“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed October 29, 2006

What a stunning place! Exceptional accommodation, food and service. So relaxed and chilled out, it was an absolute delight. Don't even consider staying anywhere else if you are going to Plettenberg Bay. Just wish we had spent more time there.

Stayed April 2006

Really excellent place to stay. Plettenberg Bay is lovely and Lairds Lodge is a really lovely guest house. The rooms are charming and very comfortable, the hotel is really warm and welcoming and the food is excellent. It feels luxurious but not at all stuffy. I would recommend Lairds Lodge wholeheartedly.

Our stay at Lairds Lodge was all that had been said by other guests on tripadvisor.
It is a very good place to be. Enormous rooms, nicely decorated, great food and a lot of attention. As it was winter in South Africa during our stay(had gorgeous weather every day) we returned to our room to find hot watterbottles dressed as a dog or other animal in our beds! We simply loved it.
Go and you'll see for yourself.

This hotel far exceeded our expectations. It has real old colonial charm and sumptuous, authentic decor. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The food is unbelievable - both the set dinner menu and the delicious breakfasts - and the staff are incredibly helpful and organised all our trips and excursions for us. I'd recommend this hotel to everyone I know and would refuse to believe anyone wouldn't have a fabulous time!
