I must recommend Cornerway House. We stayed one night on our journey to Grahamstown and enjoyed it so much that we booked another night on our return journey.

Staff and food great. Good position for town and beach. Accommodation drab,uninspiring and very cold. We felt that the room should have more daylight. Gardens and car parking excellent.Inadequate heating in bathroom for winter as taking a shower was practically impossible as it was to cold without any heating. If we came back we would not accept the same room... More

Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed our breakfasts. Thank you for bringing the chilly bathroom to our attention, we do our best to make our guests comfortable with the air-con and heated towel rails. It has been unseasonably cold in Plett. Do hope you come visit again. More

Cornerway House provided the perfect refuge for us after a long trip down to Plett from London. Lovely Kathy did all she could to ensure we had what we needed. She went that extra mile to make sure we were ok and enveloped in care and love. Cornerway House is the perfect place to base yourself for a Plett experience.... More

I just stayed one night but truly enjoyed every little detail .... The Flowers in the garden, the well selected curtains, pillows, paintings... The friendly staff, the good breakfast. I felt pampered.

Kathy & Karen were very welcoming in their beautiful guest house. The room was comfortable, breakfast delicious. And we were able to use the kitchen, which is very convenient. It was a really good stay at Pelettenberg !
