Stayed at this hotel in December 2012.
Room: In fairness, we booked late so we were allocated a roadside room at the back of hotel, with no view. I understood this when booking so I have no issue with the fact that we looked onto a road. However, the cost didn't quite equate to the lack of value in all other respects. The decor and design of the rooms and bathroom were a throwback to the 90s.
The best part about the hotel was the awe-inspiring view from the restaurant which I cannot fault. But overall I found the hotel was on par with a reasonable four star hotel chain I'd happily accept when traveling for business, provided I was charged accordingly.
The food was fine. Not memorable, but also not dreadful.
The hotel pool in our building was the size of postage stamp.
The hotel is definitely not for young kids.
I personally think there is much better on offer in Plett for this price.
