“superb quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We stayed in the new self-catering unit. It is extremely well-appointed - everything of the highest quality and included the use of a washing machine. This unit also has two patio areas with comfortable seating and a private entrance separate from the main guesthouse. You have to go down and up quite a few steps to go across there for breakfast, which again is of a great quality.

The accommodation, speed of service, friendly and efficient staff and cleanliness cannot be surpassed. I feel so comfortable in my spacious, modern suite. (I stayed in room 4.) There is off-road parking and one feels secure. I am a perfectionist and have worked in management in the five-star hotel industry and it is a relief to receive outstanding service instead of having to tolerate mediocre service. Christiana Lodge exceeded my expectations. After you look at other accommodation photographs, you will appreciate the lovely, modern furnishings! This place looks exactly like the photographs. Overall, a wonderful experience and I would recommend this place to families, business travellers and anyone else.

Room Tip: Certain rooms have wifi and aircon, so ask for one if these are your prerequisites. If you are older...

We stayed 3 night at Christiana Lodge, and it was absolutely amazing.
From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. After a long drive from Cape Town we enjoyed a nice 3 course meal at the lodge. The restaurant is cosy and nice, and the food was lovely.
We stayed in room 5 - a perfect room with two balconies (one with sunbeds), two showers (inside and outside), bathtub, refrigerator, etc.
The beach is 2 min walk from the lodge., and its perfect for a morning/afternoonwalk.
Christa was very helpfull with everything and gave us plenty of recommendations, helped us book tables at restaurants and a townshiptour. She recommended us to do the hiking trail at Robberg nature reserve, and we was so glad. It was beautiful.
To celebrate my birthday she helped us book a table at Zinzi. This was probably the best meal we had in our intire trip (3,5 weeks).
Thank you Christa and your staff for making our last days in SA so perfect.

Plettenberg in the summer might not be the best place to stay for older people but we like staying after all where this hotel was superb. The room was very big, well decorated and very clean. The information we received at arrival was very useful. During our stay we had and very much enjoyed a lovely diner prepared by the friend of the owner.

We were not sure about the setting initally as it seemed so far out of town BUT we quickly grew to love this place. The beach was lovely and had a magical boardwalk to it. We liked the quirky features of our room and also felt comfortable playing cards in the communal areas. The food cooked by Christa's friend was outstanding; we were lucky to be there for her first evening and enjoyed an informal delicious communal meal and fun company.

I can only echo all the fabulous things everyone has said about Christiana Lodge! Renata was very attentive throughout our 2 night stay. We had a lovely dinner at the lodge our first night, which was prepared by Christa's friend. The second night they had reserved dinner at Zinzi, about 10km. west of Plett. It was also one of the best on our trip. We stayed in room 5 which has a small view of the bay and an expansive view of the wetlands out back. Both balconies were great places to sip wine and relax. We did the entire Robberg hike around the point. When they say bring water and sunscreen they definitely mean it! I reapplied 3 times and still was burned...however it was one of the prettiest hikes we've done. I'd recommend taking along a picnic to have on the beach! Thanks you Christa, Renata and your entire staff for a wonderful stay!
