Great accommodation in a rustic, village style setting in an historic location
This is a unique property with 22 exquisitely decorated rooms in individual historically styled cottages set around a ‘village green’. The dramatic backcloth is the Tsitsikamma Mountains. There are also some more rooms set in rustic log buildings. The property dates back to the 1840s with the original Hunters Pub supplying weary travelers negotiating the tortuous Storms River Pass, which is still in operation as a walking and mountain biking trail, that starts close to the hotel.
About the Location
Storms River Village is the home of Storms River Adventures which offers an amazing zip line experience 90 ft above the floor of the forest. Here you will see majestic specimens of the indigenous trees in this temperate rain forest as you speed from tree to tree high in the canopy. They also offer mountain biking, tubing on the Storms River, kayaking and abseiling. The nearby Tsitsikamma National Coastal Park has dramatic coastal scenery, some of the earliest evidence of human habitation in Africa and an extensive boardwalk to a pedestrian suspension bridge across the Storms River Mouth. There are numerous hiking trails including the start of The Otter Trail which is a 5 day hike to Nature’s Valley close to Plettenberg Bay.
