The hotel was good and the direct beach location was great. The rooms are a bit old, but designed with a lot of love. The service and breakfast were absolutely fantastic. We enjoyed our time and can recommend it to others.

We were welcomed at Scallop Lodge by Heidi the guesthouse owner with Cappuccino. A very nice and helpful host. The guesthouse has a great Pool and is located near the ocean (3 min by foot). The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast in the lodge was very tasty and varied. In addition, there was a parking Garage, Wi-Fi and a safe. We had an unforgettable time and would come back anytime. Kind regards, Maxi and Julia

Booking was confirmed and then it was cancelled by the owner of this guesthouse, claiming that the booking system did not work correctly. Surprisingly this was made transparent quite some time after the booking. WATCH OUT as you can not plan with this guesthouse and booking may be cancelled shortly before arrival.

This 5 bedroom B and B is designed so well. Beautiful interior design and a lot of space. The ladies who run the incredible breakfasts are lovely. Rooms are spacious, very clean and well equipped. However. The wifi is appalling. I needed to send an urgent email and had to go to the nearest cafe to send. We needed to skype family on Christmas Day and had to use 4g. Manager said there wasn’t a problem. There was. Also. It’s not walkable into town so you either need to drive or get a taxi. No Uber in Plett. Beautiful place. Would give five stars if wifi was working.

Fantastic location, room, facilities, staff, breakfast....perfect - only downside is shared/ communal area if ppl come in drunk and watch TV at midnight but perfect otherwise 😀 Beach is 3mins’ walk away and is beautiful to relax and stroll upon.

We actually spent 3 nights at scallop and 2 nights at periwinkle - we preferred scallop. Pros - the in-house staff were incredibly friendly, taking time to get to know us and super helpful in recommending things to do, places to eat etc. - our room was really nice and had access out to the pool area. We had an inside and outside shower, bathroom was really big actually and also beach towels and beach bag are included to each room. - parking, each room is given access to a private parking space behind the garage door - breakfast was excellent with good choice of cold and hot foods. Coffees, Tea, fruit included and a good selection of drinks for 20 rand each which was fine. - laundry service was very cheap for 200rand and meant we had all our clothes clean for the next part of our journey Cons - not directly on the beach, however really this isn’t a con as the beach is a pleasant 10 minute walk through the lovely area - very small pool, more of a plunge pool - check in isn’t great as had to drive to periwinkle having arrived at scallop and then back again. We was not told this therefore a little annoying as we had drove that day from Hermanus. Loved our stay in Plett and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Scallop - if in Plett again we won’t hesitate to stay here!
