Great location very close to the Cliff Path and to the Town with the ocean view!! Room was very big, nice fitted with big bathroom (bath and shower). Or you can easily use the jacuzzi / swim pool outside the room. Breakfast very good with plenty of choices. I have only stayed one night and that was great value for... More

We booked on a short notice through booking.com and had the luck to get the upstairs apartment for 4 adults. The apartment is really beautifully decorated (as is the whole house) and Bronwyn's welcome was so friendly. We felt immediately at home - true South African style ! I mentioned at the time of the booking that we celebrate my... More

OK, we do have to share but it seems very quiet at the moment! We had a small complaint about original room but the following day were moved to another (much better) room. Excellent service! This is in Nautilus House which is a touch more modern e.g. Showers in rooms as opposed to Victorian bath. Breakfasts are freshly cooked -... More

My wife and I stayed here on the way out to Plettenberg Bay in late December 2014. Unfortunately it rained the entire time we were in town so I can't attest to the beautiful views from the property although given the right conditions, I imagine they would be nice. The service was prompt and helpful and the included breakfast was... More

We had the front upstairs room with balcony overlooking the ocean which was a lovely space to view whales if there where any around. The room was showing signs of age and was quite scuffed and tired including the bathroom although the roll top bath was very comfy. Filling in breakfast order cards each day for the following days breakfast... More

Thank you for your review. Yourself and your husband were a “walk-in” and you personally selected this particular room from the other rooms shown to you. You were furnished with a discounted rate of R1500.00 per night (the normal rate is R2050.00 per night). During your 3 night stay with us, neither yourself nor your husband mentioned your disappointment about... More

We planned our first visit to South Africa months in advance. We could not wait for December to come. We started our vacation in Kwazulu Natal, then traveled the Wine route and Cape Town. Everywhere we went people were so friendly and helpful. Reception everywhere were warm and friendly and they made us feel so welcome. We had the most... More

Thank you for your comments. During December, we served our guests breakfast buffet style - so the guests helped themselves. If the guests wanted their eggs fried or poached this was organised for them. Upon receipt of bookings, either directly from guests or via online sites - a confirmation is forwarded to guests describing the room in detail (i.e. Room... More

We stayed in the penthouse for two nights which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, 3 balconies, a spacious lounge with lovely sofas. We were welcomed in the car park on arrival and shown to our rooms. It is worth noting that only one bathroom has a shower but the other has an elegant Victorian bath which was very comfortable....

The rooms were well equipped and clean. The only negative was that some rooms do not have showers which we would have preferred to a bath...We had very good service from Natasha and Bronwyn! It was a pleasure to stay there and will deffo return!

We stayed at Pelagus having booked a last minute trip to SA. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay and found the staff to be very helpful. They booked us dinner reservations at local restaurants which was great as we always got the best seat in the house!! They helped with day trips and ideas were really nice. Nothing was... More
