Laird's Lodge was the single friendliest place we have ever stayed. Staff were amazing the whole stay. The room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was brilliant and more than big enough to skip lunch! Although slightly outside Plettenberg Bay we were still very pleased to have stopped here. Would highly recommend

I had misplaced the directions so was very relieved to see the Laird's Lodge sign on the highway after a long drive from Hermanus. The staff are exceptionally solicitous, and the food above and beyond what we expected, both breakfast and dinner. Indeed, the dinners were so good that it would have been a mistake to have driven to Plettenberg... More

Most folks coming to the Plett area probably want to stay in town but you would be missing out on this amazing country lodge. We only had one night here but the experience was fantastic. Laird's is a great value and a lovely boutique hotel. Their attention to detail in every room of the lodge had me feeling as if... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon trip to South Africa, though I wish we had stayed longer as we had such a fabulous time here! From when we arrived staff went above and beyond to help us settle in. They were incredibly polite and helpful and really made us feel comfortable. The grounds and accommodation... More

We stayed at Lairds Lodge on a visit to the Garden Route in 2004 and loved the place. This was our first time back to the area since our original visit and we were interested to see if there had been any changes to the Lodge. We were delighted to find that the level of accommodation and the attentiveness of... More

We stayed in lairds lodge for two nights during our honeymoon. It is located down a narrow Rd just off the main road to plet bay so it is really private and gives the air of seclusion even though it is so close to the main road. The main lodge/communal area is fantastic the design of the interior is beautiful.... More

Our own small patio overlooking the lake. Saw lots of monkeys in the mornings. The food was excellent , as it was on our last visit.... More

We stayed here en route to Hermanus and Cape Town. So wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. Nothing to say other than absolutely wonderful. Helpful staff, food was beautiful and the rooms are sooooo comfortable. Would love to return and spend no less than 5 days next time.
