The Plettenberg is a great, small luxury hotel where service is very attentive and all staff pay good attention to detail. A good complimentary mini-bar. Fabulous views and a good location for the town. Whilst the bathroom was absolutely fine I would say that these are probably the next thing to be done on the list to advance the standard to the best on the market, ie, walk in rain showers etc.
