Great Host!
Nice and cosy accommodation, large room with garden and ocean view. What more could you wish for! A little bit cold at nights at the beginning but with the heater on for a couple of hours and the electric blankets, no discomfort felt at all. Breakfast was also good! Thank you Katherine for having us! Thank you for the good tips! You were very kind and helpful!

Great stay. First choice when back in Plattenberg Bay
Welcome, nice property, good night sleep, very good communication and info from the owner and a great offer for breakfast. Better and served personally for each guest. Everything was as displayed on the booking tool.


Great valueGuest House
Convenient position just off N2. Clean rooms. Comfortable patio area and swimming pool kept to high standard, great for a swim before breakfast. Breakfast was a delight with fresh fruit salad, joghurt, fresh muffins and then a choice of eggs and bacon with plenty of hot coffee available. Lady manager was friendly and gave us great tips for good restaurants in the area. Quiet area and parking available.

Peaceful, safe, secure accommodation with very helpful hosts
Had a great time in Plettenberg Bay and this spotless guest house didn’t disappoint. The room we had was very comfortable with a nice balcony to relax on. Although the bathroom is probably due an upgrade, everything was spotless and functional and we had no issues at all. Don’t miss the breakfast in the morning, it definitely set us up for the day..! Big thanks to all staff who were so helpful and we certainly wouldn’t hesitate to return.


Very nice guest house
Very friendly host, nice and cute location, excellent service and breakfast, familyfriendly, we would definetly come back as we enjoyed our short stay a lot and felt very comfortable and welcome. Thanks for that!


Beautiful Guest House
This guest house and it’s location made our 2 night stop in Plett an incredible one. It’s perfectly located in terms of access to Pletts excursions and the local bars and restaurants are just a short 2 minute drive away. The breakfasts were lovely and the room extremely relaxing. We would 100% return to this guest house and also recommend to friends and family.


Highly recommended
We really enjoyed our stay there very much. Everything is fine, the service, the staff (very helpful, friendly and attentive) , the place, the bright room with the balcony and very good beds, the garden, the breakfast. Erika speaks German, which may be convenient for German tourists.
We have been staying there for the second time and didn’t regret it in the least. There was no air condition but we didn’t need one, the fan was sufficient.
It is not far to the city centre, but you need a car to get to it, also to the restaurants and to the sea. In the morning it was sometimes a bit loud because of the traffic but as we went to bed relatively early, it did’t bother us too much.


Great Holiday
We had a lovely stay in Plettenberg Bay at the Mandalay Guest House. Well located nearby the Main Street. Very friendly Staff. Great breakfast. Erika was very helpful to us. Bathroom of the Appartment a bit small . But otherwise a nice place.


Everything about Mandalay guest house was perfect. we enjoyed everything about it we received a very warm welcoming from staff member. we would love to use Mandalay guest house in our next trip.
thank you


Pleasant stay in a great guest house
The guest House is 10 walking minutes away from the main road and 5 more from the central beach. Very well located for trip to Monkey land or robberg nature reserve. Atmosphere is great and the breakfast is very good.

Most pleasant
What a lovely place, we just did an overnight stay, but wish we could have stayed longer so that we could have lolled on the loungers around the pool in the tranquil garden. Very clean and comfortable and a warm welcome..

So cozy!
We stayed here for a night and loved it. The room is very nicely decorated and the bed is very confortable ( they even have a bed heater! ). Breakfast was really good, very varied, including different types of cereals, yoghurt, cheese, cold meats, eggs, coffee, tea… The owner is really nice and welcoming and the lady that served our breakfast was very helpful giving us directions and suggestions on our trip. I wouldn’t look any further if I was to come back!

Lovely place!
We had a great staying in Mandalay Guest House during our trip through Garden Route. We were welcomed by Erika, that gave us a map and showed us a lot of options of restaurants and things to do in Plett. Mandalay is a charming place, lovely gardens! Our room had a balcony with pool view, so beautiful, so bad we had just one night to spend and it was a rainy day… The room was spacious, clean, flowers decorating. Great wifi speed and a lot of options on cable TV. There is a parking area in front of the building, but it is not behind the gate. There was a fee for the extra bed we asked for our toddler. On the next day, we joined Erika for a continental breakfast, everything fresh made (not included in the room rate). The neighborhood is residential, quiet. It is located near N2 and downtown, but not in a walking distance. Definitely recommend the place.

Great place to stay
We where very happy with the reception on arrival, condition of the rooms and over all appearance of the guest house. The breakfast was brilliant and was made with every effort to make it personal and to our individual taste. Edith the host was not in your face but there when you needed her. In conclusion we would not have an issue with referring this place to our friends and family. Great place to stay.

Fabulous place to stay
A truly lovely guest house, clean, modern room. Need a car/taxi to get to local amenities. Erika, the owner was so helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and provided gluten free bread though we had not requested this prior to booking. Fab breakfast and a glorious stay.

Lovely room, amazing service
We arrived in Plett without a car at 10pm and Erika was kind enough to collect us and show us to our room even though it was so late, even giving us a quick lay of the land and a map. The room was lovely and very comfortable, the guesthouse was close to town (a quick 15min walk to Main Road). All-in-all, I’d book here again.

Delightful Place
A charming small guest house, ideal for couples. We had a room on first floor with a pleasant balcony than ran the length of the house overlooking the garden. The swimming pool was pristine and the room was comfortable and spotless.
Breakfast is available if requested on check-in. However, we actually went into town and went to our favourite cafe.

Sandy R - York, United Kingdom

Great stay
Booked for 8 nights with a little baby. Everything was fine. Just 5 minutes to drive to the beach and about 20 minutes to some attractions like monkey land. Erika was great, had a ton of information for us. Rooms were spacy,enough place For the baby cod. Only thing: we woke up too early, because the rooms were pretty bright in the morning and the baby woke up:)

Perfect stay
The service was very good. The owner of the place was very kind and helpfull. The breakfast was also good. The room was nice and clean. The location of the place is also a plus. It’s pretty quite at night. Therefore we slept very well.

Favorite among all stays on the Garden Route!
We stayed at Mandalay Guest House only one night and I immediately wished we could stay longer. Such a sweet little spot to stay on the Garden Route – immediately felt at home after being warmly greeted by Erika, the manager. Thoughtful touches like fresh petals in the room, a full kitchen with water stocked, maps with most popular locations and recommendations – and a beautiful pool and garden! Homemade breakfast by the pool with the company of a friendly pup was the highlight of my stay.
