I was my pre-marriage lunch arranged by my best man. Interesting decor. Interesting menu. Fantastic view. My grilled Calamari was tasty but served Luke warm to cold. My main course served was not what I ordered. When this was corrected the steak was fine. The chap opposite me also ordered steak, medium done; his ranged from almost raw to well... More

I had a suprise visit from my best friend and I decided to take her for a cocktail at this beautiful restaurant, this place is not your average bar slash fine dining eatery. The view is absolutely stunning and the decor is chic victorian style. We did not have dinner but we had the most amazing cocktails. As my friend... More

Fantastic location with very friendly staff. The hotel has a kitsch charm. They even sent me back my jacket which I left behind. Massive thanks! The pool area is nice and the beach a short walk away. We experienced a blackout while we were there, apparently they are common in SA, no sweat though they cooked our dinner on the... More

The smell of food on entering this hotel was off putting. Other reviews have mentioned the quirky rooms which were fine by us as they were different and we slept OK in our 'high' beds. What let the Grand Café down was the restaurant. We booked in for dinner that first night and once was enough. Our server it turned... More

We loved our stay here, when we were on the Garden Route last month. It wasn't the cheapest on offer, but the room was full of character and very quirky. Great if you like something a little different. Everything we needed was provided, and more. The bathroom was huge with twin basins and a twin shower, as well as a... More

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
