Stayed her for 2 nights in January. The hotel is simply sublime, the decor was like no other hotel we had stayed in during our 2 week trip. It was quirky and interesting but with an old world feel. The beds are like clouds with lovely big cast Iron beds and soft cotton linen. The staff were second to none,... More

I’ve stayed here twice now – a treat to myself before moving on to my other accommodation. A treat it is! Right in the town of Plettenberg Bay, it has stunning views over the lagoon and beaches. The hotel itself is eccentrically styled - an Old World, other worldly elegance and charm of a bygone era – a touch of... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Grand in Plett and would definitely return. The hotel is intimate and beautifully decorated with a great view of the bay. The meals - both breakfast and dinner were also excellent!

This is lovely boutique hotel with personal touch. Its stylishly furnished with antique furniture making the experience unique. I really loved its charm and specious rooms. I would definitely revisit this hotel if in the area. Also loved its proximity to the town.

Me and my partner were working close by as volunteers, on every day off we had we would venture here for their world class Grand Mojito, made with cranberry juice! By the 3rd visit they didn't even ask us what we wanted to drink! The cocktail prices are very reasonable, R60 for the above. The staff are excellent, nothing is... More

Had dinner with friends and our waiter made the evening. She was So attentive and definitely went the extra mile. The camembert cheese starter is Wow and the carpaccio is really special. Chicken salad with deep fried avo not that nice. Overall a great experience. Will be back. This establishment is not for dining on a budget.....

This is out "go back to" restaurant in Plett, had various lunches and dinners there over the last decade, and will go back again - smallish menu, great food, good wine list, and excellent service - try it out, you will not be dissapointed

It's hard to find a one good thing to say about this place: staff was unfriendly, while the room was dirty and seriously shabby. We asked to clean it, but almost nothing has changed. The towels were damaged with giant yellow spots like pee. The breakfast was poor. This hotel is miles away from Mr&MsSmith standard.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a road trip. The location of the hotel is ideal, within walking distance of the town centre and the beach set at the top of the hillside. Views from the dining area were superb over the coastline. What struck us immediately was the effort made to give it an 'old' look.... More
