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.

Lovely comfortable accommodation with the best hosts! We spent two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts and will always do their best to make sure your stay is lovely.

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. It was great to have you stay for five nights and you certainly managed to include so much of what Plett has to offer - including a... More

My wife and I stayed in the Finch Cottage recently. We felt at home from the moment we were welcomed by Adrienne and Bernie. One will have to go a long way to find hosts who are friendlier, warmer, more caring or more knowlegeable about their area than they are. Finch Cottage offered us everything we needed. We enjoyed the... More

I spent two nights at Bayside Lodge in March 2015. My room was lovely, the breakfasts were great, and Adrienne and Bernie made sure that I got all the information I needed on restaurants, things to do, and places to go in and around Plettenberg Bay. They could not have been more pleasant or helpful. This was a real find.
