What a breathtakingly beautiful place! From arrival to departure it was perfect. Erica was a fantastic host/chef and nothing was too much trouble. All meals (half board) were superb. The accommodation was excellent and tastefully decorated and the views were incredible. Great situation within easy reach of all that the area has to offer. Sad to leave. Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

On top of the world on the Garden Route
We stayed at Tarn in the middle of the South African winter which feels like a crisp fall day in the US. Tarn's location on top of a hill off the main highway alone the Garden Route is spectacular, surrounded by gorgeous high green hills and lovely grass lawns. Rooms are comfortable and border on a small pool and welcoming places to relax and enjoy the calm and lovely surroundings. Erlka and her daughter Natalie, the owner and her daughter, made our visit so much more enjoyable by spending extra time with us at breakfast and offering to drive us to town and to an exciting walk with Cheetahs! If you are driving it will be easier to get to Plettensburg Bay but cabs are readily available. Highly recommended for those who want beautiful and quiet time as you wander through the lovel Garden Route.

4/10 Fair

A welcome and end of stay very unpleasant!
We were very disappointed and surprised at the particularly cold welcome from our host! We arrived at 6.30 pm as I had stated in my reservation after a very long drive from Cape Town and she made us realize that it was late to her liking! I had booked for my 2 daughters and I with the dinner included but she still made us understand that it bothered us to prepare dinner! Also, we got very cold in the room and despite our delande it did not provide heating. Finally, my biggest surprise came on the day of departure: when I had booked for a total of 263 € she told me that I owed: 183 € more! Then, after telephoning the reservation center she recognized her error. Same for the drinks of the dinner that she wanted to charge us at an exorbitant price! In short, I am very displeased with this stay, very expensive and very unpleasant !

Limpeza e organização excelentes!
Como estávamos de passagem para Cape Town ficamos hospedados apenas uma noite, uma pena pois achei o local maravilhoso! A senhora que nos atendeu foi super atenciosa e nos deu uma dica excelente de um restaurante italiano sensacional a beira do mar. Tudo muito limpo e organizado. Recomendo com certeza!
