Great Location in Plettenburg Bay

Review of The Old Rectory
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 02 Nov 2021
The Old Rectory is a beautiful property, and the location is excellent. The beds were also super comfy, and service was wonderful. Also -the breakfast was delicious. We stayed for two nights, and even though the weather wasn't great, we enjoyed it. Highly recommend hiking around the Robberg Nature Reserve which is about 15 mins away by drive - it is stunning!

We stayed 2 nights here and really liked it. A peaceful, relaxed vibe, but rooms are luxurious and chic - our room (2) was very spacious with an enormous shower room, and a private verandah. Super comfy bed and quality linen. Staff were delightful and very helpful, and happy to chat to us and give a bit of historical info on the lovely old building. We had superb massages in the small spa. Food delicious. Breakfast slightly limited choice, and its a little strange to order your breakfast the night before, but this is due to covid restrictions. Waiter Johnny does indeed make the best cappuccino in Plett! We would definitely stay here again if we return to Plett.

Service, rooms etc absolutely amazing. I stayed on my own and nothing was to much trouble for anyone working there. Very special place and I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Plettenberg Bay.

A beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Plett town. Having stayed in summer and winter I would say a summer stay in much more enjoyable as there is a stunning pool area and lovely outdoor tables for breakfast in the summer. It is also a very short walk to the beach.

The rooms are comfortable but on the small side
