Lovely surroundings. Tranquil and peaceful. Nice rooms and common areas. A lovely B & B. While not on the sea the surroundings and gardens make up for that. Wish there was A/C and good wi-fi speed. However in the end we did not really mind the lack of it.

Thank you for your comments, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do not normally need air-conditioners in our area, but had a terrible heatwave in January this year. I must admit, I also wished that I had an air-conditioner! Luckily we normally have much milder weather. We hope that you come to visit Fynbos... More

Very positive surprise to find this stately yet homely overnight accomodation on our way from Cape Town via Plett to Joburg. We definitely want to come again - next time with better weather and more time.

Fantastic property and hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the house. Superb location set high upon the ridge with views over the sweeping valley below- lovely secluded swimming pool and outside terrace. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts made us feel very welcome.Only down side was that we felt for the price of the room air conditioning should... More

Thank you for the review, and we hope that the rest of your honeymoon was wonderful. We do not have air-conditioners in order to comply with Eco-friendly grading of companies we have membership with.

Very pleasant stay at Fynbos ridge. Relaxing, staff very very kind (everybody), food excellent (wonderful breakfast), rooms very clean and beautiful surroundings. Close to Plettenberg beaches. All this area is great to visit.

Wonderful hospitality, breathtaking views and so peaceful yet just 10 minute drive into Plattenberg Bay. Food was outstanding, dinner wasn't offered every night, but we ate there every time it was, it was so good! The children were disappointed that the swimming pool was very small and rather too green, they didn't really go in it, not that it mattered.... More

Thank you for the great review. We are so sorry about the pool, the pump broke over the public holiday period, and we were only able to get parts when the pool business re-opened. Needless to say the pool is back in sparkling condition. We hope that you visit us again, and to the little piano player - keep it... More

Was a great stay in a great resort - wished we could have stayed for longer. Price in relation to five star rating can be perhaps reviewed, especially for families. Could look at extra incentives in the price.

Our hosts were warm and welcoming and so accommodating! Very comfortable beds with well furnished and equally comfortable serviced cottages. Beautiful peaceful surrounds; all in all - I'll be going back!

Excellent service, great position and superb accommodation make for an all round great stay. We particularly enjoyed the great food served up by Brian, although we probably ate too much. Any advice or recommendations we needed we welcomed with a smile and prompt response. The cottage was very peaceful for us as a family, it felt really quite private. Note... More

Thank you for the lovely review! We appreciate it. We are planning to extend the WiFi coverage (it is only the cottages that are currently out of range), so within a short while the boosters should allow access to the internet from all our units.

We stayed in one of the self catering cottages with our little daughter for three nights. The view from our veranda has been beautiful and we loved that we could do our own braai. The kitchen is well equiped with everything you need for cooking and we loved the open fireplace in the living room for cosy nights. Breakfast is... More

Very comfortable cottage with great views and peaceful outlook but still close to Plattenburg. After 2 weeks travelling it was a good chance to have some quiet private time. A warm welcome, good restaurants booked for us by our hosts and great breakfasts.
