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!

Pros: The facilities were extremely fresh, modern and clean. The breakfast was very delicious.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: All
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I cannot imagine there could be a better place to stay in the area. We arrived late afternoon to discover that there was an organized strike of service workers in the area which meant that all stores, restaurants, laundry services, etc. were closed because there was no staff able to work. Our hosts Peter and Sandra went out of their way to throw together a last minute “family” dinner for all of us. Sandra rushed to the only supermarket nearby that was open (so did we for wine and essentials) and picked up what was needed. I think we all contributed some drinks but Peter and Sandra insisted on presenting us all with a fabulous meal. It was a huge hit. Everyone had a great time. The property is architecturally amazing and our room was a walkout to the pool which made it seem even larger. We set an alarm so we wouldn’t miss the sunrise which was glowing red and orange... stunning. Breakfast was perfect. The location was 5 minutes drive to Robberg Nature Preserve for a wonderful day of hiking which included an enormous colony of seals. I would definitely stay again.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Bellamanga Country House - Plettenberg Bay - Building

9.5 Excellent (208 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Bellamanga Country House in Plettenberg Bay, you'll be 12.2 mi (19.7 km) from Jukani Wildlife Park and 12.3 mi (19.8 km) from Garden Route Wolf Sanctuary. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Bella Manga is a little haven off the beaten track, and the hosts are simply amazing and welcoming. The setting is extremely special and the honesty bar a lovely touch. We also had a great deal of excellent recommendations. Our cabin was absolutely huge and had an amazing wooden fire with three big bedrooms. We saw monkeys wondering around the farm, unfortunately we couldn't use the BBQ or make full use of sitting out under the stars as we had a terrible storm. Our hosts came to check on us in the morning to check everything was ok which I felt was an excellent touch.
Cons: For the cost, I felt that the bathrooms could have been updated and the pool closest to us was shut down as it required repair. I also had anticipated that they had a cafe/restaurant following on from the photos I had seen, but this is for their wedding weekends and does not cater for guests staying there. It is purely self catering. However, I think this was my mistake when making the booking and the farm is only a 15 minute drive away from restaurants and bars.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic peaceful place. Great hosts who were knowledgeable about the area and always willing to go that extra mile. Breakfasts were excellent
Cons: We stayed on the cottages which were 300m from the main site, some of our group were uncomfortable about having to walk through the cows to get to the main camp but they were no real issue and pretty much ignored us
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The best way to experience Afrika! This collection of historic buildings is in the middle of the country side with monkeys visiting you (from a safe distance) in the morning, beautiful views during breakfast and everything you need to relax during the day (And night). Everything is very clean and well maintained and the staff super friendly! You can enjoy the pool, pet animals, go for a nice long countryside walk, visit Plettenberg/Robberg or just chill. All the luxury you need for a super price. This is Africa at it's best!

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: No major downsides. The room provided a seating area with TV, which we wouldn't normally use much, but the seats were single seater and very upright old fashioned type, would have been nice to have a more relaxing sofa. No generator for the inevitable South African power cuts (others in the area do have them). Location requires a car or Uber.

7.1 Good
Pros: Good big room. Comfortable. Nice grounds. Good quality food.
Cons: Expensive for what you got. Wi Fi did not work and three days on the trot they promised that they would call an engineer but never saw one. Dinner somewhat inflexible in that you have to choose by 4 pm and all sit down at the time they decide - not ideal for a place costing what this did. Staff friendly and reasonably efficient but no more and scruffy. Does not compare with other high end places where staff have proper uniforms not off white tee shirts.

Pros: Amazing, it looks like it came from a fairytale. Situated in a forest, just around monkeyland. Fantastic common area (patio with pool and amazing view, dinner area), incredible room with just glasses around and Forest's view (don't worry about privacy, none can see you!!), every single detail is not casual. We enjoyed breakfast and 3 course dinner, very good, very original. We joined the exclusive spa for 2 hours, in the evening, with jacuzzi, sauna, all the atmosphere, in the middle of the forest with just glass around and amazing view. The last but not the list, the kindness of workers and the mascotte (lovely cat). Thank you

10.0 Excellent
Pros: They upgraded is immediately upon arriving as there was only one other couple there. The spa package was absolutely amazing! If you go here you must not miss this experience. We had incredible massages and then 2 hours in the spa to ourselves with champagne and snacks. It was outstanding!! The resident cat diesel was absolutely adorable and spent the night with us! He was quieter than our cats at home- he didn’t make a sound. Room was the best place I’ve ever stayed in- the honeymoon suite was as romantic as it gets. Staff were super kind and helpful.
Cons: The only thing that wasn’t beyond amazing for us was the evening meal. The atmosphere and service were both outstanding, but the quality of food was fine. Nothing to complain about at all, but compared to everything else which was far behind outstanding it was average.

Pros: The hotel is secluded, exclusive and in an absolutely stunning location. It is a glass walled treehouse in an indiginous forest with resident monkeys On arrival we were upgraded to the amazing Honeymoon suite which is a room beyond any room I have ever stayed in before. The staff made the experience extra special, by adding those personal touches that made you feel you were part of the family rather than just a guest. Thanks to Jana,, Marko, Bruce and Emrick for giving us a wonderful time. The highlight of the stay was provided by Diezel the guest relations officer (the resident cat) who chose us and kept us warm in bed. He is a lovely cat and we hope he will be in the hotel for many years to come. We will return specifically to see Diezel. Thanks again to everyone at Trogon. It was definitely the highlight of our holiday.
Cons: Nothing, everything was outstandingly.

The special touch of a key ring on check out just warmed our hearts. Really beautiful
Cons: We loved everything!!!
