Thank-you Beth and team for a wonderful stay at Cottage Pie; your warmth and welcome really makes one feel special. We loved your breakfasts around the pool! Cottage Pie is really “cottagy”; there are a number of quite different, quirky rooms and if one is particular about having the best room one will need to ensure suitability when booking. The...

Very fortunate to stay at Cottage Pie for a weekend in Feb, two friends & myself! Each had our own rooms, fully equipped except for mine, that could have done with a fan ~ other than that friendly staff, stunning pool area, yummy breaksfast and amazingly comfy beds! Very close to the beach, so an early morning walk is fantastic!...

Checked into a "luxury room" which appeared to be a converted garage the main window and entrance of which was 2m from the car park. White chipboard furniture, access the shower room through the wardrobe. No aircon, cheap toileteries, bare walls. Very friendly manageress (Beth) gave us an upgrade to a much better room after complaining. Breakfast not bad, but...

Thanks for your review & your compliments about Beth and the great location. Plett is our favourite place on the garden route and Robberg Beach is just a great location. Since we took over Cottage Pie two years ago we've loved the challenge of trying to perfect the look and feel of the place. It still has a very relaxed...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Pie. Our room was truly beautiful and elegant, yet so cosy and comfortable in a gorgeous romantic setting. The friendly staff were very helpful and warm, ensuring our stay was a memorable one. Cottage Pie is definitely at the top of our list for our favourite places to stay and...

Cottage Pie is one of the few guest houses situated very, very close to Robberg Beach. I am sure there are better accommodations at the price in Plett, but I don't think any of them will offer the convenience of this great location. I stayed in #6, one of the two upstairs rooms at a nightly rate of 2100Rand over...

The "Cottage Pie" is just as beautiful as the pictures of it. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the staff is extremely courteous and the breakfast was delicious. Besides being a truly "five star" accomodation their location makes it even better: Situated in a very quiet side road, it takes only about 4 minutes to walk to famous Robberg...

Delightful hostess in Beth and good staff; Beth generously provided everything we didn't have including belly boards and beach chairs. Cotage Pie is very close to the ocean and the beach and Beth provided great local knowledge and advice. The rooms were on the small side but clean and bright. The premier rooms on the upper floor were of a...

Very nice rooms, particularly the two suites. Be aware that this B&B is part of a commercial chain, so it lacks the typical personal service you normaly receive at south african B&B. The rooms are very clean and stylish with an excellent quality of beds.

This was a little gem! The room we stayed in was very beautiful, and it was in a great location to the beach A walk over around a bush! seriously! Between it and the sea is one road and some fynbos. As mentioned by the previous person we couldn't see the beach from the room, but there are rooms upstairs...
