    The Plettenberg Bay hotel is faultless. The staff, accomodation and service were all first class and the views from the pool and verandas are out of this world. We were able to watch wales breaching and pods of dolphins from the poolside.

    The restaurant is fantastic if a little pricey by SA standards and breakfast was equally enjoyable with a good choice of continental style and/or cooked breakfasts. If you enjoy a sophisticated drink, then the Sand Bar is the place. Try a Plettenberg Martini.

    I can't say enough in praise of Lisa and her team.

    Unique Quality: The infinity pools, semi-private terraces and relaxed ambience around the whole hotel is superb. The service is unobtrusive and relaxed and every single member of staff is friendly and helpful.

Welcome Home

by Alain_Smeets about Four seasons guesthouse

Great rooms with detail for quality and with the perfect hostess Nolene.

Luxury 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home with enclosed sun lounge, laundry facilities. Patio, sea views, close to town and beach.

And the breakfast was phenomenal. When we stopped, at this guesthouse, a nice dark lady comes out and says welcome home, welcome home. This surprised us, but this was the way that she greeted everybody there. We already felt at home thanks to Nolene.

You have a very nice view over Plettenberg Bay and the city itself.

Cottage Pie

by myriam_c about Cottage Pie

"Cottage Pie" is a luxury B&B located in Plettenberg Bay, just 2 min. walk from beautiful Robberg Beach. Location of the cottage is very quiet and has private parking in front of the house. There's a small tropical garden with swimming pool and open-air breakfast area.

The South African owners, Frik and Nerine, are the most hospitable people we've ever met. They really do anything to please their guests and to provide them with information. The cottage has 8 luxury rooms with en-suite bathroom (bath and/or shower). All the rooms have a private entrance, ours had a patio overlooking the garden and swimming pool. Minibar, tea-coffee making facilities, TV, hair dryer, etc.

The breakfast served every morning is to die for: a typical South African warm breakfast + a huge buffet with fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, various sorts of breads and cold meats/cheeses.

Nerine is a perfect hostess and she has an eye for detail. I will never forget the beautiful table linen (different pattern and color every morning) with matching china.

Knysna / Plettenberg

by myriam_c

Hi all,
Another question: which would be nicer to stay for a few days: Knysna or Plettenberg, and why?
We want to visit Knysna National Lake area, Wilderness and Tsitsikamma. And chill out on the beach for a day.
Thanks!

Re: Knysna / Plettenberg

by Ursular

Hi Myriam,

I would suggest that you stay in Knysna. Since you're visiting in April, it will be off-peak season and Plettenberg Bay will be verrrry quiet, since it is a summer holiday town. Knysna, on the other hand, has lots to offer in both summer and winter. It is a quaint little town with lots to see, lovely restaurants, a waterfront and lovely places to stay at. It is also in close proximity to the places you want to visit, namely, Wilderness and Tsitsikamma. You will also be able to visit Plettenberg Bay whilst staying in Knysna - it will be a good idea to visit it when you decide to visit Tsitsikamma, since it is in the same general direction. Wilderness is however in opposite direction to Tsitsikamma.

I hope I've helped somewhat.

Warm regards,
Ursula

Thank you very much, Ursula.
Then I suppose it would be better to stay in Knysna town instead of Leisure Isle? Do you happen to know a nice B&B?

Hi again Myriam,

I have come across a website which gives you a list of the available accommodation in Knysna (and other cities and towns in South Africa). The link follows below:

I hope it helps somewhat.

Here's the address for the Knysna tourism website;

www.knysna-info.co.za

A must see for that area is the Outeniqua Choo-Choo - A steam train that runs between George & Knysna
On certain days they have trains departing from and returning to Knysna in addition to the regular George - Knysna - George run.
The trip takes you through some really spectacular scenery. The transport museum at the George end of the journey is also well worth a visit although it still requires a few finishing touches.

Another new feature in Knysna is the paddle steamer that started operating there a few months ago and the of course there are the Knysna oysters.

I would definitely choose Knysna - lovely spot.

If you are looking for a spot to chill, head out to East Head. You will find two cafes there and just under the first one is a kind of public swimming place - a small wooden deck perched over the sea. I thought this place was heaven - a safe place to swim, beautiful views, virtually private, and a cafe nearby serving great food !! Broke my heart to leave.

BTW - check out 34 degrees South in Knysna - cool shop and restaurant.
