We stayed here for 4 nights. Initially we were not too happy with the room allocated but the hotel offered us a much more attractive room which we happily accepted. This was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were very good, with an extensive range of items on offer. There are two issues...

Lairds Lodge was one of six hotels we stayed in in South Africa and stood out for its warmth & friendliness from the moment we walked in. There was a cosy feel to the whole place, both public areas and excellent bedrooms, the staff couldn`t have been more helpful & friendly and the food superb. We would love to go...

The staff were so nice and very helpful. We relaxed straight away, helped by a complimentary glass of fizz. They had great knowledge of the area and plenty of suggestions of what we could do with our time. Rooms, food and general surroundings were all amazing. Thank you all so much.

The lodge is in the middle of nowhere but it is absolutely stunning and a completely tranquil place. The rooms are very big, spacious and modern. The lodge itself is decorated as it would probably have been back when it was a colonial home which gives it an authentic feel. The staff are all very friendly and keen to help...

Had dinner one evening and a truly first rate dining experience preceded by gathering for drinks in a convivial setting. Staff extremely attentive and helpful throughout our stay. Generous sized room. Nice location outside of Plettenberg Bay and ideal base...

A nice wee surprise to have attended here as it was my travel agents 2nd choice due to the other being fully booked, but can I say that I am glad it was. We arrived far too early before check-in time but staff took our suitcases and just told us to head off and enjoy ourselves. On return we were...

Our stay was made by the friendliness of the staff. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but had a great breakfast with home baking, in a really pretty courtyard setting. It's a few miles to the west of Plettenberg Bay but an easy drive
