Edward Charles - The Manor Hotel

Hotel / Guest House Garni

It is the uniqueness of the Old Post Office Tree Manor Hotel, nestling on the Mossel Bay shoreline with the majestic Outeniqua mountains as a backdrop, that singles it out from other establishments. Its stone walls and Mediterranean-style out-buildings belie the fact that the main building is one of the oldest in Mossel Bay and forms part of the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex.

Added attractions are the close proximity to shopping facilities, the yacht club, harbour and north-facing, sunsplashed beaches. As part of the museum complex, the Maritime, Local History and Shell Museum as well as the Old Post Office Tree are all within strolling distance. The new golf estate is 2km away and the airport a 20 minute drive.

A Mediterranean climate attracts thousands of visitors each year, many came to see the whales at play in the warm waters.


30 Seaview rooms & suites overlook the beautiful blue bay with the Outeniqua Mountains in the background. Each room/suite is individually decorated with colourful fabrics and homely antique and modern furniture. All rooms/suites are en suite, equipped with radio alarm, coffee/tea making facilities, telephone, hairdryer and magazines. Private secure parking is available for guests. Room/Suite categories are determined by size and view from the room.

The Old Post Office Tree Manor Hotel could best be described as a hotel complex. It comprises the Blue Oyster cocktail bar situated adjacent to the pool overlooking Munro’s Bay, a cosy breakfast room, conference centre for groups of up to 35 persons and Caf Gannet.
