Dear Robin, Kathy, Phyllis, Gloria, Rachel, Zeb and Hercule. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your Verandah Room a week ago. It felt like home and we were treated like family. The room was spacious and we slept like rocks on the beds. The girls enjoyed the lovely garden and the dogs very much! The attention to detail in... More

Stayed for 10 days at the B&B and started feeling so comfortable that I forgot it was not home! Very comfortable and charming. Loved the warm towels and crisp sheets. Adorable patio. Very calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Upon entering the premises, you feel like you're transported into a lovely English garden. The rooms are an extension of that feel with beautifully decorated beds, lovely heated towels (much appreciated in winter!) and toiletries to meet all your needs. Breakfast is an experience on its own with the works (I'm talking Full English Breakfast). If you're ever in Plettenberg... More

Looked at many Guest houses in this area before booking with Cornerway House but this place really jumped out at me. Was travelling with a friend and introducing her to what the Cape province had to offer to a British Tourist and this place didn't disappoint. We booked two rooms the sage and the rose rooms for 3 nights. We... More

I have traveled much of the world and have stayed in virtually all categories of accommodations. Cornerway house truly is in a class of its own. The level of personalized service is unparalleled and is on par if not exceeding some world renowned chains such as the Shangri-La. Always friendly and accommodating the staff ensure that all their guests are... More

Three of us stayed 5 nights - we could not have been made more welcome. Robin and Kathy were extremely friendly and helpful giving us lots of useful local information. The breakfasts were A1 and the rooms very comfortable - the best B and B we used in our three week visit to SA!

We previously stayed in One Hanois when we went to Plett but unfortunately it is no longer in business. We booked at Cornerway house,(Tino terrace room) but were a bit disappointed because the room was really small and the double doors opened on a path to other rooms. On the pictures it looked like it has a private little courtyard,... More

Dear Jeanette. I am so sorry that your room was not up to your expectations. The cushions are in-fact an African rustic linen. We are pleased that you found your room clean. This of course is a major standard for us and also you had a good breakfast and found us helpful. Kind regards. Robin More

Location, car needed to access the house and to access food shops Nearest spar food shop had a rather limited range for our three days of self catering No duvets to be found, we need them under us to aid sleep But ... the garden is beautiful, so well kept, a lovely place to rest.
