My daughter and I spent four nights there. We LOVED it! Beautifully furnished spacious room with lovely king -size bed. Own private courtyard with fish pond. The view from the patio is breathtaking - mountains, lagoon, sea. The staff are friendly and efficient. We'll definitely be going again!

Iron framed beds very high off the ground although there are lovely footstools to get up there. Stand alone bath in bedroom.... massive soft towels....

We stayed for one night in April, in a sea view room and the view was amazing, right across the bay. The hotel itself is vintage style and serves a good breakfast. If you are a fan of clean and crisp looking hotels do not stay here. The hotel is clean but the vintage look could put some people off....

Enjoyed breakfast at The Grand twice, whilst in Plett recently. The vibe in this little boutique hotel is great. The views from the outside terrace are fantastic. Quality of food and service were excellent. Will definitely be back.

One of the best boutique hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms are amazing with stunning views. I'm fussy over beds and the bed was perfect. The staff couldn't do enough for you. Only small Mona is I'd like a larger food menu and to see more good food offerings.

We stayed for a night at the Grand Africa Rooms recently, and I am utterly obsessed with it. Our check-in was dead easy, the receptionist (Haley?) was wonderful, quick and friendly. She showed us to our room (No. 6) and briefly around the hotel. Our room was amazing, it was actually more of a suite than just a room. Old...
