We spent a delightful week at Lilyponds last month. After travelling around the country it was a great place to relax . Our room overlooked the eponymous ponds - it really is a beautiful setting. The buildings are modern but ambience is achieved by a light airiness and local artefacts. The managers, Tony and Maria , are charming, informative and...

The Lily Pond Country Lodge is just what the doctor ordered - all rooms opening out onto their own patio area over looking the lily pond and surrounded by native bush. The decor is contemporary and the carefully chosen African artifacts on the walls a delight. We had a 'basic' garden room, which was better than many hotels superior rooms....

Our first lovely room had a roof leak during a downpour so we were upgraded at no additional expense. We loved Faith, Joseph, Jonathan, and Carol. Tony and Maria (managers) were helpful and informative. We had dinner at Lily Pond every night. Delicious and elegant. The level of service was so good it included washing our car at night. Highest...

This is a lovely location with friendly professional staff. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Rooms are lovely and poolside is very relaxing. It is a great place from which to explore the nearby national park. Beach is close by and Plettenberg Bay is just a short drive.

We stayed for two nights at the Lily Pond Country Lodge and it was nothing short of fantastic. We actually intended to tour around the environment in between the nights, but we loved our room and the property so much that we decided to just take it easy and relax. Make sure you eat at the restaurant, the food and...
