This was an excellent place to stay... Great breakfast... The staff were attentive, enthusiastic and good to talk to.... The room over looked part of the bay and a tidal lagoon, which was very pleasant

We booked a standard twin room and found it very comfortable. The room and bathroom was very clean. The location of the hotel is perfect. Walking distance from everything. We however did not have many staff interaction but with check in and check out they were professional and friendly.

Room Tip: Room was facing on the main road and in busy times like plett rage the street might be very noisy. A...

We stayed here on a very last minute booking as the previous hotel we had booked was not all as it was made out to be..

We arrived and had booked the "honeymoon suite" (only room left) I would be very disappointed if I was on my honeymoon and turned up to a room like this. The sheets had all hairs etc on surely the maid had noticed this when making the bed??? The bathroom also had hairs all over the floor which is not ideal when getting out the shower with wet feet the room looks like it needs a good painting and refresh!

After a long drive and getting into bed all I could hear were the tables being dragged around outside in the restaurant as they were closing and the banging of doors as they were finishing, and low and behold again in the morning (maybe the staff should be told to be a lot quieter when opening and closing)

The only reason I gave this place a 3/5 instead of 2 is the location is brilliant close walking distance to shops and some lovely restaurants.

I have not much to say about this hotel, as i noticed no service, the room was not very nice, the room was hot as h*ll and the hotel was not very close to the beach. There is one good thing about this stay and that is the door to door restaurant that is "within" the hotel but is actually owned by a separate owner.

If I go to Plet again, I will not stay at this hotel..
