I love this place! Hence it was one of our first choices on a Plettenberg Bay day trip. Unfortunately we landed up facing a closed door. Perturbed, we searched for the source of quite a bit of racket. Renovation! Speaking to an on site worker,...More

Staying at the Grand is a magical and romantic experience from the pink exterior to the luscious interior. The eccentric height of the bed with its exquisite linen and little velvet covered step up enhances the escapist allure. The room was a space we didn’t...More

If you're after bright and modern accommodation then this is definitely not for you! But if you fancy a bit of Old Havana 1950's meets Africa, then you'll love this place. The views are magnificent; I could have sat on that terrace all day. I...More

If you require a bland, corporate square box type of hotel which ticks all the boxes then this accommodation probably is not for you. Its a one off! We stayed in Boadicea Suite on the ground floor, a large room complete with private garden and...More
