Fodor's Expert Review Protea Hotel Mossel Bay
Church and Market Sts, Mossel Bay, Western Cape, 6500, South Africa
Just yards away from the museum complex, this stylish hotel is close to most of what's happening in Mossel Bay. You can take in the great view of the harbor, beach, and sea while relaxing at the Blue Oyster Pool Lounge. Strange nooks and crannies and yard-thick stone walls testify to the building's status as the third oldest in Mossel Bay (it dates back to the mid-19th century), but rooms are bright and spacious, with exposed-brick walls and decor in tasteful shades of creams and greens. Standard rooms have showers only. Self-catering suites are as stylish as the hotel rooms with two balconies that overlook the water.
- location very central for museum, restaurants, and the beach
- stylish and modern rooms
- swimming pool is small and overlooked by the terrace
- street-facing rooms can be noisy, view is slightly obstructed by building below
