Originally planned to stay for a few nights but extended as it was ideal for our needs. First room was good, adequate size and large bathroom. Free wireless internet with good connection. For our extended stay we were moved to a different room which was larger with a kitchenette. Slightly squeaky celling fan and much weaker wireless signal but this... More

We travelled along the Garden Route, staying in many guest houses and hotels and this was my least favourite. We booked a luxury room but I couldn't work out what granted it this status other than it having a bath as well as a shower. The rooms lack modern air-con - only ceiling fans, and we had water dripping through... More

We had a one night (fortunately only one night) stay here and were very disappointed on arrival after the pics on the website. The pool was literally a padding pool and dirty. The room was very dark if you had the curtain shut across the patio door, and you needed the curtain shut otherwise there was no privacy into the... More

It's a quite and peaceful place with very clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. The pool area is nice and our room had a balcony, which was nice. It's in close proximity to area attractions and the breakfast was delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return if I find myself in Plettenburg again.

After reading the blurb on the website and on Expedia, we booked a 'deluxe suite' and were looking forward to our stay here and having a drink on our balcony on arrival after a safari and a long drive. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case as we were given a standard room and the owners of this place... More

Located in Plettenberg Bay on South Africa's Garden Route, this is an excellent place to stay, located close to beach and whale boat excursions. Plettenberg Bay resort has a nice array of bars and restaurants to choose from. The lovely sandy beaches are a delight as is the wildlife close by at sea. Managed to see seals and humpback whales...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled behind the dune of Robberg Beach, Crawfords Guest House is a short walk from both of Plettenberg Bay’s main beaches. The five bedrooms are elegantly designed and decorated with spacious en-suite bathrooms giving you the freedom to stretch out and pamper yourself leaving you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Each luxury room has its own deck area and separate entrance. One does not have to venture far to relax as we have our own swimming pool with sun-tanning loungers positioned around it. ... more   less
