We only stayed one night to break up our journey from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth but this was a beautiful place to stay. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with an amazing view down to the coast. The bathroom was also huge, with the usual toiletries and hairdryer provided. Just be aware that you will be staying in...

Although a little off the beaten track, once found Classical View is a gem. This purpose built B&B sits high up overlooking the most wonderful view that you can possibly imagine. Pia, our host, could not do too enough for us. The rooms are spotless, large and airy with big balconies. Breakfast Is good. You have to drive five minutes...

This is a lovely B&B in an upscale residential area 5 minutes from Mossel Bay. The view from the room is stunning. The rooms are a nice size with large bathrooms. The hot water bottles on the bed adds a homey touch and there is a space heater for a more efficient, if less romantic, heat. Breakfast was delicious with...

Stunning!!! From the absolutely magnificent view, classy rooms, wunderbar gastfrau with her cute poodle who will quickly steal your heart, the traditional Swiss breakfast and cozy atmosphere to so much more! A must visit when in Dana Bay or even Mosselbay. You will find Pia's travel knowledge surprising and her friendliness a sure miss when you leave.

Set in a conservation area, view is amazing and saw a couple of buck a few meters from the house. The place is immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast enjoyable. Swiss owner very pleasant and keen to help make the stay enjoyable. Would have liked more channels on TV. Would definitely stay there again.

Sitting high on the hill overlooking the bay, ClassicalView is quiet, safe, clean and truly wonderful. We enjoyed a large room with slider looking out to the beach, gorgeous clean and big bathroom, a delicious breakfast served by the new owner of the B&B. She's swiss - so be prepared for the best muesli you've ever eaten - and that's...

We've been at Classical view a while ago and I still have good memories about our visit. The rooms are clean, the view is magnificent, the food is good and the hospitality of Andrea and Godfried was great. When I'm in South Africa again, I would certainly go back to Classical View.

We stayed at Classical View for 1 night on a road trip on the Garden Route. The location is spectacular, at Dana Bay, about 8km from Mossel Bay and away from the bustle. Rooms are very well laid out and have a great view. They have a pool where we sat and enjoyed a glass of wine. We didnt get...
