4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
It is a beautiful property and well thought through. The only problem is that the infrastructure seems to break down a lot and the staff don’t seem to handle it well. On our second day we had no electricity for the afternoon. When they tried to fix it we were left with no water. Then they managed to get cold water. Next they arranged for us to shower in another unit. They had to be reminded to bring us a key for that room. That evening when the turn down staff came they took the key. We did not notice until the morning when we needed to have a shower. We must have gone to the front desk 6 times to deal with the issue. We had a plane to catch the next morning so this just added to the stress. They offered us a bottle of wine as compensation but we were getting on a plane so it was no use to us. The food was generally good but for some reason the salads we ordered on the second night were not edible.

Homely vibe in the forest with super service
We stayed at Hog Hollow for one night as wanted to experience another side of Plettenberg. It’s got a real jungle/forest vibe in the hills. We arrived really early but they let us check in straight away which I loved and also gave us lots of suggestions on things to do. Our room was cosy, nicely decorated, lovely log fire. If I was being really penickity Id say it had a slightly musty smell but I think this is just a by product of location and it went with the fire burning. They helped us do a walk through the forest (wear insect repellent if you do this!) and then picked us up after which was handy. Service was really good all round. The staff even washed our car for us which was greatly appreciated! Lovely pool to recline by looking out into the forest and then we did the in-house set menu in the evening which was lovely too. Great stay for a night or two.
