Seaside Accommodation in Plettenberg Bay…
The Georgian-styled building is designed for spaciousness, reflecting the vast unlimited landscape surrounding it, without sacrificing its ambiance or intimacy. This is epitomized by the airy double-storeyed foyer, the large yet cosy restaurant, the private patios and balconies, and large breakfast and sundowner terrace, that afford spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, Keurbooms River Mouth, Keurbooms Lagoon and Tsitsikamma Mountains.
“Stunning Beach Hotel”
Stunning location right on the beach. We were upgraded as we were celebrating a birthday, so had a lovely balcony room. Reception and restaurant staff were very helpful. Ate in the restaurant attached on first night and at a great fish restaurant in Knysna on recommendation of the hotel. Only stayed two nights and wished we had stayed three. Hotel employs people to clean your car on a daily basis which is an added bonus. Could see whales from restaurant whilst eating breakfast.

There is a sense of vastness and freedom, not easily achieved elsewhere. But then, the property forms a peninsula, protruding into the river mouth, and has no neighbours but nature. The eleven rooms offers guest the ultimate experience in seaside accommodation and the essence that is Plettenberg Bay is surely epitomised by the fresh ocean breezes and sea sound scape.
Guests enjoy relaxing on the terrace, watching the birdlife and especially the sea and mountains as they change all the time. The ocean’s white-crested waves enter the lagoon’s mouth directly in front and interact with the lagoon, forming a wild cauldron as they clash at one moment, or peacefully mingling with each other six hours later, leaving a surface as smooth as a mirror.
In high season, there is in front of the Manor the additional spectacle of different boats entering the ocean or returning, and the fishing activity in the lagoon itself. This is not a place to easily get bored!
