I was Privileged to be able to stay in Cornerway House Again this Year. - In the Verandah Room with the Wonderful walk in Bathroom which since its addition has tramsforned my stay due to the independence it has allowed me - Thank You SO MUCH IT Means the world. The Bedroom is a lovely airy Bright Space. The Bed is luxurious and the SLEEP QUALITY GLORIOUS. The Breakfast is fit for Royalty and the attention to detail superb. Nothing is too much trouble. Cornerway House to me is My home away from Home. I have reccommeded it to friends. it deserves Five STARS

Cornerway House is a little home from home in Plett, with comfortable rooms and a great breakfast, all in a lovely garden setting. We particularly appreciated the quality touches in the room - lots of good specially-blended filter coffee, cotton wool and earbuds and Charlotte Rhys products in the bathroom (what a nice change from chain store cheap stuff), and a much-needed electric blanket. They are also apparently pet-friendly, so a win for people travelling with dogs. Robin was most helpful and recommended an excellent dinner spot. Cornerway is also terrific value for money. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed for 4 days in January as part of our honeymoon and had a really lovely time. The owners, Dee and Robin were brill, very helpful with recommendations and the guest house itself was devine.......so pretty and secluded with a beautiful breakfast area overlooking the pool and a fab breakfast also!
We thoroughly enjoyed the brief time we spent there and would defo recommed it to others of all ages.

This lovely home is used exclusively as a guest house (the owners live next door) and what a house it is. There are nice gardens, a covered patio, a pool and all the interior comforts of home. Everything is very pretty and well decorated. We are here in fall, and I cannot imagine how glorious this place must be with the spring and summer blooms.

We have the largest room; there is a luggage rack for one suitcase but it is hard to find a spot for the other one, if you are a couple; we're using the chair. So the largest room is not huge is my point. Comfy bed pillows and nice bed linens but the bed is a bit hard for my taste; my husband is fine with it. Our bath is enormous, lots of hot water and a good strong shower. Wish the toilet were not up an 8" step up. Strong wi-fi throughout the house. Breakfast is the conventional cooked one.

The hosts could not be more charming or helpful. Would defintely stay here again.

We would like to thank Margaret for her review. We have just one point and that is Sage room where she stayed is not our largest by any means. It is the one she selected when booking on line.

We do hope we see her and her husband again.

Kindest regards,

Robin Pelham-Reid

We stayed at Cornerway House for three nights in March and liked it very much. It offers very comfortable accommodation: our room (the Cottage) was attractively furnished and set in a delightful garden. Guests also have the use of a lovely veranda and sitting room and a pleasant pool. But for us the guesthouse really stood out for its charming and helpful owners and manager, who made excellent suggestions for things to do and places to visit. Our time in Plett would have been far less enjoyable without their advice. We would certainly recommend this guesthouse.

Travelling solo and stayed for a few days, lovely room, beautiful gardens, excellent breakfast and the most helpful hosts you could hope to find. Nothing was too much trouble and the relaxed atmosphere in this well run establishment means a definite return visit.

We were doing a trip through South Africa and spent 4 days in Plett.. We stayed in Cornerway House, a lovely guesthouse with a beauful garden and a very friendly manager & owners. We stayed in the cottage room and can highly recommend this room => very quiet.
