My wife and myself had a wonderful time at Protea Hotel in Mossel Bay. The friendly staff went out of their way to help and make you feel welcome. We loved the mixture of the old and modern décor. This place is highly recommended.

Had heard mixed reviews about Mossell Bay as a place but this hotel was fab. It has really good security and an onsite cocktail bar and restaurant overlooking the sea. Breakfast was excellent with food cooked to order. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. A great garden route stop over.

We spent 2 days in Mossel Bay because of our cage diving with sharks... This is a lovely hotel! The reception is very friendly and we had an amazing dinner at the restaurant. Rooms are modern and super clean! Extra Tip: Visit the TownshipAngels workshop - just across the street.

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
