We overnighted on our way to Tsitsikamma recently, we were assigned the Presidential Suite - but what an awesome suite! We were sorry we couldn't stay longer - it is absolutely amazing! Everything about it - even the views from the verandah - cannot describe it any other way then just absolutely AWESOME!!!! Looking forward to going back soon!

The Protea was our base for a night whilst in SA. We liked it. The staff on arrival were so welcoming and a very tasty glass of sherry offered. The location was good had lovely views but (and it's only a temporary but) there was building work going on in some of the rooms so if you were looking for...

Beautiful views, great food, comfortable luxurious stay! I would definitely like to go back and stay much longer. Quaint little town and the atmosphere makes you feel you still in the 1800 but with all the modern perks!

Stopped off for one night on our way east along the coast from Cape Town. The hotel itself is fine. They have done a good job restoring an old building, with lots of additional modern rooms out the back. The restaurant within the hotel is the #1 restaurant in the town, so it gets busy. The town itself however is...

Gorgeous hotel and the staff were so so welcoming and kind. Very safe area and the restaurants were gorgeous. Our suite was perfect which over looked the beach. There are a couple of really nice bars along the waterfront. Raging now that I didn't book a shark cage experience - maybe next time

We stayed a few days in this hotel and we totally loved it. Being upgraded to the Presidential Suite was definitely the highlight of our vacation. The suite was stunning with the balcony overlooking the Oyster Bar and the pool. Ronelle and her team took very good care of us and the breakfast at Cafe Gannet was amazing. Very well...

Booked for one night on our way to the Garden route. Anticipated that this would be the weak point of our holiday and although it was not up to the standard of our other accommodation, it was very nice. Room was modern and very comfortable, and as Mossel seemed quiet decided to eat in. Food was okay nothing great but...

Only stayed overnight but hotel was clean and comfy and we enjoyed our stay due to position of hotel slightly raised overlooking the harbour and beach. In particular the small bar area also has lovely view due to the huge conservatory type windows which give a panoramic view at night. The bar guy was also very welcoming and friendly. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The luxurious 31-roomed Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is a graceful landmark, built in 1846, overlooking Santos Bay and harbour. Nestling on the Mossel Bay shoreline with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as a backdrop, the Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is singled out from other establishments. Protea Hotel Mossel Bay is situated 5 min from Santos Beach. Take in the sea air whilst dining at Café Gannet, where you can sample local mussels, fresh fish and oysters or try the chefs daily specials. As sunset arrives, visit the Legendary Blue Oyster Cocktail Bar, with its own special ambience, pool deck and superb sea views, is the perfect place to kick off a decadent evening out or simply just to relax and enjoy the sunset with an aperitif before dinner. Added attractions are the close proximity to shopping facilities, the yacht club, harbour and north-facing, sun splashed beaches. As part of the museum complex, the Maritime, Local History and Shell Museum, as well as the Old Post Office Tree, are all within strolling distance. The new golf estate is 2km away and the airport a 20 minute drive. ... more   less
