My wife and I stayed at Lavender House in November 2016.

The best way that I can sum it up is to say that it offers the basics and no more. There are absolutely no frills or extras. There is no view, the beach and/or sea is a good drive away and the off-street parking is quite difficult to get to. This parking arrangement would also be fairly inconvenient if there was more than one guest using it as it is in what can best be described as an alley, which requires tandem parking - so the first one to park could have their vehicle "trapped".

The bed was quite "lumpy" and caused my wife's back injury to flare up again. There was no hot water (only lukewarm) in the evening when I went for a shower, and the one shower door was hanging on by a single castor wheel, and actually fell off when I closed it.

The breakfast, by contrast, was very good. The owner cooked it fresh and served it on pre-warmed plates. The "boerewors" (farm sausage) and the homemade jams were delicious.

In summary, the owner is very receptive to comments and suggestions, and even invited them from us on departure. Having said that, Lavender House needs some TLC and I would probably not be returning if I were to travel to Mossel Bay again.
