We had a great time here. Even though nobody said anything because of our honeymoon we had an awesome time! The food was great. You have to eat here every night! We can't wait to come back! We stayed 2 nights, next time we would stay for one week.

We stayed at Lairds Lodge for one night and were treated to a very African lodge style accommodation with amazing food. We felt very pampered at all times and the nightly turn-down service was so sweet with the warm teddies. Would recommend this for couples.

Situated 10km west of Plettenberg on the N2 (opposite the entrance to the Elephant park) its a bit isolated, but has a pleasant walled garden and we stayed here for 2 nights as part of a trip along the garden route. Very much a boutique hotel with fabulous decorations in the communal rooms and a sumptuous bedroom with separate shower... More

Stayed here for 2 nights & such a lovely experience! It's like old world charm. Good service, excellent wine collection & good food. Not too far from Plettenberg Bay. Must try the restaurant Zinzi close by. Got good information from the reception regarding the activities to be done around the place.

We arrived to a very warm welcome and never before have we been taken from the car straight to our room - no handing in of passports and vouchers, just straight to our room. The formalities were dealt with afterwards in a very relaxed manner. Lovely room, clean and tidy and excellent house keeping. The lodge itself was very welcoming,... More

We booked one night here on the recommendation of good friends who had stayed there last year. We were not disappointed, the place is just great. Set in lovely grounds the original house has a high vaulted ceiling and feels so welcoming. When we arrived we were checked in and quickly shown to our room across the courtyard at the... More
