Lairds Lodge was the best accommodation we stayed in during our trip along the Garden Route, and by a long way. The building and grounds are decorated and maintained to an extremely high standard. The staff provide excellent service across all areas, everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent with the menu changed daily. The breakfasts were...

We stayed at Lairds Lodge for three nights and have to say, it was simply wonderful! Our choice on booking was a beachfront hotel in Plett or slightly inland to Lairds, I have absolutely no regrets about having chosen Lairds and can't wait to return! Everything about the place is tranquil and relaxed, the staff are so friendly and helpful...

We enjoyed some aspects of our stay but overall I think there are much better options in Plettenberg/ Harkerville. Food was good but the rooms need more improvement. Bad smell of damp in our room and there's been limited decor improvements made to cover up the old 60/ 70's feel of the place. Older generation seemed to love it. At...

We stayed four nights in this very interesting old style country lodge. It is kept beautifully. Our room (6) off the courtyard was large and cool. We dined in two of the nights and enjoyed the group atmosphere and fine food. Perfect setting for a murder mystery! The staff were all very helpful and courteous. My only improvement would be...

I can't give Laird's Lodge high enough praise - absolutely loved it. Our room was beautiful, spacious and luxurious, with great attention to detail. The lodge itself is homely but gorgeous - very sophisticated. The atmosphere is that of a country house party, with everyone meeting for drinks before dinner. The food is fantastic - imaginative, cooked competently and using...

This former Dutch homestead is set back from the main road between Plettenburg Bay (5 miles) and Knysna (20 miles). So it is perfectly placed for many "Garden Route" trips and activities. It is gloriously tranquil and excellently maintained. Our room was huge and gave out onto a delightful terrace adjacent to the very well appointed pool and gardens. It...

In the UK you would pay 2-3 times as much to stay in a place like this, we had room 1 which was huge and even had its own seating terrace. It`s a well thought out `hotel` with plenty of space and even enough sunbeds for everybody. Staff are very knowledgeable both about their own hotel and the surrounding area....

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.
