Park house lodge and backpackers is rated 4 star (according to whom I do not know). Whoever rated this dump is either blind or stupid. It is also very deceiving on their website, showing pretty pictures of an empty space with a garden table and...More

This lodge, with its lush garden setting, is home away from home to travellers, tourists and holiday makers. It is situated at the historical pulse of central Mossel Bay; near picturesque beaches, harbour, More restaurants and vibrant entertainment activities. Mossel Bay is the front door to the spellbinding beauty of the Garden Route. The magnificent scenery of indigenous forests hemmed by sunbleached beaches makes a journey of this region an unforgettable experience. The sight of the brilliantly blue Indian Ocean juxtaposed to luxurious expanses of regal greens strikes amazement and admiration from around the world Less
