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.

When you arrive at 5pm during school holidays without a booking you can probably get into the Bayview. It's right in the middle of town and has reasonable views if you can get a front room. The rooms are plain vanilla but ok an service is attentive. Wifi wasn't available from our room but from the lobby. Very good value... More

An affordable hotel, especially when compared to the pricey guesthouses nearby. Room had a great view of the ocean and beach. Great location, just a walk away from an array of restaurants and bars. A standard room, nothing fancy, but good enough.

This is a very affordable 3 star hotel. It can be quite difficult to find good value accommodation in Plettenberg Bay, but I paid just R500 pn for a double room (2 persons). Breakfast is extra but at least they have free internet. The location is good too, being right on the high street.

We have often seen this hotel and thought it must be a great hotel to stay in. The location is superb - it is right in the middle of town where everything happens.. close to restaurants and shops and you can walk to the beach from here.... but it is a steep walk. We had a room with a sea... More

Good location close to restaurants, boutiques, groceries, short drive to Robberg Reserve. Our room was large, good plumbing, electric. Linens, furniture, carpets in decent condition. Basic toiletries & instant coffee provided. Balcony was a bonus. Very pleasant & helpful desk staff. Good value for average to good quality accommodation. Air conditioner did not work but the 2nd night they set... More
