Our family had a celebration for my mom's 80th birthday in our very special place in the world-Sedgefield. My parents and 2 nephews stayed in the family room in Pelican Lodge for 2 weeks. Everything about it, from the accommodation to the breakfasts and friendly owner and manager, was a delight. We had numerous braais and bonfires around the gorgeous... More

Wonderful four nights at Pelican Lodge. Ian most hospitable. Spoilt us with a birthday treat. Breakfasts top class. Room very comfortable. Great base to visit Knysna, local forests and relaxing time on the beach. All good here. .............

We recently stayed at Pelican Lodge during the busy December season. Our hosts were Ian and his mom Jean, who welcomed us and explained all the wonderful things to do in the area. We had the George room which was tastefully decorated and had all the home comforts we needed. The beds were very comfortable and linen crisp. We loved... More

The units are spacious and comfortable, some of the furnishings are getting old, but adequate. Temperatures in the rooms get really warm, given a lack of air con and can get noisy at times, given people coming and going. Braai facilities worked well, rooms are serviced daily, but cleaners need some supervision, bare minimum is cleaned and not really well.... More

We spent ten nights at Pelican Lodge over the busy Christmas period and really enjoyed our stay. Sedgefield is a slow and sleepy little hamlet, but is in close proximity to all the attractions of the Garden Route. Ian and Jean were very attentive hosts - and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.... More

We stayed at Pelican Lodge at the beginning of November 2015 on our way to Port Elizabeth. The host (Ian) was very helpful and friendly, as were all the staff. Ian allowed us to park our vehicle inside his property as we were loaded full of luggage and the only parking seems to be on-street parking. The breakfast was brilliant... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The accommodation was clean, spacious, and homely. Our rooms were private and overlooked a pretty garden. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great. Easy to find just off the main road.

Rooms very clean and smelt fresh. There is an Air conditioner in room. Get rusks with coffee in your room. Soaps and shampoos were of very good quality and more than enough. Had wonderful breakfasts and large variety of food. Staff very helpful and could not do enough for me. Went skydiving and close to skydiving venue. I would recommend... More
