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!

Loved staying at this quiet lodge at the river. Very friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone going to plett. Only think I would change is that I would like to have the option of including breakfast

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...

Negatives: no fridge, no phone, cleaning service is weak. Far from the city, internet fails often, breakfast not included. Positive: large room, great balcony, just in front of a beautiful lake, excellent restaurant at the property.

only the breakfast at the restaurant was not so perfect We arrived very late in the evening and there was not chance to eat anything. The Lodge is very nice and all rooms are modern and with love to details, very cosy.

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...
