The Hotel is beautifully located. There was building taking place and drilling and hammering could be heard throughout the day every hour. The food is reasonably priced and the staff were super friendly.

This was the best stay of my entire trip to South Africa.. we had been booked with this hotel by a travel agent. We had stayed here for maximum number of days. The connectivity of this hotel to all the activities around is very good. Most importantly, the breathtaking view from the room. The sunrise experienced in the morning is...

A very scenic view from the hotel and the cliff face. We want to come in April to view the Whales swim past. The dassies are so cute. In front of the hotel are natual beach pools that are quite safe for children to play in. The service and food was excellent.

We travelled with gem tours and travels for South Africa tour. In the point hotel we enjoyed our stay for four days in July 2016. The hotel is situated on the seashore.. Our rooms were on third floor and sea facing . They had put many lighting on the sea shore so we could enjoy sea even during night time....

Hi! Sooooo disappointed by our experience. This supposedly 4 star hotel obviously has not been rated recently. Except for the service and friendliness of 4 staff members ( Lanie, Lidia, Enslin and Lucretia ) nothing good can be said about anything or anyone else! Poor food, if there was anything left! Tables were not cleared in the dining room. You...

First of all the hotel is located ideally within the cliffs of Mossel Bay. There is an ocean pool directly in front of the hotel as well as several restaurants nearby. However, the hotel is not achieving what I expect from a four star hotel. The interiour of the hotel as well as the rooms were a bit shabby and...

Stayed for 3 nights. Staff were incredibly helpful in getting us rooms. Aircon and tv didn't work in the first room - Aircon is important during a December visit to Mossel Bay. Also breakfast "service" wasn't great - tables aren't cleared and cleaned and you end up having to clear a table from a previous guest yourself in order to...
