We have just returned from doing the Garden Route, organised by Trailfinders. Lairds Lodge was an absolute highlight. The warmth of the staff, which was consistent with everyone we met made us feel really welcome and so relaxed, nothing was too much trouble and it was outstanding. We have had good service at most of the other places we stayed,... More

This was a return trip to Laird's Lodge, we had stayed there a few years ago. We were delighted to hear that our room was to be upgraded in recognition of our loyalty, lovely touch! The welcome was wonderful, with glass of sparkling wine and lunch in the courtyard, and we enjoyed the chef's demo before dinner on our first... More

It took us 1 hour to get to our room - another (large) party arrived at the same time. No problem, we sat on the terrace area for an hour, I then started to search for staff to take us to our room,,,,found one, we were not shown around the area or explained anything about room (more on that later.)....

Fantastic experience from start to finish. When arrived on first of four nights looked at menu and thought might have made a mistake as the menu was 'not us' but decided to try it and how wrong we were. Every meal was a total joy and when on our last day we didn't 'fancy' the menu they gave us a... More

It is difficult to to underestimate the quality of the accommodation, the food, welcome and service from the staff at The Laird's Lodge; beautiful setting, extremely comfortable rooms and superb food. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff no matter what request was made. The set menu on offer each day by the executive chef added an element of... More

We had the pleasure of dining in their restaurant for the second year running. We arrived at 7 pm and was given a welcoming glass of sparkling wine. At 7.30 we had some wine tasting before sitting down for dinner at 8pm. We can only describe the dinning experience as amazing. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. You can... More

We arrived late afternoon for a two-night stay, to be greeted by two burly staff of a surly and even threatening air. They eventually opined without enthusiasm that we would like them to take our cases. They led us through the grounds to the end of three suites in a bungalow terrace and showed us into a spacious but dark,... More

Our co- ordinator, Pinky summed it up perfectly in a staff meeting " Guys don't get demotivated after a review like this ..it just makes us stronger..remember the hundreds of happy guests we have had through our doors..we can't win them all " We can't agree more. More

Lairds Lodge is an outstanding place to stay. The very well designed interior, with a variety of sitting areas to suit all occasions, the level of service, the comfort of the rooms and the surrounding grounds make for a lovely experience. The dining room is a delight and the food and wine choices, wonderful. Sharing a large dining table with... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in this beautiful hotel. Cleverly designed lounges and beautiful surroundings made for a very luxurious environment. The staff were a great team who did as much as they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. When we questioned the idea of eating on one big table with the other guests, they... More

The staff at lairds was very welcoming. I feel that a bottle of water in the room would always be necessary since there is no minibar. The no tv factor is a down fall. The pool does not appear inviting. Decor and grounds superb.
