Very nice hotel and people very friendly. Balcony room overlooking ocean and many tidal pools. Good food and withing walking distance to another restaurant. Light house next door, good hike. Tours could be taken from hotel. Very pleased with the area and hotel.
I wanted to spend the weekend in Mosselbay in a cozy and quiet hotel. The Protea Hotel is that kind of hotel. A beautiful view over the harbour, the rooms are very friendly and generous, the staff phantastic and the food very good.
Finding hotels in South Africa during World Cup was a daunting task, and Linkside2 was one of the few who had a room left. We chose it based on the positive reviews from recent lodgers, but no review could do this place justice; even we can't decide on what positive aspect to focus on [Petra the owner who did us a huge favour when we arrived (she'll know what we mean), the guesthouse itself, the spectacular room, the delicious breakfast, the panoramic views, the city (yes, much more to see and do than expected), and the firsct-class service in general] as the only negative thing is that it was a 15-20 minute walk to city center and there's no public transport. However, we didn't mind that so much as we're used to walking, and this would be a non-issue for those with cars. So, the only thing we could really say that might encompass all the thoughts we have of this place is that it's a place to be seen and experienced.

The 'luxury tent' accommodation is exactly that: the bed large and luxurious with four posts and full mosquito nets (not that we noticed any, and nor is it a malarial area), and a great bathroom with large oval bath and double outdoor shower (quite private), complete with touches like candles and room fragrance.
Of course, being separated from the bush by just canvas walls, you will hear the creatures around you making their natural calls, which is most noticeable nocturnally and the incredible dawn chorus - but if you're up for the 6am game drive that won't be a problem! The game drives themselves were wonderful.
The food is good - although the dinner buffet is let down by the side dishes in awful heated containers, whereas the cooked to order meat (including game such as impala, ostrich and crocodile) is great.
