This is lovely boutique hotel with personal touch. Its stylishly furnished with antique furniture making the experience unique. I really loved its charm and specious rooms. I would definitely revisit this hotel if in the area. Also loved its proximity to the town.

Me and my partner were working close by as volunteers, on every day off we had we would venture here for their world class Grand Mojito, made with cranberry juice!

Had dinner with friends and our waiter made the evening. She was So attentive and definitely went the extra mile. The camembert cheese starter is Wow and the carpaccio is really special. Chicken salad with deep fried avo not that nice. Overall a great experience. Will be back. This establishment is not for dining on a budget.....

This is out "go back to" restaurant in Plett, had various lunches and dinners there over the last decade, and will go back again - smallish menu, great food, good wine list, and excellent service - try it out, you will not be dissapointed

It's hard to find a one good thing to say about this place: staff was unfriendly, while the room was dirty and seriously shabby. We asked to clean it, but almost nothing has changed. The towels were damaged with giant yellow spots like pee. The breakfast was poor. This hotel is miles away from Mr&MsSmith standard.

Hi Marzio, we thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us and are devastated to hear that nothing seems to have been satisfactory to you. What you are describing certainly does not sound like our grand standard and we would like to investigate further. If you could kindly eMail us in more detail on Benjamin@GrandAfrica.com...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a road trip. The location of the hotel is ideal, within walking distance of the town centre and the beach set at the top of the hillside. Views from the dining area were superb over the coastline. What struck us immediately was the effort made to give it an 'old' look....

As locals, we try going to The Grand every now and again, to see whether it has "cleaned up its act". We do this because a) there are not many good restaurants in Plett, b) my dear friend Gail Behr built the hotel, and it brings back happy nostalgic memories of times past. However, the last couple of times we...

Terrific rooms: spacious, with great amenities and outstanding interior design. Common areas were pleasant, you can't make much use of the pool as it doesn't get much sunlight but still nice. Great staff except the waiters at the restaurant who are unfortunately very inexperienced.

The only reason I didn't give a 5 rating was because the breakfast service was dismal when we were there. Took 1 hour before we got our drinks and then another hour before we got our food, and it wasn't even busy. Felt a little neglected and It made us late getting to our next activity.
