Wow lovel hotel

It is a beautiful hotel but still relaxed nothing was too much trouble.

The room was really lovely with the wow factor. There was a free mini bar every day. The view was great and the hotel is ideally placed for the beach and the town.

We had a great time staying there.

The Plettenberg review

A lovely hotel. We had an excellent room in the annexe with its own terrace and sunloungers. The hotel was saved from potential stuffiness, as a 5* might be, by the friendly nature of the staff and, of course, Peter the resident cat.

General Manager Annemie was an excellent hostess who even helped with breakfast service. She was also happy to book restaurants and arrange taxis; although the hotel is only a short distance from the centre of town it is up quite a steep hill and it recommended that guests used taxis at night for safety.

Food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent though we understand the lunchtime menu is the same as that for dinner and the dinner menu did not change during our stay.

There are lots of activities in the area and the travel desk staff are happy to book any of them for guests. We took the river cruise which was excellent. We had driven down from the Karoo and came into Plettenberg Bay via Prince Alfred’s pass – a very scenic drive but not for the faint-hearted! We even met a snake on the way!

Absolute Quality

Having stayed here over 20 years ago, the hotel has expanded, but very tastefully.

The beach is fantastic and there are plenty of other activities to try in the area.

Lovely Hotel in a wonderful position

Our overall experience was really good. The staff, service and food were excellent.

Our only negative is that the room we were allocated had a separate toilet which was essentially situated in the wardrobe with no hand washing facilities.

The Plettenberg review

The location of this hotel is excellent with view over the bay and easy access to the town.

The room was large, comfortable and well equipped.

We visited the Robberg Nature reserve and walked the trail. Fortunately the weather was good and the views across the bay, spectacular.

We had a very good meal in the restaurant.

Our only negative about the hotel is that the staff were a little over attentive, almost to the extent of being creepy.

The Plettenberg review

Beautiful location in an area where there is plenty to do if you have a car. Good food in the hotel and a choice of restaurants within the town.

Soon to close for a referb we hear....but that is not necessary for our room which was on the small side but very comfortable.

The Plettenberg review

A very nice hotel on a superb headland location but a bit too formal and fancy for our tastes. The room was fine with a nice view; the food was very good but there was something missing.

We visited Emily Moon a couple of times and that was much more like the boutique Africa one wants.
