A beautiful new Gazebo has...

Staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. Extremely clean and very professionally run and when departing, even our car had been washed for the onward journey. We...

The welcome was not warm. We arrived at 2.30pm, to be told the room would not be ready for a while, and that if we wanted a welcome drink, this would be charged. We were hot and tired from the journey, and other places in S.A. had not made that mistake. After this, things improved. The room was lovely, and...

We stayed at Lairds Lodge for three nights and have to say, it was simply wonderful! Our choice on booking was a beachfront hotel in Plett or slightly inland to Lairds, I have absolutely no regrets about having chosen Lairds and can't wait to return! Everything about the place is tranquil and relaxed, the staff are so friendly and helpful...

We enjoyed some aspects of our stay but overall I think there are much better options in Plettenberg/ Harkerville. Food was good but the rooms need more improvement. Bad smell of damp in our room and there's been limited decor improvements made to cover up the old 60/ 70's feel of the place. Older generation seemed to love it. At...
