9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place for Plettenberg Bay! First, owners are the nicest people we have met in our trip- so welcoming and helpful. We really appreciated it! The place itself is soooo beautiful. Fantastic modern design. Everything was spot on- from the bed, shower, pool, to the plates and butter holder in the breakfast. The breakfast was so good! Every day they offer a special meal, which is really special (like blueberry almond pancakes!) which they make just for you along with a smoothie. Such a great way to start your day. And the view! Wow! I wouldn’t hesitate to book this place.
Cons: A bit more expensive than other places compared to what we saw in SA but I still think it is worth it. We were in their smallest room (I think) and if you have the budget try the bigger ones (amazing views!). The area is not very central and pretty dark at night, but if you’re with a car it doesn’t really matter.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were lovely and very helpful. Their home is very modern, stylish, full of thoughtful extras in the room too. The breakfast choices were very good.

Pros: The entire package made our stay a most memorable experience. Very highly recommended
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect for a stop off whilst driving the garden route- the property is very close to several great restaurants, activities such as dolphin and whale watching and a short walk to the beach, in a lovely secluded area. Plettenberg itself is a real gem. The property is gorgeous and the rooms very clean and beautifully decorated.The room was fully equipped with everything that you might need, split over two floors (Finch room)- so that the bedroom and bathroom were "upstairs" and the lounge and kitchen were downstairs. It was like being in your own house. There was a private outdoor space, BBQ and seating area- a great touch. Plenty of fresh towels, bath robes and crisp bed linen made it a very comfy stay indeed. We didn't get the chance to use the pool, but it was perfectly set up for relaxing with plenty of space and relaxing loungers, set in a lovely garden. Offers of restaurant bookings and further assistance, as well as an extensive guide to the area and discount vouchers were very welcome. The breakfast was well prepared and delicious- with a buffet and cooked breakfast along with great coffee. Highly recommended and exceptional value for money. Staff and owners were very welcoming, it really was like being at home. Thank you, we will be back :)
Cons: nothing, we were very happy with our stay and wished we could have stayed longer!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The owners were really friendly. The little extras in the room were many, not just tea and coffee but biscuits and fudge. There was even wine in the fridge ( extra if we used it) as well as milk and water. There was a light snack menu but they were happy to arrange a meal delivery from Town. There was also fresh fruit available if we wanted. There was a cosy bar, board games a large TV with very comfortable sofas and even a pool table! The place was more like a luxury boutique hotel than a guest house. I would have been very happy to spend longer.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is the tiles on the room floor, because it was very cold that day were cold on my feet. Perhaps a few rugs would help for these days.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Willie and Rina made us feel at home at their own house. We felt very safe. They opened to pool specially for us, and it was great.
Cons: The room was a bit small, and you need to climb narrow stairs to get the bedroom. More lighting in the room could be nice.

7.5 Good
Pros: The location was perfect and right on the beach. We could walk to The Grand at Lookout which was ideal. The breakfasts were very good.
Cons: The bed was very soft and we found ourselves in the middle of the bed struggling to climb out. We are not big people at all. The towels were very small and not very thick.

Breakfast was simple but nicely presented and good quality. Really nice looking pool but it was a little cold (which we chickened out using). Could not fault the place. Thank you Christine!

5.8 Okay
Pros: This place is why the booking ratings should be read very carefully. The hosts here are very nice and the views are fabulous. But here is where the good ends. The location is horrible. 20 minutes from the city and the last 5 minutes are in a remote dirt road. Don’t drive at night. We lived in a 3-bedroom apartment that was not even part of the facility. Remote away from the pool and the main facilities and without WiFi and almost no reception (not ok that they told us that only when we arrived). Not everything is bad. If you are looking for a remote and secluded place with beautiful surroundings, this is the place for you. It is all about managing expectations. And nothing prepared us for this...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The accommodation and its owners were indescribably warm and helpful. They gave us valuable tips about Plettenberg and South Africa. The accommodation is a dream for everyone who wants to get away from all and who is looking for a special experience. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished with everything you need. On the complex, you can find animals and you have various possibilities to relax in the hammock or to listen to the sounds of the animals on the porch. It was simply great.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We wanted to be close enough to Plett restaurants and beaches but sufficiently out of the fray, to be, well, above it. Bitou River Lodge more than delivered on all of these fronts. After a quick swim and Sue’s best-farm-breakfast-in-South-Africa we found ourselves taking to the hammock to watch the birds and strolling around the beautiful grounds only when moved. We learned much about the indigenous flora and fauna and still got to dip into the fabness that is Plett at peak season. Thanks Sue! We we will definitely be back.
Cons: We couldn’t buy it!

Pros: The entire package made our stay a most memorable experience. Very highly recommended
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect for a stop off whilst driving the garden route- the property is very close to several great restaurants, activities such as dolphin and whale watching and a short walk to the beach, in a lovely secluded area. Plettenberg itself is a real gem. The property is gorgeous and the rooms very clean and beautifully decorated.The room was fully equipped with everything that you might need, split over two floors (Finch room)- so that the bedroom and bathroom were "upstairs" and the lounge and kitchen were downstairs. It was like being in your own house. There was a private outdoor space, BBQ and seating area- a great touch. Plenty of fresh towels, bath robes and crisp bed linen made it a very comfy stay indeed. We didn't get the chance to use the pool, but it was perfectly set up for relaxing with plenty of space and relaxing loungers, set in a lovely garden. Offers of restaurant bookings and further assistance, as well as an extensive guide to the area and discount vouchers were very welcome. The breakfast was well prepared and delicious- with a buffet and cooked breakfast along with great coffee. Highly recommended and exceptional value for money. Staff and owners were very welcoming, it really was like being at home. Thank you, we will be back :)
Cons: nothing, we were very happy with our stay and wished we could have stayed longer!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place for Plettenberg Bay! First, owners are the nicest people we have met in our trip- so welcoming and helpful. We really appreciated it! The place itself is soooo beautiful. Fantastic modern design. Everything was spot on- from the bed, shower, pool, to the plates and butter holder in the breakfast. The breakfast was so good! Every day they offer a special meal, which is really special (like blueberry almond pancakes!) which they make just for you along with a smoothie. Such a great way to start your day. And the view! Wow! I wouldn’t hesitate to book this place.
Cons: A bit more expensive than other places compared to what we saw in SA but I still think it is worth it. We were in their smallest room (I think) and if you have the budget try the bigger ones (amazing views!). The area is not very central and pretty dark at night, but if you’re with a car it doesn’t really matter.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were lovely and very helpful. Their home is very modern, stylish, full of thoughtful extras in the room too. The breakfast choices were very good.
