Stayed here recently for 2 nights while driving on the garden route. A really cool vibe and very relaxed but professional staff. As long as you are prepared to embrace something a little bit different you will have a great time.

Arrived today and love this hotel! One of our party is staying in the farm room and it's stunning. Beautiful terrace to sip a glass of wine. We're in room 5 which has fantastic views from the balcony. Yes it's quirky but it's individual and fabulous. Staff friendly and so helpful.

Thank you, we had the most magical stay at The Grand where we stayed 10 years ago after our wedding. It was even better than I remembered. Staff were amazing and went the extra mile. Our room was so beautiful, we just loved every minute!

This small hotel was so unusual, with fascinating quirky details everywhere you looked. The small pool just outside our room was great for a refreshing dip. We shared a bottle of wine by the light of our candleabra in the courtyard. Just one of our favourites in a great time spent in the beautiful South Africa. The view over the...

Fantastic experience to enjoy breakfast /dinner on the terrace overlooking the bay. Rooms are beautifully different and though unusual, made the stay feel quite special. The whole hotel was simply charming. Staff were friendly and helpful.

A Moroccan style hotel which looks very attractive. Our room, the Farm Suite was very dark and gloomy with overly distressed furniture. The lighting was very poor. Our shower was outside and we had to walk over a concrete patio and then hobble onto little stones which was very painful. The staff were very friend,y and helpful

Went there for a birthday lunch on 19 Feb 2017. Simple menu but very nice. The Grand is high and from where we sat we had a beautiful view of the sea and beaches. We had an excellent waitress. Good place to go.

FANTASTIC stop over here. The Hotel decor is out of this world..old wooden stuff with an arty flare and the rooms are wonderful and spacious. Situation is great and we could easily get around the town centre from there on foot. Easy access in and out for drivers too.

We felt very welcome when we arrived here. The staff were friendly and very helpful in giving advice on things to do in Plenttenberg. The parking was outside on the road but the staff helped to reserve a place and provided a note to display in the car to avoid parking fines. There were no problems. We immediately fell in...

The first time we stayed at The Grand we loved it so planned another visit the following year. This time around we noticed that the hotel is more shabby than chic. When we were shown to our room we saw a huge crack across the glass pane on the front door to our room and the frame around the window...
