We went for a meal at the Grand, the atmosphere was great and the staff were very attentive , unfortunately they had the worst wine list with many of the wines on the wine list not available and none of the red wines per glass as advertised were available , this in town that has there own wine area??

Firstly do not be put off by the exterior - it looks a little run down sitting at the end of the street. Once inside - gosh - dark , moody , gothic, amazing. ! The room we had had two Juliet balconies with views out over the bay - one had a bath in front of the double windows....

Stayed in the bathhouse with private pool and two free standing baths. Filled one with hot and one with cold and alternated.....excellent water therapy. Room service with drinks and high quality mattress. Big flat screen and renovated room with private entrance in original style. Huge bath towels that invite you to dress like an ancient Greek after bath therapy.

Visited with my wife in November 2016 as part of our trip along the Garden Route. Plettenberg is a lovely little town and the Grand Cafe is located right in the centre of things. There are only a handful of rooms and ours - and I'm sure all of them - was fun, quirky, very clean and with a lovely...

This quirky boutique hotel is a hidden gem that must be seen. From arrival, the staff are more than welcoming, extremely knowledgeable about the local attractions and restaurants. The rooms are absolutely amazing! As for the turn down service with chocolates and hot water bottles.... I cannot recommend a place more highly!!!!!

We received a warm welcome despite a town-wide power cut and our upgraded room was filled with candles. The breakfasts are great and you can enjoy the superb view from the terrace over the beautiful bay.

The Grand is a beautiful, boutique hotel that's just made for couples looking to get away somewhere special for a few nights. It's also for people who don't want a traditional look and feel hotel, or a big chain hotel. It's not the cheapest option I'll admit. But the quality, the views(!!) and staff who couldn't have been more helpful...
