Beautiful modern decorated lodge. Friendly, warm and attentive service. Linen was squeeky clean and we received fresh towels everyday. Lovely breakfast. A place to relax and feel at home. Thank you Christa. We would have loved to stay longer.

It was a good lodge but the house keeping service was appalling linen etc were hardly changed. The service of the breakfast team was good but if someone reaches late night please have provision for food or you will be sleeping hungry. Park your cars inside. In general it was ok. If you have time there are other options as... More

At Christiana Lodge we try to be as eco-friendly as possible (as do most of our guests) and therefore change bed linen every three days. This, I believe, it standard practice in any 4-star guesthouse. However, dirty linen is changed immediately. Towels are changed more often, usually every second day. Dirty towels are changed daily. Our rooms have extra-length king-size... More

Loved it all - the stunning but simple decor, the hospitality and warmth of Christa and her team, the sliding doors and balcony looking onto the veld, the sound of the birds..... The fantastic quality of the food at breakfast - swimming pool and tranquility as well as lovely walks........

Spacious rooms, some accessible via staircases, quiet location, easy access to beautiful beach, unobtrusive but attentive service, cool architecture and ambiance. Dinner on request, but then excellent - need to book in advance. In summary : highly recommendable.

The lodge is magnificent , the setting and architecture quite relaxed. Beautiful spacious rooms , two salt water pools on the property . A very short walk to the beach. The breakfast is simple yet classy and all the staff are polite and customer oriented. You truly get a sense of being home. Christa the owner is hands on and... More

Christiana Lodge is a beautiful, spacious, light filled modern guest house. We were recommended this location by our hosts in Capetown and it was beyond expectation. Within walking distance of a long beach, and handy for Plettenberg Bay where we enjoyed some delicious fish at Fat Fish. The Lodge is a beautifully decorated, elegant well run establishment with a charming... More

Plettenberg bay over dec holidays is a crazy, busy seaside town, but staying at Christiana lodge is an oasis of calm and tranquility , the beautiful accommodation has a ' holiday feel ' that simply soothes the soul. Christa and her staff are just divine !! We have stayed here before and we will definitely be back for more !!!

It was a good experience from the very start. Christa wrote to me with a list of restaurants so that she could secure reservations well in time. The location is very good, just a walk from the beach and a secure corner with a night guard too. Plenty parking and good security. The room given to me was away from... More

All that has been remarked upon in previous reviews is true. The contemporary lodge with its thoughtful architecture and purposeful charming decor blend well into its environs. The staff is so helpful and friendly that it seemed like they could not do enough for their guests. Apple compote crepes are a 'must have '-like most everything else! Christa holds a... More
