Very nice guesthouse. Helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast. Next to the beach. We had a garden-room which was really nice but smelt (moisture?). Next time we would take another room ... with sea view!

Stayed in the smaller rooms. Fine for a night or two. Beach location is nice but you need a car to go out for dinner etc. Plettenberg was an odd place compared to others on the garden route- very quiet. Breakfast was great. If you can get it cheap- it's worth a stay.

We enjoyed 4 nights here. Lovely location, overlooking the beach and ocean . great staff . Breakfast was excellent. Well appointed rooms. Roof terrace with honesty box for drinks Good value for money . If I had one criticism it would be the BBQ in the evening, not the best we'd ever had. It's a decent walk into the town...

This is a wonderful location and this was our third visit. However, this time we felt that some things needed attention. The safe was very difficult to operate, and the door locks needed attention. Only one hand towel and one bath mat was provided for two people. We prefer one each. The décor of the room was looking a little...

Booked (& pre-paid) for 4 nights in a 'Beachy Head Villa Garden Double Room'. The room that was offered was not of a standard or location commensurate with either the description or our expectations. As no better rooms were available, we chose to leave. The is NOT 5* accommodation, 3* at best.

This is not a 5 star hotel. It is in a great location and our room had a balcony and sea views. We were greeted by a member of staff who was very helpful.The breakfasts were great. The wide sandy beach is perfect for walking along. But, the location does mean that you either drive or take taxis into Plattenberg...
