On a second visit to Mosselberg in Jan '17 it did not disappoint. Linda and her accomplished staff, including her lovely daughter, Belinda, are fantastic, and treat you like old friends. Linda herself packed me a mobile breakfast on the night before I had to leave at 5am, for which I was very grateful as I munched away through Swellendam...

Our second visit and similar experience than last time. Office staff not the most friendly but service staff is good and attentive to details. Our room this time did not have much of a view but it was big enough, clean and comfortable. The sea facing rooms are clearly a better option. Breakfast is good. You can have dinner onsite...

It was wunderful, from every room you see the ocean, may watch whales. Dinner cooked for hotel guests only, very familiar. Rooms are very clean, and just lovely. The location is perfect. A bit away from very busy Hermanus, quiet and just steps from the ocean.
