It was so soothing falling asleep to the sound of the frogs and waking to the bird song. The room was large and comfortable (luxury suite). The only very...

Lily Pond was enchanting from the moment Faith greeted us at reception and showed us to our fabulous room. The setting is wonderful overlooking the tranquil lily pond and all the rooms are sufficiently private but have the same great view. The building is modern but blends with the pond and surrounding forest perfectly. Our room was wonderful and we...

The rooms are actually very good. Service also great. (Breakfast very good, though Recommend Enrico's for lunch or supper). [annoying TripAdvisor (becoming complacent and arrogant?) compulsory blurb from here to allow submission with 200+ words, yawn]

The accommodation was good but only a twin bed option was available. The Food offered was breakfast which was very good and an evening meal with very limited choice. The idea is fine dining but we would have preferred a la Carey and a less formal atmosphere.

We stayed at Lilly Pond for two days during our journey along the coast. The staff was very hospitable, breakfast and dinner were excellent and we stayed in a nice and comfortable room. It is a great place to relax. We hope to come back one day!

The location, service, food was absolutely fantastic and the accommodation, well the attention to detail was unbelievable. When we were taken into our apartment I welled up with emotion, it was unbelievable. We stayed here for 2 nights but could have easily have stayed longer. If you stay here I really recommend the evening meals and breakfast.

Excellent location while travelling along the Garden Route. The accommodation was luxurious with large patio doors looking out on to the most beautiful lily pond and gardens. Staff was friendly and very helpful with suggestions of places to visit nearby. Loved the little touches offered, e.g. our car was cleaned early every morning.
