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...

Stayed 4 nights at Lairds and had a great time. Breakfasts outside and with beautifully presented fruit and cooked options. 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

I have travelled a lot and stayed in some beautiful hotels, but Lairds Lodge is special, not purely because of the hotel, its surroundings, the beautiful rooms and fantastic food. It is special because of its staff and the management. They have created a unique environment where they make you feel special, meal times mean you mix with other guests...

Lairds Lodge is the quintessential boutique hotel - so thoughtfully designed, personal service and high quality accommodation. The staff truly are superb and provided some of best service around - attentive, efficient but always friendly and with a smile. It doesn't get any better. The food at Lairds Lodge is also fantastic and great value. We joined the group table...

This lodge is incredible. Great rooms and bathrooms. Wonderful food - both breakfast and dinner. The greatest asset is the staff who couldn't be more helpful. Your car is even washed each morning! We stayed in room 9 - a separate lodge in the garden which is highly recommended

We stayed 2 nights in February as part of our Garden Route trip, we loved it and wished we had more time at Lairds Lodge. The service, food and our room were fantastic probably the best place we stayed in South Africa.
