“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

A wonderful short stay (only overnight) in a comfortable room with breathtaking views of the beach - we particularly enjoyed the sunrise and the long walk all along the beach! Very friendly and professional staff, clean, comfortable room. Breakfast in the dining room was good, and a nice crackling fire in the lounge kept us nice and comfy. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at Periwinkle for 2 nights and wished we never had to leave!

The location is a short walk (steps really) from Robberg Beach, perfect for early morning beach runs, afternoon swims and evening strolls.

The infinity pool and deck chairs allow unobstructed views of the crashing surf and the 'honesty bar' mans you never have to go without a craving. The kitchen fridge is stocked with drinks which are self serve, guests are just asked to fill out a receipt to charge their room later. Brilliant!

Every afternoon, the staff make some sort of sweet treat - we had milk tart and a fridge cheesecake during our stay which is set out with afternoon tea for guest to enjoy.

There are only 7 or so rooms in the whole lodge so it feels really private and quiet. The only time we really saw other guests was in the morning at breakfast time.

Breakfast was delicious, a full spread of croissants, breads, cheeses/hams, fruit, fruit juice etc. The staff come around and take your order to make your eggs/bacon/toast choice fresh for you. They also do teas, coffees, cappuccinos and really go out of their way to satisfy every desire.

We discovered the sauna on the bottom floor which is private for 2 people - great way to detox after enjoying all the delicious seafood Plett restaurants have to offer.

I would highly recommend Periwinkle and will be going back as soon as possible!

Room Tip: The standard room has a much lower price as it does not have a private balcony. If that does not mat...

We arrived on a rainy 3rd April and left on a stunning 6th April (4 nights) and couldn't have found a better place to stay. If you like beach views, Periwinkle Lodge has them in spades. We had room 4 which incidently we found out to be the honeymoon room. It was a superior room, although I think all the rooms would be fantastic here. What set it apart was the view from the balcony.

The lodge itself is run by Pascalette who greets all the guests at breakfast each day and gave you hints and tips on what to do and made restaurant reservations on your behalf. The breakfast was a small buffet selection and then a choice of bacon, eggs, mushroom and tomato cooked how you liked them. To top it off you got to sit and look at the magnificent bay that the lodge looks out onto.

The room itself was a nice size, not the biggest but thats not what we are bothered about really. The staff could not do enough to help and were friendly and accommodating. A hidden gem as it comes up as a lodge and not a hotel on Tripadvisor, but you couldn't wish for more perfect accomodation!

Room Tip: There is no lift in the lodge so if you are not good at walking up stairs, ask for a lower room.

We found the B & B on the homepage of Hilda Lustenberger. We already traveled with here, we knew that she has always good overnight stays. We were right. Perfect support by Pascalette by making reservation.

Great place to stay and such personal service from Pascalette, Rosey and Maurice. I would highly recommend it . You can also get surfing lessons from the lovely Clayton and it has a great chilled out vibe

Room Tip: Only thing missing is a wine list
