I go along with all the praise that this place gets in these reviews. The food is tremendous. obviously prepared by people with a real passion for their job. It's pretty much one set menu that changes each evening, with a vegetarian option, with up to four courses if you want them all. You're required to order before you go...

Laird's Lodge was the single friendliest place we have ever stayed. Staff were amazing the whole stay. The room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was brilliant and more than big enough to skip lunch! Although slightly outside Plettenberg Bay we were still very pleased to have stopped here. Would highly recommend

The staff are exceptionally solicitous, and the food above and beyond what we expected, both breakfast and dinner. Indeed, the dinners were so good that it would have been a mistake to have driven to Plettenberg...

Laird's is a great value and a lovely boutique hotel. Their attention to detail in every room of the lodge had me feeling as if...

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon trip to South Africa, though I wish we had stayed longer as we had such a fabulous time here! From when we arrived staff went above and beyond to help us settle in. They were incredibly polite and helpful and really made us feel comfortable. The grounds and accommodation...

We stayed at Lairds Lodge on a visit to the Garden Route in 2004 and loved the place. This was our first time back to the area since our original visit and we were interested to see if there had been any changes to the Lodge. We were delighted to find that the level of accommodation and the attentiveness of...

We stayed in lairds lodge for two nights during our honeymoon. It is located down a narrow Rd just off the main road to plet bay so it is really private and gives the air of seclusion even though it is so close to the main road. The main lodge/communal area is fantastic the design of the interior is beautiful....
