Excellent experience, wonderful views, great breakfasts, honesty bar tea and coffee available, but above all, the support and advice from the team at Bosavern could not have been more helpful. Thank you

Just got to spend one night at Bosavern Guest House which afforded a magnificent view over Plettenberg Bay. The hosts Barry and Veronica were delightful and couldn't do enough for us, including suggesting activities and restaurant recommendations and bookings. The premises was clean and comfortable but felt the room was a little stark in contrast to the warmth felt throughout... More

We stayed at Bosavern for 10 nights over New Years. Location is perfect. Just outside of the town and a quick drive to most of the beaches. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast were outstanding with an incredible view of Robberg. The pool is on a deck with the same spectacular view. The staff were brilliant, Veronica was... More

If it wasn't for the lack of air conditioning there would be very little reason to pick fault with this place. The location is close enough to the centre but far enough away from any noise. The views are spectacular and the rooms spacious. Veronica tries to ensure that everything is clean and the whole place well run,whilst at the... More

The guest house was in a beautiful elevated position with wonderful views across the bay. The rooms were all immaculately clean and well serviced. The breakfast was all that you could wish for. We found the people running this establishment extremely helpful. They prebooked restaurants for us for our stay (a good thing as one of them was absolutely full... More

Our stay at the Bosavern was made especially enjoyable by the new owner Barry. He was very helpful in giving us suggestions of which sites to see. The property is very well maintained and spotless throughout. We loved the Bosavern and would recommend it to everyone !

Having read some of the previous entries about a change of ownership we were a bit concerned about what we might find. We needn't have worried. Barry, the new owner, was extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for him. He recommended things for us to do, made dinner reservations for us and organised taxis for us. Bosavern is...

Spotlessly clean place to stay. Breakfast was excellent and the view breathtaking. Was so enjoyable to sit outside in the evening with a cocktail and enjoy the scenery. Our host, the new owner, was so helpful with things to do in the area and even made dinner reservations for us. Yes, it is very white, but the new owner and... More
