Beatifully furnished boutique hotel a few miles from the coast. Exquisite food, extensive wine cellar and friendly staff made for a very pleasant two day stay. Attracts a lot of UK custom. Would certainly have a holiday break there again.

A beautiful lodge with excellent facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast and dinner area made you feel right at home. The dinner meal was definitely a 6 star. If ever in the area again it will be my top choice to stay.

We stayed at the Lodge for 2 nights. It is within easy reach of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay both of which are worth seeing. The services was very good and the BBQ food (optional) was pretty tasty. We liked the rooms very much. They were spacious and had enough chairs and tables to make you feel at home. The atmosphere...

Very nice place, with good facilities and a very friendly staff. Breakfast and dinner was perfect for a good price. Location outside of Plettenberg Bay is the only argument why we dus not rare excellent.

The location was special and so the stay. It was very special to get a glass off Cap Classique by arrival. The Staff was very friendly and well trained. The breakfast was good and you can spent time there enjoying the farm feeling.

Lairds is a lovely place to stay, the decorations are fabolous and the food is great - except för for the barbeque which we did not like so much. It also turned out very expensive for our daughter who is a vegetarian - 325 ZAR for a salad! Also, do not order any picnic! Lairds charged us 150 ZAR pp...

Oops ....There’s nothing worse than that ripped off feeling So, firstly our sincere apologies ..... it was definitely not intentional. Our Braai night is relatively new and has gone down extremely well, as it gives guests a chance to try traditional foods from our Rainbow nation and to interact with our chefs and team for a casual dining experience.

We have stayed here many times and am never disappointed, there is always a warm welcome and impeccable service. The rooms are luxuriously appointed and so comfortable. We always eat here as the food is amazing, we can't imagine eating anywhere else. Go, you will not be disappointed.

This is our second visit in 2016 and we were not disappointed as our memories of a beautiful place, beautiful staff and all round comfort lived up to every expectation. We shall return as the lodge is ideally placed for Plettenberg Bay but just far enough out of town to give it a rural and tranquil feel.
