Beatiful Little Family Hotel

Review of The Old Rectory
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 May 2024
A beatiful place nestled by the beach at Plettenburg. Our final stop on our 11day tour of South Africa, 1 night was not enough to lap up what this small town has to offer.

A small family owned hotel offers large rooms with good ammenities. The Hotel is a short walk to the beach, which gave us an opportunity to see the sun come up.
Parking is available on site, and a shuttle service is available to get you around

The breakfast was exceptionally good and set us up for our drive to Port Elizabeth

Thanks Bianca and team for making our short stay a very pleasant one, hope to return again in the future.

A lovely three night stay at The Old Rectory. Fascinating historical building now converted into a boutique hotel. The history was explained to us when we checked in. Do check out the old black & white photographs of the Old Rectory and Plettenberg which are non display
We were slightly disappointed that we didn’t have a view from our room (we later discovered that we should have had a pool view room ) ….. but never mind the privacy which we had, and sound of the Ocean at night more than made up for that.
We ate twice at the hotel restaurant which was very nice and also at the Plettenberg Hotel Restaurant which was also good.
Would definitely recommend this hotel if staying in Plett.

Lovely hotel on the bay, walking distance from the beach. Spacious, comfortable and modern room. Excellent breakfast menu with cold buffet options. Nice pool and decking. A poem rolled up on the bed when the room was turned down for the night was a very nice touch. Great restaurants nearby- The Fat Fish (5 mins drive) and Ristorante Enrico (15 mins drive)

A very good hotel, well-located and well-run. Very warm and friendly staff, sizeable and comfortable rooms and a restaurant that surprises with its excellence. The Valentines Day dinner, sitting outside, was magnificent. We both had the Salmon Tataki starter and the Line Fish (Carpenter) mains. Very generous portions and delicious. The Old Rectory delivers.

Very comfortable rooms, terrific service led by Bianca and her team. Nice pool area, good food, especially breakfast and well located near beach and Main Street. Good massage available in comfortable on site spa. Many restaurants within walking distance or 5 min car ride. If we return to Plett we will stay here again.
