If I could give Ian and the Pelican Lodge more than five stars I would! The Lodge is lovely, with park-like gardens, a pool, and pleasant outdoor seating. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed with modern fixtures in the bathrooms and wonderful showers. It is all exceptionally clean. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining room with indoor or...

We had a few days in Sedgefield for rest and relaxation, and were incredibly comfortable at Pelican Lodge. I could not fault this establishment in any way. The rooms were comfortable and well furnished, and the breakfast superb.

Heard about this B and B by word of mouth. Room was very comfortable, well appointed with a small balcony. Breakfast was excellent. Ian, proprietor, was very helpful and knowledgeable regards surrounding area and activities. Sedgefield is a quiet and inviting town, nestled between Knysna and Wilderness, with about 20 minute drive to each. We stayed an extra night. Town... More

Definitely worth a stop over if you plan to visit the Sedgefield area on the Garden Route, South Africa. Rooms are exceptionally well appointed, clean and neat. There's also a great English style pub across the road, with great food and hospitality. Definitely a winning combination. Breakfast at the lodge was pretty awesome too... Definitely highly recommend this hospitable spot,... More

This is a great stop on the Garden Route. It has self catering as well as bed and breakfast. The room I had was small, but comfortable and a great shower. I slept well in the comfortable bed. Breakfast was great. The fruit salad was well presented; for the rest, eggs as you want it. The proprieter, Ian, and his... More

The lodge is personally supervised by the proprietor and the service was very friendly and efficient. The lodge is conveniently situated for the N2 but without any road noise. It is thus a very convenient stopover for a trip along the Garden Route. The rooms are well-appointed and the breakfasts of a very high standard.

This is the 4th time we have stayed in Pelican Lodge. The level of service remains consistently high. The delectable leisurely breakfast ensured a happy day. Congratulations on the recent renovations and upgrade of the bathroom. Loved the new style and convenience. Warm regards Nell and Dido

Sedgefield is in between George and Knysna and if like us you want a little less tourist location then this is an ideal stop to break a journey on the garden route. We played golf twice but there are many courses quite close, Pelican lodge offers dinner and this is not to be missed. Make sure Ian makes his curries... More

We loved Pelican Lodge and in particular, Ian, the owner who has dedicated himsefl to creating the perfect bed and breakfast experience. His breakfasts are legendary and the service very personal and thoughtful. Mission accomplished!! If you are into beach walks, you will find three of the most highly rated beautiful beaches along the Garden Route in Sedgefield. Ian helped... More
