Fantastic hotel in a magnificent setting

Posted Feb 20, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing.
Location: The setting was so nice we did not want to move from the hotel. Easy drive to the beach or town.
Spectacular position on a hill overlooking the ocean. Beautiful hotel with great staff, service, and restaurant. Highly recommended.

OK hotel close to beach.

Posted Jan 25, 2014
Pros: The staff and the food
Location: Only the beach
We booked well in advance for a 3 night stay in Plet. We were given a reasonable room in the main hotel but it looked out onto the car park. The noise from staff/guests arriving and leaving was irritating. On day 3 we secured a room with a balcony over the road but this was so small it could not even accommodate a small coffee table. The balcony was too small to have any furniture. To be fair we were not impressed by Plet itself as there is very little to see or do.

Very expensive rooms but great location

Posted Jan 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Rained whole day we were in plettenburg at height of summer season.Hotel very expensive for rooms, but restaurant and wines reasonably priced and good food. Hotel looking a little tired, eg. dirty looking floorings in corridors, but very nice room ( a suite overlooking the sea, no standard room available at short notice). Great location between a walking beach and a swimming 'main' beach

Really relaxing

Posted Nov 17, 2013
Pros: Location , food and service
Cons: More a hotel for adults , small pool area not ideal but the sea is a few minutes away so who cares!
Location: Went to see elephants, monkeys and birds , some great places to eat and drink close by - we strongly recommend the Lookout for drinks and Enrico's
A great location , with good food and fantastic value for anybody staying from the UK. The spa treatment we had was exceptional

Superb hotel

Posted Nov 14, 2013
Pros: We loved the atmosphere and the decor which harmonised so well with the seaside location.
Cons: Swimming pools too small but not sure what could be done about that
Location: Out if the main season Plettenberg is a delight with plenty of local attractions. In the busy Christmas season it must be a bit of a nightmare.
A great place to stay with excellent well trained staff. We were particularly impressed by the fact that the lovely general manager was on hand at breakfast, pouring the coffee, chatting and making sure that guests were comfortable. Our room was beautifully decorated with a great view of the sea. We had dinner at the hotel each night and the standard of cuisine was high.

I predict a riot... A very nice one though!

Posted Jan 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
A very nice hotel, overlooking the bay. Unfortunate to have to endure the staff protests outside our room, but the staff did their best to offer a great service, in tricky circumstances. A shame that the hotel don't seem to respond to emails. Oh... The restaurant (Seafood) was great. All in all, well worth a night or two.... Just don't go when there's strike action!

Fantastic place to stay

Posted Jan 2, 2013
The Plettenberg Hotel is a delight to stay at. We stayed for three nights during a three week holiday, and it definitely rates in the top tier of places to stay. The staff and facilities are excellent.
