Grand Africa certainly understands the meaning of customer service. I walked in to a historical setting and a very friendly reception desk. I was greeted immediately and shown my room. The room was equipped with accents of Victorian style and elegance with modern amenities tastefully represented throughout the space. The view was breathtaking from the mini balcony situated just above... More

This place is outrageously cool!!! The rooms are large, cool and so different, there were free snacks which was a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly. We highly recommend this boutique hotel. Please give it a try!!!

Spent an idyllic evening on the patio by the fire during our honeymoon. Being winter season we had the entire restaurant to ourselves and the friendly little cat. Loved the candlelit decor, gorgeous patio views, and the frangrant Grand Rose cocktail.

Excellent accommodation. Quirky rooms. Staff were fab. Great advice about local area and breakfast good. Seemed strange at first after being in very modern accommodation but really didn't want to leave. Recommended.

Unfortunately the rooms were fully booked so we couldn't take advantage of the art deco rooms, however, we were able to have dinner there. What a lovely atmospheric venue.

We had visited numerous times before - on holiday - for breakfast of dinner, always loved the place, the staff and the food. So when we had a few days to visit Plett for a wedding we thought we'd stay there rather than with friends.. Overall we were satisfied; staff, location and food still excellent but a few gripes about... More

Everything works well and attention to creature comfort detail. Multilayered and wonderfully eccentric. Excellent team and everyone works professionally with soul. The food is excellent and the rooms take me back to my gran days, with splashing of Grand things, diva stuff and sensible ways of travelling. The place is the opposite to the generic, standard, multi copied corporate hotel... More
