We arrived on a horrible wet day in Plett, having just come from an ultra-modern villa in Cape Town so our initial impressions that the hotel and rooms were very dark were probably influenced by this. In saying that we quickly settled in and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at the Grand Café and Rooms. The staff and food are... More

this hotel is what I would call quirky and different. We are quite traditional people when it comes to hotels and this one is not. The room was not what we expected, a bath in the bedroom, a bed which was so high you needed to stand on a step to get onto it, we are quite short and struggled... More

This hotel would not be everyone's cup of tea and I liked it more than my husband. The rooms are quite dark and the open room shower and stools to get in to bed add a historical feel to the place. You are even provided with an old fashioned white cotton long nightdress! We were in room 7 which had... More

Having found ourselves in Plettenberg Bay late afternoon on a Sunday most places were closed. We tried the one or two that were open only to very rudely be told they were full. When we arrived at The grand Café the welcome could not have been warmer. They too were full so seated us on the terrace where we started... More

Stayed here for three days in January 2015. This hotel is situated right on a roundabout at one end of the main street. There is no hotel parking but there is plenty of on street parking nearby, hotel gives you a slip to put in widescreen to stop you getting tickets. On arrival was met by helpful and friendly staff.... More

I am a South Aftican and I booked 3 rooms as I was bringing overseas guests up the Garden Route. The rooms are quirky and cater for your every need. The location is fabulous. You can walk to the beautiful Lookout Beach, shops and restaurants. The service is terrible nobody tries to help you, if you ask for a drink... More

We stayed 4 nights in early February. Our first impression was one of surprise because it has many unique features. We very quickly grew to be enchanted. All of the staff, without exception, were both efficient and courteous, the position above the Bay delightful and the terrace a real pleasure. The only improvement we could have wanted was a room...

We were only meant to be stopping for one night in Plett but the individual and warm reception we received at The Grand prompted us to stay for two! The hotel may not be to everyone's taste but we loved it. Staying in room 7, we had stunning views over the sea and surrounding countryside and spent hours on the... More

What a stay. Stunning views from the restaurant and our room. Very relaxed and stylish. The decor is bohemian which gives it a relaxed and unique feel. The staff are attentive, courteous and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble, so much so we changed our plans to stay an extra night we enjoyed the ambience and our room so much.
