We stayed here for a short time and Inga was very attentive and very welcoming. Views were great and close to restaurants and the beach. Our room was great and the self catering facilities were good too and had everything you needed. Would recommend if you are in Plettenberg bay.

Comfort, quirk and character - these are some of the things one can experience at Whale of a View. With magnificent views of the beach and the river, the rooms are full of character with plenty of communal space and a beautifully kitted out kitchen, deck and open plan comfort. The staff (a family) are such warm and wonderful people... More

We stayed in a garden view room that had a 1950's decoration theme. We have two small children and they accommodated us very well with a cot and a crib. The breakfast was excellent and the kitchen facilities were open for us to use. It has a fantastic view on the top floor and I think an ocean view room... More

Communication before arrival was reasonable and we were looking forward to resting after a lengthy drive as we arrived on Christmas eve in the late afternoon. After being shown to our room and given no information - we were told the owner would come see us shortly, we took a look at our surroundings. Unfortunately, the Garden Room seemed to... More

The house has its own charme. They collect alot and therefore each room has its own character. We took the room upstairs. The view was great..the room as well. The breakfast was yummy and we could sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view over the ocean. The owner provided us with information and took really good care. Go there !!

This hotel lives up to it's name, and offers a fantastic ocean view from upstairs rooms. This is an unusual but quirky hotel, that is full of character. We were met by Inge the manager, who made us very welcome, and showed us our very large room, which had a "Marilyn Munroe" theme. The en-suite room was spotless, and we... More

This was a charming and peaceful little b&b. Each room is uniquely decorated and with such character! There was a beautiful bath, great shower, clean, and homey. Our room on the top floor with view of the bay was just stunning. Slept like a queen here.
