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...

We live in South Africa for a few months every year and decided on a Garden Route trip at almost no notice. Most places were full, but Laird's Lodge had had a cancellation. It turned out be be fantastic luck for us! An old style property, run by the current owner for 20 years. Everything reflects a gentler, kinder and...

We have just thee nights at Lairds Lodge as part of our honeymoon. It was the highlight of our stay. The food, service and accommadation was excellent. We ate there two nights with one night in Zinzis. It is equally as good as Zinzis for food. We will be back! Thanks, Hugh&Avril

The hotel is in a quiet rural location although there is the occasional noise of aircraft, presumably from the local airfield. The people here are exceptional and do everything to make sure you have a lovely time and generally enjoy yourself. Drinks are served at 7.30 followed by dinner at 8pm and seating is arranged by the staff with a...
