This is a lovely B&B in an upscale residential area 5 minutes from Mossel Bay. The view from the room is stunning. The rooms are a nice size with large bathrooms. The hot water bottles on the bed adds a homey touch and there is a space heater for a more efficient, if less romantic, heat. Breakfast was delicious with... More

Stunning!!! From the absolutely magnificent view, classy rooms, wunderbar gastfrau with her cute poodle who will quickly steal your heart, the traditional Swiss breakfast and cozy atmosphere to so much more! A must visit when in Dana Bay or even Mosselbay. You will find Pia's travel knowledge surprising and her friendliness a sure miss when you leave.

Set in a conservation area, view is amazing and saw a couple of buck a few meters from the house. The place is immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast enjoyable. Swiss owner very pleasant and keen to help make the stay enjoyable. Would have liked more channels on TV. Would definitely stay there again.

Sitting high on the hill overlooking the bay, ClassicalView is quiet, safe, clean and truly wonderful. We enjoyed a large room with slider looking out to the beach, gorgeous clean and big bathroom, a delicious breakfast served by the new owner of the B&B. She's swiss - so be prepared for the best muesli you've ever eaten - and that's... More

We've been at Classical view a while ago and I still have good memories about our visit. The rooms are clean, the view is magnificent, the food is good and the hospitality of Andrea and Godfried was great. When I'm in South Africa again, I would certainly go back to Classical View.

We stayed at Classical View for 1 night on a road trip on the Garden Route. The location is spectacular, at Dana Bay, about 8km from Mossel Bay and away from the bustle.

We stayed for 2 nights and would have stayed much longer if possible. Our room was overlooking the ocean and in the morning we had a small zoo right in front of our window. Fantastic. The location is a bit tucked away a few km outside of Mossel Bay which makes it very easy to reach. The owners were very... More
