This is a lovely guest house, beautifully appointed bedrooms and communal spaces, staff are all lovely, breakfast excellent and views truly breath-taking. It is well positioned for local restaurants and I would stay there again if we are ever in Plett.

This is a great place to stay in Plettenberg Bay. The room was spacious and well appointed and the public areas are comfortable with a terrific view of the bay. It is in walking distance of all local facilities. I'll be back

What a guest house! It was beautiful with a magnificent view of the bay. The room is top class. Also the guest house is close to all the restaurants and shopping area. There are also loungers and sofas available. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. A great place to stay.

Nice place to stay, centrally located for the town (though the town closes early!). Cute pool but only four loungers on this level and the cushions are taken away mid-afternoon if they are not being used at the time which is really odd. Nice room, nice staff, nothing not to like and I'd happily stay again but Plett Bay is...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were extremely helpful and the view from the deck are upstairs and the pool fantastic. Breakfast and communal areas were also great. The only negative is that the rooms downstairs are all off the communal areas/ breakfast room so it was very noisy in the morning when staff were preparing breakfast pre...

Good points: Lovely converted house. Nice furnishings Good full breakfast Location is nice and central for both the beach and the local shops Bad points: Staff are quite rude, with the exception of the lady serving breakfast. Check in is limited to 4pm. We had emailed prior to our arrival, but apparently the hotel hadn't received this. Thankfully we weren't...

Thank you for your constructive complaint. I can assure you that management has taken these points up with staff and we will grow from this experience. Check in is definitely not limited to 16hoo, as relief arrives as soon as cleaning staff go home, with a phone number placed outside. Light and fan issues will be sorted out. Thank you...
