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!

We would highly recommend staying at Bosavern. Vivienne and Gerald are wonderful hosts who immediately make you feel most welcome. On our way to Bosavern we had made a restaurant reservation with great difficulty - we knew where we wanted to eat for the 2 evenings we stayed at Bosaver. So imagine our delight when we found that Vivienne had... More

We would definitely recommend staying at Bosavern Guest House to anyone visiting Plettenberg Bay. Gerald & Vivian made our stay very special! We have never know hospitality like it, to have a table booked for you (in the best restaurant in town) before you have even arrived at the guesthouse-nothing was too much trouble for them, they made us feel...

On arrival we were met by Viv and Gerald apart from being greeted warmly by the owners, the first thing that greets you is the magnificent views high above and across the bay - it is spectacular. The offer of a much needed tea, coffee or a drink was much appreciated after a long drive. The standard of the accommodation... More

We would recommend staying at Bosavern Guest House to anyone visiting Plettenberg Bay. Gerald & Vivian made our stay special, nothing was too much trouble for them, booking reservations in restaurants, taxis and even washing our car. We had first class accommodation, our rooms were wonderful and breakfast delicious, the girls were also great. Had a fabulous time & hope... More

Gerald and Vivian are the most friendly host you can think of. They really care! The guest house itself also reflects this attitude, because it is equipped with everything you might need - and even more.

We spent a fabulous 2 nights with Vivienne and Gerald in their beautiful guesthouse. We arrive on Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised to hear that Vivienne had kindly made a dinner reservation for us, as the resturants in town were very busy. Such thoughtfulness is truly exceptional. Everything about this guesthouse is first class. Vivienne's friendliness and exceptional local... More
