Pleasant room but no soap in bathroom, no bulb in bedside light and kette not working. Disappointed as otherwise OK place to stay. It's the small things that make a difference WiFi password not provided on checkin.

We were just passing through Mossel Bay as part of our garden route drive from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. A quick look at trip advisor gave us a very good impression of this guest house, and they had a room at very short notice. I agree with some of the previous comments - friendly welcome, large room, beautiful views,...

The Edward Charles is well situated for anyone holidaying or working in Mossel Bay and has comfortable rooms with a very comfortable bed. When I booked, I asked for a room with a sea view, balcony and bar fridge and looked forward to getting such when checking in, however, the people using that room before me extended their stay with...

We had the pleasure at staying here in December 2014. The staff were very warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, including the bed! The breakfast was delicious, and served by friendly staff, who were coping with an unscheduled power outage. We had a balcony, from where we got a good view of Mossel Bay. We would certainly return.

We had a 3 man bike tour and stayed 1 night, great hotel with amazing view. The breakfast was very good and the service couldn't be better. Please don't expect a brand new 5 Star facility, that isn't what this is. This is a very friendly local family feel place to stay and relax. I'll be going back when I'm...

Hotel building itself is fine, but it is not near any restaurants or bars. On checking out manager demanded payment despite written information from Expedia advising had paid in full. It turned out that despite payment being sent to them they had not accepted it. Hotel did very little to resolve it themselves and refused to contact expedia.
