We upgraded the room to a suite so we have an ocean view (make sure when you book the you have a view apparently some rooms don't) The room is very small, the bathroom is part of the room, and the worse thing, the bed, it's only 1.90 in lengths I'm a tall guy and it was the worst sleep...

We stayed in the Carribean Suite with a sea view for 4 nights. The owner was really welcoming, and the room spotless, with a wonderful view from the shared balcony. There is a really comfy large bed, cannot fault anything about this property. It is in a really good location, within walking distance of shops and restaurants.

No one stays at the hotel apart from the guests, so service is minimal. We couldn't even find drinking water in the night as kitchen was locked and no one around. Location...

Due to this incident, future clients are now advised by management, to not leave any luggage in their car, while in residence, so there is no reason for anyone to break in.

The place was beautiful, the host was friendly and the view was great! The host also explained everything and was helpful at all times. The room and bathroom was spectacular and the breakfast was also amazing! Will stay here again in a heart beat.

Spent a delightful few days in this gorgeous guesthouse. Professional hospitality and stunning rooms. The view is unbelievable. 180 degrees of ocean as well as the river mouth. One could not want for a more centrally located place. Shops and restaurants are in walking distance as well as the beach. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a special stay in Plett....

We booked in for the first two nights of our honeymoon at this little piece of heaven. It was an amazing experience. The staff were extremely friendly, and very eager to help with booking restaurants and anything else we needed. The room (we stayed in the Captain) was amazing, those black out curtains of theirs had my new hubby very...
