We had a wonderful stay. Very happy with their service. We enjoyed the weekend a lot.
Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. Staff warm and friendly. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. Wish we could have stayed longer!
We have stayed at this hotel for the past 4 years, and the standard remains first class. Staff are extremely pleasant and efficient. Should we return to Mossel Bay we would certainly use this hotel again. Perfectly situated overlooking the waves crashing on the rocks.
We enjoyed our stay at the Point Hotel. The staff was very polite and service minded.
The point Hotel is magnificently situated over looking the Indian Ocean where you can watch and listen to the pounding of the waves to your heart's content, which we did. Breakfast on the terrace was a dream-out of this world! our room was light and spacious and had everything we needed including very good ensuite. On arrival at 2pm we were made very welcome by the restaurant staff (Janine) despite being the only guests there. Our evening meal there was also was very good.
