We stayed at the Kingfisher Suite for two nights. Caroline and Judy were wonderful hosts and we had a wonderful time with them. The suite was extremely spacious, lovely bedroom with a splendid view of Plett, probably the biggest bathroom we've ever seen. Breakfast was delicious with a different menu every morning. Only drawback was a couple of dogs barking...

We spent two nights in the Nautilus rooms and will be back. The breakfasts were stunning and beautifully presented with lovely cutlery and Spode china. Judy and Caroline are a wonderful team and exceptionally friendly. The accommodation was superb. We'll be back!

A fabulous welcome with a large glass of wine and useful information about good restaurants. The house is only 100 metres from the beach and it is an enjoyable walk along the beach to a good fish restaurant and a hotel. We were provided with an excellent breakfast. One of the best!

Get the Kingfisher Suite. Beautiful room with terrace overlooking the sea. The gracious hosts will serve you drinks when you arrive and at 7 pm with the other guests. The house is beautiful with a pretty patio and pool where a wonderful breakfast is served. The hostesses could not be more gracious and our stay was wonderful throughout.

What a find! Halcyon House is luxury and hospitality personified. From the minute we arrived to home-baked scones and tea (on the house), to the nightly tray of chocolates and liqueurs, to the gourmet breakfasts provided by Caroline, we felt thoroughly pampered. The Nautilus room was fabulous too with underfloor heating, a most comfortable bed and high-quality linen. In short,...

We had a lovely stay and had the best breakfasts of all the guesthouses in which we stayed in SA. Caroline is a very lovely lady and was the perfect hostess. We hope to return next year.
