Swallows Nest Guest House in Plettenberg Bay

Swallows Nest Guest House is situated within walking distance of the lagoon and the beach. You can be assured of a very memorable visit to Plettenberg Bay, which is called "The Jewel of the Garden Route."

We offer five luxury rooms which are all luxuriously appointed to cater to your every need. Each room includes a complimentary sherry on arrival, a TV with DStv, a bar fridge, tea and coffee-making facilities, a ceiling fan and a private patio. Electric blankets and heaters are supplied for winter and there are laundry facilities available.

The unique and most exciting feature of this area is the abundance of marine mammals in the bay, which is flanked by two marine nature reserves and therefore rich in food for the resident whales and dolphins. During July to September every year, the southern right whales migrate to this part of the Indian Ocean to calve. There are boat trips all year round to see brydes whales and dolphins.

Cozy and friendly guesthouse in the centre of Plett. Great for individuals, couples and families looking for an affordable place to stay. 2 minutes from the major shops, and 3 mins from the main strip, and equally close to the beaches.

Excellent evening spent there. Room is lovely - everything you need is on hand. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. The staff are so cheerful and ready to assist without batting an eye lid. A little bit on the pricey side, but worth every cent.

review by Chandos Schultz

"Very nice place to stay."

We had booked what we thought was one of the smaller rooms but this was huge and designed in a mini suite style. The place was clean and the staff friendly and helpful with local places to visit and restaurant recommendations. Easy to find but perhaps not as near to a swimming beach as we wold have liked, this still only being a 3/5 minute drive. Very near to a beach with good walks though

review by Anonymous, South Africa

"The breakfast was super"

Swallow's nest has an amazing bunch of people who are extremely warm & friendly. The breakfast was super..the best spread that we came across. The B&B is extremely comfortable and luxurious. Gerald helped us choose some brilliant restaurants for dinner!
