Stayed in various guesthouses during a 2 week trip in South Africa in November 2006, but Pelagus was the most beautiful of them. The decor is really nice and stylish. We stayed in the main room with a view over the sea and a balcony, and it was fantastic lying in the bed and seeing the ocean just a few metres outside. Apparently you can see whales from the room but we didn't see any while we were there (they were down the road however).
I'll agree with the other review which said it lacked a personal touch (the management are newly installed and I thought they didn't know the area that well) but overall I would definitely recommend it. Definitely get a sea view however, it's a bit of shame getting a room facing the back (where there are building works as well) when you are in such a beautiful location
