Arch Rock Seaside Accommodation
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We have visited this venue for the last 6 years and it just gets better and better every year. apart from the paradise setting the owners run the resort as if all the visitors are part of their family. Weather is good most of the year and with so many fantastic activities in close vicinity, even a rainy day has its advantages. You don't need a holiday, you need Arch Rock Seaside accommodation, anytime of the year.

Room Tip: All the rooms have their advantages. seaside great views. forest cabins great atmosphere.

We stayed in the Seafront Guesthouse, which is basically all one needs in life... a nice bathroom, small kitchen, and bedroom that opens up to a big balcony with AMAZING view over the sea...the layout of the guesthouse is brilliantly done! It's also basically all windows at the front, which is great with a view like that. The place is about a 10 min. drive from Plett, so it is not in the middle of the hustle & bustle of town; but it's really great for a relaxed weekend away at the sea.
We stayed 'in the hustle and bustle' for a bit, and then stayed at Arch Rock for two nights, which was a perfect combination!

We stayed in the Seagulls cottage. The ocean view is incredible! The cottage has two bedrooms and a decent sized kitchen and living space. The property itself is a bit old and run down, but comfortable enough for us with two kids. There is beach access and we are within walking distance to the Enrico's restaurant. Other than that, it's a bit secluded. My only complaint is that it's pretty chilly during the winter months. The cottage has a portable gas heater that provides some heat, but not to the whole cottage. It is frequently warmer outside than inside (and it's cold outside). For the price during the low season, we are satisfied with the choice. The view makes it completely worth it!

Management and staff are really helpful.

Arch rock is similar to a time share in a way that kitchen is fully equipped. The location is OK, it's right off the beach but no a lot of stuff around. We normally went to Plettenberg Bay for dinner then return to the cottage to sleep for the night. We were there in September, so it's winter time. The room is spacious, a living room and a bedroom, but it gets chilly at night.There is a fire place but the firewood was somehow wet. After half an hour to put up the fire, i just gave up. The bathroom has the open floor design - first time i saw in all teh hotels, so if you need privacy, you will have to close the door to the bedroom. We stayed in the forest view room, so no ocean view. The staff is friendly, that is when you can find them. We got there late at night around 6:30PM, the office was closed with no sign as to how to get help. There is a phone number, but we are international travelers with no local cell phone handy. We walked around the property and knocked on a door to try out luck. We were lucky to find out that's the owner's son who ended up helping us to check-in. The room we stayed had few issues: missing of a light bulb and a leaking hot water bag. As we left the property earlier in the morning (before the office opens) and returned late (after teh office closes), it was hard to get these small isssues addressed. I ended up leaving a note in the room on the 3rd day to get them fixed. I like the open and spaciousness of the room, but rate it with 3 starts as a result of having difficulties to find the staff as you needed them.
