Eight Bells Mountain Inn

Mosselbay, Garden Route

Welcome to 

Eight Bells Mountain Inn

Starting out as a holiday farm more than 80 years ago Eight Bells Mountain Inn is now a full-service four-star hotel situated on a 400-acre estate in the Ruiterbos Valley Region of the Garden Route, at the foot of the Robinson Pass on the R328, between Mossel Bay (35km) and Oudtshoorn (50km).

We are renowned for our friendly hospitality, superb service and range of recreational facilities amidst magnificent mountain scenery. More than 60% of our guests are return visitors that have stayed here as little children and are now coming back with their grandchildren. Some of our regular international guests, mostly from the UK, have been coming back to Eight Bells every year for more than 30 years.

Our staff is our biggest asset as the majority has more than 30 years of service with us. In fact, we currently have the fourth generation of two families working for us.

We offer 25 tastefully decorated en-suite bedrooms, family units, air-conditioned log cabins and thatched rondavels all set in enchanting gardens shared by an abundance of birdlife.
