We enjoyed our short stay (two nights) very much, next time we will stay longer and book a room with seaview.
J.P. and Petra, thanks again for your hospitality.

The room was too small, but this was the only negative part of the hotell. We got nice tip about Birds of Eden and Cat Park, they were marvelous. We had a very good lunch in an Italian style restaurant, which we heard from the host. Thank you.

Reading what the guest says it is clear that he had the ratings i.e. 1-5 the wrong way around. He scored for instance, cleanliness as 1 out of 5 whereas he said he arrived at a"clean and friendly" hotel. Also that the small room was the only negative aspect of his stay at this hotel.

Great views. Great location. Great breakfast. Great hosts.
Five star B&B.
JP gave us very good information about what to do in the area and where to eat.
Don't forget to go to Enrico's. Good food and an incredible location. Unbelievable sunsets while you're eating
Don't look any further when you're in Plettenberg Bay.

Excellent guest house offering superb breakfast with hosts that care about your stay and offering good advise regarding the area, restaurants
etc. without being intrusive. We can not imagine a B&B exceeding the quality of Thanda Vista.

We spent the weekend in Plett early December to visit with friends who were out from New Zealand. I searched internet for reasonably priced accommodation and found Thanda Vista and so glad I did. The location of the Guesthouse is lovely - not in the heart of the business of Plett but close enough to everything with the added bonus of a beautiful, peaceful setting. The rooms had all that you needed and the breakfast has to be one of the best we've had in a B&B.
JP and Petro were wonderful hosts - we would definetly recommend this establishment to anyone.
