Bayside Lodge is a very good starting point for activities around Plett. Very close to the beach. Excellent breakfast. We stayed in the cottage in the garden. Which is a nice accommodation. It is between the trees and planting in the garden which we found a bit dark and humid in fall but might be very nice in summer. Bernie...

Dear Marco thank you so much for this review and all the valuable feedback. For winter we are going to trim the tree outside the sitting room as I am sure that will let more light in. We will also fold back the awning over the bedroom window which is good for afternoon sun in summer. We are so glad...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 March 2017

Visited Plettenberg Bay in late February and we really really got very lucky indeed. Adrienne and Bernie are superb hosts. Assisting organising trips, options and must do's/see's. Way over and above the call of duty. I cannot recommend Bayside Lodge enough. Simply wonderful and thank you again Adrienne and Bernie. We will return.

The room was neat and clean - owners were very helpful and gave us good advise about restaurants and things to do and to see. Breakfast was very good - parking a little bit tight. Thanks for friendly hospitality.

The warm welcome by the hosts included a welcoming drink and refreshing towels. The room was very nice, clean and spacious. The tips they gave me on eating out and sightseeing were spot on. So thanks for making my short stay worthwhile.

We had a very nice stay. The hosts are wonderful and are happy to give advice. They recommended two restaurants that we loved (the Fat Fish and a Mozambiquan restaurant). . Rooms are very comfortable and homey. Comfortable beds.

Many thanks for this review and it's great to hear that everything was comfortable -especially the beds considering you and your family also used the sofa bed in Harmony! The Fat Fish is a firm favourite and so is "LM" especially for children as the service is friendly and the food excellent. We hope you enjoyed Addo and Cape Town...

The best hosting we got during our trip in South Africa. Great service from the first moment, wonderful accommodation and breakfast, well equipped cottage. The owners are really care and helpful with recommendations about places to travel and restaurants. Plettenberg Bay is very nice place to stay while travelling the garden route.
