“Delightful B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2011

We arrived at Cottage Pie very early - 11 o'clock - but rang the reception to ask whether we could leave the car in their parking area. Perseverence greeted us so warmly and said the room was nearly ready and we were more than welcome to go to the room to leave our cases. The room was very clean and although basic very comfortable and homely. Beth, the manageress, was shopping when we arrived but introduced herself later and was also very friendly and helpful suggesting various places to visit. There is a lovely pool and garden area and this is where we had our breakfast. Lovely breakfast and so relaxing in that area. Upon Beth's suggestion we visited Tenikwa which is a wild cat conservation area. What an experience! We saw African wild cat, serval, caracal, cheetah and leopard. They are in enclosures but you go into these enclosures with a ranger and get up close and personal - with the exception of the leopard. Wow.
Although this B&B is part of a chain - Lion Roars - the personal attention and welcome received could not have been bettered. Thanks to Beth and her team.

When we arrived B&B was overbooked. Monique at the reseption was not able to find a solution for the first night. Manager was not availible. Our "luxury room" which appeared to be a converted garage the main window(only one!) and entrance of which was 2m from the car park. All guest could look in our room. White chipboard furniture, access the shower room through the wardrobe. Cheap,old toileteries and bare walls. We were very dissapointed. We got a bottle of wine, not really an adäquate excuse!
Next day we got an upgrade to a much better room in another villa.
There we had to change again the room after one day! Not really relaxed holiday!
Managment treated us unfriendly so we did not feel welcome.
Breakfast not bad, but not as good as other places we stayed in.
Very small garden & pool surounded by other properties.
I expect more from a five star accomodation.
Choose your room carefully!!!

A professionally-run guest house with B&B charm. Beth and her team go all out to make it a great stay, with cooked-to-order breakfasts, restaurant recommendations and reservations, and advice on where not to bother going. The property is a block from beautiful Robberg Beach, five minutes from Plettenberg Bay restaurants, and offers easy access to attractions along the N2. Main house rooms ("Cottage Pie suites") are smaller and open either onto the front courtyard or the pool yard, though fellow guests were so quiet there was never an issue with noise. Having stayed in both, we felt that what we gained from the "Cordovan Suites" next door (newer, bigger, AC, some with private courtyard or balcony) we lost in charm - you walk across the parking lot to get to them. This is a quality operation. If we find ourselves back in Plett, we'll return to Cottage Pie.

Cottage Pie, what a place of happiness, friendly staff and great service!
We had to share with everyone what an fantastic stay we had there during our December Holiday! We arrived very late, with a very unhappy 2yrs old, but we were greeted by Monique and she immediately helped us settle in and made us feel very much at home! During our stay the staff were fantastic, our room was so well cleaned and so fresh everyday! Thank you to all the Cottage Pie staff and to Monique for everything you did for us!! YOu guys are 5 star! And we cant wait to return back to Plettenberg Bay !!

Had a really good time. The guest house offers nice spacious clean rooms, a lovely pool, sweet garden and lawns and the most lovely ladies who are always smiling and keen to help. Walking distance to beach but need to drive or taxi to shops and restaurants.

Percy and Hayley were very welcoming. Nothing was too much for them. Ideal location for Robberg Beach and the nature walks. Loan of beach chairs and umbrella was much appreciated. Restaurant recommendation was spot on. Great stop along our honeymoon tour of SA and the petals on the bed were great!

We stayed in one of the superior rooms which was absolutely fantastic(1st floor with large balcony) Breakfast in covered area by swimming pool could not be faulted. 3 minute walk to the beach which has life guards in attendance. Restaurants not really within walking distance but Hayley will recommend and book restaurants and taxi. (she has good taste) Birds of Eden and Storms river estuary nature reserve well worth a visit.(one could spend all day at Storms river)
Hayley,Percy and staff could not do enough to make ones stay unforgetable.
