We stayed here two nights. The rooms are lovely (note that in some of the rooms there's a private bathroom but it's across the hall. Really feels like a home. Drinker the owner is super nice and really wants to make your stay great. We enjoyed it a lot!

Stayed for one night during our garden route drive. What a lovely bnb! We stayed in the lower level apartment - very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and cooked for us in the morning...with a spectacular view over the bay and a chance sighting of a whale and some Dolphins. Plettenburg bay is so beautiful we regret only...

We stayed 4 nights in this nice guest house and were happy with our choice. It is perfectly situated just off the road into the centre of Plett, with a nice shopping mall close by, and close to beaches and attractions. We stayed in the nice unit on the ground floor which was well equipped for self-catering. You do still...

Well positioned - close to beaches and shops. We stayed in a room that didn't have a bathroom on suite - not ideal at all because we had to share the passage to the bathroom with other guests! There is one room that has a bathroom on suite . The Room was clean enough - the window blinds were somewhat...

This B&B is very conveniently located on Beacon Way. Close to Lookout beach and the nearby shopping mall. Excellent value for money and breakfast on the upstairs patio with the sun rising over Lookout beach was breath-taking.

A lovely place to stay in Plettenberg Bay – beautiful, stylishly decorated rooms and a delicious, healthy breakfast. We stayed in the suite which was very spacious and comfortable. Perfectly situated in a quiet area with a lovely view of the beach from the porch. Very friendly and helpful owners. We enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend...

We had a wonderful room in this great, little B&B. We could see Plettenberg Bay from our room. It was a lovely, spacious room with an extra bedroom and large bathroom for an incredible price. Breakfast was served on the top floor where the view was even better. Our hosts were very warm and prepared delicious breakfasts.

This place has beautifully decorated rooms and great bathrooms but for far less money than places of an equivalent standard. The hosts are friendly and helpful and kindly tackled our very dirty clothes washing too! There is the option to have breakfast or not for a cheaper price - great for us as we had spent rather too many mornings...

The best B&B we stayed at in South Africa! Clean, lovely owner, nice view, amazing room! Definitely price worthy, and I would pay double the price. Lyell was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good with a great view out to the ocean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You'd have to restrain yourself not to pay a follow-up visit. Chandeliers, gilt and crisp finishes are but a few elements to evoke this wonderful sense of grandeur and calm. Lyell's B&B is pristinely nestled in the heart of Formosa Bay overlooking the lagoon and ocean with a 180 degree sea view. ... more   less
