Perfect location on the main street in a quiet town. Clean and spacious rooms, wonderful service. No complaints whatsoever, highly recommended. Adequate parking facilities and free parking make it easy to explore the garden route. I would stay here again if I went back to Plettennurg.

Staff were friendly and helpful. However, first impressions were a bit mixed as although the room was spacious and the view of the bay was nice the bathroom was... More

The TV was from the 70's small 15" but one of those massive boxes. Not that great when most of the pubs were closed. If... More
