stayed for 3 nights very comfortable guest house. Bernie and Adrienne very friendly and helpful hosts. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach. Good hearty breakfast and very comfortable rooms. The restaurants are a little further but that's not an issue for us. Highly recommended.

Our six day stay at Bayside Lodge was one of the highlights of our seven week stay in South Africa. From the time of our arrival Adrienne and Bernie could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The accommodation and public areas were maintained to a high standard. The staff were always cheerful and obliging. There was no lack of... More

Bayside Lodge is a fabulous B & B. We were met on arrival with a chilled fresh orange drink and cold face cloths which - on a 31degree day - was most welcome. Adrienne was helpful in recommending places for dinner. Our room was lovely and the bed most comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and a good place to chat with... More

We were a family of four and stayed for three nights in the family suite. It was lovely and comfortable with a king size bed and twin beds for the kids. Our hosts were extremely helpful with information about activities and restaurants, and even managed to get us discount on a few of the activities. The breakfasts were stunning -... More

The guest house itself is lovely, the rooms are spacious and we had a very large bathroom which was great. Breakfast was really good too-lots of choice available and... More

I would definitely recommend bayside lodge. We had such a wonderful time there during our matric holiday. Bernie and Adrienne were excellent hosts. The lodge is close to the beach and all the rooms have a great view of Plettenberg Bay.

Thanks so much Jeanette for this great review - it is wonderful see a guest write "lovely views" - even though we don't have views of the beach and sea, the suites overlook a gorgeous garden and a beautiful residential suburb of Plett - away from the noisy centre of town. More

To be honest, Bayside Lodge wasn’t my first choice, the other two places I’d stayed at before having no availability. But I looked on Tripadvisor and thought, OK I’ll give it a go. And I’m very glad I did. What a great place to stay – definitely in my Top 5 over the past 6 years of coming to SA:... More

Wonderful find in Plettenberg. We were welcomed with fruit juice and refreshing towels after our journey and it just continued to get better.
