Gorgeous hotel very quaint Right on the beach, great views and lovely rooms. Had a lovely walk round and enjoyed the views of the bay before breakfast. The breakfast was very good. Lovely eating outside enjoying the sea air.

With a stunning view, this guest house boasts a fabulous view of Beacon Isle and the surrounding waters. It has a decidedly light and airy cottage feel, with white walls, plenty of windows, gingham fabric, wicker furniture, and the like. Free wifi, friendly staff. All around a lovely place to stay.

This is a lovely guest house, but it is let down by poor service from the owners and confused service from the staff. The owner, a very nice lady called Andrea, greeted us politely, saw us to our room and we scarcely saw her again over three days. The breakfast staff struggled, particularly when there were more than two couples...

We spent one night in Plett and that was quite enough. It seems to be a culture-free zone - a place where over-weight Joburg financiers collapse onto the glorious beaches before hauling themselves back home in their Born Free 4x4s. But it has its compensations and the Southern Cross Beach House is one of them. It is a beautiful place,...

Beautiful accommodation, very friendly and helpful staff, amazing views of the bay. Highly recommend a stay here, stayed for 2 nights with direct access to the beach, safe and secure area. The locals were very welcoming and friendly. Within easy access to the town, beach and local restaurants. Lovely choice for breakfast, both hot and cold served.

We arrived late( early evening) at the SCBH and were warmly welcomed by the housekeeper Johanna who showed us the grounds, the honor bar (very nice touch for a place 10 minutes car ride to shops) our room and the private beach access. Johanna was kind and helpful and has worked there for over 15 years. Immediately upon arriving we...

On our garden route drive we decided to stay one night in Plettenberg bay. The hotel is located in a residential area, 15-20 minute drive from the buzzing areas. The house has been converted into a b&b and hence the rooms are a little smaller than what you would find in a hotel. But that said, the rooms are very...

Great beach house, just a couple of minutes walk from the wonderful beach! View from little garden is magnificent, while ocean waves can be heard around the clock. Hosts were helpful and respectful - provided all the requested information. Room was not spacious, yet cozy, light and very clean - accessible from the inside patio. Great shower. Loved the stay,...

We stayed one night on our way along the GR. As we have seen some very nice places on our journey, we might apply a fairly high scale. However, the beach house will at maximum be average on this. What's great about it is the location. Seconds from the beach and with an awesome view over the see. Also, it...
