This B&B is very conveniently located on Beacon Way. Close to Lookout beach and the nearby shopping mall. Excellent value for money and breakfast on the upstairs patio with the sun rising over Lookout beach was breath-taking.

A lovely place to stay in Plettenberg Bay – beautiful, stylishly decorated rooms and a delicious, healthy breakfast. We stayed in the suite which was very spacious and comfortable. Perfectly situated in a quiet area with a lovely view of the beach from the porch. Very friendly and helpful owners. We enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend... More

We had a wonderful room in this great, little B&B. We could see Plettenberg Bay from our room. It was a lovely, spacious room with an extra bedroom and large bathroom for an incredible price. Breakfast was served on the top floor where the view was even better. Our hosts were very warm and prepared delicious breakfasts.

This place has beautifully decorated rooms and great bathrooms but for far less money than places of an equivalent standard. The hosts are friendly and helpful and kindly tackled our very dirty clothes washing too! There is the option to have breakfast or not for a cheaper price - great for us as we had spent rather too many mornings... More

The best B&B we stayed at in South Africa! Clean, lovely owner, nice view, amazing room! Definitely price worthy, and I would pay double the price. Lyell was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good with a great view out to the ocean.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the place itself was gorgeous. Tastefully decorated and the owners were super friendly. We came from the UK and we did struggle with the heat. There is no aircon so at night it was a little uncomfortable. But hey, maybe we're just getting soft! Another complaint is that the property next door had... More

We only stayed at Lyall's for one night, but will definitely go there again. The owner was extremely friendly and we had a very warm welcome. The place is of very high standard and everything was very clean and crispy!

I was going to stay in Knysna but the places I wanted to stay at were already fully booked, even though it was out of season, so I decided to drive on to Plettenberg Bay and see what it had to offer. Although the town is not as interesting as Knysna, it does have a lovely scenic bay and at... More
