Absolutely AMAZING location! Everything about this guest house far surpassed our expectations. THE most beautiful room with the best views over Mossel Bay. Our hosts were warm and welcoming. Lovely little treats in our room. Quite simply the best b&b that we have ever stayed in. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

The hosts are wonderful people who go over and above! All the little extras and finer details were certainly noticed so thank you very much!

Amazing view and great hosts!
Elzanne and Herman are the most friendly and caring hosts!! Besides the fantastic house with an outstanding view over Mossel Bay, absolutely clean and modern rooms and delicious breakfast we really want to point out the way they took care about us! We received so many good information about activities in and around Mossel Bay, for restaurants based on our preferences and even for our upcoming tour to the next cities. We really appreciate staying at The Lookout Guest House!
