Absolutely brilliant hotel felt like a king and queen for the night our room was amazing. Great restaurant. Lovely staff very helpful and attentive (but not in an intrusive way) nothing was too much to ask.

Beautiful location and fun and different (in a good way) room. Restaurant breakfast was terrific and reception staff very helpful and friendly. Very open bathroom (no shower door and open toilet area) - this was a bit uncomfortable for me. Also wish the pool area was a bit more open and had the view the restaurant does.

From the beginning you enter the "Grand" till the end of your stay the very friendly staff is looking after you at all time and exceeds your needs. Great interior design of the property and the decoration of the room is simply amazing. Nice food, amazing views. You need visit!

We will remember the fantastic view from the terrace and the rooms that were very special. It was just a short walk to the nice beach where the water temperature was perfect for a swim. Plettenberg is not far from Knysna which is also nice to visit with a number och restaurants and shops at the Waterfront.

I enjoyed the experience , although I would avoid a lengthy stay. This is a great place to enjoy a few nights. Beware of the noise levels due to the restaurant.TV's are small and could be improved. i would recommend a stay but do not have too high an expectation

Room Tip: Rooms can tend to be noisy as they are postioned above or close to the restaurant and have not been...

We loved our large room with the patio and outdoor shower. The view from the dining room was impeccable so breakfast was always something to look forward to. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Plus the location was perfect for us to walk everywhere in town!
