Our Guest room was spacious and well appointed. Eunice, who was also responsible for our breakfast, was friendly and helpful whenever we needed her. The close proximity to the beach is amazing and you can walk tight down to Robberg ..amazing!

My advice for future visitors: expect the best, but prepare for the worst. My expectations were too high, and so, I was disappointed with this B&B that has so much potential! No one was on duty when I arrived to check-in just after 5pm. (They'd all gone home) My room must have been the tiniest, I was cramped. It felt...

Our room was a bit cramped, and all rooms are close to each other so if other children are noisy you will hear it as we did. We paid cash and got NO receipt, which meant we got a much better price than if we used a credit card with a receipt. It makes one wonder if they declare this...

Lovely position with view and direct access via a boardwalk to Plettenberg Bay but take note which boardwalk to return by! We upset the neighbours going up the wrong one! Bedrooms are not big, but nicely decorated, ensuite not big either but adequate. Big bed. Towel drier outside the door on communal verandah. Decor white Cape Cod style, nice, helpful...

Pretty B&B, with nice room. It is a bit far removed all the action in town. Close to the beach, though: fantastic background sound of waves hitting the shore. The manager was a bit absent and breakfast time is a bit off (8:30 - most of the activities require you to be in town at 9...). Yet, the rest of...

The site is still beautiful in front of the ocean-beach. The interior is still friendly, cosy victorian style. We have been there for two days in October 2014 on our roundtrip. The property was warmly recommended by friends who have been there seven years ago. But somehow, it did not meet our expectations. Some painting is needed. The rooms are...

A beautiful setting with an intimate feel about the place. The room was very tastefully decorated to the highest standard. Service was efficient and friendly. Breakfast was fresh and beautifully presented. We will definitely be back for an extended stay.

The accommodation is a colonial style property in a beautiful setting. The rooms and guest areas are extremely well decorated and presented; it was a little like staying in a Laura Ashley/New England catalogue/showroom. The bathroom had both a shower and a large bath, which was very welcome after a walk at the nature reserve. There is a board walk...

The location is good, overlooking Robberg Beach. The house is beautiful and garden well maintained. Rooms are clean and well maintained too, though some rooms are quite small. Breakfast was good as well, though it took a bit of time. The only real improvement can be in providing better toiletries in the bathroom.
