I stayed in Bayview for three days. The staff is lovely and devoted. The rooms are nicely decorated, cleaned off everyday and the view from the balcony are mind-blowing. Well located and perfect hotel for a couple.

Many thanks for your lovely review. We are fortunate to have a great team working at our hotel. Our location and views, as you point out, are difficult to beat. We hope to have you stay with us again in the future. Kind Regards Bayview Hotel Management More

I stayed in Bayview for a a day. The experience is really bad. Rooms are too chilled and heater was not even working. There was not complimentary drinking water, and dust was clearly visible in the tap water. No towels were available in the room. Pathetic room service, stinking smell from the corridors. Highly not recommended

I had booked directly through them a room for three night over new year eve so very busy time. When I arrived to check in, they told me they had given the room away because I didn't pay a deposit. The issue is that on all the emails we exchanged they never asked me to pay a deposit. The 2... More

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
