An truly wonderful place to stay and we loved every minute of being there! We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 friends and on arrival were given a very warm and welcoming greeting from Pam the owner. She offered us a drink which was just what we needed after a long drive, and we were able to enjoy this...

Our room was very spacious, well furnished, with a very comfortable, large double bed and great shower. There are views of the Indian Ocean from your room, the terrace and dining area and being able to walk to the beach...

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Pam's delightful little guesthouse last week. Pam is not just a consummate host but an absolute delight to stay with. Pam pointed us on the direction of the best restaurants, the best hikes and always had a pot of tea ready when we came back from a hike! The breakfast is...

This is by far the best guesthouse my husband and I has ever been too. Pam and her staff were exceptionally hospitable. The rooms and breakfast were outstanding. Tranquil environment overlooking the ocean. A perfect breakaway for a final destination or even just a stop over. It is a must see for all local and international travellers. We will definitely...

Rather than just repeating all of the excellent comments which other people have made,I thought that I would write this review as a Brit from Brighton, resident in Cape Town. Use this little piece of excellence as your base for this section of the Garden Route, forget Knysna and visit from here.Thanks Pam, would love to return.

I've just spent a wonderful week in Plettenberg Bay at the superb Dolphins' Beachfront B & B run by Pam Meara. Pam is such a welcoming and hospitable hostess that we felt that were more like family than guests. Nothing was too much for her. The room was so clean and overlooked the beach, a huge plus. Pam's breakfasts were...
