Beautiful view over the valley to the sea,handy location for the town, very comfortable lodges, pleasant secluded swimming pool together with excellent breakfasts.
John the proprietor, extremely helpful in advising, booking restaurants and tips on where to walk etc. We hope we will be able to visit again.

Great choice to stay in Plettenberg. We were making the garden route and found this a great place to stay (we stayed there for three nigths). Cosy and stylish rooms with a nice valley view and nice swimming pool.
John's tips are great about what to visit, restaurants, etc...

Great little place to stay whilst spending some time in Plettenberg, friendly staff and cute rooms. Lovely view, free internet, good breakfast, quiet and free from the noise of the city centre. Will recommend to anyone!

We spent 2 nights with our 4 children at Piesang Valley lodge... While this B&B is a little bit far from the Center, the location is beautiful, in the middle of nature... John welcomed us nicely and made sure we had a great stay, ensuring great service and giving us a lot of advice for the organization of our days around Plettenberg Bay... The arrival at the lodge is a little bit scary, particularly with kids, as you are welcomed by 3 rottweilers, but John reassured us immediately that they are the friendlest dogs, and our kids finally enjoyed their company a lot, and we must say John was entirely right...
The swimming pool is particularly nice and a great place to relax after a day of activities...
Everything was positive... One improvement point though... The rooms and the sheets are not very clean...
Net net, we really enjoyed our stay at Piesang...

We stayed at Piesang for a couple of nights and it really is worth staying here just to meet John. He gave us excellent advice on what to do during our stay and Plet was definitely a highlight of our trip to South Africa. The accommodation is quirky and offers amazing views of the landscaped garden, sea and mountains. Leonard will cook you an awesome breakfast that completely sets you up for the day. The lodge is very relaxed and provides a nice break from the hectic town centre in peak season. If you are after a B&B that is a little bit more original then you should definitely stay here.

As positive we noted that the sloping property allows for stunning views of the Plettenberg Bay, as the backdrop of the pool area. The price for a Bed & Breakfast is good, and there is free wireless internet (albeit outside of the cabin only!)

Negative points, however, were:
- wrong cabin concept where timber floor boards are shared with neighbouring cabins (i.e. their walking noise carries across!) and where bathroom and sleeping area are not isolated (i.e. bathroom sounds carry - which no couple appreciates!)
- lack of cleanliness in bathroom and under the bed
- continental breakfast buffet but very small serving size of cooked breakfast
- no designated reception area and confusion upon arrival (we were greeted by a lady in track pants)
- communal feel in kitchen and lounge area, dogs kept begging for food during breakfast

Great views and garden, with pleasant rooms. The guest receives warm hospitality and tailored advice about the local attractions. The area of Plettenberg bay is an excellent base to explore the garden route. Highly recommended- I would go back again.
