable spread, although not much for vegetarians (something not unique to this facility). The room was comfortable. No aircon, but a fan is provided. All in all an economic stay. Must mention that it was quite noisy at night especially when staff departed via their transport after 10pm.

Hotel/villa guests are kept in a prison. Lapa available for rent, but no outside guests allowed. As South-Africans visiting our home town we are totally in disgust with Jan-Hendrik the 24 year old manager, for not allowing us to invite a few (3) close friends and close family to join in. For the past 4 years, we have been doing it, without any issues. The villas and hotel rooms are well over priced for what is available.
Some issues that was preventable, but yet, nothing was done about it:
* checking in: check-in time was 2pm, yet we could only check in at 5pm (due to the rooms not being cleaned yet, although we asked for a room asap (atleast at check-in time) as we were traveling for 36 hours non-stop from the middle-east. After sooooo many requests to get the room done, my dad, now 64 had to sleep on the restaurant sofa by the time it was 4:30pm.

* we rented 2 ‘villas’ btw bachelor flats for double the price as normal rooms, yet the fridge was not working and spilling water all over the room. We lost 3 days worth of food and beverages because of this fridge.

* the manager was no-where near the rooms, therefor walking into the room at 10pm, we realized we had no electricity, going to the reception, they expected us to move into a new room blaming the poor cleaning lady for this mess.

* basic amenities was not in place, hairdryers, plug sockets (not working), no pressure in showers and rooms that smells like sewage, including tiles lifting everywhere was not a pleasant experience for my home town. Disgusting place to bring overseas guests to.

*Lapa area is dirty with windows out and and entire hotel/lodge needs a paint job and maintenance done all over.

*Pathetic customer service at desk, since Jan-Hendrik was keeping open an entire hotel for the week, to accommodate a small tour-group at the end of the week.

* free wi-fi is apparently available, although we could not manage to access it at all. The one phone that managed to access wi-fi was blocked off whatsapp, as business owners from overseas, this is an important way of communication with clients and employees.

*public bathroom in lobby smells like a forgotten toilet in the middle of no-where.

All and all a poor poor poor hotel. For a person that travelled the world, this place is on the bottom of the list of places to stay at. Overpriced compared to 5 star places around the area where a guest have a bit more freedom.

Dear Marie9076

Thank you for your time to write your review, we appreciate when guests give their feedback on how their stay was with us.

Please accept my apology for not having a pleasant stay with us during your visit in South Africa and I take full responsibility for incidents that took place as mentioned. I am still very young and have a lot to learn about the responsibilities that accompanies a managerial position as well as the consequences of the decisions that I make.

Your grievances have been noted and taken up with our Maintenance Manager and Housekeeping Supervisors. Be assured that we will try our best to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible.

We do hope that you will visit Mossel Bay again and that your experience at our establishment will not affect your choice of destination for future trips.

Kind Regards
Jan-Hendrik
