We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Pam's delightful little guesthouse last week. Pam is not just a consummate host but an absolute delight to stay with. Pam pointed us on the direction of the best restaurants, the best hikes and always had a pot of tea ready when we came back from a hike! The breakfast is...

This is by far the best guesthouse my husband and I has ever been too. Pam and her staff were exceptionally hospitable. The rooms and breakfast were outstanding. Tranquil environment overlooking the ocean. A perfect breakaway for a final destination or even just a stop over. It is a must see for all local and international travellers. We will definitely...

If you want a comfortable quiet stay in plettenberg bay stay with Pam at her B and B. There is a wonderful patio/ deck with comfortable chairs, umbrellas and tables where you can sit and enjoy a gin and tonic at the end of the day or sit and have breakfast in the morning. The suites are very comfortable and...

Rather than just repeating all of the excellent comments which other people have made,I thought that I would write this review as a Brit from Brighton, resident in Cape Town. Use this little piece of excellence as your base for this section of the Garden Route, forget Knysna and visit from here.Thanks Pam, would love to return.

I've just spent a wonderful week in Plettenberg Bay at the superb Dolphins' Beachfront B & B run by Pam Meara. Pam is such a welcoming and hospitable hostess that we felt that were more like family than guests. Nothing was too much for her. The room was so clean and overlooked the beach, a huge plus. Pam's breakfasts were...

We stayed with Pam at the dolphin's playground back in 2012 and it will forever leave us with happy memories. The rooms are warm, clean and inviting, the breakfast is delicious, but most of all we were struck by Pam's hospitality.
