Swallow's Nest Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #50 of 83 Plettenberg Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We stayed here for nights in April 2012. We walked in late in the evening and were shown 3 gorgeous room to choose from.
Since it was off season we got a good discount from Terete/ Jerry. The room was well equipped and comes with complementary Sherry.
We took 2 rooms which was huge as with attached bathroom. The room had a heater and bathroom had towel warmers. The B&B has a nice garden with a small swimming pool.
The hosts Gearld, Terry and Terete were very polite and helpful with information. One of the best breakfast spread throughout my travel in South Africa.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on top floor, view of Plettenberg Bay.

This guesthouse is great value and look forward to returning. We had a ground floor room overlooking the pool. The bathroom was huge with a bath and shower. There is a walk in wardrobe with safe. Also fridge/freezer, microwave, plates, cutlery, glasses etc, complimentary bottles of water, tea/coffee making facilities. Large bedroom with TV, own private patio area. Lovely pool with towels provided.Spotlessly clean room with fan. Great breakfast, we stayed at 7 guesthouses on our 3 week stay in SA and this was the best breakfast. Off road parking, a great place to stay and good value.

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.
