“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 31 December 2009

We booked last minute to go to Plett so could only get 1 night at Bosavern and after staying at the awful Forest :Lodge (which has same grading and same price) Bosavern was a delight.
From the moment you are greeted by the friendly staff you feel at home immediately.
The rooms are bright and big with plenty of cupboards. The linen is crisp and the towels are fluffy and clean.
The information booklets in the rooms provide so much information about Plett.
The breakfast was tasty with the layout having such fanatical attention to detail. Gorgeous cutlery and crockery.
Beautiful views over Robberg.
So sorry our stay was so short but we will definately be back,

We stayed at the Bosavern Guest house for 3 nights (21-3 Dec) and really enjoyed the modern clean lines in its style and the location which was very handy for shopping and eating out. We found Gerald and Viv's knowledge of the area very helpful and used many of their suggestions including a trip to the Knysna Elephant Sanctury which was amazing. Would recommend staying here to others.

We stayed for four nights at Bosavern Guest House in Plettenberg Bay and would thoroughly recommend it. Viv and Gerald who own this delightful property are very friendly and helpful and the guest house is run to a very high standard. The rooms are delightful, and the facilities and views are superb.

Viv and Gerald add an extra touch to your stay at the Bosavern. From the moment we pulled up in the spacious driveway and was greeted by Peter (one of the house keeping staff) who took our bags to our room and prepared some refreshments, and Viv's big smile and warm welcome, we knew our stay was going to be good.

The property is situated high in the hills and is blessed with an incredible view out over Plettenberg Bay. It really gives you a sense of the "Hollywood Hills".
The rooms are spacious, clean and well equiped and the breakfast had a good selection and was very satisfying.

Both Viv and Gerald are personable and caring. In regards to activities they are very well informed on the best places to visit and where to eat, and in most cases are happy to make reservations on your behalf (Thanks for the tapas tip at the Bramon winery :o) ).

A real gem!

Bosavern is situated high on a hill above Plettenberg Bay but is still only a short ten minute walk into the centre of Plett.
We where greeted by the owner Gerald, as we pulled into the car park and shown to our room which had a magnificent view over the bay,and, an immediate whale sighting.
The theme at the Bosavern is white and modern which can be difficult to pull off,but Gerald and his wife Viv managed it beautifully. Everywhere you looked it was spotless. Breakfast was worth getting out of bed for and the staff where fab. Gerald and Viv could not do enough for us,always making sure we had directions to our days destinations,suggesting new ones for us to visit, recommending restaurants etc.
All in all a wonderful place to stay,one which i would highly recommend to any one looking for high class accommodation in lovely Plettenburg.

This is a lovely guesthouse in a fantastic location, but what makes it so special are the owners, who made me so welcome. After two nights it felt like I was just like staying with old friends and it was sad to leave!
