Certificate of Excellence

We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Gerald & Viv who went out of their way to be helpful. The accommodation was first rate, the views over the bay were to die for and well trained staff, supervised by Viv, gave us an excellent hearty breakfast each day. We would certainly stay here again!

The Hotel is one of the best considering location, cleaning, staff support and help, staff friendly and the view where you can see the ocean view from the room or from the hotel garden. The Hotel is very quite. The Hotel staff are all eager to support and help

We were met by Vivienne & Gerald for our 7 night stay and made very welcome. Vivienne gave us the tour of the facilities whilst Gerald collected our luggage from the car and delivered it to our room. The B&B is wonderfully designed, airy, bright and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is served in an area with great panoramic view of the bay and Roberg peninsular. The food at breakfast is of good quality and varied, served by excellent and polite staff. The rooms are spacious , clean and well equipped to meet all our needs. Vivienne had pre-booked us into a couple of local restaurants for the evenings and even booked us the transport - a great service. Over the week we visited many of the local attractions and explored Plettenberg on foot to get a real feel of the place. Despite the bad press SA gets for crime etc I have to say we never had a moments concern during our stay , obviously one takes sensible precautions but I have to say I have felt more concern in London & Sheffield than I did here. We had the odd glass of wine with Viv & Gerald prior to evening meals and shared our experiences of the day and plans for the next day, they were only too pleased to assist in making our stay as pleasurable as they could at all times. Gerald hand crafts pens as a hobby , we took the opportunity to purchase one for an Xmas gift for one of the family. If we return to SA (which is highly probable) we would have no hesitation of staying at the Bosavern again.

We stayed 2 nights at the Bosavern, which is wonderful, clean, bright and Vivien and Gerald are great hosts and couldn't have been more helpful and they have lovely staff. The breakfast was great with panoramic views across the bay. We can recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: If you have a room on the lower floor, you get to walk straight out on to the deck, pool and see the...

We stayed 3 nights at Bosavern and had the place to ourselves! Vivien and Gerald were great hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable and relaxed, and breakfast was a delight with panoramic views across the bay to go with the excellent choice of breakfast 'goodies'.
