We stayed for a few days at Lairds Lodge as part of our honeymoon in South Africa. We had a wonderful welcome of wine, chocolates and rose petals and our room was absolutely huge and so comfortable. We ate at Lairds for two nights and it was absolutely delicious- could not recommend enough! The real asset of this place is... More

The food was DELICIOUS, both breakfast and dinners. DO NOT miss dinner!! No need to go anywhere else. The dining and lounge areas were exquisitely decorated and comfortable. But I LOVED the guys! I wanted to take them home! I must say, that although the rooms were large in size, perhaps some updating was needed a bit in the rooms... More

We stayed 2 nights in the nicest type of room. It was spacious, I had a great nights sleep. The staff were great, however some of the gardeners were a little strange and looked at you as you walked around...a bit odd. The food is adventurous, some of the breakfasts missed the mark but others were great. The aircon was... More

What a fantastic place to stay. The gardens are beautiful. Very homeley, warm and romantic atmosphere. The food is excellent. 10 out of 10 for the chef. But the cherry on top are the staff. Very very professional, friendly and helpful. You guys thank you for your hospitality. Will definitely see you again.
