Cornerway House
Ranked #11 of 81 Plettenberg Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2013

We just spent 2 weeks at the fantastic Cornerway House in Plettenberg Bay.

We opted for the Tino Top flat which includes a large bedroom, full bathroom, sitting room, dining room and fully equipped kitchen. The flat was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable.

Robin and Dee are fabulous hosts and the ladies who clean the rooms are really friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Cornerway House to anyone looking for a place to relax in Plettenberg Bay.

I will definitely be staying here again!!!

Thanks to Robin and Dee!

This B/B comes well recommended. It is owner run and managed and is set in a beautiful garden within easy drive of beach and shops. Robin, Dee and Patty are excellent hosts and very accommodating. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast on Christmas morning which included minced pies with brandy butter...delicious. we loved the garden as well as the privacy. the Verandah room was compact but had everything we required for a short stay, we loved the cotton towels and walk in generous shower. A dip in the pool was an added bonus on a sweltering hot afternoon.

We spent a night at Cornerway House, and found it to be very welcoming, comfortable, peaceful and baby-friendly (we have a six-month-old). Friendly hosts, prettily decorated interiors, a beautiful garden, and a delicious breakfast of crunchy homemade muesli and poached eggs the next morning, served up on the sunny patio overlooking the swimming pool. Wheelchair facilities are good. A wooden ramp up into the suite, and a roll-in shower. One or two small steps to negotiate into the communal areas (eg lounge and breakfast area). Owner Dee recommended a dinner spot which turned out to be great, think fresh fish, calamari and salads (sit-down or takeaway) situated a few hundred metres down the road. All in all, a very good experience.

A lovely peaceful location. If peace and quiet is what you want this is the place to stay, yet close to the action too! A beautiful garden, small clean swimming pool, excellent rooms and a lovely terrace for such a good breakfast! All very clean, tidy and well maintained. Robin, Dee (owners) and their staff are so friendly and helpful. It is certainly value for money. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room away from main Guest House building is better. Also has a wonderful 'self catering suite...

We stayed in cornerway house on our trip to Plett Bay and Garden Route. I have no complaints about the ladies who helped with breakfast each day and made the rooms but about the management. The management did not treat the line staff well at all and it was such a shame to see that. We also found a cockroach in the kitchen area which ruined our stay. The room where we stayed smelled very very musky. Overall, it was too expensive for the quality provided.
