Beautiful Location with an excellent breakfast. We stayed at the Periwinkle Lodge for 1 night in October and we were upgraded to a 3rd floor suite which had beautiful views over the pool and beach. The room had a nice deep free standing pool and the guest lodge also provided a beach bag for us with towels in. The breakfast...

We stayed at Periwinkel in September for 4 nights and received a very warm welcome and tour of the lodge. Our rooms was very comfortable, clean and had the most amazing view. The breakfast was outstanding - such a generous, fresh assortment to chose from in the buffet with orders for a cooked breakfast to follow. Nothing was too much...

The Periwinkle Lodge was modern, clean, and very friendly. The lodge is on the bay so views from the room and the common area are great. The breakfast each day was well presented and very good, with lots of choices. The best part was the staff: everyone were friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed here for just 1 night in April, ‘15 on our way to Amakahla Game Reserve. Although our itinerary didn’t allow it, we would have been happy to stay several more days. The Periwinkle is a top-notch small guest house and would be an excellent choice for a beach holiday. It is located in an upscale...

We stopped over at this B & B on our way back from Cape Town- we found the rooms clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and we found the staff to be very attentive and most welcoming. Would highly recommend.

A lovely boutique hotel on the seafront over looking Plettenberg Bay. The staff were very friendly. The main area was very pleasant. We had a balcony but the bedroom was very small and basic but the view made up for this.
