The fan in Room 5 requires urgent repair !! Late night noise was a problem. Someone banging doors late at night. Room slightly too small. The refrigerator functions poorly. Not very cold at all. No ice. Stairs from road level to reception a serious problem. Extremely steep and a problemm for elderly people to carry luggage up and down those steps.

Ok first of all I didn’t really like the resort of Mossel Bay. Couple of nice beaches but nothing much else to recommend the area. The B and B, hmm the young girl Jamie gave us a good welcome and my room was ok with a nice view. It was like an old building that has been given a make up to a certain extent. Pool was small and had not been cleaned, BreaKfast was fine nothing that special. Sheets and towel had old washed stains on them. Really hard as it was ok but really nothing special. Didn’t like Mossel Bay and wouldn’t go back to resort or hotel but we had a couple of great meals in local restaurants see sep reports.

I recently came to Mossel Bay for a work trip. I stayed at the Edward Charles guesthouse. I really enjoyed my time here. The guesthouse was perfect for my needs and i could relax in the evening after a hard day of working. The staff were all very friendly and even allowed me to check out late on my last day. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

We spent three nights at this lovely Guest House. The sea view room we requested was large and comfortable with a stunning view of the town and bay. The stairs to the second floor could be a challenge for some as well as slippery in the rain. A full breakfast is offered. Mariaan was a delightful hostess.This establishment is minutes away from the sea, the tourist attractions as well as the Malls. I recommend this establishment to anyone wanting a comfortable stay.
