From the communication before arrival and the warm towels and orange juice when we arrived to the daily help with planning the day and making bookings, the service here is brilliant. The rooms and gardens are immaculate and the owners are so friendly and helpful. Great honesty bar and sitting room area. Close to the beach too. I can't fault... More

The guest house is conveniently located and easy to find. There are restaurants and shops in close proximity. Njabulo and I had an amazing time staying here. The owners are friendly, very helpful, warm and informative. The guest house is beautiful, well-looked after, inviting and the service is professional.

We had a lovely stay at Bayside and were looked after so well - a huge thank you. The rooms were perfect and the breakfast was delicious. Great location just a short walk to the beach. We walked along the beach to the fat fish for dinner and visited the elephant sanctuary in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying... More

My wife and I stayed for just two nights at the Bayside Lodge and really wish it could have been longer. Warm and welcoming, clean and tidy with the little extras that make it well-deserving of its four stars. Breakfast was superb. Adrienne and Bernie are running a gem and really are the hosts wih the most.

Wow thanks for your kind words Matt and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Plett is a very special place which makes hosting at a bed and breakfast so much more enjoyable. We are pleased you took our advice and hiked Robberg Nature Reserve and lunched at Bramon Wine Estate - both incredible places to visit! More

Enjoyed our four night stay very much. Owners very friendly and well informed regarding "things to do" in the area. The accommodation in Finch Cottage was excellent and we enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts. Would love to go back for a bit longer next time.

Great base in Plett for a really relaxed holiday! Attentive caring experienced manager/owner couple and staff, happy to help with luggage going up single staircase, relaxed made to order breakfasts, 10 minute stroll/2 minute car ride to flag/patrolled beach with equipment provided, good security in place

Thank you so much Jenny for this wonderful review. We were so thrilled to read "home away from home" and "relaxed breakfast" as this is what we want Bayside to offer our guests.

My wife and I stayed in the Finch Cottage recently. We felt at home from the moment we were welcomed by Adrienne and Bernie.
