Stayed for 2 nights recently.

Lovely location close to the centre of Plett.

Spotless clean room and adequate breakfasts.

Hosts were fabulous and could not do enough for us.

We had a wonderful stay at Swallows Nest. We were greeted by Gerald who is a lovely helpful person and his advice on restuarants to visit in Plett was excellent. We ate at The Med Seafood Restaurant, Ghillies and The Lookout (all were excellent). Would thoroughly recommend. We were there with my friends and my husband and we had the two double bedrooms en suite with private entrance overlooking garden and swimming pool with beautiful sea lagoon and mountain view. These were well equipped clean rooms even down to Microwave, crockery, umbrellas, beach towels ; sewing kit; pain killers; rennie's and eno's (for those hangovers after a few drinks in Plett) :-). Breakfast was fantastic and the eggs cooked to perfection (thanks Edith). I would definatley reccomened this friendly B&B and if I am lucky to visit SA in partcular Plett again I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose the 2nd floor rooms with sea and pool view - excellent views!

We stayed 3 nights at Swallows Nest and couldn't fault anything. We were greeted by Gerald who recommended things to do and great restaurants. The location of this property is excellent. Beautiful views of the ocean from our room and also from the breakfast room. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped with a fridge, microwave, crockery, umbrellas, beach towels etc.. Breakfast was a choice of continental and cooked all served with a smile. We enjoyed the beach at Plett and spent a day at Knysna too. We ate at The Med Seafood Restaurant, Ghillies and The Lookout (all were excellent). Would thoroughly recommend.

Great location, great price, great service and an exceptional breakfast! The hosts went beyond the call of duty to assist with bookings, recommendations and even to exchange incorrect clothing purchased on our behalf! Enjoyed every minute!

Room Tip: Top unit with balcony was spacious and has awesome view!

We found this wonderful B&B by chance and are delighted we did. Tirita made us very welcome, went out of her way to accommodate us when she really didn't have a suitable room and gave us her best room for our second night. Tirita provided us with suggestions of where to eat and what to see and do. She couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was terrific and if we were ever to return to South Africa and the Plettenberg Bay area we'd definitely return here.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Good room for first 2 nights and even better bigger room for third night! Nice little pool to cool off in and walking distance to shopping mall was handy. Hosts were lovely and very informative. Their recommendations for places to eat were all brilliant! Lovely breakfasts and friendly staff. Would stay there again - can't recommend it enough.

Stayed for one night at Swallow's Nest with 2 Canadian friends and my parents. We all loved it it. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious,clean, well equipped with beverages,small fridge, biscuits and a very welcoming glass of Sherry! :) We had a wonderful swim in the salt water pool.. . beach towels provided before enjoying drinks on our balcony with spectacular views towards Keurbooms Lagoon and beach. It is centrally located close to shops, restaurants and the beach. Breakfast the following morning was delicious with loads of fresh fruit,yogurts, breads,juices,tea and coffee as well as a full hot breakfast option. Service was excellent. Thanks Gerald for making our last day on the Garden Route so memorable! Hopefully we will be back again sometime soon .. in the meantime hope we can send some others your way!
