Stayed in Mossel Bay only one night and had booked here, Guest house is modern, spacious and great view of the harbour as it nestles on the hillside. Breakfast was very excellent, although choice was limited, room was smallish, bathroom was lovely, shower head naff. Yes I would stay here again gladly, a plus was the honesty bar and panoramic...

Very modern and comfortable with all the facilities that one would expect in a top-rated small hotel. Having our own balcony with a sea view was the icing on the cake. It is in a very quiet part of the town, which means that it is easier if you have your own car. The steep entrance to the hotel's car...

This is really a nice place to stay while driving up the Indian Coast. The Inn is very nice, the views above the city are beautiful. The staff seems to wish to please your every need or desire. The prices are very reasonable. A stay here is perfect.

The overall lay out was fantastic. It was clean and well organised. The owner was attentive and we had a truly wonderful time. The view of the bay from our window was stunning. The breakfast we had was amazing. The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to eat during our stay.

This was our 2nd stay at Bar-t-nique Guest House. Renee, our hostess, upgraded our accommodation to the Suite which boasts a panoramic view of the bay. The room itself is pristine, with crisp white linens, a lovely sitting area and a large bathroom. Everything looks brand new. The staff is friendly and offered restaurant suggestions for dinner. Parking is easy...

The Bar-t-nique is situated high up in Mossel Bay with an amazing view! It's a nice guesthouse, with clean and spacious rooms (at least the one we had was spacious). Good breakfast. The neighboring dogs are a bit noisy already at six in the morning but we enjoyed our stay anyways.

Penthouse accommodation was simplistic, yet luxurious and private. The huge double bed and beautiful white linen was heavenly. We were able to absorb the beauty of the harbour and beach from our bed and delight in early morning coffee and tea while watching the sun rise. Beautiful touches to the penthouse, and the location great. Staff friendly. Recommendation by receptionist...
