Delicious deluxe hot and cold breakfast in a large sunroom with an ocean view (would have been on roof deck... More

We loved this B & B. Wonderful cozy rooms. This had the best breakfast of all of our B&B stays. The owners helped us find activities in the area, and advised us on wildlife as well. The price was incredibly reasonable.

I'll recommend this venue to anyone looking for a cut above the rest. The breakfast was excellent, the rooms were in a good condition and had all the necessary facilities. Of the best in Plettenberg Bay!

We had interesting conversation, and they gave us excellent restaurant and siteseeing recommendations. The bed was very large and comfy (trade-off for making the room seem small), and the breakfast was varied,... More

When we were there the owners were away but they had employed a married couple as locum managers. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was cooked to our requirements and they were invariably cheerful. The room was a good size and there was a splendid bathroom with separate shower. It is only a few hundred yards from the...
