The awe-inspiring Outeniqua mountain range is lends the hotel’s location an air of mysterious beauty. But it’s the variety of accommodation options that will make you want to put this hotel on your travel tour packages list. You can choose a manor room, family room or even a self-catering harbour suite. Set on the magnificent harbour, the hotel offers visitors a magical outlook.

In the elegant cocktail bar, you’ll be treated to views of Santos Beach and Munro’s Bay. The Protea Hotel in Mossel Bay was built in 1846, and is rich in history.
