Stopped off for one night on our way east along the coast from Cape Town. The hotel itself is fine. They have done a good job restoring an old building, with lots of additional modern rooms out the back. The restaurant within the hotel is the #1 restaurant in the town, so it gets busy. The town itself however is...

Gorgeous hotel and the staff were so so welcoming and kind. Very safe area and the restaurants were gorgeous. Our suite was perfect which over looked the beach. There are a couple of really nice bars along the waterfront. Raging now that I didn't book a shark cage experience - maybe next time

We stayed a few days in this hotel and we totally loved it. Being upgraded to the Presidential Suite was definitely the highlight of our vacation. The suite was stunning with the balcony overlooking the Oyster Bar and the pool. Ronelle and her team took very good care of us and the breakfast at Cafe Gannet was amazing. Very well...

Booked for one night on our way to the Garden route. Anticipated that this would be the weak point of our holiday and although it was not up to the standard of our other accommodation, it was very nice. Room was modern and very comfortable, and as Mossel seemed quiet decided to eat in. Food was okay nothing great but...

Only stayed overnight but hotel was clean and comfy and we enjoyed our stay due to position of hotel slightly raised overlooking the harbour and beach. In particular the small bar area also has lovely view due to the huge conservatory type windows which give a panoramic view at night. The bar guy was also very welcoming and friendly. We...

This was a one night stop over, but from the moment we walked in we felt at home. Personal touches on arrival made us feel very welcome and the property itself is unique and very special - we particularly enjoyed drinks on the bar deck overlooking the ocean. When they found out we were on honeymoon, the staff made an...

We spent just one night at the Protea Hotel as we made our way along the Garden Route. When we arrived at about 1pm, our room was not ready so we went off for a spot of lunch and explored a bit of Mossel Bay. On our return we were greeted warmly and escorted to our room which was one...

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
