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.

This is a beautiful place with amazing food but the real prize is the staff, they were amazing Great place to chill especially if you are in the middle of a full on garden route tour. Quite a way from town but everything is here so just relax.

We spent 3 nights here. It’s a beautiful place and beautifully decorated although in a rather overstuffed, over-cluttered way. Our room, no 2, was in the main building. It was one of the standard rooms (smallest and minus a mini bar) consisting of a bedroom and seating area with a small paved courtyard (not private) giving on to the gardens....

Stayed for 3 nights . he location is 8km out of Plet, but well worth it. Lovely accomodation. Service and food were really excellent. Breakfasts were a real treat. The staff were very professional and helpful on advice for local things to do. Robberg Island was close and well worth the visit.

We booked for 2 nights and enjoyed it so much that we extended to 3 nights. We had one of their best rooms, and it did not dissapoint. The attention to detail was wonderful, from little touches in the room, through to the excellent staff. Food was of the highest standard and nothing was too much trouble. The pool area...

The location was perfect, just off the N2 with easy access to Plattenberg Bay. The guest room was very well finished, with a lovely patio to have some morning tea, but don't leave the doors open in case the monkeys get in! Unfortunately, we did not see any monkeys. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had...
