Walking into reception of Halcyon House, we were shocked by how beautiful the house is, the photos don't do the reception area justice. There is a lovely little pool area which is very tranquil with the sound of running water. Our room was clean and comfortable with a private balcony to look out on Plett. It was a nice touch...

We had a very nice stay in the Halcyon House. We booked 2 rooms for 4p but we were offered 3 rooms, which we gladly accepted. Absolute stylish and special. High quality accomodation, clean, spacious and great hospitality. Breakfast was very nice. Great choice and very tasty. Our girls enjoyed the pool table the most....

Loved both the house and Plettenberg. We lucked out, in that the owners put us in the Kingfisher suite, which is quite something (decadent bathroom for example), with a great early morning view. Owners were great, Staff were great. As for location, you need a navigation device to find it.

My wife and I spent only one night at Halcyon House, far too short a stay for such a wonderful venue. Caroline ensured we were well catered for and looked after in her magnificent home. And we emphasise "home". All amenities were excellent. At the time of our stay Plett Bay suffered a power outage but this this did not...

Was lucky enough to spend one night on route to a wedding at halcyon house. The service was phenomenal and I I truly can't wait to go back for a more leisurely stay to spend time in the kingfisher rooms jacuzzi bath or have a lazy breakfast next to the pool.

We were extremely comfortable in the Kingfisher suite, within earshot of the sea. Our family occupied the other 2 suites on the top floor, allowing us total privacy. The breakfasts were always different with plenty of selection and fresh fruit, served downstairs in the sunny terrace overlooking the pool, or in the elegant open-plan dining room. Judy and Caroline are...

Simply the best guest house I ever stayed in and I stayed in some quite amazing ones in the USA. I was in the Kingfisher Suite. It's huge and luxurous and has a wonderful view. Breakfast was delicious and the selection great with differences from the one day to the other. Also you get a very personal experience. On my...

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. The room, Kingfisher suite, was wonderful 4 double wardrobes, large bathroom with double showers and fold back doors in the bedroom to give a sea view (just). The people who looked after us could not have been nicer, or more helpful. All though slightly outside Plett, but 2 mins from the beach, taxi...
