Betty’s Boutique Hotel is situated in Mossel Bay on the Garden Route in the Western Cape in South Africa.

Our Story

We the owners are the Clayphan family from Yorkshire in England who moved to Johannesburg South Africa in 2003 with my husband’s job. We quickly fell in love with this beautiful country and subsequently in 2005 we built a holiday home in Mossel Bay on the Garden Route. Our daughter Daisy grew up in SA from the age of 6 and went to school in JBG and Mossel Bay, before finishing her education in Dubai where we all moved to for 5 years, Daisy started baking from 4 years old with her granny Marjorie in England who started her off on baking cupcakes! Whilst in Dubai Daisy developed even more of a passion for food after dining in many top class restaurants there and meeting Gordon Ramsay on her 14th birthday and so set her sights on becoming a chef. She then went on to study a culinary arts degree at Buxton in Derbyshire in England and dreamed of having her own place to fulfil her dream.

Why Betty's

In July 2017 we bought this beautiful old building in Mossel Bay central and renamed it Betty's in honour of Betty my husbands dear mother. Betty loved fine China teacups and loved to bake, that’s why at Betty's Boutique Hotel you will always enjoy our food on pretty china plates, cake stands and silver teapots and white tablecloths.

What's Next

Now Daisy has married Lewis and they have an adorable little boy called Leo.
They run Betty’s with a passion and love meeting all different nationalities and making their stay extra special, nothing is too much trouble.

They cook amazing breakfasts and will book trips, make restaurant reservations, offer afternoon teas , 3 course dinners, and offer a wonderful personal stay !
Mum and dad Wendy & Dave are still involved in the meet and greet with guests as they love a glass of bubbles or 2 !
Come and experience the magic of Bettys and see for yourself !

Betty's Boutique Hotel is simply unique. Wendy and Dave are the warmest kindest couple who make you feel welcome the minute you arrive and will go to any length to make your stay a memorable one. The rooms are so comfortable, spacious and have everything you need, such as tea, coffee, hair dryer, mirrors, iron etc. they even have a maid who will wash and iron your clothes for a very small fee. The large bathrooms have good powerful showers that make you feel like you are in your own private wet room. And the grounds and swimming pool area are fabulous with fantastic sea views. Cleanliness is second to none. The full English breakfast is the best I've ever had in any hotel, which follows the best selection of fresh fruits, yoghurts and granola or muesli and juices. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in top class accommodation that feels like home from home.
