Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in March 2018

This is the poshest ‘tent’ that we have ever stayed in! It is very large and has a fab ensuite with his and hers washbasins and large bath. The outside shower allows you to feel at one with nature!! The location is on the main route into Plettenberg centre where you will find lots of excellent bars, shops and restaurants plus a beautiful long sandy beach. Paul and Becky were very friendly and helpful. Paul also told us he has lots of plans to further enhance the lodge tents experience including a pool, cooking area, barbecue and children’s play area.

Management response:

Many Thanks for your kind comments, we hope to welcome you back to view the enhancements soon.

Reviewed 4 April 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed for one week at Hillcrest Lodge and found the "glam tent" experience was really enjoyable, the double bed was very comfortable and the bathroom with a bath and outside shower was top quality.

Just on the outskirts of town it was only a few minutes to all the shops and restaurants that Plettenberg Bay has to offer with plenty of choice and menus to suit everyones budget!

if you want something different from the normal hotel or bed and breakfast / guest house then this is it!

Many Thanks for your kind comments, we hope to welcome you back soon.
