The location is good, overlooking Robberg Beach. The house is beautiful and garden well maintained. Rooms are clean and well maintained too, though some rooms are quite small. Breakfast was good as well, though it took a bit of time. The only real improvement can be in providing better toiletries in the bathroom.

Beautiful beaches, great breakfast area overlooking the sea, very friendly staff but unfortunately the pool and ocean view is restricted to the owners. Guest rooms have entrance from the garden where everyone passes, no balcony, all ground level. some rooms are really nice, others very small.

Romantic Laura Ashley stylish guesthouse by the seaside, on a height, superb view on ocean and near to beach. Friendly people, great atmosphere. One minor important aspect though: our room had no airconditioning, a bit strange with the hot climate. So sleeping was not comfortable.

We stayed at the Southern Cross Beach House during a 3 week vacation in South Africa. While this B and B was good, it was probably the most disappointing place we stayed during our entire trip (the others were outstanding!). I am not sure if I would stay here again, even though we had more than a pleasant stay. Would...

We definitely enjoyed staying at the Southern Cross Beach House. It has beautiful decorated rooms, all kept in white (no seaview and only a tiny bit run down), a romantic garden with many different flowers and rose-bushes, 2 funny dogs and a very short distance walk through the dunes to get to the marvellous beach. It was also amazingly restful...

I'd like very much to stay at Southern Cross. The house is nicely white decorated with a lovely garden and a beatiful view of the sea. With a just a small walk within the threes your are on the beach. Rooms are not very big but nice and clean. Breakfast and service very good.

A friend who used to live at Plettenberg Bay recommended Southern Cross Beach House during our stay and it could not have been a better choice. The rooms are beautifully appointed and clean, with excellent service, especially from Edward, the knowledgeable manager, who ensured that we knew where the best restaurants and places to visit were located. The accommodation is...

Everything was perfect. The decor of the rooms and common areas, the gardens, the staff. It really is a special place to spend a few days! The staff couldn't do enough for us and made us feel like we were royalty. Thank you Southern Cross Beach House.... we will definitely be back!

This place is very well located above the beach of Plettenberg Bay, with friendly staff and convenient central kitchen services for general use during the day. However, no rooms have sea views, unless you are the owner, whose rooms do. The pool is only for the use of the owner, too. So while it's very good, it's not quite as...
