We had the pleasure of staying at Periwinkle. Matt was absolutely wonderful. He was very helpful and even made reservations to the Fat Fish twice during our stay. By the way if you are in Plettenberg you must go there for dinner as they have fabulous food. We stayed in room 2 which is the best room of the place....

As a guest house, this was better than most hotels that I've stayed in. Everything from checking in to the food to the rooms was top class. Matt and the team made us feel very welcome and helped with things to do and places to eat. The kitchen facilities are great with complimentary tea and coffee and treats. The view...

Beautifully located across the road from the beach and the views from the infinity pool on the roof were amazing. The rooms were really lovely, although the towels had a weird smell!! The breakfast, omelettes in particular, was to die for. The staff were really friendly and the masseuse (Rose) was awesome!

Unlike their affiliate lodge Starfish, we found Periwinkle to be overpriced for the quality of the accomodations. This was not a 5 star hotel with service staff; it was a 4 star guest lodge. Staff was wonderful and professional and accomodated our need to leave our luggage with them for hte afternoon after we checked out. Common areas were very...
