“Amazing Stay”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

From the beginning you enter the "Grand" till the end of your stay the very friendly staff is looking after you at all time and exceeds your needs. Great interior design of the property and the decoration of the room is simply amazing. Nice food, amazing views. You need visit!

We will remember the fantastic view from the terrace and the rooms that were very special. It was just a short walk to the nice beach where the water temperature was perfect for a swim. Plettenberg is not far from Knysna which is also nice to visit with a number och restaurants and shops at the Waterfront.

I enjoyed the experience , although I would avoid a lengthy stay. This is a great place to enjoy a few nights. Beware of the noise levels due to the restaurant.TV's are small and could be improved. i would recommend a stay but do not have too high an expectation

Room Tip: Rooms can tend to be noisy as they are postioned above or close to the restaurant and have not been...

We loved our large room with the patio and outdoor shower. The view from the dining room was impeccable so breakfast was always something to look forward to. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Plus the location was perfect for us to walk everywhere in town!

We stayed in this hotel for four nights, December 11-15, 2013. After seeing the photos online, we knew we were in for a treat. The location was perfect, quick access to N2, shopping, Lookout Beach, Central Beach, restaurants galore.

Room 5 was exceptional though small in comparison to what we saw in the adjacent rooms. The high bed was super-comfy. There is no shower but the huge tub with handheld faucet was a sensual delight. The decor pleased every sense, no detail was left out. The view was breathtaking and morning coffee on the balcony was a must. Snacks and bath salts and a rose beside the bed, delightful. A bottle of bubbly in celebration of my husband's 50th birthday was an exceptional touch.

We ate breakfasts here (pancakes with apples was delicious), and had late night appetizers. Nothing disappointed about the food and the service was always so personable and prompt.

Parking was amply available on the street and did not cost anything.

We were SO pleased we decided to spend some extra days in Plett. The accomodations were perfect but the surrounding areas were hard to beat for natural beauty. Robberg Park is a MUST, as is Keurboomstrand Beach. There is a lady at KBeach that sells the most delicious homemade samosas! The people here, EVERYONE we came across from gas attendants to shopkeepers to parking "security" at the beaches were the kindest, most courteous folk we have ever encountered.

A big thank you to Thelma at Lookout Beach who "protected" and washed our car to a sparkling shine (after having been on rainy red clay roads for HOURS). People talk about the crime and lack of safety in South Africa but I have NEVER felt safer or more cared for while travelling anywhere.

We will return to both the area and this hotel. Definitely.

Very friendly staff made every effort to welcome us and accommodate any requests. Rooms were wonderfully artistic. Hotel location a stone's throw away from restaurants and shops, and a short walk to the beach.
