located in urban area, 5 minutes from restaurants and beach, decent guesthouse, nice but fairly small room, good shower, good breakfast made to order, recommended for a one or two night stay. Only reason I do not give 4 stars it that it also does not have anything really special, or it must be the view at the sea from...

Dear Tigerwoods100 Many thanks for your review and yes your room was small but that was the only room available when you booked through Expedia. We compensate for the size of the room with the room rate charged which is way less than the average room rate charged by similar establishments in Plettenberg Bay. Glad to learn that it was...

We wished we could have stayed longer than 1 night. Winter is slow season so it was quiet and we got a very nice comfortable room that includes climate control (heat & ac), fridge with water & milk, coffee/tea maker.

We loved this B & B. Wonderful cozy rooms. This had the best breakfast of all of our B&B stays. The owners helped us find activities in the area, and advised us on wildlife as well. The price was incredibly reasonable.

Other places may have larger rooms, but rarely have we had an overall better experience. The proprietors were wonderful, making sure that every detail was taken care of. We had interesting conversation, and they gave us excellent restaurant and siteseeing recommendations. The bed was very large and comfy (trade-off for making the room seem small), and the breakfast was varied,...
