Rather like some of the other hotels we stayed in during our trip in South Africa, there were those hotels who did the bare minimum, and those that went above and beyond for their guests, and Mosselberg on Grotto Beach is definitely the latter. The hotel is set a little out of town – about 5-10 minutes drive – but...

Architecturally very different place to stay. Just off a beautiful beach and a fantastic long cliff walk about 7 km from Hermanus a seaside town famous for whale watching (in season). Open plan courtyard kind of design which is nice. The pool isn't as nice as in the photos. Very quiet so not the kind of place you're going to...

On a second visit to Mosselberg in Jan '17 it did not disappoint. Linda and her accomplished staff, including her lovely daughter, Belinda, are fantastic, and treat you like old friends.
