I suspect that many people who design hotel rooms never stay in them themselves ... that's why they are so often not user-friendly! - nowhere to put a suitcase except the floor! (For the over 60s, it's too far to bend!) There was a small table that could have been used, but it's top was .... glass! So not suitable... More

We stayed here last year December and didn't have a booking. We were very lucky to get the honeymoon suite (not badly priced for the size). The room was very subtle on the eye until you look closer... I work in the industry and should maybe not comment as I know how things work. This hotel was definitely a gem... More

The hotel is ideal situated opposite on the main beaches, close to the departure point for boat tours and near several restaurants, bars and shops. We moved here from the place we were originally staying in due to the much better location and quieter rooms. None of the rooms have a sea view but are modern, clean and comfortable, with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We hadn't booked in advance and had checked out some places on tripadvisor which we didn't like when we saw them or were too expensive. This had an offer on at R800 self catering and a sea view which was unremarkable. The room was sparsely furnished but clean although it wasn't cleaned or restocked... More

We had a room with a stunning view of Plettenberg Bay. A large luxurious room at only R900 per night - no breakfast included. The hotel was very empty and It must be expensive to maintain a building of this nature in the centre of Plett with low mid winter occupancies. We enjoyed our room and view so much that... More

I had the pleasure of staying in this cute little hotel. Me and my fiance just wanted us time. the hotel manager was kind to upgrade us to the honeymoonsuite. This little gem is in the heart of the village close to everything in walking distance of the beach. Staff is well informed about the surrounding areas. Will definitely be... More

We stayed in the Bayview Hotel during the time we have done a few hikes in the surrounding area. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly and the room were clean and tidy. In my opinion staying for one night is perfect. Stretching the stay to 3 nights becomes a challenge. The room I stayed in haven't had any... More

My daughter stayed here during Plett Rage. Although the room was fully paid for 6 months in advance, the hotel still demanded that my daughter, upon arrival, pay a deposit of R1500. It has been three weeks and they still have not refunded the deposit, even after numerous phone calls.
