Unlike many hotels or guesthouses, the great staff here really love and know their jobs. As a result there is a relaxed constant inter-action which makes the stay so interesting. In the evening, honeymooners may sit at their own tables, but the fun is to sit on the long wooden table with other guests, and chat. The rooms, the food,... More

Having recently stayed at a Richard Branson owned hotel for the first time, we thought we knew what seamless discrete service was...this beautiful lodge showed us even better. The weather when we stayed at Laird's Lodge was awful, bar none it was the worst weather we experienced in our 2 & 1/2 weeks in South Africa, but we couldn't have... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a Garden Route tour. It was a rather quirky sort of place and appeared to be a bit disorganised. Actually I think the staff did all know what they were doing they just didn't communicate it too well to the guests. Room was very large and comfortable. Loads or wardrobes and a... More

This place and Stellenbosch was the highlight of our South African adventure. It's a fabulous hotel and the concept with the communal dinning in the evening was excellent. Breakfast could be a more private setting. But at dinner, we went for the big table to enjoy the company of the other touring guests. The Hotel itself has all the classic,... More

This hotel ranked high on our list. Our room was behind the main building & it had high quality furnishings. The food was to die for. It made such a change to get something a bit different to a regular cooked breakfast like French toast topped with banana & cheese.At breakfast, one member of staff would ask what our intentions...

Lairds Lodge is another wonderful gem close to Plettenberg. We spent two nights at the end of October and were spoiled rotten by dedicated staff who are there to make sure your stay is extra special. We will definitely recommend this beautiful Lodge. Thanks for a great stay.

Our two night stay in Lairds Lodge on October 20 and 21st was the icing on the cake of our wonderful trip to South Africa.Accommodation, food and service from dedicated staff was first class. We would defnately recommend this property to anyone visiting the Plettenburg Bay area.
