Lovely clean & comfortable. Very friendly & helpful staff and breakfast was lovely. The position is a little out of the town but they arranged a shuttle bus to take & deliver us back from local restaurants.

A bright and well appointed guest house where the staff were so attentive and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful in a beautiful room overlooking the town with views over the bay. On a steep hillside going up from the town centre so take care when driving and parking at the property. Otherwise accommodation was faultless.

Excellent guest house, clean, comfortable and very well maintained. Very comfortable bed. The staff are great, very polite and amenable. Well stocked mini bar. Good selection of food at breakfast. Very good views of the bay, as you are at the top of a steep hill.

Position just up on the hill behind city center (but very uphill road) and in a peaceful street. We got room on the 1st floor which was very big with 2 double beds. It was clean and well equipped. Generous breakfast in the morning. Parking on the back of the B&B but there is no much place!

The guest house is located very high on the hill at Mossel Bay, & our rooms (with glass balconies) had wonderful views of the port, harbour, sea & beach. The views were outstanding. Our rooms were a nice size, with nice showers & amenities. The honesty mini bar was well priced. The guest house has a lovely African themed honesty...

Bar-t-nique is a nice place to stay with great views of Mossel Bay, is very clean, quiet and served a great breakfast. The staff were mostly friendly, although the lady on the front desk when we arrived wasn't anywhere near as friendly as all of the other 8 hotels that we stayed in. No one helped us with our cases...

We stayed here for one night on our way along the Garden Route and found the place to be very comfortable and clean. Our room was decent, nothing spectacular but very good for the price. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked and with cereal/continental options. We arrived late at night and the owner called ahead to a restaurant to make sure...
