Travellers' Choice
The luxurious 38-roomed Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is a graceful landmark, built in 1846, overlooking Santos Bay and the harbor. 20 min drive to the airport and halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. 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. The stone walls and Mediterranean-style out-buildings belie the fact that the main building is one of the oldest in Mossel Bay and forms part of the Dias Museum Complex. Previously The Old Post Office Tree Manor Hotel, the Protea Hotel Mossel Bay, situated off Santos beach, could best be described as a hotel complex. It comprises of a breakfast patio with sea view, the Cafe Gannet Seafood Restaurant - "Mossel Bay's Seafood House", overlooking the Bay and Outeniqua Mountains. The Blue Oyster cocktail bar, adjacent to the pool, overlooks Santos Bay.

Nice view of harbor. Easy walk to dock area with restaurants and access to beach. Supermarket is across the road. Parking outside the hotel is fine and safe. Excellent breakfast with outdoors if you like.

The staff was simply put, great. Very friendly and strait to the point. The rooms are modern, well lit and roomy. The presidential suite is on two levels but there are balconies on both levels. The garden and hotel grounds are neatly kept and lounge seats are available for informal meetings or to catch up with event of the day with friends. The bathroom is very roomy and spotless. This really makes for a pleasant stay.

Love this 2 bedroom unit, fully self catered! Luxury, beauty, view. 2nd stay. Can’t wait to go back. Super close to all amenities, beach, supermarkets, museums, super friendly staff at reception. Well kept gardens, overlook the swimming pool, Oyster Bar, Gannet Restaurant, and for the lazy nights, room services.

The hotel is nicely located with restaurants and shop in its vicinity and has great bay and harbour views. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed on 2 floors with balconies and large bathrooms. There is a small pantry in the entry hall. Public areas are tastefully furnished and decorated. All staff is super friendly and helpful. The in- and outdoor bar by the small pool is great and very popular. The poolarea has great views of the bay. The onsite restaurant is great for fish and packed with locals and guests alike. Breakfast is very good. Protea Mossel Bay is a very good option to stay on your way along the Garden Route-
