My husband and I stayed 3nights at Lairds Lodge on our honeymoon and we were simply blown away. It was by far the best place we stayed on our whole trip to South Africa, in every respect. The place itself is just stunning. The gardens were so beautiful, the pool area looked (and felt) like something out of a magazine;...

We had three nights at 'Lairds Lodge' and enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was one of those in a separate building a few minutes walk from the main house. On the small side but well appointed and with a good bathroom and shower. The dining room in the main house is very nice and serves excellent food and...

My wife and I have eaten in many good restaurants in London and elsewhere and there is absolutely no doubt in our minds that chef Bee Bee and his team including deputy head chef Bheke are extremely talented and gastronomically creative individuals. Their food is very very good indeed, if not exceptional. The only down side is the regime. First...

Stayed here with my husband at the beginning of November and had a wonderful time here. Staff are really helpful and attentive, room was spotlessly clean and the food was fantastic - even though I am ceoliac nothing was to much trouble for them - highly recommend as a place to stay.

Good base for Plettenberg Bay and the great walks at Robberg peninsular and Tsitsikamma park. Not much in the immediate vicinity but the garden is lovely and the key factor is the exceptional quality and friendly service. Pre-dinner drinks gives a chance to chat to fellow guests and you have the option to eat dinner at a communal table (we...

Excellent hotel in terms of service, cleanliness and general quality. The only down-side to us was the fact that although the food for the evening meal was obviously of a high quality, it was a set meal with no choice what so ever, meaning that if the meal wasn't of your choice you then had to travel into Plettenberg Bay...

It's hard to find somewhere better than Lairds Lodge! This is a superb place to stay, with wonderful staff (particularly Bani and Gobani) who couldn't have made us feel more welcome and relaxed. As well as fabulous service they offered excellent advice on what to see and do in the area and were very willing to make any bookings for...

We had three nights here and decided to eat in the restaurant each evening. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and I would recommend it. The location is just off the N2 making access to Plettenberg Bay and the Garden Route very easy

We stayed at Lairds Lodge for 4 nights. Very comfortable large suite in a great location. Excellent food but limited in choice...which meant we ate out every night apart from the night we arrived. Plettenburg Bay has some great restaurants, notably Fat Fish and Hunters Lodge (just up the road from Lairds Lodge) The Lookout is a great place for...

A beautiful place to stay. Excellent service from very friendly staff. The room was lovely but didn't have any drawer space which would have been useful especially by the bedside. Also the shower although powerful, was not great. The grounds were particularly nice and our car was washed twice while we were there on a 3 night stay. The food...
