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.

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.

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.

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.

We absolutely loved our stay at Bayside Lodge. We only ever stay at the best rated hotels/b&bs and we were not disappointed! Adrienne and Bernie are such an integral part of Bayside's success. A hotel is just a hotel - but if you add caring, friendly hosts to the mix, people who care about making your stay special and memorable......

A really warm welcome from the hosts started the stay off really well. A beautiful lodge in gardens any British gardener would have been proud of. We stayed in a cottage in the grounds near the pool, which was lovely. An open plan lounge/kitchen was very comfortable with a separate bedroom with bathroom ensuite was up a few stairs, very...
