We spent 5 nights here, and it was one of our best hotel experiences ever. The staff were wonderful, and they couldn't have made us feel more welcome. We loved the room, the food and the ambiance. Thank you SO much,Suzanne, Sybil and Hayley, for everything.

We stayed at the Grand for 4 nights as one of 6 stops during our honeymoon. We stayed in some great places but the Grand was the highlight. The rooms are quirky but very stylish with great attention to detail. We stayed upstairs in Room 7 and the view was spectacular. Its also a very large room and the beds are extremely comfy. Aside from the stylish surroundings the service was magnificant. Both Hayley and Cybil at reception could not have been more welcoming or helpful. They gave us great tips on things to do in Knysna and at Storms River and also recommended the excellant Nguni restaurant for an evening meal.The restaurant staff were also very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was superb with a varied menu and great coffee. We ate in the restaurant on the first night of our stay and the meal was so good we chose to eat there again on the last evening. Best place we've ever stayed!

We stayed at the Grand Cafe and Rooms in November 2012 and loved the place - wacky decor and lovely restaurant. But the level of service we received when we stupidly left our valuables (including passports!) in the safe was incomparable. When the courier company let her down, Suzanne drove the package herself to our next destination - north of PE! It's a 3and a half hour drive.

Breakfast on the balcony with views over the bay and freshly cooked food, is a wonderful start to any day.

Room Tip: If you want your own pool (and TWO baths)- go for the Bath House. Other rooms have their own advanta...

We stayed in this hotel for one night in Oct during our honeymoon along the garden route.the hotel is very stylish,the rooms extravagant and comfortable, also plenty of space and amazing view over the bay. I had a facial treatment in the salon as the weather was rainy.we had dinner in the restaurant in the evening, and it was very good.the cocktails are delicious and we loved the chilled out terrace where we had our breakfast in the sun the next morning. Very recommendable hotel friendly staff.

It was my best friend's wedding at The Grand in Plett last week. I can not rave enough about the personalised service and the completely relaxed way in which it was done. Being an event coordinator myself, I understand how difficult it can be to make a venue work in the best way possible but when I walked in and met Suzanne she just had everything so under control and there was nothing left to chance. It did help that the Bride was possibly the most relaxed bride I've ever seen but Suzanne took everything completely in her stride and the wedding was absolutely perfect in every way!!! I can not compliment Suzanne's style enough - she is exactly the kind of General Manager / Event Coordinator that a boutique hotel requires.

The other staff were all extremely helpful but not over the top, they stayed up until 4am with the Irish singers and were serving the early birds breakfast by 6am - still not sure how they managed that!!

The rooms are perfectly comfortable and our room had a spectacular sea view which was hard to leave!! It is important to note that not all rooms have showers but have got a shower extension on the bath.

There was absolutely nothing that I could fault about this hotel and my entire experience there! The food was absolutely delicious, the personal service made me feel at home and the rooms were just so comfortable that I didn't want to leave. Also, the fact that the hotel is so central to town and the beach - you can get just about anywhere on foot!

Do yourself a favour and GO GRAND!!!

Room Tip: Definitely request a sea view - otherwise the bath house has it's own private swimming pool!

We had a wonderful group get-together with tasty starters and drinks on the verandah - an amazing view as the sun set and the full moon cast a beautiful reflection. The staff is perfection, the food sublime and the atmosphere incredible. Surely not to be missed when next in Plett!!!
