Great view point and good breakfast
Really nice hotel and lovely stuff specially the General Manger. However , although I booked via hotels and forgot to mention it’s our honeymoon I did mention that while I arrived to the lady at the reception and nothing was done about that. We almost 2 weeks in SA traveling and this is the first hotel that didn’t congratulate us for that. In addition we got a room with a view to the parking area, we were told the the windows are double glass but we heard everything from outside and also from the corridor inside. I still recommend this hotel because of the view from the dining room, the food and the comfortable bed. I will Mention agin that the General Manager really care about his guest he really do but unfortunately the we’re missing in the small things such as our honeymoon

A Banting breakfast needs tomato juice!
Always a special treat to stay at The Plettenberg, as we have been doing so for over 30 years now, and to see familiar faces such as Martha!! An extra treat was seeing at least 100 dolphins leaping and swimming along the shore line! The only slight disappointment was no tomato juice served at breakfast and then an extra charge was added for this.

Too expensive for the value we got.
With these prices not up to standard. The hotel seemed to be a bit run down.

The plettenberg was a great place to stay. The service was excellent, the staff friendly
David, za3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Enjoyable, but no Wow factor
There were many aspects of our stay that we enjoyed. However, a 5 star hotel should deliver and be a cut above the rest. We were slightly disappointed. Some of the staff were truly 5 star quality, but some required more training. There was a problem with demonstrators whilst we were staying, and the staff that were able to get to work were fabulous. The restaurant was supposed to be exceptional, but we found the menu limited. Breakfast was a disappointment for 5 stars. Overall, we would give this experience 4.5 stars, or lower 5 star establishment.

Beautiful hotel
Fabulous hotel, only issue was incredibly slow service at lunch and breakfast. All the staff we met were excellent; friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful even at entry level, pool is small and close to the restaurant so feels a bit cramped but the view is to die for. Would stay again.
