“A magical place”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We recently stayed at this hotel in The Bath House, as part of our 40th Wedding Anniversary visit to South Africa. What an unusual and romantic place this proved to be, very different to any other hotel we have stayed in. Service was excellent and nothing too much trouble. We had our own private pool and courtyard, twin rolled topped baths and beautiful red velvet footstools to help us to get into our giant, raised level bed!! This place has to be seen to be believed - a truly magical experience!

This place is amazing. From the minute we walked in to be greeted by the exceptionally friendly and smiley staff to the moment we left, we simply couldn't fault the gorgeous Grand Cafe and Rooms. Suzanne and Sybil are excellent managers but, more than that, they genuinely seem to love the place and want everyone who stays there to feel the same. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they always had excellent suggestions and tips for local places to go, trips to make, walks to go on, shops to visit and so on. The room was spacious and quirky and the inclusion of a beach bag complete with beach towels for us to use was inspired! The view across the lagoon from the restaurant was breathtaking, and made every breakfast a pleasure. Parking directly outside the front of the hotel free of charge was very handy and its location generally was ideal for shops, beaches and walking. A 5 night stay that was just perfect.

Lovely large spacious room with a very large bathroom. The bed was very high off the floor, that did not bother us but it might be difficult to get in and out of bed if you have any sort of mobility issues, this may not apply to all rooms. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious, it was served in the hotels restaurant below. The best thing about the room was the view from the balcony as it over-looked bay, truly an lovely view.

Beautiful location and fun and different (in a good way) room. Restaurant breakfast was terrific and reception staff very helpful and friendly. Very open bathroom (no shower door and open toilet area) - this was a bit uncomfortable for me. Also wish the pool area was a bit more open and had the view the restaurant does.

From the beginning you enter the "Grand" till the end of your stay the very friendly staff is looking after you at all time and exceeds your needs. Great interior design of the property and the decoration of the room is simply amazing. Nice food, amazing views. You need visit!

We will remember the fantastic view from the terrace and the rooms that were very special. It was just a short walk to the nice beach where the water temperature was perfect for a swim. Plettenberg is not far from Knysna which is also nice to visit with a number och restaurants and shops at the Waterfront.
