we had a wonderful stay at the bayview hotel in plettendberg bay.
The hotel is newly renovated ( in 2011) and has a wonderful atmosphere. The location is excellent, near the shops and on top of a quaint shopping center with lovely shops.

The hotel is conveniently located in the main rd. I found the staff very friendly, willing to help and well informed about the area.

I got a groupon deal, which allowed me to stay at half price. At this price, I felt like I got good value for my money.

A single criticism would be the noise of main rd, although this is beyond the Control of the hotel.

If you are looking for the buzz and excitement of plett at night, I would recommend this hotel.

The rooms have hospital respectively youth hostel flair. It's clean but very cheaply equited. Would be okay for half the price and adequate service. The price is very high. More than 1000 rands per night. The service is poor. The staff was uninterested. At first the gave us an uncleaned room. We got a new one (no apology but) although they told us before that there was only one room left, yet.

The mattresses where bad, the street loud. We just stayed because it was already night and everything else was sold out. We left as early as possible.

Never again.

The sign at the reception desk said 'Ring Bell For Service'. There was no bell. An omen?
The hotel, actually, isnt that bad, its just not that good. If you're looking for Travelodge standard, it'll do. But it wasn't very clean - unswept floors in the breakfast room, dirty woodwork on the balcony. The tea making facilities had no milk, just powdered gunk. No fridge. Old TV, no remote.
Beds and bathroom comfortable enough, location ok, maybe 15 minutes stroll to the beach and right in town for shops.
But overall it just felt a bit tacky. The staff were polite but indifferent. No outside seating area except the (not very clean) bar patio. Bar usually closed anyway.
Breakfast was an open buffet much visited by the local birds so if you don't mind sharing your cheese with the feathered friends, you'll be ok. Rolls/bread sometimes turned up, sometimes didn't. At best, very mediocre.

The bayview hotel has an execellent location on Plettenbergs main road. Althought the main road causes noise, it gets pretty quiet at night and we only noticed it in the morning. Get on of the rooms with only a partial window view, this limits the noise. The views however are spectacular, the rooms are basic but very clean and its a very short walk to restaurants and bars. Most of all we appreciated the when checking out after spending 3 night here, the reception informed us of a "stay 3 nights, pay 2 nights" special that month.

A trade-off between the streety noisy and the view, location, cleaniness and pro-active staff makes this hotel a decent place to stay.
