My fiancé and I stayed at Plett River lodge for two nights on a quick trip on the garden route. The lodge is very charming with river views out front and rambling lavender gardens out back. The rooms were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The staff were wonderful and the food at Down to Earth cafe is hard to beat....

Pros: - The patio decks were divine to chill out on without getting too sunburnt - they were also nice and private. - The claw bath was really nice and big. - It was nice and quiet when the kitchen staff had gone home and I felt very safe even travelling alone as a female. Cons: - Having a great...

We got here after dark and I called twice to inform them. Arrived at 8PM with the gate closed and no call box. After honking the horn many times, Maria finally came to the gate and we settled into the 'honeymoon suite', a cabin seperate from the courtyard units. The room was lovely with a huge shower, but the N2...

Always an excellent choice for accommodation just outside Plettenberg Bay on the N2 overlooking the Bitou River. We have stayed there a few times and we always return. We normally stay in the honeymoon suite because it is separate from the other rooms. But this time we had an additional adult and took two rooms next to each other with...

We were pleasantly surprised by this beautful space right next to the river. The rooms are spaceous with very nice decor and a lovely bath and shower. One can hear the sound of the sea and river which blocks out the slight noise of the road. The food at the restaurant is outstanding.

Plettenberg river lodge is right on the river, waking up to the most amazing views. The rooms are well designed and beds are comfortable.
