6/10 Good

If you are looking for a "motel" one night stay type thing this could be alright. The area isn't great, but security is good. I thought the actual room was pretty nice, although there were one or two stains lying around, I liked the bathroom. My highlight was definitely the friendliness of the staff, and the thing I disliked the most was the difficulty I had sleeping as a result of the noisy hotel guests.

8/10 Very good

Not having air con in the room meant that we slept with the windows open as it was much too hot. The noise of the street with cars, barking dogs and roosters made for an early morning wake up.

2/10 Poor

Rooms do not look like the pictures at all. They are blue. There was a window I could not close leading to the main hall causing it to be quite noisy. My room was near the main gate which was also noisy. The room was cool and dank. The surrounding area was not that nice. Would not stay in mossel bay. Or if so, stay near the beach/lighthouse area.

8/10 Very good

The location is great and staff very helpful. Buffet breakfast was also excellent. Air con would have been nice as there was quite a bit of noise outside our room - car horns, dogs barking and roosters. Our toilet seat was also broken so it would slide when we used it and eventually the entire lid came off.
