Bosavern Guest House
Ranked #21 of 85 Plettenberg Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 5, 2010

We stayed at Bosavern Guest House for six nights in the middle of our three week holiday in South Africa. What a good choice we made. Beautiful room, lovely deck and pool with amazing views, top class breakfasts served by delightful staff. But most of all our hosts Gerald and Viv were so welcoming and helpful. Whatever they advise on where to visit or where to eat, go with it, we were never disappointed! I am sure we will return.

The service we`ve received from Vivian and Gerald was excellent.
Not only the rooms were gorgeus, the panoramic views of it were great, perfectly cleaned and with details out of the standard.
Also they were envolved in our satisfaction, they know many different types of activities to do, they don`t look at their watchs when we need this information.
All their suggestion were excellents, and our stay with them was wonderfull for us.

Bosavern is a lovely guest house with phenomenal views of Plett. Though ultimately what made our stay were Viv, Gerald and the very warm Bosavern team. They are so friendly, that we felt right at home.

At first, I considered staying right at the beach in Plett. Though I discovered that everything is really so close together anyways, and Bosavern is really much more private and relaxing than staying at the Beach.

This was one of our first B&B stays, rather than at a hotel, and the service & tranquility really are well worth it.

This was part of our 4 stop South African stay. All of the B&Bs (Capetown, Franschoek, Plett, and Swellendam) were sourced from tripadvisor, and we were very happy with the overall result.

Very friendly place and could not have done more to make our stay pleasant. Is a bit of a walk from the town centre but their recommended taxi was efficient and reliable.

Booked over the phone on recommendation from another guesthouse and had no idea what we would turn up to. It was a warm welcome from Viv, a huge modern room and bathroom opening onto the pool, terrace and great views. Enjoyed a good few drinks with fellow guests and then followed Viv's recommendation for dinner in town at La Med. An unexpected - but very enjoyable overnight stay.

We booked last minute to go to Plett so could only get 1 night at Bosavern and after staying at the awful Forest :Lodge (which has same grading and same price) Bosavern was a delight.
From the moment you are greeted by the friendly staff you feel at home immediately.
The rooms are bright and big with plenty of cupboards. The linen is crisp and the towels are fluffy and clean.
The information booklets in the rooms provide so much information about Plett.
The breakfast was tasty with the layout having such fanatical attention to detail. Gorgeous cutlery and crockery.
Beautiful views over Robberg.
So sorry our stay was so short but we will definately be back,

We stayed at the Bosavern Guest house for 3 nights (21-3 Dec) and really enjoyed the modern clean lines in its style and the location which was very handy for shopping and eating out. We found Gerald and Viv's knowledge of the area very helpful and used many of their suggestions including a trip to the Knysna Elephant Sanctury which was amazing. Would recommend staying here to others.
