Four of us stayed for three nights around June 21st. The hotel looked very ordinary from outside but once through the door it was like stepping into another world. Everywhere you look there is another little detail that captures your attention. The food and atmosphere were so lovely that we had dinner three nights on the terrace in front of... More

fantastic stay at the Grand Cafe and Rooms, we were blown away by the character of the place. Our room 'The Bath House' had so many nice features including the plunge pool, twin baths, great art work, exposed pipes, high ceilings and candles which really created a unique environment to stay in. We stayed here on our honeymoon and would... More

A lovely hotel with exceptional service (with wonderful beds to relax on after running the Knysna marathon!). Great location near the centre of town close to restaurants and the beach. I really enjoyed it! Thank you.

What a sumptuous, indulgent, luxurious, unique place to stay. I loved the decadence of the rooms, the homely feel to the restaurant and lounge areas and the food and wine were great too. I'll certainly return.

We spent a weekend in Plett and stay at the Grand. Rooms were quirky and great, staff were attentive and service was superb. The hot water bottles in our bed was a lovely touch! We especially enjoyed their breakfast and dinners, which were superb! We'll certainly return!!

Had a lovely overnight here, and would have liked to stay longer in our beautiful, quirky room with huge bathroom and gorgeous toiletries, which thankfully were available to purchase! The view from our balcony was of the bay. Dinner was great, as was breakfast, our only minor moan being that the latter was slow in coming.

We know the Grand on the Beach well in Cape town aswell as the Grand in Camps Bay so we were very excited to go visit the Grand in Plett for breakfast with the children. There was only one other table of 2 when we arrived at 10.05am. However by 11.15 am, our experience was now spoilt. The children were... More

Our daughter and Son-in-law stayed here on their honeymoon and couldn’t stop talking about it so it was a must when we took a similar trip. We stayed here for 4 nights in March. The whole hotel was an eclectic mix from 1920 Paris. Our room was full of character and very quirky with a candelabra and matches on the... More

Very quirky and lovely hotel with attentive staff. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting. We upgraded our room since we were on honeymoon, and got a delightful apartment (the bath house) with a pool and 2 baths! Decoration of the hotel is stunning. Breakfast was delicious too!
