We stayed at the Lodge for 2 nights. It is within easy reach of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay both of which are worth seeing. The services was very good and the BBQ food (optional) was pretty tasty. We liked the rooms very much. They were spacious and had enough chairs and tables to make you feel at home. The atmosphere...

Very nice place, with good facilities and a very friendly staff. Breakfast and dinner was perfect for a good price. Location outside of Plettenberg Bay is the only argument why we dus not rare excellent.

The location was special and so the stay. It was very special to get a glass off Cap Classique by arrival. The Staff was very friendly and well trained. The breakfast was good and you can spent time there enjoying the farm feeling.

Lairds is a lovely place to stay, the decorations are fabolous and the food is great - except för for the barbeque which we did not like so much. It also turned out very expensive for our daughter who is a vegetarian - 325 ZAR for a salad! Also, do not order any picnic! Lairds charged us 150 ZAR pp...

Oops ....There’s nothing worse than that ripped off feeling So, firstly our sincere apologies ..... it was definitely not intentional. Our Braai night is relatively new and has gone down extremely well, as it gives guests a chance to try traditional foods from our Rainbow nation and to interact with our chefs and team for a casual dining experience.

We have stayed here many times and am never disappointed, there is always a warm welcome and impeccable service. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and so comfortable. We always eat here as the food is amazing, we can't imagine eating anywhere else. Go, you will not be disappointed.

This is our second visit in 2016 and we were not disappointed as our memories of a beautiful place, beautiful staff and all round comfort lived up to every expectation. We shall return as the lodge is ideally placed for Plettenberg Bay but just far enough out of town to give it a rural and tranquil feel.

One for the foodies. This hotel was first class, we ate in every night as the food was outstanding. There was only one choice on the menu and the hotel needed to know before lunch if you wanted to stay for dinner...this said it all. All of the small touches were catered for and the place was utterly picturesque. There...

The facilities of this hotel are old colonial in nature but with a modern twist that is achieved very cleverly. The food is superb, with some quite amazing combinations of local and South African based dishes. Desserts were also amazing with great thought and skill evident. The facilities in our room, room 1 were excellent with our own small court...
