Everything about this Guest House is excellent: the hosts (very helpful and go more than the extra mile!), the room (beware though no bath in our room althouh not an issue really), the breakfast (great choice and ingredients), the location (stunning views and only 15 minutes to centre of town on foot).

Viv and Gerald Dreyer, a management team running beautiful Bosavern Guest House with a lot of hospitality. The guest house is situated on a hill. From the garden you have an unforgetable view on Plettenberg Bay and her beaches. Viv knows the sites you should visit very well and books a lunch or diner for you in the best possible... More

Within minutes as you meet Viv and Gerald, see the stunning building and look at the amazing view, you realize you have arrived somewhere very special and we were very glad we had booked for a seven night stay. We loved everything about it and felt more like guests staying at a friends house but friends who worked very hard... More

We travel a fair bit and this place was definitely amongst the top places we have visited. Firstly Vivien and Gerald are incredibly welcoming and attentive; secondly the location is fabulous with views over Plettenberg; and thirdly there is high speed internet and when it broke down, Vivien was on to it immediately.
