“Five Star Hospitality from John”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We stayed at Piesang for a couple of nights and it really is worth staying here just to meet John. He gave us excellent advice on what to do during our stay and Plet was definitely a highlight of our trip to South Africa. The accommodation is quirky and offers amazing views of the landscaped garden, sea and mountains. Leonard will cook you an awesome breakfast that completely sets you up for the day. The lodge is very relaxed and provides a nice break from the hectic town centre in peak season. If you are after a B&B that is a little bit more original then you should definitely stay here.

As positive we noted that the sloping property allows for stunning views of the Plettenberg Bay, as the backdrop of the pool area. The price for a Bed & Breakfast is good, and there is free wireless internet (albeit outside of the cabin only!)

Negative points, however, were:
- wrong cabin concept where timber floor boards are shared with neighbouring cabins (i.e. their walking noise carries across!) and where bathroom and sleeping area are not isolated (i.e. bathroom sounds carry - which no couple appreciates!)
- lack of cleanliness in bathroom and under the bed
- continental breakfast buffet but very small serving size of cooked breakfast
- no designated reception area and confusion upon arrival (we were greeted by a lady in track pants)
- communal feel in kitchen and lounge area, dogs kept begging for food during breakfast

Great views and garden, with pleasant rooms. The guest receives warm hospitality and tailored advice about the local attractions. The area of Plettenberg bay is an excellent base to explore the garden route. Highly recommended- I would go back again.

We came about this Bed& Breakfast by accident and it wa just great. John the owner is very!! nice and the view from there was terrific. Nice pool deck, very good breakfast and the beach in Plettenberg is awesome! The rooms are good, but don´t expect top luxery. The prices are very good and more then worth it.

My husband and I along with our 5 year old nephew stayed 3 nights at this location with breakfast included.
Such a beautiful location, with very relaxing surroundings. My husband and I have been to Plett a few times together (I am from SA but my husband isn't) and this location was lovely.
John, the proprieter, was super friendly and helpful including taking it in his stride when having my nephew knock on his door every afternoon to say hello to the 3 friendly, child-tolerant staffies.
The room was family friendly. With a second room of double bunk beds. The bathroom was large with a bath and seperate shower. We had use of the communal kitchen in the evenings, along with the lounge area.
Our family room was attached to the lounge / kitchen communal area but we didn't have an issue with noisy patrons. The small chalets (rest of the accommodation) looked lovely from outside.
I would definitely recommend this location and stay there again. The only drawback was, a car / bicycle would probably be necessary unless you liked walking as we were not close to the beach but that was known before booking.
Thanks John. Had a lovely stay.

To stay in the lodge was such a different and welcome experience from the norm. The rooms are rustic and you feel really in the countryside rather than just in a house.
The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The communal room has a fridge and bottle openers.
The breakfast was lovely and eaten outside overlooking those beautiful views.
John is very friendly and helpful, he booked us a place at the Plettenberg nature reserve which is well worth a visit. He also has recommendations of places to eat, The Lookout was just fantastic.
All in all the B&B is more than worth the money and I would recommend to anybody.
Oh and his dogs are so friendly x
Only one downside is no air conditioning and it was very hot the nights we stayed here

We stayed at Piesang Valley Lodge for 3 nights in late December 2011. What a wonderful spot. The rooms are clean and cosy, the pool area is fabulous and John (the owner) is friendly and helpful. There are only 6 rooms so generally the lodge is nice and quiet with wonderful views. There is no fridge in the room but the communal area has a fridge if needed. We would definitely stay there again! Out of all the places we stayed along the garden route, this was the least expensive but one of the best.
