“A pleasure to be there”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stayed two nights in Room R10. It was huge with big bathroom with separate shower, bath, 2 w,h. Basins and toilet. All spotless. There are 2 balconies one overlooking the ocean. Everything was pleasing and tge staff pleasant. Good choice at breakfast. They do not really serve dinner as there are many good restaurants in the area but do provide a one course meal which has to be boojed in advance. A very pleasant place to stay.

The Robberg Hotel is situated just back from the beach with fantastic views over the bay. The restaurant was very bright and clean with a vast array of options for breakfast. The owner gave us excellent advice on the area including restaurants. A must is to visit the roof patio and see the view across the bay. Fully recommend.

Loved staying here, right on the sandy beach at Plettenberg Bay. A little hard to find but the warm welcome and beautiful room overlooking the ocean made up for it. Everyone very friendly. They should do more to promote the Lion Roars chain as we stayed at Derwent House in Cape Town and had no idea they were linked. A little cross-marketing would help.

Stayed 2 nights and though we couldn't get room with sea view it mattered little. Staff very helpful and welcoming and like nearly all South Africans smile a lot. Plettenburg is great place with magnificent beach and good restaurants. Can't do better than stay at Robberg.

A friend and I stayed at this lovely hotel for 3 nights in January 2014. It has a very calming, sophisticated, neutral beach decor which I loved. Location is prime with views and access to a gorgeous, wide beach and just 5 min from town, so a car is essential. We had a ground floor room in the main house that had a great outdoor patio with views of the sea. Staff was attentive and greet you with a cold drink when you arrive. Nice touch. I would like to particularly thank Victor who was busy but dropped what he was doing to help me with a time sensitive business transaction back in the States. Thank you Victor! Plettenburg Bay is gorgeous and we enjoyed the most beautiful hike at the Robberg Nature Preserve and side trip to Knysna. Be sure to eat at Fat Fish in Plett, wow...sooo good. We did not want to leave the Robberg Beach Lodge! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: Splurge for a sea view. It's worth it!

This was our first time to South Africa and The Robberg Beach Lodge was our first stopping point. And it didn't disappoint. The sunshine probably helped, but our room was enormous with a balcony that had a bit of a sea view from one end. The bed was super comfortable (which is so important from my point of view) and there was also a little seating area with a sofa and tv (although we never turned it on). There was also a fridge and sink - sort of a mini kitchen area all within what looked like a wardrobe - very useful when a cold beer was just what you needed.

We stayed for 4 nights over New Year and it was a wonderful start to the holiday. I found everyone friendly and they went out of their way to book restaurants for us and sort out taxis to get us to and from them.

We only spent a couple of hours sitting around the pool - we were lucky enough to get there before anyone else and grabbed a couple of sun loungers. That is possibly one of the only negatives to the property - not enough sun loungers for all the guest - by the time we wandered off to our room there were people lying all over the grass as there weren't sufficient to go around.

The first night we arrived, we were too tired to even attempt to go out for dinner so we ate in - we had bobotie washed down with a very acceptable bottle of red. It was lovely - we didn't really know what to expect but it tasted great.

We would definitely go back. It's a lovely place with fabulous views from the front deck and seconds from an amazing beach - whats not to like?

Room Tip: Although our room didn't have a sea view it was great - actually I think it was classed as a sui...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We love to hear when guests enjoy their holiday with us. We are so glad you enjoyed the huge, comfy beds- you are so right, beds are important when you're on a relaxing holiday. It sounds like you really did get to relax too, what bliss to keep the TV turned off and enjoy the beauty of Plettenberg Bay. We are glad that you enjoyed the Bobotie which is a unique and tasty South African dish. We are planning to get more loungers very soon for everyone to enjoy, thank you for sharing your comments with us. We hope you will be visiting us again soon. best wishes from the Bailey family and the Robberg team.

We stayed here for 5 night recently, they couldn't have done enough to make our stay more comfortable. The staff were so helpful with booking us restaurants and recommending places for us to go. The breakfast is great. The rooms are lovely and very well appointed. The views of Robberg beach are incredible. The only downside (which is a small one) is the lack of options for lunch/snack food if you are around the beach lodge at lunch time or in the afternoon. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Beach towels, beach umbrellas and bodyboards are all available to borrow which was a great help cons...

Thank you for your great review. We're so glad you enjoyed the time you spent with us. We understand the difficulty around lunch options and snacks available. This year was the first year we offered a limited menu of toasted sandwiches. We hope to grow our menu in very soon. Thanks for sharing your room tip as well, we really appreciate it.
