“Bohemian beauty”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The style and decor of The Grand was exactly to our tastes - rustic in parts and opulent in others. The service was efficient yet unobtrusive. The bed ridiculously comfortable. The food at the restaurant was up to the usual Grand high standards. Peaceful, relaxing and inspiring.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in February and had a very relaxing stay following our safari in Sabi Sands. Whilst we were unlucky with the weather, we felt very pleased with our hotel choice. I must admit, I didn't quite know what to expect before arriving but everything about the hotel, its restaurant and its rooms is beautifully designed and thought out.

We didn't arrive until gone 9:30pm but the kitchen was still open and put together a delicious platter with some well matched white wine for us without hesitation.

The levels of service here are extremely high and very friendly without being over bearing.

The food and drink choices are perfect and the quality was consistently very high.

Our room had an impressive sea view and was bigger than many suites I've stayed in, in so called 5 star hotels.

I couldn't recommend the Grand Cafe and Rooms enough. Everyone really looked after us and we had a relaxing, comfortable stay.

Not the usual hotel room, each one is different. A character all of its own in a great location with wonderful views, very nice. Glad we tried it and would certainly recommend. Free parking available.

i was booked to stay at a rented villa in Plett but when i arrived there was a huge building site next door which was disastrous....we decided to find alternate accommodation and were lucky to get the last two rooms at The Grande! What a place and what great staff. They were incredibly welcoming and had us settled in swiftly..our room was amazing with the best "bath with a view"..dinner was delicious (i go to The Grande in Cape Town often so knew it would be good) as was the breakfast......If i go back to Plett i will definitely be staying there again...

This place has a quirky feel to it - with retro decor and antique furnishings. If that's not your scene then you won't like it here. The beds are a quite high so a step is provided for you to get on. Rooms feel very dark because the decor is predominantly dark reds, purples, grey and black. It's definitely not basic. The rooms may be different but they have all the mod cons you can need - espresso coffee machines, TV, satellite TV, en suite shower, stocked bar fridge and lots of space.

The cafe has apparently won awards. I didn't enjoy the chicken I had, I found it bland. My friends had seafood pasta and her food was quite good. The cafe's deck is a really cool spot to hang out and have pizzas.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a nice bath with a view. The downstairs rooms don't have views but they're close...

The Grand Cafe is a breath of fresh air, and far removed from what most people expect of a typical hotel. It's innovative, unusual and fun, with staff who clearly enjoy working there, continuously smile, and who put customer service at the top of their agenda. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in a 'moodily' decorated room, with sweeping views of the bay and coastline, and a 3' high bed that required a foot stool to get up into! We had a bath which was next to one set of double windows so we could look out over the bay from the bath, and a double shower that was part of the lounge! The whole hotel has been designed in a very bohemian fashion, which gives it a very embracing and warm atmosphere. Food was great and the restaurant/bar terrace great for views and relaxing, plus the location in the centre of Plett is perfect for everything. The only down side are the stairs. Quirky and fun, and well worth a stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you get rooms 5 or 6 as these have the best views over the bay and coastline
