Good Day We stayed at the lodge and the only thing that was not pleasant is that there was no kitchen area as we have a 10 month old little girl. So no place to sterilise the bottles or a fridge for her food or milk. With being in the family room you would think this room will have this...

Plett River lodge was recommended by relatives who had stayed there recently, and we were given a warm welcome on arrival. The service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble and the view of the feeding birds from our riverside terrace was spectacular. The room was spotlessly clean if a little basic by European standards, but the one big omission...

The room we Bad was hughe and we had a fantastic view over the river. We had breakfast at the restaurant which is situated on the same estate. Unfortunatelly, they do not serve dinner so that we had to go out for dinner.

Very friendly staff. Location is very good - right on the N2, and setting is great. Restaurant on site, but opens too late (8am) for breakfast if you are on business and need to start earlier than holiday makers.

Friendly staff and good location. Loved the wooden decks on the river edge. Maria went out of her way to ensure that we were able to get the best room in the lodge! Will most definitely return to enjoy the beautiful sunrise.

The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms have a wonderful view and it is great to have our breakfast at our own veranda. Would certainly recommend to stay here.

One of the best lodges I've ever stayed in. The room is spacious and the bathroom is huge with a bath and shower. When you open your room patio door, you walk out on a lovely deck looking over the lake... PERFECTION!

Although travelling alone I got a family room as this was the only room available. It was a large comfortable space with a second bedroom and beautiful views of the Keurbooms river. There was a very comfortable couch in the room as well as lovely comfortable seating on the deck outside. Many evenings and mornings were spent sitting on the...
