Laid back Southern Cross

Disabled persons view: Good access with the odd step to your room/dining room.

Johanna? was very welcoming and is an asset to this B&B. We didn't see anything of the owners.

This is a place to relax, it is so laid back as to be almost horizontal. Breakfast is served 8.30 to 10 literally, because even if you arrive at 8.30 you probably wont get it until 10! The breakfast menu is also more limited than some places.

The rooms are smaller than most places we have stayed but there was a sitting/dining room for the guests sole use. Lovely to lie in bed and hear the crashing waves on the beach which is a few yards away across some boardwalks. Nice grounds with lots of Old World charm to sit in and look at the sea.

Great location right on beach

The location is fantastic with the beach and Indian Ocean outside the garden. Good restaurants in Plettenberg and lots to do. A nice place to relax before flying home.

Our room was very disappointing though. It was small though nicely appointed but the bathroom was poor with only a shower, and the place itself could do with a lick of paint. Very nice staff and nice relaxed feel however with an honesty bar. We saw whales at breakfast!

Difficulty getting additional supplies of tea and coffee for the room and only pots of UHT milk.

Very homely with a great view across the Bay

A very relaxing place. An attractive building with a very pleasant patio and a lawn which stretches right to the cliff top.

There is easy private access to the beach, where swimming is possible. The Lemon Grass was recommended as a place to eat and proved very good.

Southern Cross Beach House review

Great location next to the beach, with hosts who were very welcoming. Within minutes of our arrival our car had been washed, and we had made arrangements for washing clothes!

We were provided with very helpful advice on restaurants to visit, and our breakfasts on the terrace were memorable.
