We stayed for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. I kind of wished we stayed longer in Plett than moving onto Knysna but that's another story. The place has lovely views of the Ocean and great swimming pool area. I loved the little touched in the room, like a little survival kit including plasters, headache tablets etc. Really...

We stayed at Swallows Nest for one night in a double room with sea view (room no 2) and had a wonderful stay. The room is well laid out with good facilities and there is obviously a lot of thought that has gone into little extras around the room - an umbrella, beach/pool towels, sewing kit, bottles of water in...

We spent a week in Plettenberg Bay in March but sadly only our last 4 nights here. I think initially we were put off by a previous inappropriate poor review. The room was wonderful with with great views over the sea and had lovely attention to detail. Breakfast was excellent as was the service and location. Gerald, the manager, couldn't...

I stayed overnight in what the owners did not consider their "best room - no garden view", as the rest of the rooms were taken. It was a small room, but with many extras, including full tea tray, fridge, biscuits, sherry, mosquito machine,umbrella, beach towels, TV etc. Very clean and comfortable. Styling is more conservative, i.e. not modern, but the...

From the moment we arrived till we left 4 days later we could not have asked for better: we booked 2 rooms and they were beside each other and only a few steps to the very clean pool. The rooms were very clean, wonderful small touches which included a small first aid kit,sewing kit and each room had a fridge,...

The team welcomed us and we were really happy to stay there. It's a lovely B&B. From the nice breakfast, to the attention to detail in the rooms, to the saltwater pool, I cannot complain. The whole place has a very "welcoming" feel to it and you feel settled very soon. Well done to the team, please keep up the...

The place has great rooms in the second floor with some view to the ocean and mostly to the back yard and the pool. Nights are 600-650 rand per room. Rooms are clean and nice and there is even some candies and shery for the coming guests.
