We recently spend 3 nights at Bosavern with Gerald and Viv. They were very welcoming and incredibly helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They gave us loads of local advice and information and were happy to book restaurants and activities for us. Bosavern is in a beautiful location with a truly spectacular view. the room was lovely and very comfortable.... More

Gerald and Viv were the best hosts from the moment we arrived until our departure three nights later. We cannot say enough about the fantastic accommodation. The rooms were so well designed to accommodate the guests: with very comfortable beds, great space, side table lamps, built in hairdryer in the dressing/make up area, large bathrooms with spacious shower facilities and...

We had a fantastic time at Bosavern during our 3 day stay in Plett in March. Gerald and Viv were very helpful and make restaurant bookings for us at Fat Fish and Zinzi and even managed to get us on a sunset walk with Cheetahs at Tenikwa. Bosavern is well signposted off the N2 and enjoys a beautiful view of... More

We stayed at Bosavern in March 2015 on a tour along the Garden Route. Our room and the whole property was modern, clean, light and airy, with a shared deck and swimming pool. Viv and Gerald couldn't have been more helpful, suggesting places we might like to visit, including a spectacular hike along the Robberg Peninsula. Breakfast was tasty and... More

We have stayed in some wonderful guest houses in our 3 visits to South Africa however nothing has inspired me to write a review on Trip Adviser - until now. The location of Bosavern is great, just far enough from town to be quiet but handy enough for a stroll down for dinner, the house is superb, the staff are... More

Well, what can I say.....Vivien and Gerald provide such a warm welcome then the 5* treatment does not end there. Wonderful couple, friendly and just provide a home from home for their guests. We enjoyed our few days at the Bosavern and it is well recommended as the perfect guest house to stay in. Would not hesitate to stay there... More

We loved the Bosavern guesthouse and the owners and their staff, it was like family, and we felt like home. In addition, the view of the terrace and the breakfast room was terrific and our room comfortable and the beds super size big!
