We had the honeymoon suite for fun and it was as stunning as it looked but I wouldn't have my honeymoon there - the walls are very thin so we were very aware of ourselves and our tones of voice. The owners were so very kind and helpful and accommodating though so I would still recommend. Lovely views and lovely...

Our room was clean and spacious with an amazing view of the ocean. The bathroom was tastefully decorated, it came with 2 basins, 2 showers, a bath and...

We stayed over for one night. On our arrival the lady did not know in which room we are staying. The bedding and towels are not at the advertised standard and the breakfast was very limited and poorly prepared. The room we stayed in was comfortable and large.

I can't recommend Whale Rock Guest House enough. The furnishings in the bedroom and lounge/breakfast area were lovely and made for a very comfortable stay. The finishing touches and presentation made for a 5 star stay, even though we were only there for one light. Leanne and Wayne were so hospitable I felt like we had made new friends. It...

Whale Rock is simply a hidden gem in the little town of Plett. Set high up in a modern quiet part of the suburbs you are perfectly positioned close to beaches, town centre and access roads out to all the amazing activities on offer in the area. Wayne and Lelanie will take good care of you from the moment you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
REFINED LODGING WITH HOME FROM HOME COMFORTS. Here you can rest your soul. Whale Rock House is situated in the new area known as Whale Rock, in Plettenberg Bay approximate 800 meters from our famous Robberg Nature Reserve and Robberg Beach. Short drive to major tourist attractions. The style is understated elegance and each room individually styled. Luxurious comfort is the hallmark from quality toweling to percale cotton bed linen. All bedrooms are spacious with fine finishes and fixtures throughout. We will provide all necessary info to ensure a trouble free stay from taxis, car hire, airport transfers and bookings for various activities. Our guests can relax in the upstairs lounge with satellite TV with a spectacular view over Robberg Nature Reserve. You might arrive as a stranger, but will be hosted like an old acquaintance. IMAGINE - From : "Portrait of Plettenberg Bay" by Patricia Storrar. Imagine......... Being part of the sea, sweeping white beaches. Calm lagoons and gentle green hills, all set against the backdrop of the Tsitsikama mountains. Dramatic and unique, something which makes a swift and lasting impact on the senses. Those who have grown to savor the Bay in all its moods, from mornings that dawn clear as a sparkling mirror to nights raging with the fury of a westerly gale. Never tire of it. The ever changing light presents several times a day vistas of such exquisite loveliness that each sense might be newly created. But there is so much more to Plettenberg Bay than the mere Arcadian beauty. The entire Bitou area is rich in history that everywhere one goes - on the dunes or in the kloofs, on the coastal hills or deep in the forests, beside lipid pools or in the caves. Ancient beyond comprehension - one is walking on paths worn smoothly. ... more   less
