Unfortunately, we cannot recommend this hotel. It's a pity that the beauty of the place is spoiled by everything else, starting with the unfriendly staff, the dirt, the uncomfortable bed, the tasteless restaurant and breakfast. Only place in South Africa where we have felt that...the tourist is JUST business. Big spiders in the room and the bathroom, my wife couldn't sleep all night. Worst hotel of our stay, a stop we would have like to avoid. Not recommended.More

We went on Friday night which was pizza night. The choices were very different and delicious. There was music and dancing so a great atmosphere. Desserts were the best we tasted on our trip.

Firstly we have to say that Nceba our waitress was absolutely brilliant and the service was great. The food was very tasty as usual and the ambience was good.

I was really looking forward to dinner, having not eaten here for a decade or more. I regret to say the whole experience was average. From a too small table for our family, to being rushed through the courses, to dull food, it was all...a bit of a let down. We wont be returning.More

What a spot! Booked ages ago for a group dinner. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was exceptional. Great wine list. Definitely worth a visit. My only regret is that we could not return for dinner tonight!

Amazing setting, quirky decor and interesting menu. All very promising until it came to the service. Staff were not really interested, forgot who ordered what, never made eye contact, and cleared up very quickly - obviously keen to close up. Seems like management has there...eye off the ball. Hope it was just an off night as its a fabulous setting.More

Spent our anniversary at Emily's and so glad we did! The food was outstanding, pork belly crispy skin and moist and the pork bon bons for a starter were devine, with a spicy chutney. The Chocolate Fondant with pistachio ice cream was the glorious finish....The ambience and atmosphere by the fire was beautiful. Emily Moon Restaurant never dissapoints! Go there!More

We stayed for two nights here as part of our garden route holiday. Everything was fantastic. The owner Grant makes sure he greets all guests at breakfast which is a nice touch. He will give lots of local advice about what to do and where...to go. Fabulous stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone. Restaurant also great.More

As usual, a great experience at Emily Moon’s - they always seem to get it right! Interesting menu, always consistent food and service and of course an atmosphere that is very special. As a vegetarian, I’m a big fan of the Cauliflower dish as well...as the Haloumi salad. My husband and friends were very happy with the fillet, kudo ravioli and lamb. We like to go by about 5:30 so we can have a drink while it’s still light outside. Thanks again to the team for another great Emily’s experience!More

We go to Plett every year and this is our favourite place. You cannot beat the views and decor. However such a change noted this year. We went twice to be sure and both times were very unimpressed. Our waiter on the second visit was...bored & rude, no charisma that the lovely staff usually have. Like quite a few of the other waiters we interacted with, just didn’t feel like they wanted to be there. It feels too busy now, like the hotel is taking away from the restaurant. The food was not great- same curry sauce for my starter and main. Husbands chips with his steak were a greasy mess. One of the kids pizzas turned up 20 minutes after we had all eaten. This pizza and the earlier arriving one were soggy based and inedible. Amazed that after complaining that the pizza was very late (and rubbish) it was left on the bill. The bills were very expensive and did not reflect the good food we are so used to after 10 years of visiting. Such a shame… please go back to how you were as we have always loved this place!More
