Lairds Lodge Country Estate, Plettenberg Bay

Deluxe - £££


The Lairds Lodge Country Estate sits between the two coastal towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay: it’s perfectly positioned to make the most of these two iconic Garden Route destinations. There are plenty of coffee shops and local markets to find in Plett, as well as fantastic seafood restaurants. You won’t be short of things to do. You can head out on dolphin and whale-watching tours, observe the animals at Monkeyland and the Knysna Elephant Park, and take in the views at Robberg Nature and Marine Reserve.

The Lairds Lodge Country Estate is a large Cape Dutch-style homestead and is surrounded by 24 acres of land that you can explore. The entire hotel has a sophisticated but relaxed air thanks to its simple but pristine decoration. You can pick from either a Standard, Deluxe or Luxury en-suite room, depending on your budget and preference. All have a private terrace and a seating area with amazing views of the grounds, plus access to the garden pool.


Spend some time exploring the hotel’s grounds; you’re bound to find the perfect spot to relax. Dinner is served either in the traditional dining room or the cosy wine cellar; it’s four courses but is never a very formal affair. It’s a great chance to sample South African flavours and some traditional dishes. The local wines that accompany each dish are meticulously chosen.

Why We Love It

The Lairds Lodge Country Estate manages to be sophisticated without being stuffy. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy exploring the rest of Plett.
