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!

What an amazing place! I booked this hotel with 2 of my friends for a stop over in Plett and I can't say enough how great our stay was. It is definitely quiet season in Plett but this is the time to go - it's very quiet and peaceful :) The beds, although quite high, are very comfortable, especially the... More

Lovely feel to this hotel with great staff. There is something round every corner to capture your attention. We ate in two nights out of the three night stay which were very nice meals in a very beautiful position on the outer deck.

The moment I walked into this magnificent venue, I made a promise to myself that I would return as soon as I am able. The layout has been styled in such a way that upon entering the door, the "Grand" outside area beckons you to come and take a panoramic view of the blue ocean. The styling is opulent and... More

If you like old school, retro this setting will be perfect. There are also many different settings within the venue, which would make going back feel like a new experience. The staff is excellent. The food exceptional. We had fish and fillet respectively and both were perfectly prepared. Expect to pay more for the experience, but it is well worth... More

We stayed here for five days and loved it. I don't understand all the negative comments. We stayed in room 6 which is huge and has a view over the bay. Yes the shower takes a while to heat up and the beds are high but the other benefits far outweighed these minor issues. It is conveniently placed in Plettenberg.... More

This hotel has a great lunch venue overlooking the Plet lagoon . The menu changes on a regular basis and there is a great wine list on offer too . The design and interior of the resturant is funky and service was friendly and efficient . This is part of the Mr & Mrs Smith group and the legacy group... More

Really quirky hotel with unusual room configuration and and enormously high off the ground bed. They provide footstools to help you get onto the bed. But lovely decoration and terrific staff. The breakfast was excellent and the location for Plettenberg is first class

I loved the art-deco feel to the Grand Café during my two nights there in mid-April. We stayed in a large double-room with a stunning view of the bay and the marina. The room (and the entire hotel) had a small balcony overlooking the pool and bar area. The room also had a large ensuite bathroom with shower and bath... More
