I would recommend Tarn Country House to anyone willing to stay around Plettenberg Bay in a beautiful & calm place, with a great view and a very welcoming staff. Very good value for money! Thanks a lot!

We loved the situation, the friendly staff and the delicious meals, and would happily have another holiday from there. It is an excellent place from where to explore that part of the country, and not too big.

We stayed at Tarn for five nights with our 1.5 yo son and were treated with such warmth and hospitality! The place is beautiful with gorgeous views of the mountains. The rooms were very comfortable and Natalie and Erica went out of their way to make us feel at home. We had a lovely three course dinner every night and...

This is a really beautiful place to stay, in a brilliant location, both for the views and the nearby attractions - in hindsight, unless you just want beaches, much better to stay in The Crags than in Plettenberg Bay. The owner and her daughter were absolutely lovely and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had...

My wife and I spent two nights at Tarn on either side of the Otter Trail. Natalie and Erica were both incredibly welcoming. The two rooms we stayed in were lovely with very comfortable beds. We were blown away by the delicious dinner on both of our nights. The view from Tarn across the valley is awesome. We'll definitely be...

Exemplary place - no other word for it. From the minute we arrived until even after we left, we were made to feel like unique guests. Room overlooked the lovely pool and stunning mountain views. Sitting by the pool, we heard nothing but the breeze and birds - a lovely way to spend a December day. Natalie (the owner) was...

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 year old daughter and had a fantastic time. Natalie greeted us and gave us a thorough overview of the hotel and an honest overview of the most suitable activities in the area. The room provided was spacious, comfortable and clean. Our room was a few yards away from the swimming pool, and...

Tarn Country House is a lovely place to stay for some nights on your trip on the garden route. The property is located close to Plettenberg bay but far enough to get a quiet and peaceful time in a beautiful surrounding. The rooms are nice and clean, the garden is well looked after and Erica (owner and chef) cooks delicious...

Thank you for a relaxing and welcoming stay. Tarn Country House is a little gem with cosy rooms in a magnificent setting. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and certainly set us up for the next part of our road trip. A perfect spot to stop!
