This lodge has a great setting and very good infrastructure to really turn it into a luxury lodge. As it stands, the word luxury certainly is not fitting. The toiletries were very basic and the food terrible to say the least. I could have done a better job myself and I am certainly not the best of cooks!! The service is very attentive but a bit clueless. For this price, overall a poor experience. I would say this is not a reflection of the staff who were very friendly but of management who should know better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our beautiful Plett Accommodation is a historic and charming colonial-style Safari Lodge that was built in early 1800 by Baron Joachim von Plettenberg, an early South African pioneer and conservationist, who used the original, smaller Lodge as his base to explore the then untamed African landscapes. Built from local stone, the Safari Lodge has lost little of its original 'out of Africa' feel and has spectacular views across rolling lawns where zebra and antelope roam freely, to the indigenous forests and majestic Tsitsikamma mountains in the distance. ... more less
